Nike React Element 87
Nike continue to keep us all hyped with the latest new sneaker release, React Element 87. Taking everyday athletes data the geometric design was born and it certainly does not disappoint. Originally, the design behind the shoe started with pressure-map-testing individuals that are on their feet for long periods of the day. They did this so the designers could really see where people are putting the most pressure on their feet, where individuals felt the most tired and finally so they could implement designs to improve their experiences. The designers then used the pressure points to help design a sneaker that combined comfort, technology and style to relieve these points. After the pressure points were highlighted holes were drilled by the creators and then complemented with Nike React foam for comfort. This is where the iconic look and design was born.
The technology behind the design is partnered with a futuristic design, unique textures, materials and earthy tone colourways to give you the Element 87 a stand out design. Nike also adds a surprise cork insole to contrast with the materials of the outer shoe. The materials of the shoe is said to be inspired from the original 1983 Nike Internationalist and the translucent textile of last years Zoom Fly SP upper. All of these inspirations are then combined with suede accents and rubber outsole pods to give us the highly anticipated React Element 87.
