Like Apple, Nike keeps building upon their innovative sneaker technologies to provide consumers with the best shoes possible. Last year, their Flyknit Lunar 1+ wowed runners by providing them unprecedented strength and support in such a lightweight shoe and now they’ve built on that success with the new Lunar2 model.
The new model pairs the powerful and ultra light Nike Flyknit upper with the super soft and responsive Nike Lunarlon cushioning, which is a “magical combination,” according to Rob Dolan, Senior Design Director of Nike Running. The shoe also has more stretch than the previous model for a better fit and attached the tongue to keep it in place. The micro-engineered Flyknit upper provides support, stretch and ventilation where it’s needed most, while Flywire cables are integrated into the upper to cradle the foot and provide runners with a supportive lockdown.
Designers used pressure mad data to help design the outsole to provide runners with more natural strides, great for elite to beginner runners. The Nike Flyknit Lunar2 can now be customized to your personal likings with NIKEiD at Nike.com, while men’s volt/white-blue glow and women’s atomic orange/white-purple colorways will be available for purchase at Nike.com on February 6.
