Introduced by Nike as the future of running, the abilities of the LunarEpic are already wondrous – but this weather-beating upgrade is nigh on magical. On the surface, it looks like business as usual for the runner. But, above the laser-siped geometric pistons in the upper sits a Flyknit build that manages to be waterproof and breathable at the same time. The nuances of a material that can expel air and liquid without drawing it can be puzzling, though we advise leaving the details to the wizards at Beaverton and simply enjoying the results.
The NikeLab LunarEpic Shield Flyknit is available now from Footpatrol.
