Nike launches today (March 3rd) a completely new running shoe: the LunarEpic Flyknit.
It takes inspiration from the Magista soccer boot that came out last year.
The Nike LunarEpic Flyknit has 3 traits that differentiate them from anything else we have seen:
- a Flyknit upper that wraps the ankle up to mid-height;
- a new dual-injection midsole that uses heat instead of glue to fuse together two different foams;
- a rubber-free outsole with laser-siped geometric pistons inspired by pressure maps of the foot.
Here’s some of the original concept sketches:
And finally, a gallery of all the pictures we were given. Stay tuned – we plan to review these new funky boots as soon as possible!
