If you’re looking for footwear models that straddle the line between sporty and fashionably unconventional, then Nike‘s ISPA family can be your go-to place to look. One of its members — the Nike ISPA Drifter — has been looking to gain some steam as of late as it was recently dropped in a hand-dyed “Indigo” colorway, and now it’s expanding its catalog even further with a new “NTRL” makeup.

This newest iteration to surface is built with an artisanal approach and is engineered with Earth-friendly materials, as this speaks to its moniker that is likely shorthand for “natural.” Most of the upper constructions are created with a beige hemp material that bears a tile-esque pattern, while suede overlays slightly contrast with a lighter gray hue. Darker beige notes are sprinkled to the laces and the ISPA ribbons that affix to the mid-foot, the former of which are decorated with black polka dot patterns. Additionally, the Nike ZoomX midsoles, heel clips and cork outsoles of these Tabi-influenced kicks are all crafted with recycled scraps.

Parties who fancy these sustainable sneakers can find Nike France dropping them on September 15 for €200 (approx. $236 USD).
