How the Nike Pro Collection Can Enhance Your Workout

How the Nike Pro Collection Can Enhance Your Workout


If you liked the Nike Pro Collection before, we’ve got some great news: it just got better.

1. You don’t have to choose between function or fashion.

With the updated Pro collection, you get both! Just because you’re working up a sweat doesn’t mean that you can’t look good while you exercise. The clothing designs incorporate deliberate lines of text to accentuate your movements during training exercises. The updated line also features a new color palette. Sure, black is great and matches most everything, but sometimes you want to switch up your style. With this collection’s lighter color options, you can look as cool as you feel.

2. The pieces are made to last.

The updated Pro collection was thoroughly tested in Nike’s labs to ensure that it would last in gym settings. It’s made 15% more durable in order to handle the friction of intense workouts. And the longer your clothing lasts the less time you have to spend shopping for replacements, which means more time for working out. It’s a win-win situation.

3. It’s no longer just a compression base layer.

With more styles and types of Nike Pro wear, you can have a whole closet of Pro clothing. Not only is there a full array of shirts, shorts, tights, bras – but with an additional line of Pro Therma apparel you can find jackets and hoodies too.

Festival Fashion

Festival Fashion

If you’ve ever been to a music festival before, the experience is one of a kind – the music is the sole factor tying people together. It has the power to turn strangers into friends and artists into idols.

They’re a getaway of sorts, allowing you to let loose and live in the moment.

Sounds perfect, right? It is, if you’re prepared. All it takes is blisters on your feet, sunburn on your shoulders, or a lost wallet and, suddenly, the moment of carefree bliss becomes chaos.

But with a little preparation, and the correct festival fashion, you’ll be one step closer to enjoying food, friends, and music.

Top Festival Fashion Clothing

Clothing

When choosing the best festival clothing, here are the important things to remember:

  • Light Layers: If you’re an all-day festival goer, layering is key. This helps you beat the heat during the hottest part of the day and stay warm after the sun goes down.
  • Comfort Over Couture: If you enjoy dressing in high-fashion runway outfits, more power to you. But be sure to seriously consider the pros and cons first. By your second trip to the bathroom, you may be wishing you had an easy, comfortable outfit instead of something covered in zippers, buckles, and straps.

Top Picks For Men: Lacoste Graphic Jersey Croc T-Shirt, Mitchell & Ness NBA Swingman Jersey, Nike Woven Flow Shorts

Top Picks For Women: Nike Summer Fun Crop T-Shirt, Champion Streak Dye Cropped T-Shirt, adidas Originals Animal Print Cropped T-Shirt

Top Festival Fashion Shoes

Footwear

Arguably, footwear is the most important aspect of festival fashion. First-time festival goers often make a mistake when it comes to footwear. Learn from this. You’ll be on your feet all day, standing for sets and walking from one end of the festival grounds to the other. You want to look fresh for Instagram-worthy pics, but there are options that can make you look good without hating yourself at the end of the weekend. With the right shoes, you can make a fashion statement without compromising comfort.

Top Picks For Men: Vans Old Skool, Nike Air Huarache, Jordan Retro 7

Top Picks For Women: Nike Air Max 720, Nike Air Force 1 07 LE Low, PUMA Cali

Top Festival Fashion Accesories

Accessories

With the right clothing and shoes your outfit is good to go, but to be truly festival-ready, you need accessories, something to makes you stand out from the crowd without feeling like an unnecessary prop. The perfect festival fashion accessories are a blend of fashion and function.

  • Hats:With styles to match any outfit, a hat can be a wonderful accessory. In the heat of the day, with the sun right above you, a hat can help protect your face from sunburn. Hats can also help you see better – there’s nothing  worse than the sun in your eyes while you’re trying to watch your favorite artist perform.
  • Socks:Socks may not be an accessory you instantly associate with festivals, but they can be an easy way to stand out and let your personality shine. (Though you may want to consider the possibility of a tan line depending on the sun and how much it hits your legs.)
  • Bags: Your bag choice is not a decision to be taken lightly. Before you purchase one, go online to the festival’s website to see if they have bag restrictions. Sometimes bags are required to be within a certain size limit, or they have to be clear/see-through. Once you find that information, you’re ready to shop for the perfect bag. Remember, you’ll want your hands and arms free so you can dance without restraint.

Top Picks For Men: Nike SB Icon Snapback Cap, Stance Increase The Peace Crew Socks, Vans Ranger Waist Pack

Top Picks For Women: adidas Originals Clear Waistpack, Champion Classic Twill Script Hat

Now that you have the best clothes, shoes, and accessories, you can enjoy the festival worry-free. Get lost in the music, dance with strangers, and make memories. After all, that’s what summer is all about.

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen: Built For Every Mile And Every Style

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen: Built For Every Mile And Every Style

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen Story

Whether you’re a serious runner or just in touch with the latest trends, there’s no doubt you’ve rocked a pair of ASICS. The footwear company is well-known for both their cutting-edge performance shoes and their stylish casual sneakers. And now, with their latest model, they’ve taken their expertise from both worlds and combined it into one game-changing shoe. Let’s meet the ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen and break down why it’s perfect for every part of your day.

A Completely New Level Of Cushioning

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen Cushioning

ASICS’ signature GEL system has been the gold standard for cushioning and responsiveness in shoes for years now. Yet, somehow, they’ve found a way to create something even better with the all-new HyperGEL. That proven GEL cushioning is mixed in with eTPU for seemingly limitless bounce and springiness while giving your foot the plush comfort it deserves.

Style That Flashes

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen Heel

Runners are going to love the reflective heel patch on the HyperGEL Kenzen while running at night – but it’s more than just a safety feature, it’s a style statement, too. A shoe this fresh deserves to shine, and this heel patch is that little touch you need to stand out next to all your friends and family.

A Fit You Won’t Believe

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen Upper

Plenty of brands claim that their sneakers offer a ‘sock-like fit’ these days, but thanks to the premium knit materials that make up the HyperGEL Kenzen’s upper, this shoe truly does hug your foot comfortably like your go-to pair of socks. You’ll be getting an unbeatable feel and reduced friction, whether pushing the pace or just lounging around.

Peace In Every Step

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen Symbols

The ASICS credo is ‘Sound Mind, Sound Body’ and you’ll be carrying those words with you everywhere thanks to the Japanese Kanji characters stamped on the heel and removable insole of this shoe. The character on the left foot translates to “mind” while the one on the right foot translates to “body.” Words to live by and work toward.

 


So no matter what you’ll use them for, it’s easy to see that the ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen shoes are up to the task. Make sure to grab your favorite pair on March 20 and get ready to rock it 24/7/365.
