Petal Pushers: Liberty x Nike Makes Flower-Covered Track Spikes



nike-1

The very first pair of sneakers we fell in love with (besides those flashing Little Mermaid L.A. Lights) were the Nike and Liberty of London collaboration sneakers. Pairing ditty florals with classic Nike shapes, the collab is still one of the best marriages of opposites we've ever seen.

Taking it to the next (athletic) level, Liberty and Nike's latest collaboration reinvents Nike's Zoom Victory Elite track spikes with a lime-green Liberty print. The shoe is designed specifically for the 1,500-meter run and includes fancy performance elements, like carbon plating and Nike Flywire tension cables. Additional Nike shapes in the fall '12 collection include the LunarGlide+ 4, the Free Run+ 3, Lunar Montreal, Air Max 1, and the Dunk Sky High. Love 'em (of course you do!)? They're retail for £150, and are guaranteed to fly off the shelves as fast as you'll be once you're running in them.
