Model: Epic React “Dusk to Dawn”
Key Features: An extended midsole and an upper that sits directly atop a foam midsole, designed to give runners more cushioning and more traction, at a fraction of the previous weight.
Release Date: June 14
Buy: Only available to those in the U.A.E. & Saudi Arabia, sneakerheads must complete two nighttime runs (between 6pm to 6am) of at least 2KM, track their progress in the NRC app, and follow the instructions here for a chance to win one of 30 pairs.
Editor’s Notes: Lebanese-born and Saudi Arabia-based artist Ali Cha’aban was tapped by Nike to design an ultra-limited pair of Nike Epic React sneakers. They will be given away to runners based in the U.A.E. or Saudi Arabia upon completion of two nighttime runs longer than 2km.
While the shoe itself is a beauty, featuring a white base with hits of deep blue and glittery gold on the midsole, Swoosh, and lace cage, the fact that it’s incredibly limited will certainly help with the hype.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to be based in the U.A.E. or Saudi Arabia to even have a chance of winning these sneakers so, either get yourself a plug or be prepared to pay resell to get your hands on these.
