Model: React Element 87 “Hyper Fusion”/“Touch of Lime”
Key Features: A semi-translucent upper is complemented by pops of color throughout. Nike branding is present as a large Swoosh on the lateral and mini Swoosh on the toe. The midsole features Nike’s new React cushioning technology. A cork insole completes the look and provides a touch of elevated quality.
Release Date: January 29
Editor’s Notes: Nike is dropping two new pairs of its super-popular React Element 87 silhouette today. The highlight of the pack is the “Hyper Fusion” colorway, which boasts a black React midsole with volt, aurora green, and racer pink details on the upper, all of which stand in stark contrast to the muted tooling. The second colorway is called “Touch of Lime,” which, as the name suggests, features hits of lime on the upper.
The React Element 87 was chosen as our best sneaker of 2018 in the Highsnobiety Crowns end-of-year awards. The Swoosh has already released several variations of the sneaker, including the UNDERCOVER collab versions, but the “Hyper Fusion” colorway is probably one of the cleanest in-line designs thus far.
Look out for both colorways at Nike today, January 29 from 10 a.m. EST for $160.
