Designers draw inspiration from astronauts’ weightless walks on the moon for new footwear collection.
Dedicated to developing the most innovative athletic products in the world, Nike unveils the Nike Lunarlon Collection: a performance-enhancing range of men’s and women’s training, running and basketball shoes. The creative process began with a collaboration between the Nike design team and the Nike Sports Research Lab (NSRL) conducting pressure platform tests on runners, the team isolated key impact points on the foot.
Additional design inspiration came from observing astronauts walking on the moon. This weightlessness is exactly what Nike strove to capture with its revolutionary cushioning system.
Introduced four years ago, the resulting Nike Lunarlon foam technology achieves this aim by spreading force out more evenly across the foot, providing ultra-lightweight and springy cushioning that helps protect the foot while improving stability and comfort for an enhanced running and workout experience.
30% lighter than standard phylon foam, Lunarlon cushioning is featured across the Nike Lunarlon Collection, featuring sport specific shoes with more Nike Lunarlon foam than ever for a more comfortable and adaptive fit.
Nike’s dynamic flywire provides adaptive support that loosens and tightens with the natural motion of the foot, providing a glove like fit depending on your sports activity.
The Nike Lunarlon Collection includes: the Nike Lunarglide +4, Nike Hyperdunk, Nike LunarTR1 and Nike Lunar HyperWorkout+.
Nike Lunarglide+4Ultra lightweight and responsive, the Nike Lunarglide+4 is lighter than the Nike Lunarglide+3 and helps to maximize performance thanks to soft, springy Lunarlon cushioning and dynamic flywire.
Nike HyperdunkDesigned to meet the containment, protection and responsive needs of elite players the Nike Hyperdunk (11.9 oz) features basketball-specific Lunarlon cushioning and dynamic Flywire for hard cuts and turns. Learn more about the Nike Hyperdunk.
Nike LunarTR1Superior cushioning, ultra lightweight (10% lighter than the TR1.3 at 11.4oz) and breathable make the Nike LunarTR1 more versatile for training across multiple sports. Flywire provides dynamic support for multidirectional movement whatever your workout.
