You Can Cop the Jordan Proto-React Right Now in Japan
Fusing together the essence of the React Element 87 and a futuristic space-travel aesthetic, Jordan Brand’s new Proto-React has hit shelves earlier than expected.
Inspired by astronaut suits, the Proto-React upper combines nylon, exposed stitching, and a durable strap, resulting in a utilitarian vibe that’s more suited to the streets than the court. The React foam sole unit gets a unique traction pattern, further elevating the moon-boot look.
The Proto-React is now available in Japan at atmos’ Sports Lab stores. A global rollout is set to follow in the coming weeks. We’ll holler when we get more info.
