NikeWomen has collaborated with two of the world’s most respected female comic artists, Jan Duursema and Amanda Connor on a series of artwork to capture the epic technical aspects of the new NikeWomen Holiday ‘11 Winter collection.
The NikeWomen Legend Pant, Victory Bra, TR Fit Winter shoe, Beautility Shell and Thermal Hoody are all illustrated in various scenarios, designed to make any woman overcome any obstacle.
With winter training well under way and the biting cold setting in you might find that motivation is at an all time low. If fighting against the elements is setting you back, NikeWomen Holiday 2011 collection has come to your rescue, as renowned female comic book artists, Duursema and Connor bring a whole new inspirational heroine aspect to the collection.
The new hyper-warm materials and water repellent innovations bring both style and practicality to your training, making getting there and staying there much more enjoyable.
NikeWomen Pro have been working alongside the comic artists to create designs that will help to improve the quality of your training and your comfort whilst doing it, with the hyperwarm crew being a huge aspect of this.
The art of layering has been incorporated into this collection including clean, simple designs such as, sleeves with thumbholes to hold them in place and keep the arms and wrists warm, one-to-one fit like a second skin and soft, brushed hyper-warm interior material designed to trap heat to keep you warm, while the Dri-FIT Jersey helps to pull sweat of the body.
Sportsister’s top buys from this collection to tackle all your winter weather needs, would be the Beautility Shell (£150) and Thermal Hoody (£90).
The Beautility Shell is made to take on the elements. It’s zippered storm skirt gives you extra protection from the wet and mud, with a silhouette tailored to flatter a woman’s figure and a subtle contrasting thread print pattern.
Similarly, the Thermal Hoody’s Therma-FIT fabric helps retain warmth in varying weather conditions, while it’s water repellent lower back panel works to keep you dry.
The NikeWomen Holiday’11 Winter Collection certainly takes on a superhuman tone that combines high performance details with style.
