Nike’s EXP-X14 silhouette is the perfect embodiment of what the Swoosh is trying to do in the running space right now, constantly experimenting and innovating in an effort to produce footwear that is both purposeful and aesthetically pleasing. Its name further tells that tale, at the EXP unsurprisingly stands for experiment, while X14 represents Beaverton’s internal code name for its cutting edge React cushioning. Combine that with other data driven technology, a semi-translucent upper that harkens back to the Zoom Fly and the React Element 87, and another attractive color scheme, and the Swoosh should have another successful lifestyle-running crossover on their hands.
This time around, Persian Violet and Team Orange interact with one another throughout its upper to create the most colorful selection this young model has had to offer to this point. Hits of yellow sit atop Steve Prefontaine’s unprecedented mile time etched into the lateral side as well as on its tongue Swoosh for even more flavor. Alternating colors appear on the lateral Swoosh marks of both shoes, creating a whimsical aesthetic that adds to this creatively-colored selection. Enjoy a comprehensive look at this brand new EXP-X14 today and head over to eBay to grab a pair early if you cannot wait until their official release this Saturday, September 1st from retailers the likes of Rock City Kicks and Nikestore.
