Jordan Brand has mainly used React foam on new silhouettes like the Proto React and Apex React as of late, but now they’re calling upon its services for a modern-day interpretation of one of their most classic sneakers, the Air Jordan 1. Although the aptly-titled Air Jordan 1 React takes its namesake’s overall upper shape and offers an inherently familiar white/black/red color scheme, it boasts a brand-new construction that’s unquestionably all its own. Both the raised rubber midfoot Swoosh and the thick rope laces are super-sized, while red pull tabs run the length of the throat and appear on the heel; the former featuring Jordan text branding while the latter is left unadorned. A small red Nike tag hangs off the medial side’s collar flap, and even the white base gets in on the action, combining a canvas midfoot/collar with a leather toebox and overlays. Down below, a thick white React foam midsole with a noodled traction pattern and a single line of stitching offers modern-day comfort. You can expect these React-equipped Air Jordans to arrive on Nike.com/other stockists July 1st for $170 USD, so check ’em out in detail below while you wait.
