Aside from the just minted Gyakusou International Running Association (GIRA) with Jun Takahashi of UNDERCOVER, Nike tapped into another divergent running sport, ekiden. Along with Loopwheeler, Nike designed 2 raglan style sweatshirt, with Loopwheeler’s signature supple cotton jersey fabric. Embroider with numerals, essential to keep track of runners from afar, in contrast color tone. For those who never heard of ekiden, its a derivative of horse messenger race over century ago (think of the Pony Express in the old American West). Now without the horses, its essentially a relay race but of a greater distance, some up to 219 kilometers (136 miles). The Loopwheeler x Nike Sportswear Ekiden Sweatshirts are now available on NikeStore.com and select stores with Nike Sportswear account.
