Nike’s React technology has been making waves on the sneaker scene ever since its first inception. In that time, it’s adorned sought-after colabs, speedy runners, bubbly Air Max models, and even a few of ACG’s silhouettes. With the foam causing the ripple it has, and the expansion it’s seen recently, there would have to be a slew of unreleased silhouettes in Team Swoosh’s arsenal just sitting there. Today, we’ve received a good look at one, thanks to a sneaky industry insider.
Courtesy of yankeekicks, we’ve just been blessed with some tasty pics of what some are calling the Nike React Live. At first glance, the most eye-catching detail is the medial text which is reminiscent of the many Off-White collaborations. Another obvious ode to Virgil Abloh’s design language is the addition of printed notes about the position of the Swoosh branding.
The materials used on the shoe are quite technical. The base looks to be made entirely out of ripstop material with synthetic overlays. Down below, the React foam features grooves and has been layered with an icy blue cover.
So far, little more is known about the silhouette. As it’s unreleased, we don’t know whether it will ever see the light of day but, if it does, we’ll be sure to let you know asap.
