Nike Summer Collection

Nike’s summer running footwear collection was on display as were closeups of the Rio Olympic uniforms at the sportswear brand’s Unlimited Innovation event at 45 Grand in New York City this week. Nike showed off its unlimited colourway, the track and field spike collection and unveiled the U.S. podium uniforms.

Of particular note in the above photos is the signature Nike volt and pink colourways of many of the shoes, which comes in anticipation of the summer’s competitions.

“The company’s color design team first considered the flow of the body in motion,” reads the line’s description. “Imagining athletes’ travel then directed their minds to tropical rainforests and the fauna that thrives in the environment: birds, with their attention-grabbing, color-shifting feathers; beetles, with their futuristic shining shells.”

The brand continues to push the boundaries when it comes to traditional running shoes including expansion of its high-sock features on its running shoes. A version of the Nike Pegasus 33, known as the Nike Pegasus All Out, has the high-sock look, popularized by this winter’s release of the LunarEpic.

New colourways of the Nike LunarEpic Flyknit were on display as well as the newly launched LunarEpic Low Flyknit. The low-cut option is now available at select retailers and online following its June 30 launch.

Along with running shoes, Nike unveiled its 2016 track and field footwear collection, which includes updates on the Victory, Zoom Elite, and Superfly Flyknit, all of which are expected to be worn by Olympians this summer in Rio. Canada’s Aaron Brown will wear the Zoom Elite and Melissa Bishop will sport the Victory if they qualify at the July 7-10 Olympic trials in Edmonton.
