The Nike React Miler is back with its second model, using the same cushioning and design as its predecessor. Although it is a very similar shoe to the original Miler, the 2 features a redesigned upper for a more streamlined design. This model also stands out for its breathability, durability and stability, especially for long rides.
Thanks to the Nike React technology used for the midsole of the shoe, the Miler 2 offers a comfortable and smooth running. While the energy return wasn’t great, runners appreciated the cushioning for long runs and good arch support from the midsole design. Although the shoe is not a pronator model, it provides good support throughout the run. The redesigned upper is less bulky, made with a lightweight mesh that allows feet to breathe. However, with a weight of 312 g (men’s version), the M2 is not exactly light (if you are looking for a more agile shoe, the Invincible Run is more appropriate). Finally, the outsole of the Miler 2 is very durable and provides solid traction on urban surfaces.
Runners who tested the Miler 2 were overwhelmingly satisfied with their experience, reporting precise foot support and great midsole comfort. The design of the shoe and the choice of colors also appealed. The main drawback of the shoe? Users note a narrow design, mainly in the toe area. In addition, for some, the cushioning is too imposing and makes the shoe bulky, when it is already heavy.
In summary, the Nike React Miler 2 is a good option for those who like comfortable and stable cushioning, despite its somewhat narrow upper and bulky design.
- Abrasion resistant rubber provides sure grip and protects the platform from bitumen wear.
- The midsole displays React : a specially soft foam developed by Nike.
Upper part (upper)
- The technical mesh allows targeted support for your foot while providing good air circulation in the shoe when the speed increases.
- A midfoot band provides comfortable support and reinforces the structure of the upper for durability.
- The rigid heel counter comfortably cradles the foot for a more personalized fit during training.
