The mishmash sneaker takes inspiration from basketball, sports training, running, outdoor apparel, and even traditional Japanese footwear as seen in the split-toe tabi design. So much of Nike’s proprietary technology has gone into this silhouette, from the double-stacked zoom pods at the mid, double-under footplates, curves from the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next%, energy return from the Air Zoom BB NXT, and a spring system from early Shox prototypes. The lightweight technical uppers are also fixed securely to the foot via a ratcheting binding system.
While there is no exact release date, the latest news does come with a surprising reveal: the price. This pair of ISPA will be priced at a considerably high price point at $500 USD.
