One can look back to Nike Sportswear’s 2010 Athletics Far East capsule as a turning point where the earliest foreshadowing of today’s trend toward patterned designs met with subtle monochromatic palettes. And today we have a new trio of Japanese runners keeping the theme alive with some more traditional concealment patterns on three of the Swoosh’s most advanced Lunar foam-cushioned runners. The Nike LunarSpider R3, LT+ 2 and LunarSpeed Lite+ are all sleek LunarLon speedsters and they’re unified by the use of neutral camo uppers plus black branding and support structures. The original Lunarspider came through with a couple AFE-ish drops in early ’11, and you can let us know which silo/colors did it better after you’ve seen more of this new pack below.
