The Nike React Element 87 was first revealed at an Undercover fashion show earlier this year. Now, new images of the silhouette show that it may not be just a special collaboration, as standard release pairs are preparing to hit retailers soon.
Nike React is quickly becoming one of the brand’s best new technologies. With the Epic React making waves in the running community, and another solid silhouette on the way with the Odyssey React, Nike is beginning to transition the springy foam into more casual lifestyle models. The most anticipated of which is easily the Element 87, which was first revealed as a collaboration with Undercover earlier this year. Now, we have a good look at two standard release colorways coming soon.
The Nike React Element 87 is going to be a hit with sneakerheads. The shoe begins with the same loose, semi-translucent material used on Undercover pairs, one in all black and one coming in simple white. The black pair is monotonous throughout the upper, while the white pair mixes solid and see-through tones with a flash of red around the heels. Finally, each shoe is complete with a new React midsole marked by rubber inserts to add structure and support to the sole.
The Nike React Element 87 has not yet been scheduled for release, though they are expected to arrive at global retailers soon. The wild new silhouette does not have a price tag yet either, so there is still plenty of information about these in the dark. Check out the early images below for a better look at the two new colorways, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for an official release date.
