Where To Buy The Nike React Element 87 “Light Orewood”
Our 2018 Sneaker of the Year carries on.
Our top-ranked sneaker of the year was met with some criticism. But, that’s what you expect with such a subjective list. Regardless of where you ranked Nike’s React Element 87 in this year’s top sneakers, one things for sure: It’s laid the groundwork for Nike’s future tech, the React cushioning system.
And while that tech has transferred across to a few silhouettes, the original remains the most sought after, with every single release of the 87 selling out in seconds. Nike are looking to continue riding the wave of success in 2019 with a handful of new colorways already scheduled for 2019.
The first pair to drop sounds awful on paper; Light Orewood Brown/Volt Glow-Cool Grey-Laser Orange: — but in reality, it’s anything but. The earthy undertones work strangely well with the pops of neon orange and green, in an ACG-styled make-up. The “Light Orewood” Nike React Element 87 is already drawing hypebeasts attention, so this is one release you’ll want to plan ahead for.
Take a peep at the official images below, along with a list of retailers who will be stocking the drop. We’ll be sure to keep the list updated as more retailers come to light!
Good luck for the drop on Friday, January 17h!
