  • The LunarEpic Flyknit Low features the Laser Siped midsole that provides enhanced flexibility all throughout the foot. This works perfectly with the injected Phylon core foam that is engineered to provide a plush ride.
  • The shoe also features the laser-cut outsole that gives added cushioning while increasing traction. It also gives durability while running on the road.

The Nike LunarEpic Flyknit Low has a standard running shoe length. It has a medium measurement in the heel, midfoot and forefoot area. The toe box is just right for the toes to move comfortably while running. The shoe comfortably accommodates medium-footed runners. Nike is offering the shoe in standard D and B widths for men’s and women’s version respectively.


The pressure-mapped and laser cut outsole of the shoe delivers reliable traction while running on the road. It fits perfectly with the heel pods that provide a smooth heel transition. The outsole, which is also relatively the same as the LunarEpic Flyknit Low 2, also gives added underfoot protection and shoe durability.


The midsole features the contoured and soft Lunarlon midsole. It has precision-lasered cuts specifically designed to deliver a smoother heel-to-toe transition. The Laser Siped midsole provides improved flexibility in every step.


The upper of the Nike LunarEpic Flyknit Low features the lightweight one-piece Flyknit that delivers maximum breathability and sock-like fit. The Dynamic Flywire cable provides added support and comfortable fit without adding weight to the shoe.
