White is certainly the “new black” this season. The colorway dominates the range of collections, from Nike‘s Chinese Olympic athletes inspired Breakthrough Pack, the more recent Euro Champ Pack (see post below), even as the majority colorway on the Converse 1HUND(RED) collection. In addition to its 2 Warrior Windrunner jackets, in black and “Anthracite”, a very dark gray. Nike released an all white version to the “Road to Beijing” series. Similar to the 2 previous jackets, it is also called “The Warrior”. And like the other 2, it has a vertical zipper on both the front and rear panes, which allows the wearer to unzip the jacket in half and interchange with another. Plus, waterproof zip-pockets (similar to those on the Tech Pack), with violet/white gradients designs.
An unique aspect of the Nike Warrior Windrunner is the material. Instead of the usual smooth nylon shell found on most other Nike Windrunner, the Nike Warrior Windrunner Jackets are made with a more rigid nylon shell, imprinted with round, fish scales-like pattern. Very close to those found on the Nike Sphere apparel line. Finished with embroidered lining, in white, with “080808 Beijing”, signify August 8, 2008 – the opening day of Beijing Summer Olympics.
