Trusted sneaker retailer Nike has launched the new vividly-hued Nike React Vision in four bold colourways for women. True to its name, this powerhouse sneakers incorporates more of its trademark React cushioning foam compared to its predecessor — the Nike React Element 87, while also employing a similarly futuristic utilitarian aesthetic that follows Nike’s ethos of matching style with substance.
The result of Nike’s continual experimentation on its own creations results in this new sneaker, that offers surreal comfort with the aforementioned abundant use of the React foam and an ultra-plush tongue cradling every facet of the foot. The addition of Nike’s own revolutionary seamless mesh on its upper also adds to its unparalleled ease in use even when worn all day.
Clockwise from top left: NIKE REACT VISION IN WASHED CORAL/SAPPHIRE/LASER ORANGE/HYPER CRIMSON ($209), NIKE REACT VISION IN PALE IVORY/VOLT/LASER CRIMSON/BLACK ($209), NIKE REACT VISION IN BLACK/DARK SMOKE GREY/GRAVITY PURPLE/SAIL ($209), NIKE REACT VISION IN PURE PLATINUM/LIGHT THISTLE/SAFFRON QUARTZ/RUST FACTOR ($209).
The colourways, on the other hand, are said to be inspired by Mexico City’s famed Casa Gilardi, with richly textured fabrics, a transparent heel clip, and distorted sides, contributing to its overall gorgeously exaggerated look. The barely discernible subtle pattern on its classic running silhouette, however, is said to be a homage to poison dart frogs, which makes for a mind-boggling amalgamation of inspirations that somehow works.
