Nike have dropped a new edition of the Nike F.C. React. This time a “Desert Sand/Black/Bright Crimson” colourway that continues to bring style to the training scene.

Nike FC is a worldwide movement, and the international vibe is acknowledged on the heel pull, with multiple translations of “Nike Football” featured on either shoe.

Elsewhere on the upper it’s a perfectly balanced contrasting colourway, with Desert Sand outlines on the black Swooshes and top eyelets combining with “Nike FC” lettering on the tongue for a premium look. This is a shoe that’d be just as at home in the luxurious nightclubs of Dubai as it would a cage game in Camden. That’s kind of the point though: the shoe’s been designed to suit a range of scenarios, whether you’re a sneakerhead, a gym addict or a regular street baller.

Performance-wise, the clue’s in the name: the Nike FC React is all about Nike’s cutting-edge cushioning technology. First utilised in the much-loved Hyperdunk 2017 basketball shoe, React is a lightweight foam that provides the ultimate combination of energy return, cushioning, and durability. It’s been deployed in various executions since then, and here occupies the full length of the midsole, sitting atop a non-marking gum outsole with light tread – ideal if you’re heading indoors for your five-a-side fix to escape the bad weather.

With its mostly mesh construction, the Nike FC React’s also more breathable than many modern football shoes. It’s a little bit old-school, in a way – just a quality all-round trainer with the added style factor of Nike FC and a classy colour scheme. These won’t hang around for long.
