Nike‘s Air Force 1 React D/MS/X is a highly-wearable update to the timeless Air Force 1, offering subtle technical improvements throughout without altering the recognizable silhouette. A Quick Strike version of the style is coming to stores in early May, offering some extra touches to those looking to collect another version of the shoe.
Breathable white uppers are constructed from panels of mesh and suede, with lenticular hits appearing on the heel tab, tongue and laces for bolstered visibility. Furthermore, unlike past AF1 React D/MS/X silhouettes, this new iteration features “REACT” branding on the heel panels. The React-cushioned sole unit is executed in icy translucent blue, offering a refreshing summer accent to the otherwise monochrome sneaker.
Meanwhile, the original Air Force 1 is set to receive a semi-polka-dotted makeover by way of BEAMS’ removable tongue kilties.
