Editor’s Notes: Fresh off releasing what many are saying is Nike’s best silhouette of 2018 so far (a view we agree with), leaks have hit social media suggesting the Swoosh could drop two new colorways of its futuristic React Element 87 sneaker in early 2019.
The two colorways, as posted by notorious leaker @pinoe77, show the sneaker in lime green/yellow and baby blue/pink variations. Both look to feature the same translucent upper that has become something of a Nike staple, the Swoosh having previously used it on the OFF-WHITE x Nike Zoom Fly and other running sneakers.
Check out the sneakers below and leave your thoughts on the rumored 2019 releases in the comments.
Are these better than the OG colorways? Let us know in the comments below.
