The Nike React Element 55, the React Element 87’s little brother, won’t be releasing until October.
WearTesters first reported on the React Element 55 in mid-August, and then, it was rumored to be arriving at retailers soon. Now, according to Champs Sports, the React Element 55 won’t release until October 23. Official pricing has yet to be announced.
The React Element 55 is nearly identical to the React Element 87, save for one key difference: the upper isn’t translucent. Instead, what appears to be an engineered mesh or knit is used to build out the upper. Comfort will still be a focus as the Element 55 rides atop the same React cushioning tooling as the Element 87.
It will take a bit longer for these less-hyped React Element 55 builds to hit retailers. While you wait, let us know what you think about either React Element shoe in the comments below.
