ISPA 2020 x Waffle Moon 1972
Nike ISPA is one of the most radical, cutting-edge division pairs we've seen for a while. Rethinking sneakers and sportswear while improving athlete’s interaction with the built environment, ISPA is a philosophy, a set of design principles that through observation and experimental expression aim to solve problems.
Deriving from the words improvise, scavenge, protect, and adapt, the experimental division has unveiled ISPA 2020 collection. And the part of creating a concept on this new launch was amazingly done by p n d design, which was inspired by the Nike ISPA 2020 x 1972 Waffle Moon Shoe, with suede and leather details.
The Moon Shoe had only 12 pairs made for the 1972 US Olympic Trials by Nike co-founder and Oregon University track coach Bill Bowerman, and this is an important piece of Nike's history.
It's the past being linked to the future, pushing the boundaries of running and the technology of the Nike ISPA Road Warrior.
In Nike’s words: “The open floating heel borrows from early Nike Shox prototypes, but shifts from the boing boing effect of the pillars to incorporate double stack zoom pods and double-under footplates. In those elements, the shoe references the pioneering design of the two-hour-marathon-breaking Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next% and the energy return of the Nike Air Zoom BB NXT.”
