Obscure Nike Week Day 7: Air Worp Speed. The Worp Speed is so obscure, I didn’t even know what this was until I happened upon it on eBay in random searches and bought it for $40 shipped! Released back in 1995, the Worp Speed is a Cross Trainer. That’s all I can say about this with certainty, as this shoe is definitely a strange one (but I LOVE IT!). It comes in the AIMAX box similar to what the Air Max 95 came in, but I’m not sure if it’s Max Air or not as there’s no visible sign of it.
So many little design details fascinate me including the Swoosh that’s cut in half by the back tab, the AIR stitched onto the side of what appears to be a carbon fiber TPU print, and a midfoot strap that goes under the shoe and is only held in place by the laces. The design lines are all over the place, as the upper and midsole seem to go in different directions. But you know what? I love this shoe. It’s so crazy and strange that it’s awesome.
That wraps up Obscure Nike Week, hope everyone enjoyed! #niketraining #worpspeed #engage
