Nike has opened a brand new store in Lincoln Park just for women and donned it with an exciting new pair of shoes. The new Nike store called Nike Training Club Lincoln Park a.k.a. NTC Lincoln Park is full of apparel, shoes and accessories just for women. You can find everything from running gear to yoga gear. Nike's newest shoe can even take you from fitness class straight to the outdoors.
The new Nike Studio Wrap is five shoes in one! I'll explain more about that in a minute. I've been to yoga classes, pilates classes and have been dancing for my whole life. One thing that I have learned is that sometimes barefoot is not always better. Sometimes in Yoga class I find that my feet slip on my towel and I can't hold my pose or I don't want my feet touching the ground in a certain environment. Socks are great but they can't grip the ground or a mat. Nike has taken care of that with their new studio wrap.
The Studio Wrap is a toeless shoe that wraps snugly around the foot. On the bottom are little grippers under the ball of the foot and the heel. That way you have a little grip to help you hold poses or hold that dance move. Even further your shoes come with wraps that can be added to offer extra arch support or your own unique style to the shoe. Or my fave, make the straps look like a ballet point shoe. You can even purchase wraps in different colors to show your style. And that's not all.
Traveling to and from class has become much more efficient with the slip on shoes that go directly over wrapped shoes. Allowing you the freedom to walk outside without ruining your stylish gripping shoes. You can even wear these without the wrap shoes underneath. All of these items come together to give you a functional and stylish shoe product.
I was able to experience these shoes at the studio located upstairs in NTC. Nike Master Trainer Traci Copeland from New York came in to teach us a yoga class with the new shoes. The class was great and the shoes did exactly what they said they would do. I highly recommend them if you want a little foot coverage, extra support or something stylish for yoga, barre or dance classes etc.
More good news, NTC has begun offering free workout classes in their studio! Check out the schedule and sign up for a class you have no excuse not to try one. Let me know what you think of the shoes. I always love hearing your feedback.
Have a fun and fit day, Chicago.
