Nike is a brand that prides itself on innovative discoveries and the successive evolution of said finds. Flyknit, which debuted in early 2012, has the Beaverton brand excited like never before, with a countless number of silhouettes releasing since the first Flyknit Trainer and Racer models were released to the public in July. Since then, we’ve seen the woven material be applied to several categories across the board, but it’s the original Running sector that really gets our juices flowing. Later in 2013 after the release of the Trainer and Racer, Nike introduced the Flyknit Lunar1, combining a Flyknit upper with a Lunarlon outsole that was originally seen on the LunarGlide+ 4. After receiving numerous awards from sport-focused circles and getting the coveted “co-sign” from sneakerheads dying for a new look, the Lunar-based Flyknit model will finally see a sequel that may one-up its predecessor.
Today, Sneaker News offers you an exclusive detailed look at the all-new Nike Flyknit Lunar2 in the men’s Vivid Blue/Volt and women’s Atomic Orange Purple colorway. Bringing together two of Nike’s most heralded technologies in Flyknit and Lunar, the Flyknit Lunar2 offers even more lightweight advantages and uncompromised support, adding in even more stretch capabilities and a tongue attached to the collar to keep it in place during use (anyone who rocks Flyknit runners knows that this upgrade is a very welcome addition). The outsole design takes after pressure map data, with traction arrangements tailor-made for the run. All in all, the Flyknit Lunar2 is lighter, faster, and stronger than the original, suitable for runners of all types, and we have an exclusive, detailed look at a sneaker that will surely be a highlight of 2014.
The Nike Flyknit Lunar2 will release on February 6th with an MSRP of $160. The NIKEiD Flyknit Lunar2 will be available on January 19th.
