Voted “Editor’s Choice” by Runner’s World (February 2013) and tested and worn on the world stage by elite runners, the latest in the Flyknit series, the Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ men’s running shoe combines a precision-engineered, virtually seamless upper and an updated cushioning system to deliver the ideal blend of targeted support, breathability and springy response. I’ve had a chance to take the Flyknits out on a couple of runs already, and I’ve go to say, they are out-of-this world. Well, if by out-of-this-world you mean really light and really comfortable. Then, yes. Yes, they are out-of-this-world.
