Wildcat fans you have the chance to show your school pride this college football season as Nike has dressed one of their most popular models in a UK theme. Check out the Nike React Element 55 “Kentucky” below.

We just got a look at the “Tennessee” iteration today and this marks the fifth school to join Nike’s NCAA Collection. With College Football season quickly approaching fans have the opportunity to show their school pride on their feet. Nike really did it up with this one and the whole collection looks to be a huge hit with fans and students.

The upper arrives in Wildcat blue as white contrasts are used throughout on the Nike Swoosh, laces, eyestays, heel clip and React midsole to create a fresh look. As a shoutout to the school, “Wildcats” is featured on the tongue as well as a “UK” logo can be seen on the inner midfoot as well as on the insoles. Overall a great looking React 55 and even better one for University of Kentucky fans.


We do not have an official release date for the NCAA collection but a release alongside the 2019 NCAA Football season is expected. If you’re interested in picking up a pair these will release at select retailers and Nike.com for a retail price of $130. If your school hasn’t been mentioned as of yet stay tuned to JustFreshKicks as we will cover all of the schools that will be featured in the NCAA collection.
