While the Nike brand we know and love is one of Air Force 1s, Flyknits and other such hysteria-inducing sneakers, it's easy to forget that the sportswear leviathan is a manufacturer and innovator in the athletic apparel market first and foremost. Their latest concoction, dubbed "Hyperwarm Flex" (only a matter of time before someone starts rapping under that alias) responds to the need for athletes to have protection, flexibility and comfort in cold climates.

A top and pant have been crafted using cutting edge knitted technology, and boast a mixed, paneled construction that utilizes different technologies for each area's requirements - namely flexible articulation, thermal insulation and Dri-FIT moisture wicking, for what the brand believe to be "the finest base layer Nike has ever made." Aesthetically speaking, the base layers look like they have been lifted straight out of a sci-fi/superhero movie and it'd be a brave soul to don them in a lifestyle context, so this one's strictly for the sportier Snobs out there. Both top and pant are available now via Nike.com.
