Corresponding with the brand’s Holiday 2012 Shield Collection of footwear, Nike has unveiled its Holiday 2012 running apparel designs – each offering water repellant, reflective and insulating technologies.
In the dark the city comes alive, creating a visual treat for the early morning or nighttime runner. Lights sparkle, traffic thins and there’s an air of quiet that beckons the runner to reflect, re-energize and fly through the dark.
When it’s dark, cold or wet, runners have a choice: put away their shoes and wait for sunnier skies — or seize the night for a thrilling and reinvigorating run.
Witness a nighttime runner’s journey through imagery. As she runs through the city streets, reflective elements help keep her visible on the road. The Nike Running Holiday 2012 Apparel Collection features element-defying pieces such as the ultra-reflective Nike Flash Vest, the water repellant Nike Element Shield Max Jacket, and the warm and soft Nike Wool Hoody. The apparel is focused on keeping the runner visible in the dark, and protected from cold and wet weather.
