Nike’s ISPA division unveiled their lineup for the rest of the year earlier this month, showing off a handful of new footwear silhouettes in the process. Among them is the Drifter, a tabi shoe inspired by Japanese work boots, launching in September.

ISPA has some wild plans for 2020. Unveiled in a special preview from Nike earlier this month, the ISPA team unveiled a number of new footwear options coming to stores in the next few months, each with its own unique look and inspiration. Today, we’re taking a look at the Drifter, a tabi-toe’d mid-cut sneaker inspired by Japanese work boots and fused with Nike innovation. The Drifter features a bootie-like construction, seemingly made of ripstop nylon and some other materials mixed in, but we can’t be quite sure of it yet. Nylon straps  The Nike ISPA Drifter silhouette will make its debut in two color schemes later this year, the first covering the shoe in soft grey tones with volt green accents, while the second is a blacked-out look with hints of royal blue hidden throughout.


Nike ISPA’s Japanese-inspired Drifter silhouette will make its debut in the Fall of 2020, currently scheduled for release on September 1st. The work boot-like silhouette will be available from both Nike and select ISPA retail partners, likely with a price tag in the $250+ range, though this will not be unveiled until a later date.
