Nike Odyssey React Women’s Running Shoes | Grey/Orange
The Nike Odyssey React Women’s Running Shoe provides crazy comfort that lasts as long as you can run. Its Nike React foam cushioning is responsive yet lightweight, durable yet soft. This attraction of opposites creates a sensation that not only enhances the feeling of moving forwards, but makes running feel fun, too. The upper of the Nike Odyssey React is built with a lightweight, breathable fabric instead of the premium Flyknit featured on the Nike Epic React.
Circular-knit uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforations in the fabric increase airflow to create a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. No-sew overlays reinforce the seams, without adding weight, and deliver a streamlined look. A neoprene bootie construction swathes the midfoot in snug, sock-like comfort, sitting smoothly against the skin to reduce the risk of rubbing and blisters; because we know how those can ruin your day. The heel clip secures the rearfoot; it helps to anchor you to the midsole and reduce in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. TPU covers the toe to improve durability against scuffing, and a reflective strip is splashed across the heel, increasing your visibility to passing vehicles and keeping you safe on those low-light road runs.
A full-length platform of React cushioning resides underfoot to deliver feathery resilience plus smooth responsiveness. To produce this startlingly lightweight and springy midsole, crafted from synthetic rubber, Nike listened to the voice of the athlete. Their in-house sports research lab plugged footstrike data into a proprietary algorithm that determined how much cushioning was needed where. They simulated testing on (about) one hundred possible shoe geometries to quickly determine the handful they knew would work best for most runners and then merged the science with an elegant design, intended to feel like a slipper on a mattress. The reactive nature of this clever midsole material means it absorbs impact and then expels it back out for a bounce-like effect. This energy-return technology reduces the use of superfluous muscle power, diminishing fatigue and enhancing performance, keeping you going for longer. Soft, generous and substantial, React will spare your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving concrete and infuse every stride with the kind of zealous power that is often elusive in the running world. The heel of the midsole extends beyond the periphery of the upper to form a ledge, a consequence of every runner’s perpetual requirement for stability. Nike have increased the width of the midsole to enhance support where it is most crucial, providing the wearer with a supportive base to run confidently on. By reinforcing their stabilising ‘ledge’ with the injection moulded TPU heel clip, the brand have created a shoe that supplies cushion-complementing support to the supinator, the pronator and the neutral runner.
A lightweight outsole completes the shoe; its geometric, athlete-informed traction pattern helps evenly disperse impact to provide a smooth transition and a soft feel, uniting with Nike React technology to support your foot through footstrike. Rubber covers the heel and forefoot to enhance durability, resisting the traumas of heel-strike and toe-off to provide you with a reliable and long-lasting running buddy. For the athletes who crave supple comfort and lighter weight in one slick package, choose the Nike Odyssey React.
