Focused on delivering lighter, faster and better products for its athletes, Nike Tennis constructed the Lunar Ballistec from synthetic leather and mesh to reduce weight while providing a supportive fit for the player. Dynamic Nike Flywire technology wraps the midfoot and arch for an adaptive and glove-like fit that is customizable using the lacing system of the shoe. The Lunarlon midsole is full-length and crafted especially for tennis footwear, the material features a soft foam core encased within a proprietary foam carrier for ultra-plush cushioning, springy response and real support. A TPU midfoot shank delivers great stability during the quick directional changes and sprints often seen during play. Additionally, outrigger technology on the lateral side of the shoe enhances launch for quick sprints across the court and flex grooves deliver better articulation and flexibility to allow the foot to move more naturally. The Nike Lunar Ballistec launches globally at Nike beginning January 2, 2014.
