Falling under the company’s SuperRep training line, the new sneaker is designed to address the lateral and out-of-seat movements riders experience during a session. A special support arc has been built into the shoe’s medial side, offering greater security of your feet during various combinations such including “Figure 8s.” Using a lightweight translucid mesh construction for its upper, as well as a perforated sockliner and air vents at the bottom of the plate, Nike has managed to keep the sneaker both incredibly light and breathable. A simplified closure system allows for easier accessibility, while rubber studs on the outsole and textured toe plates provide much needed traction as you walk to and from your bike.
Available in black and white for both genders or neon orange and pink exclusively for women, the Nike SuperRep Cycle will debut in Europe May 1, followed by a members’ release in North America on May 26. A general, global release will then come on June 1.
Elsewhere in sneakers, Saucony has dropped two summer-ready colorways for its Grid Azura 2000.
