Nike unveiled its LunarEpic Flyknit running shoe in March, a silhouette inspired by its Magista soccer cleat and court shoe, featuring a collar that extends above the ankle. Today, the brand released a low-cut iteration of the shoe.
The shoe, according to the brand, was developed to be a lightweight and breathable shoe with optimal cushioning for a smooth ride that delivers a soft sensation for the runner. To achieve this, Nike employed its Lunarlon midsole cushioning, boasting precision-lasered cuts on the sides that compress when the foot strikes the ground, giving the runner a smooth heel-to-toe transition. It also features a flexible and breathable Flyknit upper designed to provide a fit like a second skin.
The shoe will debut in one colorway for men (racer blue, photo blue, blue glow and white) and two colorways for women (black, dark purple dust, and white; and pink blast, clear jade, hyper turquoise and white).
