A year on, Nike’s Flyknit technology continues to permeate the company’s running shoe line. Today Nike announced the Flyknit Lunar1+, an ultra lightweight, all-purpose runner that combines a Flyknit upper with a cushy Lunarlon bottom.
By combining the two technologies, the Flyknit Lunar1+ is probably the most responsive and comfortable running shoe. See, the Flywire tech in the upper flexes and tightens to accommodate the natural movements of the foot, while the Lunarlon bottom offers greater response and a pillow-like ride. The shoe’s platform is neutral, so it’ll probably work for you if you don’t pronate too much.
And, according to Nike, the use of Flyknit tech cuts down on waste by about 80 per cent compared to other running shoes in the line. The Flyknit Lunar1+ drop next month in a variety of colours. No word on price. [Nike]
