Dark Obsidian ~ Nike Lunar FlyKnit Chukka


Nike Lunar FlyKnit Chukka // Dark Obsidian/Dark Obsidian-Game Royal-Sail

By Jesse Rowell Jr

Great for all types of athletes who want the style and functionality of lightweight running shoes that push the edge, Nike has introduced the new Lunar Flyknit Chukka. As the name suggests, Nike has used Flyknit material in the upper, paired with a Lunarlon midsole/outsole combination. Flyknit is a woven based technology that creates a sock like feel around your foot with nylon threads interlaced throughout the material to provide minimal structure. The chukka term specifically identifies the mid ankle-length height of the upper.          

This shoe comes from the NSW (Nikesportswear) category so it speaks to style first with a strong heritage in lightweight performance running. I was attracted to this shoe because it does not scream gym shoe , but instead it expresses the athletic essence of my personality. This shoe is currently in the marketplace at various sneaker boutiques’ and athletic apparel stores. Please enjoy a few profile photos below and let us know what you think…
