Nike Epic Phantom React Flyknit was launched on 2 May this year. The first look I noticed before the launch made me think of this as my everyday shoes. Its minimal appearance fashionably amazed me because now I am so into minimalist. I noted to myself since the day I read the article that I really want the pair.
The features of this pair are suitable for being an all-round shoe. It is the first laceless version of Nike Epic React Flyknit which is my all time favourite workout shoe. In my opinion, getting rid of the lace is a very respectable idea especially for those who have to tie a shoe lace every 20 minutes like me. For this version, Nike has made it to be slip-on which I believe it looks more minimal, easy to wear, physically fitted to me. Color of my choice to go for the Nike Epic Phantom React Flyknit is Light cream color. It looks so minimal, easy to wear and all-purpose. Most importantly, I rarely see Nike offers this color for their shoes. This color makes this shoe even more all-round. It looks polite, minimal, yet stylish. You can go to the gym and hop in a car straight to the work with the same shoes.
As shown in the picture, I wear my light cream Nike Epic Phantom React Flyknit with Harlem pants and shirt as I want to convey my minimal style.
If you think this is too dull, adding sunglasses and bag can give you more details and complete the look. Walking with this shoe won’t give you any pain at all because its lightweight foam midsole will support you with a very bouncy and firm cushion.
Nike first introduced Flyknit technology to the market in 2012 with the target of being a leader in breathable, high performance, light weight material while reducing waste by precisely stitching a whole upper shoe that can reduce 60% less weight comparing to the traditional method of shoe making. Since then, I become a real fan of this technology. For me, I think it is not only performance-oriented but it also looks very nice. By saying I am an admirer of Nike Flyknit, I just checked shoe shelf and realized I have more than 10 Flyknit especially the “Oreo” (Combination of black, white, and grey).
If you like a minimal design on your running shoe like me, check out the Epic Phantom React Flyknit. When it was dropped on nike.com and other retailers, It was sold out in a blink of an eye. I almost haven’t get this color at first sell, however there are other colors like white, coral, black or purple to choose from.
