Today’s Kit: Sunday Funday

November 23, 2014

Winter is upon us. As we’re nearing the holidays, it’s only natural to start preparing for the festivities and, well, that includes the staying-in-shape part along with keeping warm. With a little help from Nike’s online Holiday Gift Guide, that shouldn’t be too hard. Here are a few of our new faves.

Customization at its finest

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31 Flash iD

Get the protection you need when running under dim lighting thanks to the highly reflective bead accents on these running shoes that let you shine where necessary. You can even stay protected from the rain with the engineered foam that repels water on the upper. Style the upper by adding Tiger or Polka Square graphics to give these lightweight kicks a more personalized façade.  For customized comfort, you can select the width that best suits your feet and choose among cushioned or responsive sockliners.

Warmth with versatility

Nike Fleece Aeroloft Windrunner

It’s all in the name. Influenced by the Nike Windrunner tech jacket, this style is a 2-in-1. It comes with an original thermal fabric and smooth jersey with a nylon spacer, ultimately providing for ideal warmth without all the extra layers for weight. Excess body vapor escapes through layered perforations. You can even get two different looks with the reversible design. Protect small items in the bonded zippers and you’re good to go.
