The React Element 87 made waves last year with its unique design and React cushioning. Those who cannot afford the Element 87 had the Element 55, which has the same goodness of the Element 87 sans the translucent upper. For this upcoming colorway, Nike is giving the affordable Element 55 a dash of Element 87 vibes with a new upper.

This updated black/white colorway has a patterned translucent upper that is reminiscent of the React Element 87. Unlike its more expensive sibling, this React Element 55 sports nubuck trimmings on the eyestay, tongue, and heel, along with a conventional insole.

The best part? This has the React Element 87’s translucent upper while keeping the React Element 55’s price. Should this pair be made available locally?
