History of the Nike LunarCharge Premium

Introduced in November 2016, the Nike LunarCharge Premium silhouette drew inspiration from the Nike Air Current which was released way ahead of its time in 1990. To have that sock-like fitting, Nike included a neoprene upper for a more lightweight stride from the Nike Air Flow released in 1988.

Nike LunarCharge Premium Outsole

Inspired by pressure maps of the foot, the sole of the Nike LunarCharge Premium is a rubber-free outsole with laser-siped pods that move individually for precision compression into a comfortable ride and energy return.
