Even if you’ve been living under a rock (and if you are, it might be time to see what other housing alternatives are available in your community), Nike has likely found you and let you know about the introduction of the Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ running shoe (now available at Running Warehouse). We first heard about this shoe, known then as the Nike Flyknit One, back in December 2012, and the finished product looks like one sweet ride.
Is Flyknit for You?
Flyknit technology is just a few months old, being first used on the Flyknit Racer and Flyknit Trainer models last Fall. There are three big benefits to Flyknit:
- It provides a snug, customized fit, thanks to a variable-density weave that provides structure right where you need it.
- It allows for a supremely lightweight shoe, because no overlays are needed.
- It greatly reduces waste during the manufacturing process, with Nike claiming just a few threads are left over following construction.
The magic really starts happening when you attach this innovative upper to the pillow-soft Lunar platform. Together, you have a customized, sock-like fit along with a well-cushioned, lightweight platform that’s ready to rack up the miles. Is the Flyknit Lunar1+ the best of both worlds? That’s for you to decide – once you come out from under that rock.
