TUNED FOR EVERY DISTANCE, EVERY SPEED AND EVERYDAY TRAINING
For the runner who’s seeking the lightweight performance of a racing flat, but prefers the plush cushioning of an everyday trainer, Nike has introduced the new Nike LunarTempo. Inspired by its predecessor the Nike Lunaracer, the new Nike LunarTempo features enhanced durability, more support and added comfort.
Design inspiration came from the closets of some of the world’s fastest young runners, including the NBRO run crew in Copenhagen. Nike designers ran and met with athletes, studying their well-loved and worn-out collections of running shoes. Their shoe closets revealed that many runners had logged high mileage in their Nike Lunaracers and could benefit from more support and comfort to perform through the daily miles demanded in training.
Nike designers embraced the challenge and engineered the new Nike LunarTempo to provide the lightweight cushioning of racing flats with added support and durability.
“As always, our source of inspiration is the athlete. After seeing how many runners were using the race shoe for their everyday training, we used the insights as a framework for our design solutions,” said Dave Roulo, Senior Designer of Running Footwear. “The shoe was designed to deliver comfort, cushioning and responsive performance in training.”
