Short for “Improvise, Scavenge, Protect, Adapt,” the Nike ISPA line proffers technical-yet-practical footwear — a key piece of which is the Air Max 720 ISPA, a shoe that’s appeared in a new “Metallic Silver” colorway. With a bold, layered look that uses cut-out disks and rubber rivets, the Air Max 720 ISPA is a definite attention-grabber. It even caught the eye of one Kanye West, who was spotted trying a pair on in December 2019.
This “Metallic Silver” makeup uses silver tones geological and matte alike, with a bright silver appearing on the upper while a flatter shade covers the TPU midsole cage. Black trim, rubber rivets and overlays add contrast to the upper, which is also dotted with small swooshes and mesh-lined circular cut-outs somewhat reminiscent of Virgil Abloh‘s recent Off-White™ x Air Jordan 5.
Blaze orange is introduced to the mix on tongues and heels, but is made most recognizable by way of a three-prong riveted rubber piece that hangs off the shoe’s rear. Down below, a clear Air Max 720 cushioning unit and natural-colored outsole with a nubbed traction pattern finalize the stylings.
The Nike Air Max 720 ISPA “Metallic Silver” is priced at $210 USD, and is set to release at retailers like Overkill on March 13.
