Nike ISPA| For the Extremes of Everyday

Nike ISPA Drifter Gator Laces Nike News

Nike ISPA has really caught on in 2020 and the company aims to rejuvenate the entire lineup with brand new silhouettes. One of the latest was the Nike ISPA Drifter that did fairly well, selling out quickly after launch.

ISPA stands for Improvise, Scavenge, Protect, and Adapt. As Nike puts it, the line-up is made for the everyday extremes of life. Not for any particular sport but sneaker/sports-wear that’s versatile.

These kicks are designed for the “City Dwellers” but can adapt to any terrain that comes your way. From cycling, running, and hiking to walking, these sneakers are designed to do them all.

The latest addition is the Drifter Gator silhouette that’s sure to turn some heads with its unique new features. To estimate its resale value, let’s head on over to StockX.

Nike ISPA Drifter Split Spruce

Retail Price: $200

Peak Resell: $320

Release Date: 09/01/2020


The Nike ISPA Drifter Split Spruce features a Japanese styled, design wrapped in a white upper. Exaggerated straps with “ISPA” branding are also used while ‘Swoosh’ branding can be seen on the rugged toe region.

A sail mid-sole with exposed black foaming and a rugged black out-sole completes the design.

On StockX, the average selling price is $230 which is an average gross profit of $30. I believe the Nike ISPA Drifter Gator will have similar resale value.

Retail Price: $220

Estimated Resell: $260

Release Date: October/08/2020

Colorway: Summit White & Coastal Blue

The drifter gator lineup shares much of the design elements of the ‘Split’ sneakers, with the addition of a new interesting feature.

The drifter gator includes a “Parachute” that opens up to protect you from the elements. They’re designed to protect from the winter cold, rain, and mud.

The parachute is stored at the rear of the sneaker that is secure with a water proof zipper. Webbing is included along the lace unit while the Nike “Swoosh” is featured on the toe boxes.

Finally, a sail mid-sole with VaporMax cushioning finishes off the design.

Resale Value

Since the first Drifter sneakers did well, I believe these will sell out fast as well.

Using my estimated resell value, I believe gross profits will be around $40 a pair. If you can manage to sell on eBay which offers service fee waivers, you can expect profits even higher.

You can buy the Nike ISPA Drifter Gator at select retailers and Nike at 10 Am EDT on October the 8th for $220.
