Nike Lunar Flyknit sneakers: Trainer Tuesday
Nike's women's trainer offering continues to impress us, and with more and more style-conscious types incorporating the sporty shoes into their everyday wardrobes, it's good to see the brand responding with some neutral and utterly wearable new designs. Shoes that can be taken from the gym to the boardroom are few and far between, but I've seen it done with these 'Lunar Flyknit' sneakers recently, and it works surprisingly well.
There's a lot of attention to detail going on in these shoes, from the speckled soles to the incorporation of the Nike 'swoosh' into the uppers. But as performance shoes they are equally effective, with ultra lightweight soles and a highly breathable 'mesh' effect created by the charcoal grey knitted fabric.
The merging of performance and lifestyle shoes is really picking up pace at the moment, and this is perhaps the best example we've seen yet of a shoe that can tick both boxes.
