What started with college jerseys is making its way to the pro ranks slowly but surely, and it gets you thinking: if the top footwear brands can influence these cultural institutions’ aesthetics, how much further might they continue? Is it possible that one day we might see a special edition Chicago city flag in neon? Nike Running gives us just that look on this new Nike LunarGlide+ 5 created for the Chicago Marathon. It appears to be a Shield makeup with Engineering Mesh’s graphical capabilities left at the wayside in favor of an all neon and black build including the Windy City’s famed four stars on the tongue. Stick with Sneaker News to see what becomes of these and let us know where these would finish in a race against other recent marathon-commemorating designs.
