Nike React Element 87 - One Of 2018s Most Popular New Nike Shoes
Posted on December 15 2018
2018 was a huge year in the shoe industry. In fact, for some reason, this year's shoe releases seemed to overshadow the last couple of years prior. That being said, it was also an interesting year for shoes with interesting releases such as the Balenciaga Triple S, the Adidas Ozweego, Gucci Flashtrek, and the Yeezy 700s.
But what do all of those shoes have in common? For starters, they are all from super-well-established luxury brands or are endorsed/owned by a celebrity. In fact, that might account for a majority of the reason why they have had such success. But among these luxury and celebrity brands, there is one other shoe that made its way to the spotlight in 2018 — the Nike React Element 87.
At Laced. we have a huge appreciation for shoes that can cut through the noise that would be the endorsement of their competitors by celebrities or the naturally popular nature of their brand — and to us, that is exactly what the Nike React Element 87 is. As a Los Angeles shoe store we enjoy being able to weigh in on new shoe releases and trending footwear, and today we are going to do just that. Continue reading to learn more about the Nike React Element 87, and what we think sets it apart from other brands, and even other Nikes.
It Is Different
Before we start to discuss how the Nike React Element 87 is different from other shoes, we want to make it painfully clear that when a shoe is different it is not a bad thing. When a shoe is different it stands out and makes a statement for whoever is wearing it. Now, when we say that the Nike React Element 87 is different from other shoes, we aren't saying that it sticks out like a sore thumb — we will leave that up to shoes like the Gucci Flashtrek that we, to this day, still have no idea why became so popular. Instead, we are saying that the Nike React Element 87 sticks out with its subtleties.
But it isn’t just other brands of shoes that the Nike React Element 87 stands out from. It is also other Nikes. If you hold the Nike React Element 87 up next to other Nike shoes, you will notice that it does not pay homage to any of the classic kicks that came before it. Past Nike designs like the Air Force 1 and the Air Max feature thick soles and bulky trim — but not the Nike React Element 87, instead featuring a minimalistic design embellished by a wide array of colors.
It Combines Many Different Nike Features
The Nike React Element 87 is named after the 87th element, francium, due to its explosive nature. If there is one thing that we can say about this shoe it is that its design is just as explosive as its name. Like most Nike shoes, the Nike React Element 87 comes in a wide variety of colorways, some more exclusive than others. But if there is one thing that all the colorways share it is the quality of their construction.
2018 was a breakout year for Nike, with the release of the React sole — a new shoe sole that utilizes cutouts in the sole that has been pressure-mapped to “trademark” the look. Additionally, the Nike React Element 87 mimics an almost unfinished look, making it appear to look like an OFF-WHITE collaboration.
