For Nike, innovation is at the heart of athletic performance; at the same time, the brand recognizes the emerging importance of innovation in the lifestyle segment, where comfort, protection and visibility are equally at play. Consequently, the Nike Sportswear Footwear Design Team has created a quartet of Lunar Icons — four classic Nike styles updated with Nike Lunarlon. The kicks take the form of the Nike Lunar Cheyenne, featuring a simple suede design modeled after Nike’s first soccer boot; the Nike Lunar Force 1, in which the iconic Air Force 1 is retooled with a Lunarlon sole unit; Nike Lunar LDV Trail Low, built with a ballistic mesh upper and based on the 1978 long-distance running shoe; and the Nike Lunar Blazer, which replaces a traditional rubber cupsole with Lunarlon cushioning. Look for the Nike Lunar Icons to launch at select Nike Sportswear retailers starting July 1st.
