When Nike’s Lunar foam debuted back around the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the original Lunar Racer and Trainer stood out against the entire crowd of Zoom and Max Air-cushioned runners that came before it (as well as all the other brands’ output). Especially on the Trainer, the sole was conspicuously wider than its upper and with the bottom in all-neon, you simply couldn’t miss them. Fast forward to the next Olympic summer and the Hyperdunk series that also debuted in ’08 finally crosses paths with Lunar cushioning, this Nike Lunar Hyperdunk+ also exactly the kind of thing that you can’t even pretend not to see. These have an Oregon football vibe about them thanks to the Gorge Green accents on this otherwise Volt design, but instead of a duck as one of the insole’s icons, there’s a jackrabbit denoting ‘SPEED’. Click through to see the other two that mark this pair’s footbed as well as a host of other details and stick with Sneaker News to find out when the first Lunar Hyperdunk release date goes down.

It looks like the hyper dunk 2011 ate the crazy light 2, and mutated into this. I just hope it performs.
