The Nike Air Flow first saw the light of day back 1989 with the objective of creating a lightweight, comfortable and breathable running shoe. Last months reissue of the OG Air Flow also coincided with the release of a modern take on the classic runner in the form of the Lunar Flow+. This release contains that updated modern version, this time coming in a toned down black/white make-up.
This is definitely one of the lightest and most comfortable running shoes ever produced and with Nike’s ‘Fuse’ technology being utilised on the upper and ‘Lunarlon’ outsole, the Lunar Flow+ provides all the support needed without compromising aesthetics. The tonal colour application makes this shoe look pretty subtle, but small finishing details such as the ‘Designed In Beaverton Oregon’ on the back of the tongue and the QR code on the inner soles, which by scanning with your smartphone, iPod or webcam, links to a video (via YouTube) by Nike Sportswear designers Nate VanHook & Bruce Kilgore discussing the history of the Lunar Flow, provide something to shout about on a deeper level. All in all, this release combines an astounding amount of modern performance and digital technology, while still maintaing good looks.
