This React Element 55 is Inspired by the Tour de France’s Two Most Iconic Jerseys
Cycling clout 🚵🏼♀️
The biggest month on the calendar for cycling fans the world over is upon us, with 2019’s 106th Tour de France about kick off this July. Each year, the Summer month holds the 115-year-old race around the French countrysides and cities, and, from the fans to the peloton, is one of the most colorful events you’ll ever see. But for the riders, there’s really only chasing a few colors this July — special Tour jerseys that lay special claim to cycling clout.
This upcoming pair of the Nike React Element 55 takes the two most iconic jersey trophies of the event, the world-renowned Yellow Jersey for the tournament leader, and the Red Polka-Dotted Jersey for the King of the Mountains crown, and combines them into just one sneaker. Starting out with a white base, Tour Yellow is ushered in on the tongues and heel clips, while the Polka Dot Jersey is mimicked on the heel plugs and taping.. Bold black accents arrive in perfect balance, striking the liner, laces, lace underlays, Swooshes, heel pulls and the sole unit’s front plugs.
Take in an official look at these Tour de France-themed React Element 55s below, and you can expect a release to land at select Swoosh stockists and directly at Nike.com this June.
