Nike’s Beautiful x Powerful division is using a quartet of new sneakers to shine a light on an exceptional athlete. Comprising a Blazer Low, Air Max Thea, Air Max Jewell and Cortez, the pack honours Olympic sprinting champion Elaine Thompson. The Jamaican superstar's 100m and 200m personal bests are engraved on the aglets, and her ‘One life, one chance’ mantra is printed on the insoles.
The fine leather uppers pitch the shoe as more leisure than performance, though with an abundance of perforations for air flow they look as speedy as they do stylish.
The Nike Beautiful x Powerful x Elaine Thompson pack is available now from Hype DC.
