Nike React Element 87 ‘Desert Sand’ | Detailed Look and Review

React was originally engineered for…lifestyle? At least, that’s what the React Element 87 tells me.


Nike’s React cushioning system was unveiled and presented to the public as the next best foam cushion in performance. Now, the Swoosh says the foam was originally intended for lifestyle.

While the performance implementation has so far been lackluster, excluding the performance runners which are awesome, the lifestyle version of React is something that truly competes with adidas’ Boost.

There has been a lot of hype surrounding the Nike React Element 87 and we’ve got an actual review with details about the shoe, its build, and its original purpose for those that have been curious. Sizing information is also detailed in the event you’re looking for a pair or planning to purchas the latest colorways releasing August 14 for $160.

Let us know what you think about the Nike React Element 87. Would you grab a pair for yourself given the opportunity?
