The best innovation comes when you take a second to look at what you’ve already done, break it down to its constituent parts, and find a way to re-assemble it in a new and better way. By the looks of it, this is exactly how Nike’s newest sneaker silhouette, the LunarCharge, came together.
The shoe is a kind of mish-mash of technologies and styles from the past twenty or thirty years mixed with a more modern sensibility. With its neoprene and mesh upper the shoe reminds sneakerheads just as much of the 1988 Air Flow as it does the 1990 Current and Air Presto. It seems to draw so much from those old looks and materials that it comes off as part-homage to the old-school and part bold jump into the future with the inclusion of the new Lunarlon outsole. You can expect the first set of colorways for this new shoe to hit the shelves on the 18th of this month and the price tag to read an even $120. [Purchase]
