Nike releases new lightweight, breathable collection

Have you seen Nike’s new Breathe Collection running shoes? If you’re like me, and you’re training a fair amount, you’ll know that having light trainers is always a must. We sweat a lot more now because of the hot temperatures that we have come to enjoy in this part of the world. So it’s also become important to have a shoe that is breathable too. So the new Breathe Collection from Nikie might just be the perfect fit (and possible Xmas gift) for you and yours this summer.

Inspired by the humid and hot temperatures in Brazil, the Nike team put their thinking caps on. They combined the Nike Air Max and Nike Roshe Run sneakers to create the new Nike Air Max Lunar 1, Nike Air Max 1 and the Nike Roshe Run ranges. These new shoes are light and breathable and come in a whole range of different colours for the guys and girls. They go on sale on the 20th of this month, so four days to go folks. Has anyone had the chance to try these yet? If so, let me know what you think. Here’s more info on the three types available in this range:

Nike Air Max Lunar1

Nike Air Max Lunar1 is the definitive union of lightweight cushioning and flexibility. This season, the beveled ribs of Lunarlon foam are highlighted by a colored window that complements the mesh upper.

Nike Air Max 1

Stripped of its traditional leather, suede and synthetic overlays, the Nike Air Max 1 Breathe sheds weight and improves breathability. A dynamic fit tongue ensures the foot stays secure and moves with the body, while an updated Phylon tooling makes the sole ultra-light and super comfortable.

Bold piping offsets the gray mesh to give this season’s Air Max Breathe an updated look.

Nike Roshe Run

The definition of cool style, bright colors dominate this season’s Nike Roshe Run. The men’s colorways boast vividly hued outsoles, bringing a strong contrast to the neutral uppers. The women’s looks take the opposite approach, with white outsoles supporting vibrant uppers and accented with a white Swoosh logo.

At this stage, I’m looking for a shoe that is light, breathable but also caters to my excessive pronating. If the experts out there have suggestions or recommendations, get in touch.
