Now the LunaRacer+ 3 ups the ventilation thanks to an Engineered Mesh upper, while at the same time promising increased support via Dynamic Fit. The sole hasn’t changed for a good reason – Nike had it right from the beginning. So if you are looking for a lightweight runner to go the distance, keep your eyes peeled for this release in January 2013. Pick up a copy of Sneaker Freaker issue 26 for more featherweight kicks.
