Take Every Advantage: Outrun the Weather with NIKE

Nike Protects Runners When Mother Nature Attacks
Runners are protected head to toe in apparel and footwear that has waterproof and reflective elements

Manila, 2011 – In our tropical climate, rain is an expected part of the daily weather. But during the wet or rainy season, as rainfall increases and temperatures dip, rain can definitely make for a more unpleasant run.

In Southeast Asia, most rain falls during the monsoon seasons, which happen at least twice yearly. In Philippines, the summer monsoon rains bring 1500mm to 5000mm of rainfall each year, with the greatest rain falling in the mountainous region. However drenching the rain is, it is not normally associated with strong winds.

Running in the rain can be exhilarating, however, if you’re not careful or well equipped, it does increase the possibility of injury. Rain reduces your grip on running surfaces – wet roads, paths and sidewalks can be slippery so extra care needs to be taken – your running footwear needs a good grip to cope with the reduction of friction.

Nike Storm Fly Jacket gears you up for wet weather.

Being properly outfitted with the right gear certainly helps. Avoid non-wicking garments (such as cotton) which will retain water and become heavy and soggy. Don’t make the mistake of overdressing – we tend to assume that wet weather means cold weather, but that’s not always the case. Dress in lightweight, breathable layers and add a water-resistant jacket on top. The Nike Storm Fly Jacket 2.0 for men and the Nike Storm Fly Jacket for women, offer excellent functionality with pockets, reflectivity, adjustability and a hood. Constructed with Storm-FIT 1 fabric, these jackets are a great choice for a runner who is looking for a full-zip jacket that keeps the rain and wind out while letting sweat vapors escape. This season, Nike running gear features reflective elements that use the principles of retro-reflection through glass spheres in the fabric that refract light back along the same path of the oncoming beam. Reflective details on the jacket make sure you are visible even during low-light runs.

Nike LunarGlide+ 3 Shield gives you comfort and stability while protecting you.

To protect runners from the elements and keeping them dry, warm and visible, Nike presents the Nike LunarGlide+ 3 Shield.

Superior stability, ultra-soft cushioning and secure fit deliver a smooth ride and great support in a lightweight, flexible and breathable package. The Nike LunarGlide+ 3 features the distinctive Dynamic Support wedge that provides smooth transitions throughout the run; improved use of ultra-soft Lunarlon foam along the footbed for cushion and comfort; and an innovative mid-foot strap to deliver improved fit and support.

The Nike LunarGlide+ 3 Shield design includes insole fabrication for warmth which is important when your feet are likely to get wet. Deep grooves in the sole (cut differently on the men’s and women’s shoe to suit gender-specific running styles) and green rubber lugs keep your gait efficient and your footing firm, especially in wet or slippery conditions. Easy-to-clean water-resistant uppers mean you don’t need to worry about steering clear of muddy puddles, and high reflectivity ensures you’ll be seen even if light is really gloomy.
