With new iterations of Nike’s limitless running models dropping each year, you have to begin to wonder what makes this one so much better than the last. The aesthetic alterations are always pretty evident, but more important to that is the performance augmentations year by year dreamed up in the Innovation Kitchen on campus at Nike HQ out in Beaverton, OR. One such upgrade is the new Dynamic Fit System, an element at play in the recently debuted Nike LunarEclipse+ 2. Striving to create a second skin of sorts, Nike designers brought in artist Joanne Gair to conceptualize the project by painting the design on bare feet. From there the wrap-around fit system was created, which minimizes the space between the foot and the shoe for the ultimate fit. Follow us after the jump for a great gallery of pics.

Would not be surprised if this "Dynamic Fit" Technology makes it way on to the lebron kd and Kobe as well as other Nike basketball products as for these tho real nice and clean shoe but also advance looking as well good job Nike its about the future not the past
I wouldn't want to have a shoe painted on my foot, but i do have an understanding of the message they are trying to convey. The shoe is really nice though. She has really nice feet by the way.
The first LunarEclipse is by far the most comfortable Nike running shoe I've tried. Excited to see and feel the improvements in the latest edition.
read the title but saw the pic and thought it would be nikes answer to the five fingers and the new adidas trainer... highly disappointed
