A couple of weeks ago, the Internet was graced with ecomm images revealing a React-equipped Air Force 1. At that time, it was only speculated how Nike’s recent cushioning tech would be integrated into the almost 40-year-old sneaker, but now the Swoosh have revealed all.
It turns out the midsole has been all but cored out, making way for an extra-thick insole made from React foam for a super cushy ride. It’s not an Air Force 1 if it doesn’t have Air, so a small pod that Nike are calling Ramp Air is located at the heel. A fun little addition is the wavy detailing at the toe and heel outsole sections where the star tread once was.
The Air Force 1 React rolls out at Nike retailers soon, on January 17.
