NIKE FLYKNIT LUNAR1+
LAUNCHED ON: February 14, 2013
The Nike Flyknit Racer, one of the first two Nike Flyknit running shoes, turned more than a few heads when it debuted on the feet of elite runners competing—and dominating—on the world stage last summer. The new Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ ($160), available in men’s and women’s sizes, offers runners lacing up in preparation for the spring racing season the benefits of that shoe, with a noteworthy cushioning update.
Runners, and especially those who race, need a shoe that fits perfectly, with enough structure for support and the right cushioning for lasting comfort—good looks don’t hurt either. The Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ delivers on all of this. Like its predecessors, it features an ultra-light knit upper that fits like a second skin and offers breathability, stretch and support where you need it. Flywire cables on the upper enhance support for a locked-down feel. (Customize them through the laces for personalized support.)
The big news with this version of the Nike Flyknit is the addition of Lunarlon cushioning for a soft, responsive ride—which you’ll appreciate more and more with each passing mile between you and the finish line.
