Nike’s React Element 55 has been one of the most popular silhouettes this summer, landing in everything from bright green to pastel yellow. Our latest favorite, however, is this “Barely Grape” iteration that’s sure to be spotted on the most stylish people come fashion month.
The entire sneaker is covered in the pastel lilac hue, with the breathable upper also incorporating a subtle, chequered print inspired by retro football shirts. The lacing loops feature bursts of darker purple and reflective 3M silver for a slight contrast, and Nike React text branding is seen on the asymmetric tongue. A lavender Swoosh blends in on the lateral side while pops of bright green provide contrast on the heel tab and insole. Completing the look is the lightweight, textured midsole which is also lilac.
