Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 — Made Light to Go Long

The Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 pairs plush Lunarlon cushioning with an incredibly light and strong Flyknit upper that is breathable, flexible and supportive all at once.

Impossibly Light and Incredibly Strong Marries Soft and Responsive: The Nike Flyknit Lunar 3

The Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 is the third generation of the running shoe coveted by elite and everyday runners alike.  The latest improvements include:

  • An evolved Flyknit upper with a tighter knit structure in the heel for support and more open knit in the forefoot for increased breathability and stretch.
  • Contoured, locked-down fit with an integrated tongue that stays in place and a plush collar for comfort.
  • A reformulated Lunarlon midsole and solid rubber outsole informed by pressure-mapping data to provide a soft and responsive ride.

“The Flyknit Lunar 3 combines what runners love about the Flyknit Lunar shoe with evolutions of two of our best innovations and technologies together,” says Rob Williams, Senior Design Director of Running Footwear.  “We listened to what athletes loved about the shoe and evolved the Flyknit design to deliver more of the superiour strength and snug support on top of an even lighter Lunarlon ride.”

Flyknit

Flyknit innovation enables designers to micro-engineer every stitch of the upper and eliminates the need to use multiple materials common in traditional sports footwear manufacturing.  This yields a lighter, virtually seamless upper for the runner and reduced waste in manufacturing.

For even more support, Flywire cables are integrated with Flyknit to cradle the foot and provide a personalized, secure fit.  The formfitting upper is so light, runners will barely know it’s there.

Lunarlon

A reformulated Lunarlon midsole delivers a lighter, more responsive and supportive ride from the cushioning runners have grown to love and expect from Lunarlon.  On the outsole, pressure map data informed a pattern that more closely matches how the foot moves as it strides.  Designers applied these insights to the rubber outsole that provides a smooth transition from heel strike through toe-off.  The result is a lightweight neutral shoe with an even more natural stride and cushioned fluid ride.

“The Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 is the formula for the perfect run with an ultra-light supportive fit combined with soft, responsive Lunarlon cushioning that gives runners a plush feel through the entire run,” Williams continues.

The Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 is available beginning Feb. 12 in a nike.com exclusive colorway.  It will then be offered in 12 colors for men and women beginning March 5.  Whether it’s a runner’s first mile, or signing up for the Nike Women’s Race Series in 2015 or attempting a fastest marathon – the Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 delivers runners the ultimate in performance-plus-style.

Nike Women’s Race Series 2015 will be the world’s largest race series designed for women.  Epic courses in 20 cities around the world including Toronto, London, Hong Kong, and Manila.

Hotel Review: City Center Hotel (Baguio, 2017)

We stayed at City Center Hotel for the latter half of our impromptu Baguio trip.  This isn’t my first time to stay here so it’s a good chance to see what’s changed since then.

Hotel Review: Casa Vallejo

One of the hotels we stayed in during our impromptu Baguio trip is Casa Vallejo.  This property dates back to 1909 so it has that “old world” charm that drew us to it.  Here’s my review of the oldest hotel in Baguio City.
