Nike Sportswear Lunar Orbit+

By - December 16th, 2010

A lineage that went far back as the Nike Zvezdochka by Marc Newson, the Nike Lunar Orbit+ pushes the both traditional craftsmanship and techo-centric minimalist design. With the original Nike Tech Pack as inspiration, former wetsuit designer Nate VanHook literally built an aerial vehicle the Lunar Orbit+ geometric upper, with its offset zip enclosure and 3-layer mesh, actually increase air flow over the shoe. Thus, creating lift and minimize surface contact. A few aesthetic hint to the tech that went into this shoe, from lasered sockliner, reflective seams to the GPS coordinates etched along the asymmetric zip enclosure.
