Today's environment has complex problems that need sophisticated solutions. The Nike ISPA Zoom Road Warrior scavenges parts from your favorite footwear designs for a collective mix of materials in shoe form. It features a supportive, split-toe upper with 4 Zoom Air bags for cushioning. Split-toe socks are included.
The Nike Design Exploration (NDE) team creates alternate versions of the iconic by finding solutions to daily challenges. Their work on the ISPA (Improvise. Scavenge. Protect. Adapt) collection is in response to the world’s constant state of evolution. Each piece features radical details to help overcome obstacles in your environment.
The shoe uses technology found in Basketball and Running prototypes. It has 2 Zoom Air units in the forefoot and 2 double-stacked Zoom Air units at the midfoot. Each combine for underfoot comfort and a responsive feel as you move.
Taking a cue from the iconic Nike Shox, an open, floating heel lets you see the inner workings of the shoe. It helps give you a soft feel and impact absorption with every step.
A split-toe upper takes inspiration from Nike Training prototypes. It helps keep your foot contained without sacrificing motion and agility. Split-toe socks are included.
A patched-together knit upper with rubber overlays helps support your foot. Adjustable buckles keep you secure.
Improvise. Scavenge. Adapt. Protect. This is the philosophy at the forefront of Nike’s revolutionary ISPA initiative. Specifically crafted to overcome the most challenging obstacles in the urban environment—from weather to tough terrain—ISPA is on a mission to engineer sophisticated solutions to your everyday problems.
