Trying to beat the heat while chasing your personal best is every runner’s dilemma. Just ask any Usain Bolt and Mo Farah types, who make sprints and long distance races look like a morning stroll under the sun. More often than not, the best prep for beginners to ascend to this world class level is to first kit yourself right. The ongoing NikeLab x Gyakusou collection may be the answer to all your running-related prayers. Manufactured out of sweat-beating Dri-Fit material – the same kind that all your fave sports stars have been using for some time – it aids in ventilating the body which acts as a perfect temperature control to ensure you don’t pass out from heatstroke in your bid to cross the finish line. This feature is also supported by the perforated waistbands on the running shorts that ensure optimum comfort and breathability. For the non-athlete, however, the best part is the inclusion of Undercover’s Jun Takahashi’s designer sensibilities. His addition of wavy lines on singlet and tights aren’t just for aesthetic purposes; they are fashioned to be reflective and highly visible which is a safety nod for those with a preference for night runs. And if you’re still having a hangover from the Olympic Games, Takahashi’s choice of colours is a subtle hint of summer in Rio de Janeiro. Hey, your timing might not be good (for now) but at least you’re still a winner on the fashion front.
