For years, Nike Running has changed the game in performance running dating back to its roots in the 1970’s. The Nike LunarEclipse+ takes the advancements of recent technologies Nike has developed and brings them together for the ultimate running shoe.
Built on a Dynamic Support bas, the Nike LunarEclipse+ provides the runner with the ultimate cushioning from the soft inner foam combined with the stability of a denser foam. Cupping the two foams together achieves the ultimate dilema in running shoes – shoes with good support rarely had soft cushioning and shoes with good cushioning usually lacked ultimate support. For the Nike LunarEclipse+, Nike took things even further by cutting away much of the sole in the forefoot to provide 33% more of the carrier foam under the ball of the foot. This design is referred to as Bottomless Carrier Construction. In addition to a softer forefoot, the shoe also cuts away heavier foam and outsole rubber reducing weight and provides more flexibility where the runner needs it most.
The LunarEclipse+ features some of the best heel support ever offered by a running shoe thanks to a floating heel support clip. This clip attaches to the soft, carrier foam and extends past the midsole locking the support clip to the chasis of the shoe rather than just the midsole. Inside the Nike Lunar Eclipse you will also fine a molded heel support cup on the insole made from denser foam as well as additional Flywire construction on the upper.
To provide 360 degrees of comfort, Nike created a construction process for the upper of the Lunar Eclipse that is completely seamless inside and out. On the women’s version of the Nike LunarEclipse Nike also changed the way the tongue is stitched so that there would be no tongue rub on the runner’s ankle.
The Nike LunarEclipse+ is currently available at specialty running stores as well as online at NikeStore with a retail price of $130. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for more updates about the Nike LunarEclipse+ and all other Nike running shoes.
