With the historic New York City Marathon just two Sundays away, Nike Running has teamed up with long-time Nike purveyor West NYC of the Upper West Side to create a limited edition Friend & Family collection of Nike runners both classic and contemporary as well as Nike Running apparel for men and women. The silhouettes chosen are the Air Max 1, the first ever Nike shoe with visible Air, and the Nike Lunarglide+ 2, Nike’s latest Lunar-cushioned runner featuring Dynamic Support and FitSole, two spot-on choices to pay homage to the traditional sporting event with international relevance.
Each colorway of the shoes in this commemorative pack is inspired by the rich and copious colors of NYC’s Central Park during the marathon season; the sea of trees and fauna and the decadent tones of the sunset over the Manhattan skyline are just some of the inspirational pillars of this limited edition pack, with a West NYC Running Club set of hoodies and sweatshirts also being part of this one-of-a-kind collaboration. Just 26 pairs of each shoe will be available in a raffle-style release – and the only way to enter into the West NYC x Nike Running sweepstakes is to purchase a piece of apparel. Take a look at the entire West NYC x Nike Running Friends & Family Collection after the jump and hit up WEST to get yours!
