New upper textures/patterns and bold accents are the name of the game for Nike’s React Element 55 so far this year, and the latest pair to be unveiled features both in spades. Although the base is dressed in a simple black mesh, it also features a tonal checkerboard pattern — interweaving mesh diamonds with printed overlays for a unique touch of flair. It’s not just the foundation that’s interesting here though. The accents join the fun as well, using a blend of two crimson tones on the tongue, Swoosh, and rear outsole plugs, while a classic volt appears on the heel taping and front outsole plugs. All the details are then brought together by a comfy and stylish white React foam midsole. With many compelling colors surfacing and a rumored Kendrick Lamar collaboration on the way, the 55 is sure to play a big part in the Beaverton Brand’s spring lifestyle release plans over the coming months. You can expect this pair to release on Nike.com soon for $130 USD.
