The Nike React Element 87 is arguably one of the best new silhouettes that Nike has launched over the past few years. Initially seen at Jun Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER runway show, it sent a serious buzz through the sneaker scene when they were first spotted.
Using a semi-translucent upper thats seen on the Zoom Fly, this sneaker focuses on all of the small nuances that set it apart from the rest. It uses a low-slung Swoosh on the side panel, a trail style lacing system and exterior taping used throughout.
Couple this with hits of suede and leather, along with a 3M heel tab and you have a high heat silhouette on your hands.
