Leading up to the sure-to-sell-out release of the Nike React Element 87, we recently received a detailed on-foot look at the highly-anticipated silhouette.
Set to release in “Sail Light Bone” and “Anthracite Black,” the latest look emphasizes the functional design elements found on the React Element 87. The sleek look of the upcoming sneaker is built around a new state-of-the-art footwear technology developed by Nike that challenges conventional footwear construction. Displaying a stripped-down aesthetic, the upper of the shoe is constructed of a TPE yarn translucent textile with exposed stitching, accented by contrasting exterior heel taping and trail running laces. While a newly-developed drilled React sole with an embedded segment rubber outsole provides the shoe with a new avenue of superior cushioning and traction.
Priced at $160 USD, the Nike React Element 87 launches on June 21 via SNKRS in Asia, Latin America and Greater China, SNEAKERS in Europe, and select Nike Sportswear retailers. A North American drop will follow on July 13 through SNKRS and select retailers.
