Before Nike was Nike, it was Blue Ribbon Sports, and Nike Running is continuing to salute its earliest days with a new take on the React Infinity Run. Joining other recent BRS-inspired styles like the ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% and Zoom Pegasus Turbo II, this commemorative React Infinity Run blends modern tech with classic Nike Sportswear style.
Built from a white Flyknit, the socklike uppers equip a grey synthetic heel and midfoot overlay for extra structure. This grey layer also serves as a sounding board for a majority of the shoe's accents — namely the outline of a navy Swoosh and a three-pack of alternate graphics: a small Swoosh, a red rising sun logo with blue lines and a flowing BRS motif. Under this trifecta is a full "Blue Ribbon Sports Track Club" hit.
Heel tabs add "Infinity React" in navy, and insoles add blown-up versions of the heel's rising sun (left foot) and BRS (right foot) graphics. Red and blue TPU shanks provide sturdy support, and a white React Foam midsole ensures long-lasting, ultra-soft cushioning. Blue rubber outsoles finalize the style.
The Nike React Infinity Run "Blue Ribbon Sports" is available now via Nike Japan, and retails for $160 USD.
