Winter is right around the corner and Nike got together with those runners that brave the elements and log miles in the rain, sleet, and snow. With the information collected the Nike designers created the Nike Flash Pack, a reflective and water repellant line of shoes to keep runners protected from the elements. Each shoe in the pack has a reflective print that is invisable during the day but comes out when under nighttime lights to help runners stay visible.
To keep shoes water resistant, designers incorporated a three-layer mesh that repels water while allowing breathability. A tightly woven mesh makes up the shoes’ tongues, which are finished with a durable water-repellant (DWR) breathable coating. A micro fleece collar and tongue lining complete the design for added warmth.
Three of the pack styles include:
- Nike LunarGlide 5 Shield: For the runner with mild to moderate over-pronation, the Nike LunarGlide 5 Shield provides exceptional cushioning and support through Lunarlon, Dynamic Support and Nike Flywire technologies.
- Nike Air Pegasus 30 Shield: Thirty years strong, the Pegasus has been a running standard known for comfort and neutral cushioning. The thirtieth edition features an evolved upper for improved fit and a Nike Zoom unit in the heel for low-profile, responsive cushioning.
- Nike Free 5.0 Shield: An 8-millimeter midsole offset places the Nike Free 5.0 in the middle of the Nike Free spectrum between a barefoot-like feel and a traditional athletic shoe. Nike Flywire technology delivers a dynamic, glove-like fit and the Nike Free articulated flex grooves offer barefoot-like flexibility.
