Nike Running changed the way we think about Lunarlon technology with the Nike Lunar Kaki Avis Flyknit. The revamped cushion system worked wonders for cross-training, distance running, and was stylish enough to wear even casually. Now the Swoosh is back with a minor change that makes a major difference in the aesthetic deapartment with the Nike LunarEpic Flyknit Shield.
The Nike Lunar Force 1 Flyknit “Flax” ditches the patented air technology found in Bruce Kilgore’s iconic basketball model for a sleeker Lunarlon finish, but what will really grab your attention here is the combination of a premium Flax nubuck paired with a matching Wheat Flyknit on the side panels. It’s a new take on the old Nike Sportswear “Wheat” aesthetic, and one that will cost you upwards of $200 USD to rock. The mid-top construction features matching nubuck ankle straps with embossed Swoosh branding and a rugged gum outsole tooling to help you survive the colder months ahead.
It wasn’t really a hit sneaker, but you may remember the Nike Lunar Acheter 306, a unique laceless Lunarlon cushioned silhouette from Nike Sportswear that first released in 2013 and stayed in production of r about a year. If you are among those that remember the shoe, this new adidas sneaker may seem a bit familiar. It could be just a coincidence, but the Cloudfoam Ultra Zen does seem to share some similarities to the Lunarfly, specifically the laceless design with bold branding across the midfoot strap. The only question is, does the Cloudfoam or Lunarlon feel better?
The Nike Lunar Noir Moins Cher Shield takes the Flyknit woven upper and adds a protective shield overlay in a head-turning reflective Metallic Silver. The overall debut colorway is rather reminiscient of the Oregon Ducks’ always changing football uniforms given the black woven base and hints of Volt on the Dynamic Flywire and Lunarlon bottom. This particular pair will a women’s exclusive but we’re sure other renditions will follow throughout Fall/Winter 2016.
Flyknit and Flax? The two might seem like they’re at opposite ends of the Nike Sportswear spectrum – one has a tendency to make Nike classics look like Timberland boots, and the other is rooted in performance running technology for a flexible and stylish ride. The two are actually coming together on the Nike Lunar En Soldes “Flax”, a premium take on the Nike Air Force 1 boot inspiration that we’ve been seeing for the past three or so Fall/Winter seasons from the Swoosh.
