Nike’s React Element 55 is an ultra-popular lifestyle silhouette that’s available in a veritable plethora of makeups, and now it’s appeared in a fresh style that looks back to a shoe that kicked off the React Element craze: the black/white React Element 87. As the black/white 87 was one of the first two React Element silhouettes to release, it’s an important touchpoint in the short-yet-storied lineage of the line. Here, it’s nodded to with a semi-translucent black upper that’s accented with stark black detailing and a bold white Swoosh on the lateral side that dips down into the midsole. The lower half then offers a signature cored-out white React foam midsole equipped with black plugs. A clever interpolation of shape and style, these fresh-yet-familiar Nike shoes are available now at select overseas stockists, so you can expect a stateside Nike.com and Foot Locker release in the coming weeks for $130 USD.
