Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 – First Look

I’m sure you are all familiar with the Nike Flyknit lunar series, designed for maximum comfort. But Nike is taking a step forward with the third installment, the Flyknit Lunar 3.

The Flyknit on the upper is taking a note from the Air Jordan XX9, with the same idea of tighter knits in certain areas that support is needed. The only difference is that this is not performance woven… or at least not yet! (Please Nike + JB!)

As far as other upgrades, runners who need more cushion or support will be pleased with the additional Lunarlon enhancements. The midsole and outsole feature a new layout of the Lunar foam, providing a much more well-cushioned and plush experience.

No word on a men’s release date yet (although you can check out a sneak peek of two colorways HERE) but the women’s colorway seen below can be purchased on February 12, 2015. Let us know your thoughts: cop, or drop? Stay tuned to WearTesters for more sneaker news, and all your performance information!

  1. SMH…Nike cmon!…Why not use this kinda Flynit pattern on these Kobe 9s? maximize the Flynit potentional 4pete sake! UGH!

    1. Playing basketball in flyknit alone would probably have drastic structural problems. Running in flyknit is simple, you run forwards and may change dirtections to get around an obstacle every now and again. Basketball shoes (especially the uppers) undergo forces from fast bursts, constant running up and down the court, pivoting, (all of the typical movements while playing), which are much more demanding than what running shoes go through. I’m not trying to call you out on anything, but this, along with a lot of your posts on niketalk are highly illogical or ignorant to obvious facts.
