Nike continues to push its Flyknit technology with the introduction of the new Nike Flyknit Lunar2 today. The pairing of Nike’s lightweight Flyknit upper and soft Lunarlon cushioning continues to draw in lots of people and therefore the new version of the sneaker will for sure also find its fans.

“The micro-engineered Nike Flyknit upper provides support, stretch and ventilation where needed most. Nike Flyknit construction also eliminates the need for the multiple materials and material cuts used in the uppers of traditional sport footwear manufacturing, providing a virtually seamless upper and helping reduce waste. To further boost support, Flywire cables are integrated into the upper to cradle the foot and provide a supportive lockdown.

After the success of the Flyknit Lunar1+, Nike designers engineered more stretch into the Nike Flyknit Lunar2 upper for a better fit, and attached the tongue to keep it in place. On the outsole, pressure map data helped inform a new pattern that more closely matches how the foot naturally moves through stride. Designers applied these learnings to Lunarlon foam to enhance the cushioning properties and deliver greater flexibility. The result is an even more natural stride and fluid ride, a lightweight neutral shoe built for runners from elite to beginner.”

The new Nike Flyknit Lunar2 sneaker is now available in a series of refreshing colorways for Spring 2014 through
