Nike React Miler 2 Official Images

Here’s a first look at the Nike React Miler 2

Thanks to the IG account @rungearrun, we now have official images of the Nike React Miler 2. The first version of the Miler (which I reviewed here) has become one of my favorite long-run shoes, and the latest version looks to improve on that solid base. The first version worked great as a stability shoe, with it’s wide base and durable React foam.

Updated Upper

The update appears to be on the upper (top part of the shoe), which includes what looks like improved ventilation. My biggest gripe with the original was the complete lack of ventilation, so this appears to be a much-needed update. The midsole appears to be the same as last year. The tongue and lacing system look very similar compared to the original shoe.

Nike typically operates in two-year cycles, first updating the upper, then redesigning the midsole. Currently, the Pegasus 38 is getting a refreshed upper as well, leaving the possibility for a redesigned midsole in the Pegasus 39.

Release Date

There is no official release date yet, but based on last year’s release and the current cycle for Nike, look for these to hit shelves late spring.

Here’s a first look at the Nike Pegasus 38

The Nike Pegasus 38 is the next iteration of one of Nike’s most popular running shoes. After a significant refresh with the Pegasus 37, the 38 is poised to build on that solid base without many major changes. The midsole looks to be the same, with updates to the upper.

Thanks to the Twitter account Rolows_13, we have an initial image of the shoe:

Redesigned Upper

Based in the leaked image, the midsole appears to be the same as the Pegasus 37, but there does appear to be a new upper. The 37 had a full mesh material on the upper, but the 38 appears to have several different materials. The Swoosh is bigger and it looks like there might be some reflective elements on the updated version.

Release Date

The Pegasus 37 came out April 28th, 2020, so we can expect a spring release for the Pegasus 38. Stay tuned for updates.

Reactions

Some of the initial reactions from LetsRun.com were mixed:

“I like my 37 so have a good feeling about these ones” -fwnvbjkbjsd

“I don’t see the point in it myself. It is good for long slow runs but nothing else. The boston and even reebok shoes are far better (and much lighter).” -ozzyosbournesdentures

“I don’t get what they’re doing with that heel. On my Peg 37s with about 350 miles, the last 2cm or so of the heel looks untouched. There’s a decent amount of foam in the rear of the shoe that seems completely unnecessary. It’s just extra weight.” -shuffleshuffle

Nike ZoomX Invincible: FIRST LOOK

Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming Nike ZoomX Invincible

The Nike ZoomX Invincible has shown up in the first photos, via NikeTalk user TC1990. The trainer is a new addition to the Nike lineup, but appears to be part of the React Miler/Infinity React family, based on the silhouette, design and features.

Features

As the title suggests, the shoe’s main feature is the ZoomX foam, which made from blown Pebax, and featured in Nike’s most advanced shoes like the Vaporfly and Alphafly. There’s a very prominent heel collar, which looks super comfy. The outsole also appears to be a single piece of rubber, possibly to give the soft ZoomX foam some rigidity. But that’s pure speculation until we see these out in the wild. The outsole pattern is also interesting, as it almost looks like little cleats. Quite possibly a very grippy shoe.

The upper appears to be made of some kind of Flyknit or similar material. A heel clip locks the foot into the shoe, much like the Miler, and there4 appears to be a padded tongue as opposed to the thinner version we’ve seen in recent Nike releases.

Overall, this appears to be geared more for long/slow runs, as opposed to speed. It will be interesting to see the actual weight of the shoe, but it looks like a very comfortable fit, based on the ZoomX foam and the padding. How it differentiates from the React models (besides the React foam) will be interesting.

Nike Infinity React 2: FIRST LOOK

Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming Nike Infinity React 2

The Nike Infinity React 2 is the next iteration of one of the more hyped running sneaker releases from Nike almost a year ago. The original Infinity featured React foam, a sock-like upper and a mix of stability and lightness got a lot of runners excited.

Personally I was not a fan; after about 100 miles, I retired it because it seemed to put a ton of pressure on my calves and achilles tendons. It felt like I was running in sand, and my heel would slide around a lot in the shoe. I found the Nike React Miler to be a much better everyday training shoe.

Well, Nike is back with an update that appears like it might be directly addressing those issues with the Nike Infinity React 2.

New Features

At first glance, the Nike Infinity React 2 has some major updates. The upper looks a little more solid than the original’s thin Flyknit material. To counteract this, there appears to be some ventilation on the forefoot area. The laces also appear to be secured by some kind of Flywire setup. There’s now a tongue instead of the previous full booty knit that just wrapped around the ankle.

The biggest change I can see to the Nike Infinity React 2 comes in the heel area, where a new padded collar should help lock the heel into the shoe and prevent the previous issue of sliding around too much, and reduce the chafing the heel.

Similarities

React is in the name of the shoe, so it’s no surprise that full-length React foam returns. The shoe also appears to keep it’s width, in order to retain it’s purpose as a stability shoe.

Reactions

The reactions online has been pretty positive so far. A few notables:

  • “Looks like a solid update, but wondering how much weight they added.” -the_real_dad_runner on IG
  • “About time! I just bought some and I was slipping all over the place, they had to go back 😔 looking forward to these 😁” -daleruns_ on IG
  • “It looks even better than 1 version. Great news !!!” -wojtech10 on IG
  • “The Nike Infinity React 2 looking like a big improvement from a lockdown perspective – can’t wait!” -dpl_runs on IG
  • “Lockdown was perfect for me in version 1 but I can see why they have done this tweak. Not too bothered if additional weight as I use this shoe for easy miles where I want the pace to be very slow.” -marcusnye on IG
