The exceptionally flexible and lightweight women's Nike LunarEclipse 4 running shoe is packed with great features to make your run as efficient as possible. Utilising a Dynamic fit system with Flywire the shoe creates a glove-like fit for increased comfort and support whilst an engineered mesh keeps your feet fresh mile after mile.
Shoe Category: Stability
Ideal Use: Road Running
- Flywire helps provide ultra-lightweight support and comfort for your foot. It gets its strength from thin nylon fibers strategically placed on the upper of the shoe to hold the foot in place, helping to reduce slippage during activity. This allows for a massive reduction in weight because material is used only where it's needed for structure.
- Dynamic support in the shoe's midsole provides the stability you need in an ultra-smooth ride, without the added weight or stiffness of a traditional medial post. It features more soft foam on the lateral side for cushioning on impact and more firm foam on the medial side for support.
- Lunarlon cushioning features a soft, yet resilient foam core encased within a supportive foam carrier for lightweight, ultra-plush cushioning, springy response and support. This innovative foam, invented at Nike and 30 percent lighter than traditional Phylon, allows the force of impact to be more evenly distributed and helps reduce painful pressure points on your foot.
When superstar track and field coach Bill Bowerman met talented middle-distance runner Phil Knight, an unlikely partnership was formed.
Bowerman was looking for lighter, more durable running shoes for his Oregon University Runners, and Knight was searching for a way to make a living without having to give up athletics all together. The two put their heads together and came up with a shoe that featured outsoles modelled on a waffle iron – unconventional, but somehow it worked.
Bowerman and Knight named their new venture Nike, after the Greek goddess of victory, and began selling their shoes from out the boot of a car. From these humble beginnings, the company has grown into a sports industry market leader, and its distinctive ‘swoosh’ logo is arguably the most recognisable brand logo on the planet.
Despite this success, Nike’s mission statement remains the unchanged: To bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world. Because if you have a body, you’re an athlete.
