Designed for indoor use, Nike’s SuperRep shoes are designed for stability and breathability either on or off a bicycle.
If you liked pro cycling back in the ’90s and early 2000s, you will remember that Nike was very popular with their shoes being used by a certain American. Nike departed cycling about 2008 but cyclists like of Mark Cavendish, Adam Blythe and Dani Rowe still wear them.
The designs are not publicly on sale and seem to be re-logo shoes from an Italian maker. The new shoes seem to be a first step back into cycling for the Nike.
The SuperRep spin shoes are designed for spin bike riders. They can be used with either two or three-bolt cleats and feature a translucid mesh on the upper, with a perforated sock liner and vents through the bottom of the plate to allow better airflow around the toes.
They have used a split sole design, that look like their football boots. We are not sure what material has been used for the two sole pieces, but appears to be a stiffened nylon rather than the carbon sole we would normally see on a road cycling shoe.
The sole is finished with low profile rubber studs and a textured pattern to provide traction whilst walking to and from the bike.
