Nike Sportswear is honoring legendary runner Joan Benoit Samuelson through their upcoming Nike Beautiful X Powerful Collection through four premium women’s exclusive releases on Thursday, October 6th. The collection embodies the fierce competitive spirit of Samuelson, the first-ever winner of the Women’s Olympic Marathon when the competition was introduced at the 1984 Los Angeles Games.
The Nike Beautiful X Powerful Collection utilizes the ever-popular “Triple Black” aesthetic through premium constructions on the Nike Classic Cortez, the Nike Air Max Thea, the Nike Air Presto, and the Nike Air Huarache Ultra. Each pair dons a subtle cracked cement print reminiscent of Tinker Hatfield’s iconic elephant printed aesthetic for a subtle, yet premium twist to each exclusive pair. The insoles read “There is no finish line” in an effort to bring Samuelson’s legendary achievements to the forefront.
Be sure to check out detailed preview images of each “Triple Black” Nike Beautiful X Powerful Collection offering below and let us know which pair is your favorite by taking your thoughts to the comments section.
