Short for Improvise, Scavenge, Protect, Adapt, ISPA recognizes that the demands placed on both gear and wearer by not only the urban environment but the often-hectic urban lifestyle, create a state of constant flux. As opposed to the problem solving of pure athletic performance, where the design is channeled towards a single minded goal, like achieving the fastest possible run time, ISPA anticipates these near-countless, unique problems that need to be solved over the length of an entire day.
The uninhibited experimentalism of ISPA incorporates cutting edge innovation as part of a larger whole, where established creations and even wildly reimagined archival elements are all tasked with the goal of maximum performance and utility, in human created environments. The latest ISPA collections introduce radical new silhouettes, which place a particular focus on React and Air Zoom cushioning and Dri-Fit fabric. Sophisticated, technical flexibility, for a life lived looking forward.
The Nike ISPA Overreact takes those characteristics to the extreme by doubling down on the geometries that maximize Nike React. As with the Nike React Element 87, pressure and density maps combined with foot strike data help make sense of where cushioning is most and least needed. With this information in mind, the Overreact is comprised of a series of interlocking internal geometries that gives it a unique comfort advantage. Further, both the sock-liner and strobel were removed, meaning each step is taken on unadulterated Nike React foam.
The shoe’s upper maximizes Nike’s Flyknit production by employing a mix of excess yarns, like in the Nike VaporMax 2 Random. The knit patterns themselves are also in a sense reused, following on past footwear programs, and the color combinations are dictated by the available yarns. The upper is finished by an easy-on, easy-off closure system.
