If you haven’t seen the new winter running gear Nike came out with — Nike Flash, prepare to drool. While we love all of the FitGear, there’s just somethin’ about new kicks [that light up!] that push us over the edge + make us want to run out the door to grab a pair.
RAIN OR SHINE, THIS SHOE WILL PROTECT YOUR FEET — The three-layer mesh combines support + flexibility + ventilation, ++ acts as a barrier to repel water. You will be able to run comfortably [no wet feet!] in any condition while rocking these.
LIGHT UP THE NIGHT — Reflective elements allow you to remain visible in the night.
STABILIZES YOU DURING THOSE *NOT SO SMOOTH* WINTER TRAILS — A wider footprint from the rubber soles allows greater stabilization, which is so important while running outdoors [you never know what elements may try to knock you off your feet ; )].
FIERCE — Because let’s be real, how BA are these shoes?
CHAARG GIRL APPROVED //
We asked Sarah — our Chapter Trainer — to test out these shoes + see what she thought! She’s an avid runner + preaches outdoor running — here’s what she had to say!
I’ve trained in countless Nike shoes — from Frees to Lunar Glides + now the Air Zoom Pegasus Zoom. The thing I always love about Nikes is that they always make a statement! These were no exception with the bright purple + metallic silver colors that were extremely reflective [great for these grey winter days!]. When I first picked them up I was shocked at how light they were — they honestly reminded me of Frees, yet had a weatherproof lining to them that made my feet cozy while lacing up.
During my run, I was at first nervous about the fact that it felt like there was barely anything on my feet. As someone who has suffered from stress fractures, support is something I’m constantly looking for. I found there to be a good balance between support + lightness, making them a great mid-distance shoe. Not to mention, the reflective weatherproof lining really came in handy when it started misting during my dark run [I forgot how the weather in Ohio now goes from grey to pitch black in a second — eek].
I am so excited to #runCHAARG with these all winter long ++ to have them motivate me to take more + more of my runs outside!
We are lookin’ for the next CHAARG Ambassadors to start a CHAARG Chapter at their university + need your help! Regram this insta or comment below [on our instagram post!] + tag girls who you think would be interested in this opportunity. Tag as many girls as possible! The challenge ends TONIGHT at midnight — one lucky girl will receive these awesome kicks ; )
PS//You will definitely want these kicks for our winter runCHAARG — we may or may not be incorporating outdoor running : )
