Nike’s ISPA label, established in 2018, shared their upcoming 2020 lineup yesterday, causing sneaker heads and designers alike to basically lose their sh*t.
I was lucky enough to get a glimpse at the Road Warrior during my trip to Nike campus earlier this year. ISPA Design Director Darryl Matthews was also casually wearing the Overreacts and the Flows while running between meetings, so I had a fairly good understanding of the reaction these silhouettes would create when they released.
Below you can see a break-down of each of the designs, which are scheduled to start releasing from July 9th onwards.
If you’re interested to learn more about the collection make sure to tune in this Monday for their ISPA Live Digital experience.
Featuring double-stacked Zoom Air cushioning units, a “tank track” like sole unit and a split toe, the Road Warrior is arguably the most aesthetically grabbing silhouette of the collection (which is saying a lot).
Available July 10
Featuring a React foam sole unit, knit upper and assymetric collar, the Overreact uses data taken from geometries of past React silhouettes (like the React Element 87). The sockliner and strobel were removed, enabling the wearer to sit directly above React foam.
Available July 9
Utilizing the Overeact’s DNA, the Overeact Sandal mixes visible and hidden layers across the upper to allow for breathabilty, and sits on the super comfy and volumous React midsole.
Available July 31
The Flow also features a React foam midsole, but executes it in a very different manner. The sleeker React sole interpretation couples with a breathable and cleverly structured upper, allowing your feet to be both comfortable and cool during the summer months.
Available August 13
Featuring a split toe, the Drifter combines a Japanese work boot style with a super lightweight casual sneaker. Sat atop a partially reground ZoomX foam the style also features a unique lacing system that allows the user to fasten the shoe at both the top and center of the throat.
Available September 1
