Nike presents yet another interesting and innovative running shoe, that fuses some of their newest technologies into a nice looking piece of footwear – the Nike LunarEclipse+.
“Expanding on the possibilities of the LunarGlide+, the Eclipse is a new flagship for this division of the brand (arguably—given Nike’s origins—the most important division too), and it didn’t disappoint.
Flywire and that no-sew paneling is pushed to the limit here, with some shades of grey and black on the upper. The vast silver heel swoosh isn’t subtle, but it’s an eyecatcher—the branding on Spring’s pieces really goes all out in that department, nodding to some ‘97 Zoom spirit. In terms of colours, that mix of the madcap and muted is repeated on upcoming trend pieces like Wildwood reduxes and duck boot reworkings, while sticking with the lineage of the original Lunar Racer. Where sturdier versions of that shoe came off clumsy, two years on, they’ve sussed a solution.”
