Runners lacing up in preparation for the spring race season won’t make sacrifices. They need a shoe that fits perfectly to take on the miles, has enough structure to feel supportive, offers cushioning for amazing comfort – and sports some style on top of all that. With this inspiration, the lightweight Nike Flyknit One+ brings the virtually seamless upper using Nike Flyknit technology together with the plush, responsive cushioning of Lunarlon.
Since its launch in February 2012, Nike Flyknit technology has redefined the development and creation of footwear with its ability to be engineered to provide a precision fit for the specific needs of the foot, helping the shoe to adapt to the foot in motion. Support and structure are knitted right into the material, which helps eliminate seams, weight and areas of friction and keeps the shoe lightweight. This spring Nike Flyknit One+ provides support, flexibility and breathability with a more cushioned lower, great for everyday runners.
The Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ combines Nike Flyknit with super plush, responsive Lunarlon – lightweight cushioning inspired by images of astronauts and their near-weightless walking on the moon. The resilient foam provides ultra-soft cushioning, and springy response and support. The Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ has a neutral platform that benefits a wide array of runners looking for a fast, responsive and well-cushioned shoe. Strategically-placed durable rubber inserts in the bottomless carrier deliver maximum impact protection in key areas on the heel and forefoot. It incorporates dynamic Nike Flywire, adaptive support that tightens and relaxes to accommodate the natural motion of the foot.
Like its predecessors, the Nike Flyknit Racer and Nike Flyknit Trainer, the upper of the Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ is created without the need for cutting, thereby reducing waste. The one-piece upper does not use the multiple materials and material cuts used in traditional sports footwear manufacture.
Nike Flyknit is known for its elite performance as well as style, with its zonal performance knitted patterns offering a stylistic take on footwear. Elite marathon runners have crossed the finish line in the Nike Flyknit Racer, part of the first Nike Flyknit collection. The Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ expands the franchise, offering a bright color palette to make sure runners look as great as they feel on the road.
The Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ will be available in stores from February 2013.
