Nike EXP-X14 Running Shoe for Men and Women

Nike continues to stay at the forefront of running innovation with the introduction of its latest lifestyle runner, the EXP-X14. Like the Epic React, the EXP-X14 is a performance running shoe that blurs the lines between function and fashion. This new silhouette is a modern take on Nike’s Zoom Drive (a late-90s running shoe) combining modern tech with transparent design elements for a futuristic feel.

Nike EXP-X14 Runner Technology

The design and technology of the shoe emulate some of Nike’s best-selling styles. The midsole is outfitted with React technology - Nike’s most responsive cushioning ever. Nike React is the brand’s ultimate foam when it comes to running shoes, designed to provide lightweight, durable, responsive cushioning for all-day comfort. In addition, an exposed TPU plate and a slim heel design is a nod to the ultra-fast Zoom Vaporfly 4% that is known to be widely used by professional athletes for marathons and long distance running.

Nike EXP-X14 Runner Design

The numbers "N3546" etched on the shoe’s medial side are meant to represent American long-distance runner Steve Prefontaine’s fastest time in the mile—3 minutes and 54.6 seconds—and also nods an acknowledgement to Nike’s rich history in running.

Perforations on the side panel allow for breathability while the translucent upper is flexible and ultralight allowing runners to go the distance without added weight. While the sneaker is designed for performance running, it can be used as a casual running sneaker or as an everyday comfort staple.

What does Nike EXP-X14 stand for?

  • The inspiration behind the name for Nike EXP-X14 can broken down into two parts: “EXP” stands for experiment which was essentially how the Nike Sportswear designers adapted performance running features into a lifestyle shoe.
  • The second half of the name “X14” was the original internal codename given to the brand’s React technology (which is also used in the EXP-X14’s midsole to provide all-day comfort).

The Nike EXP-X14 debuts July 2018 in blue volt, rose gold and black/red and more colorways. Cop the drop at KicksUSA for shoes that will have you looking and feeling fast!
