STYLING

FRESH RUNNING GEAR FROM NIKE

By Steven Potter, 2 February 2019

Thinking about pavement-pounding your way through 2019, or are you just curious to see Nike’s freshest crop of sportswear? Tick both boxes by checking out three looks from the activewear giants being given the runaround by Ruddy Trobrillant, an ASOS Insider and member of Nike’s Paris Run Club. For even more inspiration, keep scrolling for our catch up with Ruddy himself to talk all things running and what exercise means to him.

Getting motivated in the February temperatures can be harder than your first 5km, but all that can change with a trusty jacket. Take this retro Nike Windrunner for instance. An updated throwback from the 70s, it’s lightweight, durable and bold enough to run out the winter in style. It might even make its way into your early-spring ‘fit considering colour’s big on the 2019 agenda. Channelling another key hue, that neon waist pack with a built-in bottle holder is your up-to-date hydration station. You could even swap that bottle out for a tin come festival season...

Always a purveyor of sweet sneaks, Nike channels the same coppable styling into its sports footwear, too. With a sleek silhouette and contrasting pops of colour, the Epic React 2s combine style and functionality in a seriously steezy way. Using Nike’s React foam technology, the creps are designed to give you first-wear comfort for up to 300 miles. The springy foam absorbs impact and propels you forward as you set off. It’s like an extra little push with every stride – and, let’s be fair, we all need that sometimes.

What about when you’ve worked up a sweat and need to lose a layer? Well, just make sure your running tee has a mash-up of this season's key hues like Ruddy's here. With that many tonal shades, the T-shirt would look just as good under a transitional jacket as it does teamed with Nike’s Challenger shorts. It’s not just a covetable camo hue that the top's got going for it, though – Nike’s built-in Dri-FIT tech also draws sweat away from the body to keep Ruddy comfortable on his run.

Just because you’re working out doesn’t mean you need to skimp on your logo-lovin' credentials – so, why not opt for this T-shirt and shorts set? Complete with repeater Nike Air branding and moisture-managing Dri-FIT tech, it's a masterclass in matching monochrome. Sadly, medals for athletic prowess are not included.
How did you get into running?
I started running about a year-and-a-half ago to stay in shape, but I found it also relaxed my mind. I didn’t realise how much I needed it!

Where is your favourite place to train?
I just run everywhere I can, I love it. I don’t have a specific place I prefer but I do love running in the rain.

What tips do you have for people struggling to get motivated?
Life is hard, but it is beautiful. Take the time to think about you and relax your mind and come running with me. We can run the world together! For real, though, it’s so enjoyable, it helps me to feel my mind and my body. It helps me to relax.
