Olympian Allyson Felix Gives You An Exclusive Peek At The New Nike Print

To help set your goals at the gym, it'd be nice to look toward gold medalist Allyson Felix for inspiration, but with a 200m time of 21.88 seconds, it's hard to be anything but realistic about it. You may be fast, but Felix is much faster. But, in terms of what she wears? Well, that's actually an attainable goal.
Felix was an obvious choice to help debut the new Nike Pro Print, a hand tie-dyed, digitally rendered, graphic pattern, which will be available for both Olympian-level athletes and three-times-a-week gym rats like yourself. Nike slowed Felix down (thankfully, otherwise all we'd see of the print would have been a blur) for an exclusive moving image that'll let you get a taste of what's to come.
Said Ryan Noon, Nike's global women's apparel designer, "One of the amazing things you can do with graphics is change the mental mind of how the body feels — placing the upright arrows at the heel implies a psychophysical feeling of lift — and the green and purple stripes wrapping the thighs imply the feeling of power through strength." The prints will be available next summer, just in time to ditch your basic black compression pants (and basic split times) for a whole new set of goals.
