Developed by the aerospace industry, Lunarlite foam was adapted by Nike for running. The process took more than four years, but you could easily say the LunarTrainer was more than 30 years in the making. Lunarlite foam got its start when Nike designer Kevin Hoffer wanted to create a cushioning system as revolutionary as Bill Bowerman’s original Waffle sole. Perfecting the outsole required many iterations to work out the proper balance with the Lunarlite foam material. The initial outsole and midsole systems were wide, almost exaggerated to compensate for people’s perceptions of cushioning that light. The design team narrowed it down until they found the perfect ratio of size and stability. This Paradigm-shifting technology is behind the new Nike Lunar Trainer+ Men’s Running Shoe, an excellent lightweight, responsive sneaker with superior cushioning. Three colorways of the Lunar Trainer+ are now available at Nikestore.com. Available now at Nikestore.
Colors: White/Black-Volt-Metallic Silver
