Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on October 6, 2010 in Events 2 Comments

Nike ACG mingles with the Lunar Lite running silhouettes this Fall/Winter 2010 for two, one-of-a-kind hybrids.

The shoe takes the technologies from Nike’s performance running design mind, with a Lunarlon midsole, flywire in the upper and featherweight synthetics. The raised collar created a midcut for added support and protection to extend the shoe’s range in the wearer’s chosen environment. The colour selection comes inspired from ACG and references past ACG iconic colourways from shoes like the Air Terra and Lava High.

The Lunar Wood+ takes the lunar sole and puts a modified Wildwood ACG Nike on top.  This trail friendly shoe is ultra-light, practical and looks good with some denim.  Follow the jump for all the details and more pics.  You can pick these up in-store at our Moreland location: $125 for the Lunar Elite Trail Mid+ and $100 for the Lunar Wood+
