Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit 2 vs. Nike ZoomX Invincible Run (2022)

These two models are undoubtedly among the most awaited running shoes in 2021! However, while both feature high-stack cushioning and Flyknit upper and are intended for daily training, they don’t offer the same level of support.

The Infinity Run is a stability shoe designed to prevent overpronation. As such, it’s more stable, but its cushioning is firmer and less bouncy. Unless you’re looking exclusively for a stability model, the Nike ZoomX Invincible Run is clearly superior.
