Later this month, Nike will launch the Quickstrike “Black Pack,” new colorways of their popular Free Run+ 2 and Lunarglide+ 3 running shoes. The pack consists of four sleek black-based looks of each model, evenly distributed amongst male and female runners.
Tipping the scales at just 9.4 ounces, the Nike Free Run+ 2 features a breathable mesh, multi-layer upper that offers a lightweight, second-skin-like fit. Comfort is enhanced through the use of an off-center lacing system and full inner-sleeve. A sculpted Phylite midsole/outsole also provides lightweight support and cushioning. Deep Nike Free sipes deliver flexibility for a barefoot-like ride. BRS 1000 carbon rubber heel and environmentally preferred rubber give extra durability. A Waffle piston outsole increases cushioning and response.
The Nike LunarGlide+ 3 running shoe is equipped with the desired cushioning, adaptive support and accommodating fit, without unnecessary extras. A highly-breathable seamless-constructed upper features a dynamic midfoot saddle. Comfort and support are provided by a dynamic inner-sleeve and external heel counter. The Lunarlon cushioning system with bottomless” carrier construction and Dynamic Support platform also enhance support and cushioning. Gender-specific flex grooves ensure an efficient stride. Below, BRS 1000 is placed at the heel, with environmentally preferred rubber filling in everywhere else.
Men are the recipients of the Free Run+ 2 in Electric Lime and Challenge Red-accented colorways, as well as the Lunarglide+ 3 in Neptune Blue and Total Orange. For women’s there’s Tide Pool Blue and Bright Mango colorways of the Free Run+ 2 and the Lunarglide+ 3 in Pink Flash and Light Thistle.
