Following the release of the Pegasus 37 during the quarantine period in 2020, Swoosh made a point to encourage sneakerheads to maintain their exercise routine by introducing a brand new silhouette to the React lineup.

Swoosh introduced the all-new React Phantom Run Flyknit 2 in light of the already-gained popularity of the previous React Silhouettes. However, the sock-line/laces upper remains the same, with the exception of the side walls, which are replaced with eight Flywire cords that run across the midfoot to ensure that people wearing these kicks feel secure with every stride.

These sneakers were released in March 2022, and went on sale at different retail sites for $140.

Pegasus Trail 3 was an instant hit with the majority of runners. These kicks are the go-to option for a variety of versatile purposes, such as a long walk or a quick commute to work. This silhouette also provides a more cushioned ride for long distances.

The sneaker's midsole features Nike React Foam along its entire length, which is the silhouette's winning point in terms of giving extra comfort. This React foam is nearly flawless. It provides excellent cushioning while remaining adaptive and not sloppy in any way. As a result, these trainers are also ideal for use on the runway, whether for long runs to accumulate mileage or for light-speed jogs.

The Pegasus Trail 3 was released in June 2021, and is available for sale at the official SWOOSH e-site for $130.

3) Air Max 90 Gore-Tex Cargo Khaki

The Nike Air Max 90 collection is popular among many sneakerheads for its extra cushioned construction. The kicks can be identified by flexible urethane pockets filled with pressurized gas visible from the outside of the shoe. The urethane pockets are intended to provide underfoot cushioning.

Many versions of the Air Max 90 have the same construction, including the Nike Air Max 90 Gore-Tex Cargo Khaki. This silhouette comes with additional Gore-Tex material, which provides a coat of breathable insulation to keep you feeling warm for longer in case the temperature drops.

The sneakers were released in October 2022, and retailed for $170.

4) Downshifter 11

This kick is the budget brainchild of the Swoosh label. The Nike Downshifter 11 is an excellent sneaker for those who are just starting out in training or running, as well as those looking for a low-cost running shoe. In terms of construction, it gives comfortable midfoot support and is very lightweight.

The sneaker has a padded tongue that is aligned with the inner lining of the upper for a secure fit, and when you tie the lace, the stitched midfoot layout tightens around your foot, providing support through the lateral midfoot and arch.

The Downshifter 11 was released in 2021 for $60 and is available at select retail stores.
