Runners going out for springtime runs need to be prepared for all sorts of weather. They want to stay warm without taking on heavy, bulky layers. Runners can keep both comfortable and stylish in apparel featuring Nike Sphere technology, which provides warmth without the weight.
The innovative fabric uses a 3-D structure to create space between the body and the garment, where air can be held and warmed by the body’s own natural heat. The fabric’s structure also allows moisture to escape, helping to maintain excellent breathability. The Nike Running Spring 2013 Collection offers three silhouettes featuring Nike Sphere technology for women:
Nike Sphere Bomber Jacket
Keep the wind out with the sleekly fitted Nike Sphere Bomber Jacket. The full-zip jacket is water repellent, wind resistant and extremely light, so it won’t weigh runners down. The lightweight taffeta fabric features a Nike Sphere and Dri-FIT mesh zoned lining to help keep runners at their optimal temperature. The sleeve cuffs pull down over the hands for extra warmth.
Nike Sphere Half-Zip
Combining the warmth and breathability of Nike Sphere technology, the Nike Sphere Half-Zip’s fabrication offers a soft feel against the skin and a stylish design. The collar has an asymmetrical half-zip that exposes a loose fit gusset for added warmth and a unique look. Sleeve cuffs can be pulled over the hands for extra warmth and thumbholes hold them in place, helping to keep hands warm and cozy over the miles.
Nike Sphere Full-Zip
The Nike Sphere Full-Zip's runner-specific hood with drawcord provides added protection from the elements, while a full zipper means the jacket is easy on and off and allows for personalized ventilation. The hoody’s fabrication provides excellent breathability and a soft feel against the skin, and Nike Sphere stars for insulated, lightweight warmth. The fitted design is flattering to the body’s natural curves and adds to the jacket’s high style and function.
BOTTOMS: FIT TO PERFORM
In cold weather it’s important to keep the body warm from top to bottom. Whether runners prefer a long tight or capris, the Nike Running Spring 2013 Collection mixes things up with fun prints and designs – all fit to perform.
Nike Tech Tight
A classic member of the Nike Running family, the Tech Tight works just as well on its own or as a layer. Nike Dri-FIT fabric helps keep runners warm, dry and comfortable during their most intense cold weather workouts, while back-of-the-knee mesh delivers further ventilation at just the right spot. Ankle zippers make the tights easy on and off, and flat seams add to the smooth look and comfort. The back zipper pocket uses a vapor barrier for dry storage, while hits of reflectivity help keep runners visible in the dark.
