In commemoration of Easter Sunday, Hong Kong-based sneaker customizer Xylar Chan of XYLAR Studio has gone ahead and channeled the festive holiday within a pair of Nike React Element 87s that utilize corduroy. Inspired by Sean Wotherspoon’s inventive Nike Air Max 1/97, this specific custom has been recrafted to reflect the inspiration behind the project, featuring a white lambskin liner as well as a liner that relishes in an Easter-styled color palette. The shoe itself has been completely revamped from start to finish, with the only portions of the original base shoe being the outsole.
You can check out XYLAR studio’s Nike React Element 87 in the custom “Easter Corduroy” above, and if you’re interested in picking up a pair head over to the brand’s web site where they are currently retailing for $9,800 HKD (approx. $1,250 USD).
