Sometimes finding inspiration in the process itself rather than what comes from it, Nike has begun to give many of its mainline heroes a spotlight of a more deconstructive approach. Silhouettes like the Air Jordan 1 have only recently begun turning into the shipping departments they hail from and now that same energy is making its way to the React Element 55 whose latest does little though to great effect. Uppers and mostly every accompanying accent is dyed black — this makes for more noteworthy contrast where it counts — with lateral swooshes miniaturizing by nearly half of its medial counterpart. Toe boxes bear hexagonal denotations alongside a grid graphic right where the model’s taping usual lies; similar motifs see their way to the tongue as well as the barely visible layer underneath the eye stay. React tech shows off a preference for dark neutrals as well, keeping in line with palettes along its departing treads. Grab a detailed look at the pair here and expect its schematic essence to likely make their way to Nike.com with select retailers sure to pick these up as well within the next few months.
