There\u2019s been a lot of hype about the Nike React Element 87, and from all indications, it\u2019s warranted. Word was that the shoe was going to be unveiled as part of a partnership with Jun Takahashi\u2019s UNDERCOVER imprint, but, like most things in life, change is inevitable. Instead, Element 87 will be a non-collaborative release.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Element 87 shoes have a semi translucent upper\u2014not the first time we\u2019ve seen this approach. Check out the Nike Zoom Fly. The translucence is accomplished through the Nike-developed TPE yarn. What\u2019s different with the Element 87 is the lower Swoosh logo that seems to be sinking into the midsole. The heel has exterior taping while the trail-style lacing is made of leather and suede that has reflective accents. Rather than the traditional tongue, the Element 87 tongue is more angled. The sole is made from Nike\u2019s React foam, which means that it will be ultra soft and comfortable. The sole is embedded in a rubber outsole for increased wear and traction. Looks-wise, the Element 87 is set to release in \u201cSail Light Bone\u201d and Anthracite Black.\u201d\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
