Following the “Schematic” iteration of its React Element 55, Nike is back with a brand new colorway. This time around, the American footwear giant has given the silhouette a sleek “Anthracite/Blue Fury” makeover, adding bright teal accents atop ashy black uppers.
Starting at the top of the shoe, bright teal bubblegum highlights are placed along leather eyelet panels, complemented by sleek round laces that come in a lighter shade. The striking palette is continued over the diagonal seam at the rear quarter as well as the leather backstay. In contrast to the bold embellishments, sleek black textiles appear throughout the body, rounded out by taped edges and tonal cut-out Swooshes — other accents include “nike react” branding stamped at the corner of the angular tongue and a wine-color rubber overlay around the heel. All of these details sit above an essential React midsole, equipped with rubber pods for added durability and traction.
The Nike React Element 55 “Anthracite/Blue Fury” is currently available at Nike’s website for $130 USD.
