Following the hugely successful introduction of the Nike Element 87 we were pleased to uncover our world exclusive React Element 55 collaboration in 2018.
Advanced in its construction, the React Element 55 features responsive REACT foam cushioning and an inside-out “deconstructed” aesthetic. The inspiration for the style came from drilling holes in the foam sole unit, in the aim of attaining more significant levels of comfort while standing, walking, shifting and sprinting. These trials allowed designers to determine which hole depth and densities accomplished their comfort goals.
Our size? Exclusive colour-up draws outdoor inspiration from the original ‘Escape Pack’ first launched in 1988, pulling colour influences from the pack’s Windrunner, Lahar and Air Force III.
Arriving with a technical aesthetic in mind, the pair boasted a durable nylon ripstop upper in a black and white grid design, with brown synthetic leather and suede to the eyestay and heel.
Red accents popped up on the spiral Swooshes and React tongue branding, along with reflective 3M taping along the seams for a finishing touch.
