- Nike Dri-Fit sleeveless shirt for Dh99, jogging pants for Dh205 and trainers for Dh365.
The Dubai Marathon is just a day away, and if you're one of those who have been using the malls as your personal track and field, I'm impressed.
Nike has gone all out with its store-wide sale across Dubai for those who want to shop and sprint in style. The prices are usually on the upper end of the scale on normal days, so it's not a bad idea to save up for sale season like now. For the ensemble above: Dri-Fit sleeveless shirt for Dh99, jogging pants for Dh205 and trainers for Dh365. Check, check, check.
Dress up like Gebreselassie
You might also want to rummage through Adidas' sale racks so you can dress up like Gebreselassie right through the finish line. I found jogging pants for Dh155 (they were Dh225), a pair of trainers for Dh260 (was Dh345), running shoes for Dh225 (was Dh375) and the Adidas bag below for Dh95 so you can stash them all in there after the marathon.
If you're looking for something more affordable, Reebok is offering mostly 50 per cent off prices in its store-wide sale across Dubai. I found a Dri-Fit top and a sports bag for half the price at Dh75 each, a sweater for Dh125 and these running shoes for Dh175 (was Dh345).
