Stay bright with the Nike ‘Flash’ Collection

If you’re anything like us, you prefer to head outdoors and pound the pavement rather than the treadmill when exercising. But when the weather is working against you, it’s a tough task to muster up the motivation. With this thought, Nike have sought to keep runners protected against the elements with its new ‘Flash’ pack.

The Nike "Flash" Pack

The Nike ‘Flash’ Pack

The Flash footwear collection consists of 6 different styles that feature water-resistant properties, vibrant reflectivity and breathable, lightweight warmth. The pack also includes apparel to match with each piece engineered to keep athletes dry and comfortable. It does this by moving sweat away from the skin while still being highly visible in low light minus the construction-worker feel.

The hero of the pack is the Allover Flash jacket, which features a glass-beaded exterior that produces 360 degrees of 400-candlepower reflectivity for enhanced visibility. The only down side is that it’s going to cost you $500 big boys, and you’ll have to be quick, because it comes in limited quantities that won’t be around for long.

The Nike ‘Flash’ Pack includes the men’s and women’s apparel

Get the Nike ‘Flash’ collection directly from Nike, or head to Wiggle to get protected.

Nike Air Pegasus 83/30

Nike Sportswear marks the 30th anniversary of the Air Pegasus with the ‘Pegasus 83/30’.

The original Air Pegasus is one of Nike’s oldest running shoes; made popular years ago with its subtle style and extreme comfort. The 30th anniversary edition marries the original runner look with modern materials and construction, and features a breathable ‘Hyperfuse’ mesh upper, leather heel, and updated sole.

There are several colourways set to hit stores soon with some early releases having already sold out! But if you’re quick, you can get your pre-order in now at Titolo.

Nike Air Huarache OG

Nike Air Huarache OG

After 22 years, the Nike Air Huarache is back! The iconic runner is set to return in two original colourways: white/sport turquoise/university gold, and white/game royal/dynamic pink; being released in very limited runs this Friday February 22.

It’s no surprise to see many of our favourite sneakers from the 80s and 90s remade and marketed as retro re-releases these days. The Nike Air Huarache however, is one style that hasn’t seen a comeback in its original colourway since its debut back in 91.

Brought to life by legendary designer and architect, Tinker Hatfield, the Huarache is inspired by Native American sandals. Its design centres on the interior bootie that’s made from neoprene and spandex to hug the foot similar to that of a sock. It provides superior comfort while being supported by thermoplastic heel counter and strap.

While we’re super pumped to see one of our favourite shoes return, we’re pretty unhappy that Nike has failed to keep the overall shape of the shoe on par with the original. Early pairs show an oversized and rounded toebox, and chunky finish to the shoe. Is this going to stop anyone from trying to get a pair? Probably not.

You’ll be able to find them at Size? and Solebox.

New Balance M574 ‘Backpack’ Collection

The M574 is arguably one of the most popular New Balance shoe models. It’s so loved in fact, it’s often the first model of choice when it comes to collaborations and special editions. Not to be disappointed this time around, we’ve been tempted with the ‘Backpack’ Collection. This collection features the M574 in five different colours — black, orange, green, red, and blue.

Featuring tan suede details, the upper of the M574 is constructed from ballistic nylon, this is similar to what you’ll find on your everyday carry backpack. Each shoe also comes with its own backpack in the same colourway and matching detailing.

Look for the New Balance M574 ‘Backpack’ Collection in retail stores this August.
