The latest LunarSpider takes its name literally with a web of Dynamic Flywire across the upper, so it’s only natural to see this lightweight runner treated to an animal pattern. The Nike LunarSpider+ R4 is the latest in a line of popular Asia-only lightweight Lunar runners, and this rendition reflects the Far East’s early adoption of the wild prints that’ve become all the rage here in the US. The LunarSpider series occasionally arrives at Euro retailers but hasn’t yet arrived stateside, so keep your eyes peeled for availability on these leopard print colorways and stick with Sneaker News for the latest.

Leopard print has become such a ubiquitous design option that we’re beginning to see it on more than just the NSW footwear releases, but the strict running models like the Nike LunarSpider R4.

Do you like seeing these types of prints on performance models, or would you prefer them to stay on streetwear styles?
