We may still be waiting on the best possible pairs of Florida Gators Jordan Brand shoes to arrive, something that has been hotly anticipated since the program’s switch from Swoosh to Jumpman for its football and basketball teams.
But the Gators still have a Swoosh deal, and as part of that deal, we’re still getting Florida-themed releases in new collegiate collections — the latest one coming this Friday, with the React Element 55 kicks coming down the pike.
React shoes are supposed to be rather comfortable, even as Nikes go, so that might be part of why I feel like you’re sacrificing a bit of style — the asymmetric look of these is not for me — for performance and fit.
But especially if you already copped the more stylish Air Zoom Pegasus shoes that rolled out earlier this fall, you might have room on your shoe rack for some orange-and-blue everyday wear sneakers.
These React Element 55s retail for $140, and are available in men’s and youth styles and sizes.
