Paris Runway Baby: Nike React Element 87
Futuristic sophistication on your feet.
You can crucify me, but I looked at this sneaker release and went who the fuck designed this? Cause I need them on my feet. I'm still wearing Nike Free Runs Originals, seriously crucify me at this point, but seeing these on the Paris runways, I might transition!
Nike React Element 87. Launch Tomorrow in North America, and June 21 for the rest of the world.
It's not just the Colorway's that have me excited, it's the way they conceived the soles.
Here's the recipe by Chef Darryl Matthews:
1x Piece of Foam
Assorted Foot Pressure Maps
NOW GO HAM.
No Serious that's it. Matthews went back to the basics of making shoes and added a computational design element with the pressure maps then resized them perfectly for every shoe size... all for comfort. The Nike React Element 87 is similar to the Nike Epic React Silhouette...But here's the difference the React Element is just the wider Epic React.
Sneaker Giants are revisiting their older designs and adding a hint of technology design to them and coming out with these whack, futuristic- alien-vibe sophistication.
Nike themselves say: "It’s proof that the new requires mastery of the old, command of the cutting-edge and a healthy dose of old-fashioned ingenuity."
Nike is killing the releases, and their blasts from the past keep on coming. Check out the OG's Air Max 90
