Since its inception, Nike has been known for its eagerness to push boundaries. From the very first Air units fitted into the soles of shoes, to the unforgettable Nike Mag concept and some of the world’s first-ever self-lacing technology. One of the company’s more recent windows to the future of sportswear comes in the form of the ISPA line. Standing for improvise, scavenge, protect, adapt, the range of ISPA-branded footwear is an amalgamation of athlete data, digital design, and unbounded creativity.
Because ISPA stands for a set of values rather than design features, the ISPA range is extremely varied. Connected by groundbreaking engineering and the goal of tackling the everyday challenges of the urban environment, Nike’s ISPA arm is arguably one of the most exciting brand developments in recent years.
