Liberty x Nike spiked Zoom Victory Elite trainer
We couldn't possibly wait until Trainer Tuesday to share this beautiful and quite extraordinary training shoe with you - another collaboration between sportswear giant Nike and heritage print gurus Liberty of London. The Zoom Victory Elite is a professional grade, high performance track shoe, complete with the spikes that 'allow elite athletes to find their greatness'.
The first shoe of its kind to be given a Liberty Makeover, the Zoom Victory Elite was specifically designed for the 1500 metre event - the foremost middle-distance track event in any athletic tournament, which is taking place today at the Olympic Stadium. The sole of the she is in fact a dynamic carbon plate to maximise the wearer's potential, covered with a lightweight upper. The unusual materials used gives the underside of the shoe a distinctive gold look:
The design of the shoe is something else: a striking on-trend neon upper decorated with Liberty's 'Mirabelle' print: a classic design dating back to the 1960s, when its flagship store stood in the heart of swinging London. What better way to commemorate British achievement and history? We love the juxtaposition of the delicate floral print on the fluorescent yellow, and the result - which is just so unmistakably 2012!
Zoom Victory Elite in Mirabelle print is exclusive to Liberty at £150
