Warmth without the sweat, lightweight protection, and visibility in the dark---all wants by winter runners. And often a matter of life or death-just ask the road kill.

Nike's answers the call- via its new reflective/water repelling running shoes -dubbed the Nike flash.

 Pack-6 styles-men's / women's=Nike LunarGlide 5 Shield, Nike Air Pegasus 30 Shield, Nike Free 5.0 Shield, Nike Lunar Eclipse 3 Shield, Nike Zoom Structure Triax 17 Shield and Nike Zoom Vomero 8 Shield...with reflective prints, a 3 layer mesh moisture wicking upper, a tightly woven mesh tongue, finished with a durable water-repellant (DWR) breathable coating...and a micro fleece collar and tongue lining (nice detail) complete the designs for added warmth. 
Nike Flash Pack Footwear for different kinds of runners---
  • Nike Air Pegasus 30 Shield: Thirty years strong, the Pegasus has been a running standard known for comfort and neutral cushioning. The thirtieth edition features an evolved upper for improved fit and a Nike Zoom unit in the heel for low-profile, responsive cushioning. 

  • Women's-Air Pegasus 30 Shield
    Men's-Air Pegasus 30 Shield

Women's-LunarGlide 5 Shield

  • Nike LunarGlide 5 Shield: For the runner with mild to moderate over-pronation, the Nike LunarGlide 5 Shield provides exceptional cushioning and support through Lunarlon, Dynamic Support and Nike Flywire technologies.

  • Nike Free 5.0 Shield:  An 8-millimeter midsole offset places the Nike Free 5.0 in the middle of the Nike Free spectrum between a barefoot-like feel and a traditional athletic shoe. Nike Flywire technology delivers a dynamic, glove-like fit and the Nike Free articulated flex grooves offer barefoot-like flexibility.

Apparel wise- the Nike Shield Flash Jacket is water repellant with 360º reflective visibility.

Details- the upper body and sleeves feature Storm-FIT 10 fabrication, providing breathable wind-and-water-resistance, keeping water out and allowing sweat vapors to escape. Subtle perforations down the jacket’s back help enhance breathability.
Runners- in Nike Shield Flash Jackets and running the headlights
The jacket’s design integrates special details tailored for runners, including hand warmers that pull down from the sleeves to keep hands covered and a runner-specific hood that stays put to help keep ears warm in inclement weather.
Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest with ultra-light, perforated down fill, strategically body mapped placed to vent excess heat/sweat but maintain the warmth AND mobility.
Informed by the “Nature Amplified” design ethos, the Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest was tested by elite runners in rugged conditions... The runner’s movement activates ventilation in the vest, allowing heat to escape the body through laser-cut holes situated between the down chambers. Wicking Dri-FIT side and shoulder panels further boost breathability, while the rip-stop nylon exterior provides durability and protection from wind.

If the weather warms up mid-run, the Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest folds up to fit in a pocket for easy layering and carrying.
Nike Dri-FIT Wool
Nike’s popular Dri-FIT technology is proven to help keep athletes dry and comfortable by moving sweat away from the skin to a garment’s outer layer where it can evaporate. For cool conditions, Nike Dri-FIT Wool is composed of lamb’s wool and polyester to provide warmth, breathability and mobility. Unlike pure wool, this blend includes Nike Dri-FIT to move sweat away from the body and dry quickly. Flat-seam construction reduces potential irritation from chafing and ensures garments fit smoothly over the body.
Nike Dri-FIT Wool is available in long-sleeve half-zip and crew styles for men and a v-neck and long-sleeve half-zip for women, making it a great option for layering or on its own.
