Ever since Nike brought the ISPA line to life back in 2018, they’ve stuck firmly with the ideas of: Improvise. Scavenge. Protect. Adapt.
This has meant the experimentation of some of Nike’s most technological advances and taking them up a notch, all in the effort to solve those everyday problems within the environments we find ourselves.
For the ISPA 2020 collection, these ideas are brought to the forefront like never before.
First up, is the Nike ISPA OverReact Flyknit. This concept came to fruition with the idea of how to make shoes more comfortable. By using Nike’s React technology, the team at ISPA managed to take this foam and double its geometries, maximising the React’s soft cushioning, energy return and durability all in a single lightweight compound.
Taking the process of the Nike React Element 87, the ISPA OverReact utilised pressure and density maps with foot strike data to give the designers a more clear understanding of where the cushioning is most and least needed.
When it comes to the upper, ISPA have taken their life long motto of improvise, scavenge, protect and adapt and made use of what’s around them. Much like the Vapormax 2 ‘Random’, the OverReact has its colour ways decided by the yarns that are available at the time, adding to this unique yet purposeful appearance.
