Nike ISPA hasn’t garnered the mainstream attention of other swoosh-focused imprints, but it’s been consistently praised by bold fashion enthusiasts, innovation junkies and plain-old “different” consumers. Last year, none other than Kanye West expressed how inspired he was by the Nike ISPA Road Warrior. Most recently, the sub-label’s Flow 2020 SE will fight for a spot on ‘ye and others’ mood boards.
At a quick glance, the newly-surfaced model doesn’t appear too far-off from its muse, but closer inspection reveals a number of overhauled details. Synthetic and mesh construction on the original ISPA Flow is replaced with a thicker fabric build that doesn’t sacrifice breathability, flexibility and comfortability. As the imprint’s “Improvise, Scavenge, Protect, and Adapt” ethos warrants, the updated silhouette features a handful of function-oriented components at the profiles and heel, as well as a reworked speed-lacing system. The Nike Air Presto Mid Utility-reminiscent height also suggests the latest Nike ISPA proposition has been designed specifically for the year’s colder months, despite sole units forgoing any change in material or tread pattern. Lastly, a grey and beige color combination takes over much of the upper, allowing for the bold design to shine.
Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and anticipate a Nike SNKRS launch before winter gets going.
