Technologies Combined To Create Lightest Air Max Yet
Sports giant Nike has combined two of its cushioning technologies to create what it claims to be the lightest Air Max trainer to date.
The Lunar1 model comes almost three decades after the style first debuted in 1987, making use of both Air and Lunarlon features.
The trainer is no longer made from individual panels, thanks to a no-sew construction, but retains the recognisable silhouette of past versions such as the Air Max Light, 90 and recent Flyknit.
Breathable mesh panels add to the lightweight make-up, sat on top of a responsive foam sole.
Three colour ways are currently available online. A neon green, grey, black and white mix sits alongside a white, black, silver and blue design, both finished with a flecked sole.
A third, in white, red and grey, has been produced to look like classic models in the Air Max family.
Nike has created a video to go alongside the launch, which showcases the darker palette.
A statement from the brand said: “Traditional Air Max technology partnered with innovative Nike Lunarlon foam creates a new feel for an iconic form.”
The Nike Air Max Lunar1 is available to buy now from Nike.com and select Nike Sportswear retailers, priced at £105.
