ISPA ROAD WARRIOR
The Road Warrior goal was to build a piece of footwear that can thrive in urban environments thus it scavenges innovation from many different places: basketball, training, running, outdoor apparel. Combination of all of these performance innovations produce harmony, providing comfort, protection, and durability. The Road Warrior silhouette pioneering design of the 2-hour marathon breaking Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next% and the energy return of the Nike Air Zoom BB NXT. 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 foot plates. As not to sacrifice stability, the Road Warrior re-imagines a traditional Japanese split-toe cage (commonly used in construction and road work boots) for a back-to-basics barefoot stance.
