They may not garner the big dollar drops and hyped promotional events, but tennis shoes have always been a key driver in sneaker design. With their streamlined approach, technical builds, and uncanny style, the club-friendly sport kicks have slowly made their way onto the streets and this latest from Nike, the Lunar Ballistec is one of the most original silo's with a Swoosh. The elongated forefoot Swoosh immediately catches your eye in KD VI fashion, but its the durability, support, and cushioning the Nike designers packed inside that will get you to that little fuzzy ball faster - assuming you actually don them for a game of tennis. Despite all this proprietary technology, including the Lunarlon sole and Flywire, this synthetic leather and mesh joint only weighs in at 13 ounces. The Nike Lunar Ballistec launches today, January 2, at Nike.com and at select retailers worldwide.
