The Nike React Element 87 "Thunder Blue" is another impeccable look for the popular silhouette. Quickly becoming one of the hottest sneakers of the year, this colorway helped the React Element 87 keep its momentum going strong. Released in October 2018, the Nike React Element 87 "Thunder Blue" has also picked up a “Knicks” nickname due to its similarity to the New York NBA team's blue and orange team colors. Those accent colors highlight the otherwise neutral upper with its transparent paneling. More orange is found on the outsole and the shoe features full-length React foam cushioning.
