03 Oct Nike Presents Winter Running Gear
Winter months offer a thrilling – if not chilling – running adventure. While cold days, long nights and a host of unpredictable elements compete to keep runners indoors, we see them as part of the fun. To keep runners protected from the elements, Nike introduces new winter running gear featuring options for breathable and lightweight warmth, water-resistance and vibrant reflectivity.
Nike Flash Pack Footwear
Drawing insights from runners logging miles in the dark winter months, Nike designers created the Nike Flash Pack, a reflective and water repellant line of shoes to keep runners protected from the elements. The pack features six styles: Nike LunarGlide 5 Shield, Nike Air Pegasus 30 Shield, Nike Free 5.0 Shield, Nike Lunar Eclipse 3 Shield, Nike Zoom Structure Triax 17 Shield and Nike Zoom Vomero 8 Shield. Each shoe sports a unique reflective print that hides subtly during the day but comes alive under nighttime lights to help runners stay visible.
To keep shoes water resistant, designers incorporated a three-layer mesh that repels water while allowing breathability. A tightly woven mesh makes up the shoes’ tongues, which are finished with a durable water-repellant (DWR) breathable coating. A micro fleece collar and tongue lining complete the design for added warmth.
Three of the pack styles include:
- Nike LunarGlide 5 Shield: For the runner with mild to moderate over-pronation, the Nike LunarGlide 5 Shield provides exceptional cushioning and support through Lunarlon, Dynamic Support and Nike Flywire technologies.
- Nike Air Pegasus 30 Shield: Thirty years strong, the Pegasus has been a running standard known for comfort and neutral cushioning. The thirtieth edition features an evolved upper for improved fit and a Nike Zoom unit in the heel for low-profile, responsive cushioning.
- Nike Free 5.0 Shield: An 8-millimeter midsole offset places the Nike Free 5.0 in the middle of the Nike Free spectrum between a barefoot-like feel and a traditional athletic shoe. Nike Flywire technology delivers a dynamic, glove-like fit and the Nike Free articulated flex grooves offer barefoot-like flexibility.
