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.

NTC German TRAINTORUN 2 Nike Launches NTC   App In Germany
Just in time for the summer season and only about a month before the first ‘We Own The Night’ run in Berlin will take place (stay tuned for more info), Nike launches the famous NTC workout app for women in Germany. With about 115 workouts, all designed by professional Nike trainers, home training reaches a new level.

Highsnobette, last week joined a personal TRAIN TO RUN session to not only test the new app but also get some helpful tips to prepare for the 10K run on May 24 in Berlin. The result of the session, that usually doesn’t take longer then 15 to 30 minutes, are not only burning legs but first and foremost the cognition that only running doesn’t help to get ready for a run. With over 90 more dimensional workout routines, everyone will find the right way to get in shape this summer.

Nike Running #MakeItCount Campaign – Recap

Nike make it count 5 Nike Running #MakeItCount Campaign   Recap
With a New Year’s resolution to be more active, the Highsnobiety and Highsnobette teams joined Nike’s global running movement to #MakeItCount. Highly motivated and equipped with the latest running gear from Nike, our teams met regularly for morning runs in the park and continued our resolution in Milan, Pitti Uomo, and Paris Fashion Week. With freezing cold temperatures in Berlin and a constant darkness outside, it was not always easy to find the motivation to stick with our goals. Fortunately, having teammates kept our spirits up when temperatures were low and our goal of running 12.5km a week was successfully met.

After four weeks, a few people from the team are happy that it’s over, but most of us – and that’s what counts – find ourselves living a more active and confident lifestyle that we plan to continue well into the new year.

Over the course of the last month, both Highsnobiety and Highsnobette followers on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter kept up to date on the progress of our runs. For our final run we decided to do something a little bit more special. Watch the interactive video and check out our recap on the next page.
