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.
The first colorway, the “Red Orbit,” opts to present a mixture of bold red, regal purple, smooth grey, and cool navy blue stylings, all placed on top of its signature smoky translucent TPE upper.
On the other hand, the ”Orange Peel,” sports a rather autumn-y theme with its mix of orange, yellow, brown and green, while still being vibrant enough for the summer months.
This compelling model of these kicks offers the wearer interesting options: 1) they can add further to the bright embellishments by wearing a colorful pair of socks, or 2) they can opt to keep it slightly minimal with a simple sock selection.
The newest Nike React Element 87s “Red Orbit” and “Orange Peel” are available in all Nike stores today!
