Created for Nike-sponsored female Olympians, Nike and Liberty have linked up to produce two special-edition track spikes – each coming in Nike’s popular Volt and featuring the London’s textile company’s “Mirabelle” floral print.
Nike Sportswear and Liberty are extending their partnership, with a new collection of iconic heritage silhouettes and – for the first time – two styles of women’s high-performance track spikes. The combination represents the ultimate definition of sport performance meeting style.
The Nike Zoom Victory Elite is the first track spike to be given a distinctive Liberty identity and is exclusively available to buy in the landmark Liberty Store in London. Specifically designed for the 1500 metres, the Nike Zoom Victory Elite combines an ultra-responsive carbon plate with a dynamic Nike Flywire upper. The result is a groundbreaking shoe that maximizes athletes’ on-track potential.
The striking on-trend volt colour of the spike is offset by the delicate floral ‘Mirabelle’ Liberty print. The fabric was first introduced in the 1960s but its design application to Nike’s material is entirely unique to these limited edition spikes. The high tensile strength Nike Flywire cables provide support and stability for the foot within the shoe, while a lightweight foam midsole and innovative carbon fiber plate combine to offer superior fit, comfort and traction.
The second track spike to feature the ‘Mirabelle’ print is the Nike Zoom JA Fly, designed for sprinters, who require a secure but dynamic fit in an ultra-lightweight spike shoe. High-strength Flywire cables provide targeted support to help lock the foot in place, while the rigid plate with eight spike receptacles provides traction and power on the track.
The Nike Zoom JA Fly x Liberty has been created solely for the elite female track athletes that Nike sponsors and will not be available at retail. The Nike Zoom Victory Elite spike is on sale in-store at Liberty, Regent Street, London RRP £
