The Nike Lunarepic Flyknit was one of the shoes that was unveiled a few months ago at Nike’s Innovation Summit. We were told at the Summit that the Lunarepic Flyknit would eventually come in a lowtop as well. That time is now, and the Nike Lunarepic Low Flyknit releases very soon — as in tomorrow.
The Nike Lunarepic Low Flyknit takes all of the performance aspects seen in the high top version but cuts the collar down to the ankle. The shoe features a full Flyknit upper for the lightweight feel and breathability needed for running. Underfoot is where it is a bit different than your typical runner. Lunarlon pods are found directly underneath your foot and act as a part of the outsole. The midsole has laser cut areas that help the Lunarlon pods absorb impact while running that also help maximize the responsiveness of the Lunarlon. The outsole and midsole are one piece and feature a traction pattern similar to the pressure mapping pattern that we saw on the Nike Kobe 9.
