Nike React Miler 1st Run Review, Shoe Details, and Comparisons

Article by Sam Winebaum

Nike React Miler ($130)
The React Miler is a brand new model from Nike. It has a full React midsole with a 31mm heel 21mm forefoot, 10mm drop. It weighs approximately 10.65 oz / 302 g in a US9 based on our sample US8.5, so almost an ounce heavier than the Infinity React and over 2.5 oz more than the Epic React.
The upper is a relatively simple mesh with a pair of support straps and a conventional very secure heel counter and hold.
 
Outsoles Top: React Miler Bottom: React Infinity 
The outsole has decoupling more reminiscent of the Pegasus than the Infinity React or Epic React, both with a flatter underfoot profile. It has full coverage of what appears to be a consistently firm rubber which likely also adds to inherent stability. 
The inherent stability comes from the vertical medial side walls and a thin pliable insert of what I am calling a more "neutral" shoe than the knee stability oriented React Infinity where among other elements the similar if a bit longer side rail heel clips on both sides are definitely more noticed, and seemed to impede transitions more than in the React Miler where I didn't really notice them at all,

The React Miler is highly cushioned, stable, and transitions well. It is on the heavier side so best uses should be for recovery runs and for heavier runners seeking a stable well cushioned platform without obtrusive stability elements.

Hi ! thanks for the great reviews as usual. looking forward to the full performance review !

I'm looking for a pair for my long/recovery run, to pair with the Salomon Sonic 3 balance that I love. I'm hesitating between these, the react infinity or the Triumph 17, which one would you recommend ? I run a lot in forrest and path and i'm looking for a comfort and secure pair with a smooth cushioning for slow long runs.

Thanks in advancea and cheers from France
