Who should buy the Nike LunarEpic Flyknit Shield
One of Nike’s most eye-catching and innovative shoes, the LunarEpic Flyknit becomes an all-weather shoe with the inclusion of a water-repellent upper and water-resistant cleatie. This is an ideal shoe if:
- You want a road running shoe that can protect your foot from moderately wet conditions and running surfaces.
- You prefer a running shoe that still remains lightweight in spite of the protective features and added elements.
Updates to the LunarEpic Flyknit Shield
- A water-repellent upper for protection against wet weather conditions and for warmth
- A midrise upper construction that goes up to the ankle for enhanced support
Laser-cut outsole for flexibility
The innovation of the Swoosh in the LunarEpic Flyknit Shield continues in the underfoot. With a siped outsole that is laser-cut, the shoe gets excellent flexibility. A very sticky rubber is used in the outsole for superior traction, even on wet surfaces. The outsole layout also gives a boost in the cushioning due to the design and location of the well-articulated pods.
Smooth ride from the Lunarlon
The same laser-cut design on the outsole is also utilized in the fused Lunarlon foam that covers the length of the midsole. It gives the shoe another element of flexibility and boosts the smoothness of the gait cycle.
The LunarEpic Flyknit Shield's feature-packed upper
The Flyknit offers good breathability and covers the foot from the forefoot to the lower leg in a one-piece structure. Nike uses this design to increase the support and stability of the shoe.
In this version of the LunarEpic Flynit, the Shield technology gives water resistance to make it almost an all-weather runner.
The Flywire cables provide optimal midfoot security and support.
