This collection marks Nike’s development of the running shoe over the past four decades, combined with Liberty’s signature prints to create a very desirable trainer line that features a range of Nike classics. The Cortez, which made its debut in 1972, was Nike’s first ever running shoe; 1987 saw the launch of the Air Max 1, the first shoe to feature a visible air unit; in 2004 Nike launched Free 5.0, its first barefoot running shoe, again featuring revolutionary technology. All the models are given a contemporary twist with Liberty’s Lagos Laurel print, available in red, gold and purple depending on your choice of shoe.
A dedicated pop-up shop in Liberty will also open this month to showcase a capsule apparel clothing collection to accompany the heritage running shoes. This will include hoodies, Tempo shorts and racer-back vests, all printed with motifs from the Lagos Laurel design. This is definitely one of the most stylish running collections of the year so we’ll race you to the tills. The line will be extended in May; check back soon for more updates.
