I was lucky enough to be invited down to the Nike Hospitality Suite during the Olympics to see all the Olympic kits and sneakers and to experience something special.
I was able to see all the Nike athlete kits up close and also those luminous spikes that we saw flash past us as the next Nike athlete won gold!
As well as trying out the new Nike Lunar+ Sportpack and seeing how the sensors work, I got to see Perri Shakes-Drayton’s incredible Liberty x Nike Zoom Victory Elite Spikes. This is the first time, in a Nike x Liberty colab, that Liberty have used their print on another brand’s material. These are so worth it! When I used to train, there was always competition of who could have the coolest/brightest spikes and Nike was the brand that we all used to run in. Mine were amazing, black and red and super light, but this was nearly 10 years ago and technology has changed so much since then.
I’m genuinely in love with those spikes, the luminous body with the Mirabelle heritage floral print and the gold spikes on the bottom.. any female athlete’s dream!
Thanks to the guys and Nike for inviting me down and a HUGE thanks for my Fuelband Ice, which is definitely an incredible motivation for me to keep fit.. I love seeing GOAL in flashing lights!
