In 2017 Nike debuted new React technology, another landmark in the brand’s innovative history. React is a foam cushioning platform utilized in both performance and lifestyle sneakers like the Nike Epic React running shoe and Nike React Element 87. Nike's special foam produces a lightweight and responsive feel that is also more durable than many other types of foam cushioning on the market. Nike React sneakers offer a bouncy, cloud-like feel that lasts throughout the life of the shoe. React foam was first used in the Nike Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit basketball shoe. Then in early 2018, runners got their first shot at the innovative cushioning platform with the release of the Epic React running shoe. In the summer of 2018, Nike React became one of the biggest stories in sneaker culture, when the Nike React Element 87 made its debut. Created as a lifestyle shoe, the React Element 87 featured a perfect blend of trend-setting style and amazing comfort. The futuristic design features translucent paneling across the upper. The React Element 87 quickly became one of the must-have sneakers of 2018. Then in the fall of 2018, the Undercover x Nike React Element 87 released in four unique colorways, further propelling the sneaker's status. But the Element 87 is only the beginning for Nike React foam. Featured in both high-performance shoes for basketball and running as lifestyle shoes, Nike has endless applications for the technology. Notable models currently in stock at Buy Wholesale include the Nike React Element 87, the women’s React Element 55, and the Off-White x Nike Hyperdunk 2017.
