Supportive Glove-Like Footwear

The Nike Flyknit Lunar 2 Shoes Offer a Plethora of Benefits

— April 16, 2014 — TH Video
Trend Hunter spoke with Joshua Graham, the Toronto EKIN, about the new Nike Flyknit Lunar 2 shoes. These terrific kicks offer a variety of exceptional features that will make anyone want to get up and exercise.

The shoes have an ultralight upper that delivers the perfect balance of support and comfort. Since the shoes are made from polyester yarn, they offer greater flexibility and tightness in areas that require more support. Flywire cables support the medial arch and the entire shoe has a cozy glove-like fit. Along with their great supporting features, the shoes also have lunarlon cushioning that provides a plush feel that you won’t get anywhere else.

Aside from these great benefits for the wearer, the manufacturing of the shoes creates little to no waste, making them efficient and eco-friendly.

These stylish and functional shoes were inspired by feedback from runners who were seeking shoes with the snugness of a sock. With an excellent team behind the development of the product, these shoes offer that comfort with a plethora of extra added benefits. The Nike Flyknit Lunar 2 shoes truly are exceptional products for professional athletes and your average sport-loving person.
