Pushing the boundaries of their much lauded cushioning system, that clever lot over at Beaverton’s Innovation Kitchen have explored just how effective Lunarlon can be with with the latest vehicle for this celebrated bit of tech, the Nike LunarGlide 6.
Inspired by the weightlessness cushioning of astronauts on the Moon, Lunarlon debuted 6 years ago and has appeared across a variety of silhouettes, delivering a plush responsive ride every time.
The LunarGlide 6 picks up right where they left off, building on the dual density Dynamic Support midsole with a combination of re-engineered Lunarlon and firm Phylon providing a smooth and stable transition across the foot.
Informed by the insights of runners, the sixth iteration of this modern classic is kitted out with a Pressure-Mapped outsole, mimicking the natural movement of the foot and providing support where you need it, from take-off to landing.
Building on this radically redesigned sole unit, the uppers were stripped back, utilising a engineered foam upper with a breathable design that fits like a glove and enhances natural motion.
Finishing things off with some of the performance footwear industry’s most effective technology, integrated Flywire support hugs the foot for an adaptive fit and a good old fashioned heel cage provides snug, comfortable lockdown.
Online now, head over to the Nike section to take a look at some genuinely cutting edge performance design.
