History

Now on their 4th iteration, the original Infinity React was launched with much fanfare back in January 2020, by using more React foam than any preceding running shoe, with a wider base, and a more curved outsole, it was claimed on launch that it could reduce running injuries.

 

Perhaps because so many shoes have followed this blueprint since, Nike don’t really push the injury angle anymore, what you do get though, consistently through the last four iterations, is a heavily cushioned, smooth ride, with a supportive build that makes it work for over pronators and neutral runners alike.

Closer Look

On the eye, a gorgeous Flyknit upper looks as comfy as it feels and makes the shoe a bit of a cross over shoe, it might be a serious running shoe, but it looks ready for social use too.

 

Available at launch in four men’s colour ways and three women’s, you can select your own look here at Pro:Direct.

 

Another way it looks great, and different from the preceding models, is the smoother sides to the midsole, the new ReactX foam in the midsole gives a brand new, faster looking design to the sidewalls.

 

Its the ReactX foam that is the big story here. Offering 13% more energy return and a whopping 43% lower carbon footprint than the previous version, this more sustainable material gives a softer, and more responsive feel underfoot, propelling you from stride to stride.

 

With high side walls, and an even wider fit than the previous model (especially through the midfoot) the Infinity 4 maintains its supportive approach that makes it suitable for overpronators, despite the high stack of soft foam.

 

The brand new Flyknit upper, helps to give extra support too. Described by Nike as having the best Nike Runing fit Flyknit yet, it provides serious lockdown where you need it, and a little stretch and comfort where you don’t. It also features a water repellent finish at the toe box to help keep your feet dry on wet runs.

 

A brand-new rubber outsole with a waffle design runs the full-length of the shoe, offering excellent traction, and a highly durable finish underfoot.

  

 

Conclusion

The Infinity has always been a smooth, supportive running shoe with a style and design that makes it wearable away from your daily runs. This remodel updates the style, improves the performance, and makes the whole thing more sustainable to boot.

 

From neutral runners who want the cushioning and durability its known for, to those that need a little help and extra support from their shoe, the Infinity 4 has re-modelled every single aspect of its construction for improvements throughout.

 

With the latest version you get a new, better fitting upper for support, comfort, and style, while the new more durable outsole ensures that style lasts. The brand-new midsole offers improved performance with an environmentally conscious build, making an entire package that is hard to miss, so from long term converts, to newcomers to the range, this is the time to grab a pair and see what all the noise is about.

Having suffered from Chronic Fatigue for over a decade, I am a recent convert to the joys of running. Although every run steals a lot of energy, the mental health and fitness benefits more than make up for it. My runs are mainly across the back of the nearby beaches, dodging between the tourists. When not geeking out over the latest running tech, you can find me trying new gins, making gins, or boring anyone within earshot about gin.
