After years of Yeezys and UltraBoosts, Nike has been grabbing the spotlight once again with a consistent lineup of striking new designs and collaborations with designers like Virgil Abloh. One of our favorite styles this season is definitely the React 87 Element, which has a translucent upper and Nike's new React foam cushioning technology. 

Nike's has debuted a number of innovations in its running line and their latest is a new version of the Pegasus. The Zoom Pegasus Turbo puts some of their  marathon-grade technology in a running shoe that's built for everyday use. The foam used is their lightest ever and features an aerodynamic shape like the Vaporfly Elite.

The original Alphabounce brought a more dynamic look to their running line and now the company has debuted a bold new look with the Alphabounce Instinct. The shoe was designed to be a versatile running shoe that works well with a variety of activities. 

Kanye West's former creative director stole the spotlight from the Yeezy lineup when the designer introduced his collaboration with Nike that deconstructed a number of their iconic silhouettes. One of the most popular styles from the first collection is back this summer with two new colorways with the Air Presto Off-White in White and Black.

Translucent uppers are definitely a signature theme of this summer's Nike designs and that element found its way in the Sportswear line's EXP-X14. The shoe brings a number of performance innovations to a more lifestyle-oriented design with features such as React foam technology.
