The strength of the new Nike Pants Studio range is in its functionality and freedom to move. Each of the nine pants (Nike Flow Pant, Nike Swift Pant, and Nike Bliss Pant) and tights (Nike Pro Tight, Nike Fly Tight, Nike Speed Tight, Nike Sculpt Tight, and Nike Power Tight), are designed for those who want more options of apparel to choose from that helps to enhance the individual’s specific activities whether it be yoga, running, high-intensity interval workouts or ballet. There’s one for everyone!
“We are designing for every athlete — no matter what activity they’re doing,” says Jamie Lee, Senior Design Director for Nike Women’s Training. “On top of expanding the styles, we’re giving choices for materials, finishes, feel, rises, lengths and features.”
How did they do it?
The Nike team interviewed several elite and everyday athletes, focus group with women all around the world and did a heap loads of wear tests to figure out what everybody needs in a workout gear, according to Jamie. “So, now we have styles that are more for the studio, for traditional training workouts and even a team-oriented tight.”
Our Editorial Assistant, Alya Zulkernai tried out the Nike Sculpt Tight and here’s her verdict.
“Before I went for the review I was browsing through the nine options they offer and I immediately wanted the Nike Sculpt Tight because it was hi-rise and I’m a sucker for anything high-waisted. I was fortunate to be given the same one when I attended the yoga session with one of Nike’s many ambassadors, Arabyrd organised by Nike Malaysia to give their Sculpt Tight a go!
“When I put on the tights I notice that my legs looked extra long and well sculpted due to its hi-rise cut and compression. This instantly boosted my confidence! Not only that but the hi-rise tights are designed in a way that it compresses the tummy area to help me strengthen my core when I do yoga poses like the planks or the headstand.
“The tights were light and I didn’t expect it to be so since it felt pretty thick when I first held it. So it gave me the freedom to move my lower-body without any constraints. Because of the power mesh at the back, it gave a bit of ventilation for me to stay cool and dry until the end.”
