Nike Air Max 95 Triple Black

01

Image

01. Visible heel and forefoot cushioning.

Words

There are no shortage of desirable trainers hitting the market these days, especially from Nike. The brand's recent Air Max 95 push is a welcome one, as long as they keep producing colourways like this. Featuring a mix of Black and Anthracite materials to create subtly contrasting textures, the 20-year-old design continues to feel quite modern.

Nike Air Presto Lightning QS

01

Image

01. Quick strike release.

Words

The Nike Air Presto is an interesting shoe that comes from one of my favourite eras in the brand's history. The performance benefits it had in 2000 might be a little outdated, but it's still a style I'm particularly fond of, and the sock-like fit makes it an appealing casual option. I'm not usually one for wild patterns or prints on footwear, but for some reason the lightning motif just works on the Presto.

Nike Air Force 1 Hi Retro QS

01

01. Summit White/Wolf Grey.

Words

It's hard for this shoe to not immediately evoke memories of Just for Kicks, and the tales told by Grandmaster Caz and Bonz Malone. Storied history aside, it's a great sneaker with a timeless design, not often available in the Hi version, especially in such a classic colourway.

Nike Cortez

01. Suede and nylon.

Words

The Nike Cortez is a shoe that I've never had particularly strong feelings about. It's so tied to West Coast hip hop, and I've always associated more with the East – aesthetically and sonically rather than geographically. However, these simple reissues are about as good a version of the shoe as you could hope for, and seeing them recently had me thinking about embracing my own coast.

NikeLab Lunar Huarache Light

—01. Black.

Words

Launching on March 13th, the latest NikeLab shoe release is one of their best to date. The combination of the Huarache Light with a Lunar sole, in two minimal colours, looks great. The only challenge will be choosing between the two options and getting a pair before they've sold out.

F.C. Real Bristol Spring-Summer '15

01

Image

—01. Emblem Crew and Mesh Tee.

Words

I'm not sure if it's the significance of sportswear in current fashion trends or the collection itself, but the latest FCRB offering feels more wearable than it has in previous seasons. The product section of the brand's website is filled with appealing options well worth tracking down from their ever-expanding list of stockists.

With a solid month of training down, and a little over two to go, I'm feeling faster. I can feel the benefits of the group runs and hill repeats already – something that I'd never done before, and probably wouldn't have on my own. I've implemented more omega-3 fatty acids, have been drinking a lot of tart cherry juice, and have been more conscious about eating carbohydrates before runs, but especially after, in the recommended 4/1 ratio to protein, something I was surprised to learn. In terms of achieving this easily, Vega has been a great option so far.

The last two clinics in the training course have focused heavily on injury prevention. Besides actually running a lot, this is probably the most vital aspect of preparing for the marathon, and certainly my biggest concern...

–01. 79 days to go.

Words

One of my goals at the start of the year was to run a marathon in 2015. I've been running for about two and half years now and having completed a handful of half-marathons and a variety of trail races, I felt like it was time to take the next step. With the support of Nike Running and Vancouver's Running Room, I'll complete that goal in 79 days at the BMO Vancouver Marathon.
