Flyknit uppers have been incredibly popular ever since they were first released in 2012. The material makes for a formfitting and fluid fit that almost vanishes on the foot. Up until now, however, Flyknit runners have not been nearly as good about repelling water as they have been at providing a seamless fit. That is all about to change with the Nike LunarEpic Flyknit Shield.

This shoe is constructed from a Durable Water Resistant TPU yarn fit over an additional water repellant internal bootie that work together to keep your feet dry and warm without compromising on the legendary feel of Flyknit. Nike didn’t stop just there when developing these shoes. They constantly tested and re-tested different outsole designs in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado during the winter and spring snowmelt to find the right balance of control and dynamic fit. What they ended up with is an IU LunarEpic outsole with laser siping inspired in part by the design on winter car tires. Finally. No more retiring the Flyknit runners when the winter rears its head. The shoes are expected to be released on November 3rd, just in time for the wet whether that lies ahead. [Purchase]
