Nike’s brand new React Element 87 sneaker was originally debuted as part of a five-piece collaborative collection with Jun Takahashi’s Undercover label. Upon that reveal, the sneaker internet has gone absolutely crazy, making early claims for its sneaker of the year potential. Since then, the Element 87 has been revealed in two in-line colorways that tone things down a substantial amount from the aforementioned Undercover collabs.
Sporting the Swoosh Brand’s all-new React foam cushioning, it is this sneaker’s semi-translucent upper that is responsible for a large majority of its appeal. Its unconventional lacing system sits just underneath its asymmetrical and jagged tongue, while miniature Swooshes can be found on its toebox and heel. Another intriguing design element of note is its cork insole that will undoubtedly add to this new sneakers incredible comfort.
