Nike’s SuperRep Sneakers Are Built For High Intensity Gym Training

It’s no big secret that different workouts require different equipment — especially when it comes to footwear. However, the venue in which you exercise can also change your necessary gear, even if the activity itself doesn’t change. The mad scientists at Nike seemed to have figured it out, which is why they’ve released a trio of new sneakers made specifically for gym-based high-intensity training.

This new family of footwear — called SuperRep — was created using literal hundreds of hours of training and observation in fitness classes. Through this research, it was discovered that a shoe didn’t really exist that offered both cushioning and support — both necessary for HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) movements. So, using Zoom Air technology in the forefoot, a heel-to-forefoot plate, a split-sole design, and a lateral stability-enhancing upper, Nike built one — appropriately dubbed the Nike Air Zoom SuperRep. But took it a step further, too, and crafted two more shoes around this same ethos: the Nike SuperRep Cycle for bicycle-based workouts and the Nike SuperRep Go for home and travel workouts in smaller spaces. Pricing has yet to be unveiled, but these shoes are set for a worldwide release on January 2nd, 2020.
