Kendrick Lamar x Nike React Element 55: First look and release date
We're betting this latest collaboration won't stay on shelves for long, so mark the release date on your calendar now.
Following the success of four previous collaborations on Nike's Cortez sneakers, Kendrick Lamar has once again teamed up with the Swoosh for a new sneaker design. This time, the duo is reimagining the React Element 55 silhouette and you're definitely going to want to add it to your sneaker rotation.
Release date: 5 November 2019 (US)
Where to buy: Nike online store
The latest style is rumoured to be dropping on 5 November in the US, meaning that we should see it here in Australia shortly after. You should be able to shop it first from the Nike online store, though we're also expecting the kicks to land at usual Nike stockists JD Sports and Platypus Shoes.
Arriving in a unique monochrome half-and-half design, the Reacts take on a grey marble print on the medial side and a white marble design on the lateral. A speckled grey outsole further contrasts the look, while grey laces over a white lace guard finish off the two-tone design.
Rumours of the collaboration began circulating after Lamar himself was seen sporting the kicks. Now that we've had a closer look, we'd wager that they'll be an instant sell out, so set yourself a reminder for 5 November if you want to get your hands on a pair.
In other Nike news, the brand has had a busy couple of months, releasing a huge range of sneakers to great success. The most recent is the highly-anticipated Nike Air Jordan 1 Shattered Backboard 3.0, which arrives as part of the new Fearless Ones collection.
