The Nike React Element 55 in history

The elements are basically at the heart of the design philosophy behind the Nike React Element 55. It was dropped in late 2018 as a fitting follow-up to the bestselling and hyped Nike React Element 87, which was touted as a Sneaker of the Year contender.

The React Element 55 was named after a highly reactive element, called Cesium. This radioactive element inspired the designers to blend heritage designs with futuristic aesthetics to come up with yet another Nike hit.

Since its release, the shoe in question was seen worn by Hollywood icons. These celebs include Justin Bieber and Nike endorser Kendrick Lamar.
