Nike already applied the Shield Collection touch to the usual suspects for a new pack of weather-proof runners for the holiday season, and now we see the Swoosh take stock of the fact that the sky nastiness will continue for several more months and we want more color options. Enter the ‘Bright Crimson’ Shield Collection, an accomplished quartet of cutting-edge running models whose coloring is roughly reversed from the above mentioned HO12 drops, opting for red up top and a soft grey midsole to match the Vintage Box-ish tongue tag. The Nike LunarGlide+ 4 joins the LunarEclipse+ 2, Pegasus+ 29 and WMNS Free Run+ 3 in this style you can see in more detail after the jump, then find yours available now at NikeStore.

The Air Max 2012 is set to come through with a bold look layering red and neon sections for what’s probably it’s most eye-catching look so far, and from the looks of the model pictured above, we can expect that bold combo on a variety of Nike Running’s top tier releases. The new Nike LunarEclipse+ 2is something like LunarLon’s answer to the annual Air Max flagship series, this premium Lunar-cushioned design among the lightest and most comfortable runners you’ll find on the market today, thanks to an upper cast in synthetics including a huge swath of mesh across the forefoot. There’s also a white pair whose blue tongue and lining are a more familiar match with the neon accents, a colorway that’s so springy just looking at it can raise your body temperature by a couple degrees. The best way to get a jump on New Year’s resolutions is to get started before everyone else, and why not add running to your get-fit-for-spring regime now that the LunarEclipse 2 is available at FinishLine.

The Nike LunarEclipse+ ‘eclipsed’ prices of all Nike Lunar Running shoes by a whopping $35 (the highest-priced Lunar running shoe was $100), and still stands as the highest-priced Nike Lunar running shoe (if you’re not counting the Shield edition of the model, which is $140). Supreme comfort, sick styling – many fans of Nike running shoes deemed it money well spent, so how will its sequel be received? Here’s a look at the Nike LunarEclipse+ 2, previewed at the nike Running House Warming event in late October; it features the same LunarLon cushinoing with the seamless mesh/thin-skin upper, but now features the light-weight mid-foot lockdown harness seen in many current Nike releases, like the LunarGlide+3 and even the LeBron 9. These three colorways were part of that impressive preview, so take a look below and let us know what you think the LunarEclipse+ 2 design, and stick with Sneaker News for release updates. via p4000.
