Designed exclusively for the Olympic hopeful to wear in her 400m hurdle race on Sunday, Shakes-Drayton’s Nike Zoom Victory Elite trainers form part of a new Nike and Liberty department store collection.
Part of the ongoing collaboration between the two brands, the latest Nike x Liberty range includes heritage styles, like the Dunk and Air Max, as well as a second track spike trainer: the Nike Zoom JA Fly, which has been specifically designed for Nike’s elite track sprinters.
While Shakes-Drayton will be hard to miss in her luminous yellow beauties, which combine ground-breaking design with Liberty’s delicate Mirabelle heritage floral print, first introduced back in 1960, we’ll make do with wearing old-school Nike x Liberty dunks while – fingers crossed – watching her storm to victory on Sunday.
