Nike introduces Nike Flyknit Lunar 3, the third generation of its popular Flyknit running shoes, in which they say “impossibly light and incredibly strong marries soft and responsive.” Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 pairs plush Lunarlon cushioning with an incredibly light and strong Flyknit upper that is breathable, flexible and supportive all at once.
“The Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 is the formula for the perfect run with an ultra-light supportive fit combined with soft, responsive Lunarlon cushioning that gives runners a plush feel through the entire run,” says Rob Williams, Senior Design Director of Running Footwear.
If that doesn’t excite you about this shoe, dear runners, then I don’t know what else will. Below are the improvements made on the Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 according to Nike:
+ An evolved Flyknit upper with a tighter knit structure in the heel for support and more open knit in the forefoot for increased breathability and stretch.
+ Contoured, locked-down fit with an integrated tongue that stays in place and a plush collar for comfort.
+ A reformulated Lunarlon midsole and solid rubber outsole informed by pressure-mapping data to provide a soft and responsive ride.
Flyknit innovation enables designers to micro-engineer every stitch of the upper and eliminates the need to use multiple materials common in traditional sports footwear manufacturing. This yields a lighter, virtually seamless upper for the runner and reduced waste in manufacturing.
For even more support, Flywire cables are integrated with Flyknit to cradle the foot and provide a personalized, secure fit. The formfitting upper is so light, runners will barely know it’s there.
A reformulated Lunarlon midsole delivers a lighter, more responsive and supportive ride from the cushioning runners have grown to love and expect from Lunarlon. On the outsole, pressure map data informed a pattern that more closely matches how the foot moves as it strides. Designers applied these insights to the rubber outsole that provides a smooth transition from heel strike through toe-off. The result is a lightweight neutral shoe with an even more natural stride and cushioned fluid ride.
