Nike Unveils The SuperRep Footwear Collection

Nike unveils the SuperRep Footwear Collection.

First reported by One on One Testers, Nike has unveiled their SuperRep Footwear Collection.

Nike’s SuperRep family of footwear is built to serve the performance needs of class-based fitness athletes.

Each unique silhouette — including the debut shoe, the Nike Air Zoom SuperRep — responds to the specifications of a particular type of workout, be it a boot camp or spin class. The shoes are created with a commitment to extend the same level of expertise provided to professional athletes to all enthusiasts who work on a daily and weekly basis to better themselves.

“Fitness classes are booming around the world,” says Jamie Jeffries, VP/GM of Nike Training. “Working out is its own sport, and Nike’s SuperRep shoes are designed to deliver on the performance needs specific to these activities.”

The Nike Air Zoom SuperRep is an innovative shoe built specifically for the rigors of high-intensity classes.

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts alternate bouts of going all-out with periods of rest to recover. The movements are diverse — burpees, kettlebell swings, lunges, mountain climbers, push-ups, squats and many more — and are sequenced to get maximum impact from maximum effort.

The design of the Nike Air Zoom SuperRep takes into account hundreds of hours spent sweating it out, studying and observing fitness classes. In those classes, it became apparent that athletes were either wearing shoes that were cushioned or shoes that were supportive, but there wasn’t a shoe that provided both cushioning and support specific to fundamental HIIT movements.

Using Zoom Air in the forefoot not only creates a dynamic aesthetic, it also helps provide impact protection and a responsiveness that gives back rep after rep after rep.

This cushioning — a two-unit system under the forefoot — doesn’t act alone. A plate running from heel to forefoot helps roll the foot forward and into a ready position for the majority of upright HIIT movements. The upper is crafted to support lateral moves, such as skaters and side lunges. The “burpee break” provides stability in plank positions and allows the foot to bend naturally when driving into mountain climbers.

The Nike Air Zoom SuperRep also introduces an unmistakable signature mark — an exaggerated arc design near the ball of the foot — that carries into the SuperRep family’s other two initial styles, the Nike SuperRep Cycle and Nike SuperRep Go.

The Nike SuperRep Cycle features an outer plate compatible with SPD and Delta cleats, making it a perfect complement for any type of pedal-driving indoor cycling workouts. Lightweight, translucent mesh on the upper, a perforated sockliner and a vented plate allow air flow. Rubber studs and a textured toe plate provide traction white walking through the studio before and after class.
Built with a lightweight cushioning system, the Nike SuperRep Go is designed for self-guided training courses in a more contained space. The shoe can be worn in a living room or hotel for an NTC App session, for example, for bodyweight movements and mat sequences.

Together, the trio of shoes form a base for Nike SuperRep that will build throughout 2020 and beyond.

The Nike Air Zoom SuperRep launches December 17 for Nike Members in Europe and will be available January 2 on nike.com and at select retailers. The Nike SuperRep Go releases in April and the Nike SuperRep Cycle follows in summer.
