But the 2018 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist didn’t choose the new Puma Nitro Deviate solely for speed, rather its exceptionally unique design.
“For me personally, high-quality shoes have been a big part of my athlete journey in staying uninjured and progressing,” she says. “The newest shoes [i’ve added] to my collection are the PUMA Nitro shoes which have a sole formed to correct my foot position whilst running. Wearing them makes me look forward to training each day!”
Designed as a daily trainer to make your longer runs a whole lot easier, the Nitro Deviate holds your foot in elevated comfort while keeping performance paramount.
Highly cushioned yet lightweight, this shoe has a soft but stable underfoot giving you exceptional push off with a bouncy, soft landing on each and every step. Its flexible plate drives you forward during toe-off while improving energy return every time.
The aesthetically engineered low boot silhouette features a distinct outsole grip, breathable mesh upper plus reflective branding and spoiler for safer, all-hours high visibility.
It’s a shoe built to make running easier, even on your hardest days.
“When I don’t feel like training I remember that emotions don’t dictate what I do, my intentions and mindset does,” reveals Nicola. “Some days it’s just showing up and getting the training session done, knowing that nothing will be wasted. I also hold on to my ‘why’ when I run - when I have a strong purpose behind my training, nothing gets in the way [in me] completing the sessions.”
Just slipping on this innovative running shoe will remind you why you wanted to run in the first place.
“I run because I love the freedom and feeling of running,” reveals Nicola. “The places I am able to run in Australia are incredible, and with this gift, I’ve been blessed to travel the world with it. I keep running to share that nothing is impossible to the one who believes!”
