Nike continues to apply amazing colour combinations to its beloved React Element 87 model, while giving the same treatment to its newer Element 55, this time for Women. There's the 'Moss' colourway of the Nike React Element 87, with a Wolf Grey or White/Desert Ore versions for women, all releasing this Thursday at Shelflife.
First, the Nike React Element 87 for Men. As par for the course, translucent uppers are back once again, poking through to any sock of choice in its light grey synthetics while leaving the eye to catch onto the various orange contrast stitching, which outline the various upper taping in an execution connecting to the branding and embroidery hits.
Oversized swooshes in a standout black find themselves emblazoned along the profile, leading into the many muted hues spread along the rear build. Molded heel support and back tabs match eyestays in a deep, saturated brown while olive dyes paint the entire heel and part of the tongue as fitting of the 'Moss' name.
For Women, the Nike React Element 55 is arriving in two new colourways. Coming in Wolf Grey/Multi or White/Desert Ore, the Element 55 borrows design lines from heritage Nike runners like the Internationalist, adds reflective graphics and then places it all on Nike React technology.
The Wolf Grey colourway sees unmistakably ’90s combination of forest green, royal blue, bright orange, and light pink that combine on the throat, midfoot Swoosh, and heel to provide a colourful contrast.
The White/Desert Ore colourway sees a more understated colour combination, with Ember Glow detailing highlighting the model.
