New: The Nike InfinityRN 4 features the brand’s latest ReactX foam
For years, Nike’s been pushing the boundaries of finding best possible running shoe while cutting down its carbon footprint. Seems like they found a balance with the all-new Nike InfinityRN 4.
It’s been a long five years of research and development for the Swoosh which resulted into their latest React foam, ReactX, which is seen in their latest sneaker. The new foam cuts down its carbon footprint by at least 43% versus Nike Reac, and this was achieved through an update in their manufacturing process of injecting rather than compressing the foam into a mold. While compression molding delivers more responsive foams with higher energy return, it creates more waste and creates a larger carbon footprint.
The Nike InfinityRN 4 features this ReactX foam and an all-new Flyknit upper, offering maximum airflow, breathability, flexibility and proper containment. The flyknit fabric also uses an average of 60% less waste, while the upper comes with an increased volume in the toe, a midfoot support system and a water-resistant liner.
The Nike InfinityRN 4 is now available in men’s and women’s sizes at Nike doors and the Nike app, with the shoe retailing for Php 8,895. One great thing to note here is that a fellow kababayan, Kevin Reyes was part of the design team behind the InfinityRN 4.
