Over the moon with the NIKE LUNARCHARGE
This futuristic design was launched in November 2016 mixing the technology from five of Nike’s iconic models and inspired in the 1990 Nike Air Current, so this means that the Nike LunarCharge is the result of twenty-seven years of design and innovation that includes pressure point testing for increased comfort in specific areas.
The key features include a neoprene upper borrowed from the 1988 classic Nike Air Flow, eye stays from the Air Max 90, early 2000 internal bootie construction from the Presto and a modern sole from 2016’s Lunarepic, and for the first time, this trainer embossed text on the midsole.
This city in style trainers have their debut at the MTV EMAs by British-rapper Tinie Tempah, and as so many brands are doing now, Nike reintroduces an older silhouette from their archives, reworking them for a modern day audience. So many brands have launched old trainers as the case of Adidas with the Superstarts.
This is a massive release for the big company, as it is a new trainer with the Lunarlon sole but outside of the running category and focused more in a city style.
