Model: React Element 55
Key Features: The latest iteration of the React Element 55 sees the silhouette rendered in light gray, black, and cream hues. Like its progenitor, the React Element 87, the midsole features Nike’s React foam technology, while the now-synthetic upper features a trail-running lace system.
Release Date: Early 2019
Buy: Nike and select retailers
Editor’s Notes: Following the initial release of the React Element 55 in four colorways back in September, Nike will release a new creamy colorway early next year. The silhouette itself looks remarkably similar to the 87, however the 55 features more traditional materials for the upper, rather than the translucent material used on the earlier kick.
Not only is the new colorway aesthetically pleasing, at $130 it’s also a more fiscally conservative alternative to the $160 React Element 87.
