Nike’s Spike Night Event At The Olympic Trials Was Badass

Nike let us play in some of the shoes that will grace the feet of Olympians in Rio at their spike night event on the track. Peep the photos.

If there’s anyone who can make you feel like you’re one of the pros, it’s Nike. And “spike night” at Hayward Field—aka letting us common folk run around the same oval as future Olympians—during the Olympic Trials was no exception. Runners got to test out the very spikes that will grace the feet of Nike’s athletes headed to Rio, from the sprints to the middle-distance events. Oh, and there was an actual speed workout too. Check out some of the photos from the night, and tell us you don’t want those shoes (we totally wanted to keep them). Photos: Courtesy of Nike
