The original iteration of the Nike Air Force 1 will always be the best. However, the brand has done an excellent job updating the classis silhouette in recent years, and the new AF1 React D/MS/X is no exception.

Nike’s React cushioning took over in 2019, being featured on everything from brand new silhouettes to retro releases with a hidden twist. This week, the Swoosh unveiled the latest archival sneaker to receive the React update: the Air Force 1 Low. Forever a fan-favorite, the vintage basketball shoe takes on an interesting new look this week, from the reconstructed upper to the drop-in midsole. The shoe begins with a mesh base layer for the quarter panels, tongue, and toe box, before the standard leather overlays for the mudguard and heel are added. The Swoosh has been removed as a cutout, and instead appears solely as an oversized outline taking over the medial side of the shoe. The heel counter and lacing eyestays have a few added layers for support, while the midsole’s AIR branding is featured in a black bold script. Finally, the shoe is completed by a drop-in React midsole, entirely removeable from the shoe. On the underside, you’ll notice a Ramp Air unit embedded in the heel, adding some extra bounce to your step.


Nike’s latest iteration of the Air Force 1, subtitled React D/MS/X, is scheduled to release next weekend, on January 17th, 2020. As of this writing, pricing information for this new model has not yet been revealed, though we expect them to fall somewhere in the $150 range, releasing from both Nike and select retailers. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.
