Nike SpeedRep: An indoor trainer through and through

This offering from the Swoosh brand is designed to help you perform during high-intensity workouts. It offers the essentials for an efficient and comfortable experience no matter how many reps you want to hit.

It borrows tried-and-tested features from other Nike training shoes, such as a supportive midfoot arch to keep the foot stable during side-to-side movements.

Who is it for? The Nike SpeedRep is recommended to fitness enthusiasts who are after the following elements:

  • Affordably priced trainers
  • All-day comfort provided by plush insoles and foam cushioning
  • Breathable and lightweight, thanks to its mesh upper
  • Flexible with excellent traction brought by forefoot grooves and full-length rubber tread
  • Stability and support offered by built-in medial supports in the heel and forefoot areas

Nike SpeedRep vs. Nike Air Zoom SuperRep

Both these shoes are a part of Nike's new and modern set of training footwear. As an overview, the Air Zoom SuperRep is a much more advanced trainer than the SpeedRep. Why? Because the former has more technologies.

Here is what makes the SuperRep a head taller:

  • more secure bootie design
  • Air Zoom cushioning offers superior comfort
  • the deeper groove makes it more flexible
  • more stability thanks to the higher Containment shield
