When the Nike React Infinity went on sale a year ago, it came with a bold claim – that it would help runners avoid injury. A year later, Nike is back with a new version of the everyday training shoe, with some updates to the upper to make the shoe more supportive.

To find out more, we sat down (virtually) to chat with Bret Holts, Vice President of Nike Running Footwear, and Nike Sport Research Lab footwear research director Jay Worobets.

What has changed?

‘The changes are pretty minimal and that was the point,’ Holts tells Runner's World. ‘We knew from underfoot cushioning, stability and protection that we had a great product and we had great feedback from runners, so we wanted to ensure we kept that consistency and kept all those things that runners said they enjoyed about that first iteration.’

Under Armour TriBase Reign 2 vs Nike Metcon 6: one of these workout shoes is worth your hard earned moneyBefore we go any further, it's best to point out what the difference is between the best workout shoes and the best running shoes. After all, you can run in workout shoes and work out in running shoes, right? Absolutely, but there is a difference in performance and comfort levels when using the right shoes for the right type of training.

Like the previous model, the Infinity Run 2 uses Nike React Foam, which is designed to give runners decent underfoot cushioning. The structure of the shoe is similar, too – a wider toebox and heel, and an exaggerated heel-toe rocker geometry to help runners get their foot on and off the ground quicker. Nike says, ‘the heel clip, midsole and outsole remain the same as the previous React Infinity, which provides cushioning for impact absorption and a soft ride, wide forefoot nets for stability without medial posting and rocker geometry for a fluid transition.'

So what has changed? ‘It was really more about minor tweaks to the upper and ensuring that the upper felt as protective, as supportive and as cushioned as underfoot,’ Holts explains. There's additional support in the toebox and Nike says it has made the vamp [front of the shoe] and midfoot more breathable. The tongue and collar of the shoe now feature ‘lofted foam for a more supportive and comfortable fit and feel’, says Holt. Finally, Nike has incorporated ‘Flywire cables’, which the company says give the runner more precise support and security.

What about injury prevention?

Some members of the RW team were sceptical about the injury-reducing claims made by Nike when the Infinity React was launched a year ago; Holts is happy to go into detail about the study behind the assertion. Conducted by the British Columbia Sports Medicine Research Foundation (BCSMRF), the study divided 226 runners of all ages and abilities into two groups as they trained for a half marathon. Half wore the Nike Structure 22, a traditional motion-control shoe, and half wore the new Nike React Infinity Run. The findings showed that runners wearing the React Infinity had a 52 per cent lower injury rate than those in the motion-control shoe, with wearers noting that they felt less pain in their knees and feet.

When asked if the new version of the shoe, and indeed the Zoom X Invincible Run, Nike's other injury-reducing innovation, had similar statistics, Worobets outlines the latest trends. ‘In 2020, we did a similar study with more than 300 athletes and we tested the first Infinity, the second Infinity 2 and the Invincible, and we found that the injury rates between all three were the same – that low injury rate that was carried over from the first Infinity.’

Holt adds, ‘I think what we do know is running-related injuries and rates of injuries haven’t drastically changed over the last 3-4 decades, which means the product solutions that we had been providing didn’t really make an impact. What they did make an impact on was a positive running experience – sometimes those medial posted shoes were heavy, a bit clunky in transition and overall not super enjoyable, so we’re taking a different approach. We are again going back to those principles of maximising and prioritising the cushioning in the shoe, as well as a more stable and supportive base, wider geometries and, again, that rocker geometry really accentuating that smooth transition that makes the run a little more enjoyable.’

Who are they best suited for and what do they feel like on the run?

‘I think this shoe is really created for that runner looking for an ultra-cushioned, ultra-protective but really democratic experience,’ says Holt. ‘We have a lot of our elite athletes putting in many miles in this shoe, but it’s a great shoe for someone getting started and it’s really designed and built to accommodate all runners of all levels.’

We've completed a few runs in these and our initial thoughts are that fans of the Nike React Infinity Run won’t be disappointed. The padded tongue and collar are comfortable additions, as is the new lacing system, which allows you to really pull the upper tight to the foot. We did find the arch support felt slightly more exaggerated, yet the wide platform and the guide rails still felt remarkably reassuring.

As with the earlier version of the shoe, we’d say they are best suited for beginners, or those looking for a light, everyday training shoe. For more experienced runners, you’d probably want to opt for something springier and faster for tempo runs and races.

We'll be updating this review once we've clocked a few more miles in the shoe.
