Latest Pickup: Nike Air Force 1 React "All-Star"

This year is a very special year for the NBA All-Star Game. In 2021, the 70th edition of the NBA All-Star Game will take place, and of course, this has to be celebrated in a big way, even if the current circumstances will hardly allow it. The special event will not take place in Indianapolis as first planned but in Atlanta on March 7th. And, because of Corona, fans will have to expect a TV event.

Nonetheless, big-name sporting goods manufacturers like Nike have already been preparing the high-profile iterations for weeks. These include some great silhouettes with impressive colourways. In the lineup we find, among others, this Nike Air Force 1 React.

The silhouette is still relatively fresh in the sneaker game, but has already received many exciting samples and also got off to a great start. Now, with this sporty look, the AF1 React gets even more attention. So, let's not waste any time and take a look at the Nike Air Force 1 React "All-Star".

Style - Inspired by the Hardwood Floor, Made for the Street

The 2021 NBA All-Star Game will look different, but because of the Nike Air Force 1 React "All-Star", we can still look forward to the game. That's because this year's iteration is inspired by the hardwood floor and looks simply brutal.

It's constructed similarly to the neighbouring Dunk High and Foamposite pairs and features a glossy finish, lightly patterned overlays with stripes, and ASW branding in "Black/Black/Barely Green". Along the toe box, eyestays, heels, and narrow side panels, a tumbled leather in black makes its way so as not to strongly distract from the other high-profile elements.

Indeed, the shiny overlays are clearly in the spotlight. Underneath are lines and circles inspired by the basketball court. Other features include a printed Swoosh with a black outline that blends in with the surroundings, as well as holographic NBA branding with a silver flair and Indianapolis lettering giving a nod to the event. You'll find it all on a comfortable and semi-transparent React sole in "Barely Green".

Technical Highlights

The Nike Air Force 1 React is a technical wonder. It features the ultra-comfortable React sole. It feels very comfortable and cushions every step to the utmost. The insole with the small protrusions feels particularly interesting at first. After that, you'll never want to take the sneakers off again.

Our Conclusion on the Nike Air Force 1 React "All-Star"

Not only does the colourway look brutal, but the technical features are also perfect. We especially love the shiny finish and the holographic emblems in the back. The release date is March 9th at Nike and selected retailers.
