REMEMBER those semi-transparent Nike shoes? Those things you wear to flex your sock game? Well, Nike just released two new colorways for that model, the Nike React Element 87 on Saturday.

When it was first released in 2018, these kicks essentially pushed the limits of what was possible in today’s sneaker culture, and in the process became arguably the most popular and buzzworthy silhouette of the past year.

It’s rolling right through 2019 with several new colorways, and the latest two to appear are the bold and brave new “Red Orbit” and “Orange Peel”. It’s obvious that these new schemes have shied away from the earth-toned accents of other recent colorways.
