Stockholm X Nike: LunarGlide+ 5 & Free Bionic

17 June 2013, 14.08 | Posted in Sneakers, Technology | 7 comments »

NikeFreeBionicAutumn2013 (1)

HighSnobette was recently invited to the gorgeous city of Stockholm, to preview and trial the new Nike Womens autumn running and training line. All last week I (being HS’s rep in London, Amina Kahn) covered the event on Twitter and Instagram, including the launch presentations of the LunarGlide+ 5 along with the Nike Free Bionic Training shoe (above), which helped us survive the Nike Training Club bootcamp.

Without going into technical details (and there are many), I very much LOVED the LunarGlide+ 5 to the point where I must say it is the best running shoe I’ve ever put my feet in. The shoes are so light you forget you have anything on your feet apart from clouds. Our verdict? Expect to see this shoe everywhere from the gym to the streets to the office. The style is sleek, lightweight and versatile.

Up next the Free Bionic training shoe, which wore through a 45 minute intense workout (okay the view from the pier surrounded by Swedish hills and greenery helped with the pain) which pushed us to our limit. The Free Bionic is for the hardcore workout so some it’s built to be light but also provide grip and support. The design is beautiful, too, and the instant positive reaction to it on Instagram speaks to its good looks. A quick note on the Nike Dri-Fit apparel, including the new “Warp” knits, why wear anything else?

See more coverage including pics of the LunarGlide+ 5 on the next page.

Note: All product will be available on Nike.com, launch dates and colorways vary by region.

HD8A4152 540x359 A.P.C. x Nike Spring 2013 Collection

Check out the full line-up of sneakers from the latest collaboration between French brand A.P.C. and Nike.

The collection for Spring 2013 includes the Dunk High and the Air Maxim 1. The Nike Dunk High comes in black and wheat suede colorways with gum outer soles. The Nike Air Maxim 1 comes in black and white colorways and also gum outer soles. The Air Maxim 1 comes in two different versions for men and YES for women. While the men’s version, as shown here above, features a black mid-sole on the black colorway, the women’s version also features a white mid-sole on the black colorway, just like on the white colorway. Sounds complicated, but once you have seen it, you will know what we mean.

Look out for the official release of the A.P.C. x Nike Spring 2013 Sneaker Collection at A.P.C. stores in the coming days.

Nike Free Experience Barcelona – Recap

Nike Free Run experience cover Nike Free Experience Barcelona   Recap
Last week Highsnobette, along with 20 other journalists and bloggers from around the world, joined Nike for a 36-hour trip to test and experience the latest version of the Nike Free Run. With a backpack full of sporty ambition (and shorts and shirts that I found covered with dust somewhere in my closet), I said adieu to freezing cold Berlin and Hola to 20-degree Barca.

As soon as we arrived at the hotel there was the unmistakable feeling of a short-term holiday. Ice cold milk shakes and 2 hours of free time spent by the pool immediately put a smile on my face. Beach and the Mediterranean Sea within eyeshot made me ask “is this real life?” But Nike wouldn’t be Nike if they let us lie lazily by the pool instead of experiencing their latest running innovation through intense physical exertion.

What followed was a tight schedule of detailed workouts and runs along the beach and in the mountains. Not to mention a wonderful excursion by boat, a nice bike ride through the city, as well as a detailed presentation about the Nike Free Run – the main protagonist of our 36-hour stay in Barcelona.

The Nike Free Run 5.0 will release in 32 color variations and assures an ultimate barefoot feeling that -personally approved- trains every single muscle of the leg. Before testing this feeling for yourself, click through the gallery on the next page to check out the sneaker. You’ll see that once again Nike has managed to create a sneaker that both looks great and performs excellently.
