It’s no secret that Nike has had success with many of its lifestyle sneakers.
So it makes sense that the brand drew from several favorite iconic pairs as inspiration for the latest one: the LunarCharge. Nike jumped all the way back to the Air Flow style from 1988, resurfacing the neoprene material used on that shoe. The brand also borrowed elements from other shoes through the years, including the Air Max 90, Air Current, Air Presto and LunarEpic.
Nike looked to pressure-point testing to increase comfort in specific areas of the foot and included LunarEpic cushioning, making this its only lifestyle shoe with that running shoe technology.
The first colorway, which features a dark gray neoprene upper with a knitted toe box area and black-and-white speckled accents on the side, will drop Nov. 18 at select retailers.
