Nike is going buck wild with their new React foam, a supremely bouncy midsole material. Earlier this year, we saw the new tech debut on the Moon Racer, now, the classic-inspired silhouette returns into an eye-catching new colorway.

Nike React technology is taking over. After slowly working its way on to a number of running, lifestyle, and even basketball silhouettes, the Swoosh’s latest foam soles are taking on a classic look next month. Titled the Moon Racer, we now have a closer look at both of the shoe’s launch colorways. The upper of the new Moon Racer is strikingly similar to the Nike Moon Shoe, one of the first prototype running shoes made with Bill Bowerman’s waffle sole. The upper is made from nylon with suede overlays around the eyestay, heel, and lateral toe side. Next, an abnormally large leather Swoosh takes over each side, along with a leather pull tab at the heel. This month, Nike has unveiled another colorway set to release in November. This time around, the smooth upper of the Moon Racer is covered entirely in a burnt orange tone, broken up only by white Swooshes. The React midsole arrives in white, with a flash of yellow on the upper half to even out the shoe’s color.


Nike’s innovative Moon Racer silhouette is currently expected to launch in new colorways on November 17th, 2018. The sleek new burnt orange colorway will retail for $150 from Nike and select retailers. Check out the official images below for a closer look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike React news.
