Following its release late last week, UNDERCOVER’s Nike React Element 87 collaboration has made its way on to people’s feet and, in turn, their Instagram feeds.

The collaborative project was first teased at UNDERCOVER’s Paris Fashion Week FW18 show back in early March. In May, the first leaked images of the sneakers made their way online and instantly became a hit thanks to the sneakers’ eye-catching colorways and the previously unseen silhouette.

The four colorways that were finally released ended up looking very different to the initially unveiled colorways. To find out more about how the colorways changed before release, head to our detailed comparison piece here.

Nevertheless, the UNDERCOVER x Nike React Element 87 remained popular among sneakerheads and was a must-cop release. Due to the wild colorways, some sneakerheads were presented with a styling problem. This is why we’ve rounded up some of the best styling inspiration from Instagram, to help you get a look at how best to rock your new pair of UNDERCOVER x Nike React Element 87.
