Nike x Undercover React Element 87 - Register Now on END. Launches

Nike and Jun Takahashi's label, Undercover join forces for a duo of aquatic-inspired colourways of the React Element 87 - available now on END. Launches

Unveiled at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year, Undercover's creative director, Jun Takahashi puts Nike's new foam React technology to work with his iterations of the React Element 87 silhouette.

Playing with deconstruction - a trend which has defined the sneaker game in the wake of Virgil's 'The Ten' collection - the sneakers combine elements of translucence and opaqueness for a graphic statement of athletic style.

Ditching the models stripped-back status, a tonal base of grey, putty, and off white dress the translucent TPE yarn base, while flashes of aquatic-inspired blues and greens add contrast in all the right places.

The sneaker comes complete with exterior heel taping, trail-style laces, and premium Undercover branding on the lateral side walls. Branding comes in the form of “UNDERCOVER Jun Takahashi” wording on each lateral side.

The next stage in the development of React, the drilled sole unit is finished with embedded rubber pods in contrasting colours.

The Nike x Undercover React Element 87 s are available for registration on END. Launches.
