When Nike’s R&D department unveiled the LunarEpic Flyknit earlier this year, which uses the same tall, sock-like upper as 2014’s Magista football boot, the model was dubbed a revolution in running shoes.
Blame ‘athleisure’ if you will, but it was only a matter of time before sneakerheads began crying out for a way to wear LunarEpic’s casually. Answering the call of those who want the style without the burden of exercise, Nike has dropped the sock in favour of a more traditional shape for its latest launch, leaving us with the LunarEpic Low Flyknit.
Don’t be mistaken, the modified edition is no less innovative. It features the same second-skin Flyknit construction, laser-cut Lunarlon midsole and pressure-mapped outsole. However, the trainer is packaged in a more everyday wearable style, across two blue colourways.
Which means you can all go back to just paying for a gym membership, rather than actually using it.
The LunarEpic Low Flyknit will be available at Nike from 30 June, priced £120.
