In HER Shoes: Nike Global Running Coach Bec's Favorite Running Shoes
We broke this segment into 3 parts - running, training, and sportswear or athleisure. So, what are Coach Bec’s favorite running options?
Number 1 - HER “everyday miles”
At the moment, Coach Bec is loving the new Nike React Infinity. If you have ran in the Nike Epic Reacts (predecessor of the Nike React Infinity) before then you have already experienced the undeniable responsiveness of the React technology. As Nike’s longest lasting foam technology, Nike React is not only SUPER soft but offers 13% greater energy return than Nike’s lunarlon foam (found in Nike Pegasus and others). More responsiveness means less effort during your runs so you can go further faster.
Number 2 - HER speed workouts
Our HER community knows that Coach Bec has a need for speed and what better tool for speed than the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next%. The Nike Next% technology was designed and engineered to deliver measurable performance benefits. Lightweight, soft, and responsive, the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly Next% offers the ultimate triad that moves runners past the barriers of speed and distance, helping them break records.
The Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next% is set to drop Summer 2020. The prototype was worn by Eliud Kipchoge when he broke the two-hour marathon last October.
Number 3 - HER Threshold Run
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That is to say when it comes to run reliability, the Nike Pegasus has held a special place in runners hearts for almost 37 years. Which brings us to Coach Bec’s third running shoe pick, the Nike Pegasus Turbo 2.
The Nike Pegasus Turbo 2 is lightweight, soft, and long lasting. With 37 years of innovation behind its design and technology, it is easy to understand why this shoe is considered reliable and comfortable. It’s rocker-like silhouette makes transitioning from toe to heel effortless so that runners put out less energy, while it’s generous use of ZoomX cushioning creates a soft pillow-like underfoot feel without compromising fast responsiveness. This shoe “blurs the line between racing flat and daily running shoe”.
