Air Jordan releases 2019 set to make their retail debut in the coming weeks will also include this new colorway of the Jordan Apex-React. Unveiled last year, the Jordan Apex-React comes equipped with Jordan Brand’s Flight Utility design and technology, which were first introduced last year with the debut of the Air Jordan 33. Flight Utility has been referred to as the future of Jordan Brand’s design, which will now emphasize more on functionality and innovation, while still retaining their core DNA. One look at the Jordan Apex-React, or even the Proto-Max 720 or the Proto-React, makes it obvious that Jordan Brand has adopted a new design ethos.
In the case of the Jordan Apex-React, Jordan Brand seems to have designed it by blending together both iconic and modern design elements. For its uppers, Jordan Brand borrowed the Flyknit technology from Nike, as a result of which they are breathable, lightweight, stretchy and supportive. Each of its heels also features a strap that secures the wearer’s feet within the Apex-React, ensuring a snug fit and making the sneakers more stable. Its React cushioning has also been borrowed from Nike and it happens to be extremely lightweight and responsive, while its soles have rubber pods and a very elaborate traction pattern underneath them for improved gripping.
It seems that the Jordan Apex-React will be debuting among the upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019 in the colorway you see here. Earlier this month, Jordan Brand also revealed a “Triple Black” colorway, which may also end up hitting the shelves in the coming weeks. The colorway you see here is far lighter, namely because its Flyknit uppers and tongues are covered in a Light Cream shade, while Bio Beige appears over its heel straps. University Red can also be spotted over its heel and tongue tabs, and in the form of stitching on the strap. Reflective Silver-colored detailing can be spotted too, while its soles are plain Sail-colored.
