Amazing red trainers? Yep, we think so!
As the weather starts to draw in and the end of bikini season is in sight it’s always tempting to hang up your trainers and swap sit-ups for slippers. However, if there’s one thing that is going to keep you motivated and moving in the next few months it’s the new Autumn/Winter range from Nike, Force of Nature…
Drawing inspiration from the world’s leading female athletes such as U.S. soccer star Sydney Leroux, Chinese beach volleyball standouts Zhang Xi and Xue Chen and modern dancer Sofia Boutella, Nike captures the inner strength and beauty of these women and has created a pretty awesome range of sportswear that is both high-tech and pretty easy on the eye, even if we say so ourselves!
We love those leggings!
The stellar range incorporates pretty much everything- from running gear to training to lifestyle apparel and footwear, and even the Nike Free Bionic high intensity training shoe, the compressive Nike Sculpt Tight and the seamless, breathable Nike Pro Elite Knit Short Sleeve Top. On top of that, Nike have introduced seasonally relevant items such as Nike Dri-FIT Wool and new Nike Sportswear silhouettes which bring performance and style to Mother Nature’s grittiest seasons. We want!
However, it’s the way Nike has been able to marry impeccable functionality with the most fashion-forward sports equipment that has really got us Grazia girls going nuts. Yes, whether you’re a fitness fanatic or a first time trier, what certainly unites us girls together with this range is the focus on fashion forward style. From geometric patterned sweat tops to bold lime trainers, Nike has really hit the nail on the head with this season’s upcoming key looks and emphasis on sports-luxe. Some of the pieces have in fact been designed as lifestyle apparel, so whether you decide to wear it down the gym or to meet your mates for a drink, the layered croppies and swoosh leggings are bang on trend.
These gorgeous pieces will actually want to make you get to the gym, we promise
Ultimately, Force of Nature is a celebration of the fashionable sportswomen in all of us (plus, the range is a great excuse to get sporty, even if you’re not. One can always pretend…) So, kick off your slippers and go get kitted up. In the words of Nike, ‘If you have a body, then you are an athlete’, and us athletes gotta work out (and look good, too).
