There’s been a lot of buzz around this shoe, the Nike Lunar Trainers, even if it isn’t out in the market yet. There was the Nike Lunar Test Run we had last August. And I read about Runwitme‘s similar experience in Malaysia. Plus, Jeannette Wang‘s positive experience using it when she won the Singapore Sundown Ultramarathon (84km) with a time of 9.5 hours.
The Lunar Trainers are set for a limited release this October 2008—meaning the distribution of this shoe is not massive and not a on a wide scale like other Nike shoes—while bulk of these will go on full blast in early 2009.
For those of you who would like to reserve a pair of Lunars (retails at P4,995), below are the contact numbers of Nike outlets. Nike says there are only 18 pairs each for men and women per outlet, except at Nike Bonifacio High Street where there are 30 pairs for men and 18 for women:
