Nike iSPA “Mindbody” Is a Survivor of an Apocalypse
Destroyed, but not wasted.
[Update 5 Jan 2023] Nike’s iSPA division has been breaking new ground since its inception. In 2023, the mission continues with their first drop of the year. The “Mindbody” is scheduled for release on SNKRS on 1 February, along with an approximated price tag of US$190.
Throughout the years, Nike’s design team has constantly been creating new products with athletes in mind. But as the trend shows that the fashion industry is constantly evolving and demands have changed, Nike decided to take on a more abstract approach to footwear.
Developed through a set of design principles and philosophy, the sports label introduced the “iSPA” project which stands for “Improvise, Scavenge, Protect, and Adapt” back in 2018. Captivating many with its unique and unconventional designs, numerous models and iterations have seen releases and the latest to arrive is the Nike iSPA “Mindbody”.
Introduced as part of the AW22 collection, the Nike iSPA “Mindbody” is constructed with a flykint upper, interlaced with laces that resembles a wiring aesthetic. Chunky rubber outsoles equipped also adds a trendy look with an unevenly detailed platform. Going for the ‘destroyed’ look, the sneaker is finished in a colorway that resembles burnt traces while oxidation covers the outsoles.
While no release dates are confirmed yet, the Nike iSPA “Mindbody” is expected to drop in the month of December via Nike and selected retailers.
