Players of any level know that when the clocks go back, you’ve got more than just the opposing team to face on the pitch. The weather gets wetter, the temperature gets lower and the light gets dimmer – and you’ve got to go out and play your best in spite of it.
But thankfully, Nike have got your back in more ways than one with their vast array of products designed to help you get through the winter months.
From keeping you warmer during games, to dryer during pre-match, the idea is simple: the less you’re distracted by the weather, the more focused you are on the game.
This year, the Hi-Vis theme from their football boots collection runs through the Nike training and Hyperwarm ranges – here are some of our favourite pieces:
Nike Hi-Vis Incyte Ball
This weekend the Nike Incyte Hi-Vis Ball will be introduced into the Barclays Premier League, La Liga BBVA and Serie A.
Continuing the tradition of making the most technologically advanced footballs in the game, the Nike Hi-Vis Incyte ball features performance innovations that are designed to help increase reaction, touch, ball flight and visibility.
Nike Pro Combat Hyperwarm
The colder weather can take a toll on athletic performance. The cold air, snow and rain can lower body temperature and lead to decreased stamina and physical frustration.
Designed to combat the elements, new Nike Pro Combat Hyperwarm base-layer apparel helps keep body temperature regulated in a variety of weather conditions with breathability, water resistance and a streamlined fit.
Nike Pro Combat Hyperwarm Dri-Fit Max Shield Mock
With a long-sleeve, mock-neck silhouette, the Nike Pro Combat Hyperwarm Dri-FIT Max Shield Mock provides warmth with breathability.
This top features Nike Shield technology to keep the lower arms dry in the rain or snow, while Dri-FIT Max pulls sweat away from the skin to help reduce chill.
Large ventilation over high-heat zones helps regulate temperature – an important attribute for peak performance. Dri-FIT Max technology removes sweat more quickly to keep athletes drier and warmer, helping to reduce the chill-effect. The top is available in multiple colors including a stand out Hi-Vis Volt and Electro Purple, modelled here by PSG’s resident wonder-goal machine Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Nike Hi-Vis Equipment Collection
Nike Football also offers a complete winter training kit bag solution of Hi-Vis products available in store and online. Products include the Mercurial Lite Shin Guards, Sideline Woven Jacket, Squad Longer Knit Short, Squad Training Top, Football Shield Backpack and NPC Hyperstrong Compression Slider Shorts.
All of this gear perfectly compliments the Nike Hi-Vis range of football boots, launched earlier this month.
