Nike React Element 87 Release 2018
Selten waren sich Sneakerheads weltweit so einig bei einer neuen Silhouette, wie beim Nike React Element 87. Um den Hype weiter zu befeuern, hat die Brand mit dem Swoosh nun die Entstehungsgeschichte des Modells veröffentlicht.
„Many classic Nike shoes were born from a simple desire: to make running and walking more comfortable. The Nike React Element 87 is one such shoe that also owes its geometric design to data drawn from everyday athletes. Work on the shoe began by pressure map testing individuals who walk heavily throughout the day. These maps show the points where feet experience the most fatigue from commuting, running errands, and otherwise. Designers then drilled holes into these spots on running shoe soles and repeated the process with Nike React foam for added comfort.“
„When it came to the shoe’s shape and materials, Matthews found inspiration in the original 1983 Nike Internationalist (the tongue, toe, and heel clip) and the translucent textile and asymmetrical tongue of last year’s Zoom Fly SP upper. Combined with suede accents, the Nike React logo, and rubber outsole pods, the shoe represents a powerful, performance-focused intersection of old and new.“
