The purple Lunar One+ looks great.

Not for $180, though.
post #1742 of 84804
I don't understand why the lunar +version would cost more with less expensive tooling. How does the bottom of a $110 shoe and the upper of a $150 shoe = $180?

I'm still excited for the new colors!
post #1743 of 84804
Where did this $180 come from? Source from whomever posted it?

Zoom should cost more than Lunar foam, so its not logical to have it cost more than the current ones.

Yeah, you definitely won't feel the same plushness, if any, in the FlyKnits.

Regarding the soles, that's correct. The Lunar Ones have the same "Bottomless Carrier" sole technology as the LG4s and LunarEclipses. It's a two piece construction system, where the a portion of the firm Lunar foam outsole/carrier is cut out in the forefoot. That portion is replaced by the soft Lunar foam that's also extends from the midsole, and it provides more cushioning in the forefoot.

By Neutral, you mean you don't overpronate nor supinate, correct?

I'm pretty sure the Lunar Ones are meant to be a Stability shoe given the LG4 sole. I'm thinking they'll feel similar to the original LunarTrainer. They don't have any plushness around the ankles, yet they offer a pretty cushioned and responsive ride.

Thanks, but they don't seem to know how to answer a phone. I've called 8 times and they all went to voicemail.

Illy do you own a pair of flyknits right now or are you waiting for the lunar version?

Nope. I've tried them on and all, but I'm really waiting on the Lunar Ones.

Excellent article. The possibilities seem truly endless really with the FKs.

Yea, I don't overpronate or supinate... I think you helped me answer my own question. I just had to pay closer attention to how Nike categorizes its shoes...the FlyKnit Trainers are under their "neutral" heading and as you mentioned, the LG4 and LunarEclipse (and looks like the LunarOnes) are for "stability"...

I guess I'll have to see if the Trainers will have enough cushioning...Vomeros are dreamy and all but I feel like I'm gonna tip over

I really hope the black pair is this color-way. When this Racer color-way was first posted, I thought is was black/white, now I see that it is a black/gray/white. Hopefully it is the same.
post #1762 of 84804

Wow I would love to have racers in black and white. If this is true, I may have to purchase them...The volt was too flashy for me...

There is certainly room for some flyknits in neutral colourways.

Would love to see a winterised version bonded to a goretex membrane to keep out the wet. Hell, maybe even a pair knitted with kevlar thread that could be used for trail running.

This is a color-way we havent seen yet. I definitely like this color-way. I hope these drop before next year.
post #1770 of 84804
My first critique of these sneakers was so off.
I wore these sneakers casually a couple times and I love them, they are light and comfy.
They have decent cushion and are very breathable.
I will be racking up.
