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!
In the hellish queue on the way home from the Olympic semi finals of the football at Wembley Stadium last week, I spotted a fellow spectator’s trainers that caught my eye instantly.. Here they are!
Nike WMNS TR Fit 2 Print
Volt/White-Cool Grey-Wolf Grey
Blue Glow/White-Shaded Blue-Night Blue
The first pair (the ones the lady was wearing) are my favourite from this pack and I can see the camo-esque pair being a crowd-pleaser as well. There’s something about a sneaker with a no sew upper and its seamless build that makes the shoe appealing to me, probably because it just looks so sleek.
I know that this silhouette is one that most would prefer to see worn with gym clothes and not a girly dress or jeans but I feel that it’s the all over print that changes my perception of the shoe. As well as looking good, the shoes as always have technology behind them, with a barefoot-like feel due to its lightness and sole and the support from the build.
JD Sports are back with another exclusive Nike release.. this time, paying homage to my home city, the place I love more than (most) other cities in the world… LONDON (for the Olympics)!
Nike Air Max 90 ‘London’
With a similar upper to the well loved ‘Infrared’ Air Max 90, only with a slightly deeper red, this release running from a UK6 up (which sucks for the smaller footed sneaker fiend like me) is made into something ridiculously special by the see through sole.. This isn’t just any see through sole, underneath it, is a map of the London underground. I’m literally drooling over this release and sitting here feeling seriously gutted I won’t be able to pick up a pair.
