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?

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