This is one of the most anticipated silhouettes to release this year so far. We first saw Nike React Element 87 debut during the Paris Fashion week earlier this year. The futuristic sneaker was designed by Nike Special Projects Team to achieve more comfortable cushioning system.
“At first, the whole process was one of those back-to-basics type of things,” says Footwear Design Lead for Nike Sportswear Innovation, Darryl Matthews. “But then we took what we’d learned and applied it through computational design scripts. That’s when things really started clicking.”
The design features a 100% TPE textile yarn semi-translucent upper and finished off with a full length React foam cushioning.
Nike React Element 87 will be available to cop on June 21st via SNKRS Asia, Latin America, Greater China, SNEAKERS in Europe and select Nike Sportswear stockists, while a North American release will follow on July 13 via SNKRS and select stockists.
