On Our Radar: Nike 2010 Running Collection

The fitness world may not have a fashion week, but this weekend I previewed some of Nike's 2010 Spring running line, shoes and jackets, at the Nike Running Summit here in San Francisco. At the event, held the day before the 6th annual Nike Women's Marathon, designers explained their two inspiration behind their latest sneakers and running gear: runners and lightweight.

The first concept is fairly self explanatory — they design their gear to complement the motion of running and what runners need. Secondly, they pared everything down to shave off weight leaving the running feeling free and unencumbered.

To learn more about the shoes coming out early next year, keep reading.
Nike is building on its dynamic support system that they introduced with the Lunar Glides. In eye-catching colors, the Lunar Swift ($85) offers much of the engineering that went into the Glide but at a lower price point. Taking a step up to the Lunar Elite, their endurance race shoe, Nike has put some feedback from their elite marathoners into the new shoe, making them more durable.

The jackets have been streamlined too. Look for better venting, more useful pocket placement, and on one a hood designed just for running. The colors are fun and tropical, perfect for Spring. Nike's new designs will be out in January, just in time to help make all those New Year's resolutions a reality.

Can't wait for these. I'm now going to wait to buy new running shoes until the new Lunar ones come out - I like the new colors much better.

I've been running in the Nike Nucleus, and they're great. I have freakishly narrow feet, so Nike is really the only brand that works for me. It's kind of frustrating because I've heard good things about asics.

chloe bella, I bought the Lunar Glides for my husband and he loves them. They are much lighter than his previous shoes, and he is running faster and more comfortably now. I was skeptical, but I plan to buy myself a pair after the holidays.

Oh, the NWM shoes bring a tear to my eye - it was seriously the best day of my life! Love the new collection; it fits perfectly with my current obsession with all things neon. Has anyone tried the Lunar Glides?
