NIKE REACT VISION: STREET MAGIC WITH BILLY MENEZESNIKE REACT VISION: STREET MAGIC WITH BILLY MENEZES
A rising star on London's sneaker scene, young magician Billy Menezes has carved a niche for himself by colliding his two passions to create a unique hybrid of contemporary youth culture and old school sleight-of-hand. Honing his craft by sneaking into some of the city's most exclusive events and performing for whoever he found inside, Billy is no stranger to an unforgiving audience. Having shared his talent with some of the biggest names in music and fashion - from Skepta to A$AP Mob to Kate Moss - Billy has mastered the art of illusion and built his confidence from the ground up. A truly 2020 illustration of the magic you can make for yourself when you adopt Nike's 'just do it' attitude as your own personal mantra, at just 16 years old Billy is already making his mark and establishing himself as magic's one to watch. Enter Nike React Vision: a subversive take on one of the Swoosh's most exciting young silhouettes, heralding in a new decade with a re-engineered aesthetic and future-ready materials mix. Built with surrealist comfort in mind, the React Vision was recalibrated by Nike's design renegades in the D/MS/X division at the sportswear monolith's Beaverton HQ. Both born of the special type of magic that comes from ripping up the rulebook, Billy Menezes and the React Vision come together in this exclusive Nike story shot on location in the heart of the British capital.
