From the ground up

As the world’s best players prepare for the French Open, Nike readies the innovative footwear and apparel they will wear to make their mark. Highlighted here is Rafael Nadal’s explosively fast Nike Lunar Ballistec. The Lunar Ballistec in a men’s size 10 weighs only 13 ounces thanks to Nike Lunarlon, a technology that provides extra cushioning while keeping the shoe ultra lightweight and responsive. Nadal’s key color for Paris is “Polarized Blue,” chosen for its powerful contrast to the signature orange hue of the playing surface at Roland Garros. The Lunar Ballistec “Polarized Blue” is now available at Nike for $165 USD.
