From the React Element 87 to the Daybreak, many a Nike silhouette seems to rely quite heavily on UNDERCOVER, letting the Japanese label help get them out of the door by way of their standard of quality colorways. Gyakusou has done the same with the running category, but even without such narrow focus, Jun Takahashi’s mainline has never disappointed, bringing back the sneaker boot, mixing influence with the Jungle Dunk, and now turning to new horizons as they enter 2020 — the year that marks the brand’s awaited return to form. Though far removed from their recent AW20 show, the collaboration hones in the newly introduced React Presto, giving it a trio of new schemes and modifications that stamp with the brands destructive signature.

Black, white, and a somewhat colorful purple fill the breadth, each outfitting in a mix of contrast paint splatters to their darker elements — a motif carried over from many a past work. Sole units, which get the brunt of the DIY’d treatment, carry over from the original though with an entirely new tread unit, one that mimics lug soles in an obvious nod to the trail. Elsewhere, cages retain their general shape, but the laces wrapped through opt out of their typical placement, looping from the forefoot upwards in a style that further fuels aggression alongside the reupholstered paneling. From ethereal, galaxy-esque prints on its toe caps to a ballistic mesh along the base, the entire kit removes and replaces the model’s once seamless presentation. Branding then arrives subtly unlike the bold-faced Helvetica of its predecessors, marking with an underscored “U” on the heel and finishing with their standard lock-up along the insole.

Grab a detailed look at all three right here and expect a release at Nike.com as well as select shops come January 28th.
