Nike's Flyknit Lunar 2 goes i.d.

When my friends over at Nike called and told me to meet them down the street at their 21 Mercer shop, I didn't ask why--because when you get a call from the swoosh you just don't just show up. The back room of the one-of-a-kind retail space is so legendary that scheduled appointments stay booked solid, as the location accommodates over 50 i.d. sessions a week--I wasn't aware that I'd be the first to i.d. the new Flyknit Lunar 2s.

The newest installment in Nike's ever-growing, always improving line of running shoes boasts all of the refined elements of the last few years of innovations. The contoured fit of Flyknit technology and flywire, paired with the lightweight support and responsive cushioning of a lunar sole make these kicks the culmination of R&D (research & development) the brand has done. Staying a step ahead (pun intended) the Nike team (double pun?) just added these flyknit Lunar 2s to their i.d. line-up and the good news is--you don't have to schedule an appointment to create yours. You can head right over 


and take all the time on the world messing with a variety of color combinations and i.d. tags.

I left 21 Mercer with a design card and an e-mail in my inbox of my personal design, because with so many Nikes in the gym, who wants to wear the same shoes as everyone else...right? Now all that's left to do is wait for my i.d. kicks to arrive. Many thanks to Sarah, Haley, and Ezechi at Mercer, I had a rad time!
