Meet the Nike LunarEpic Flyknit - the next-gen shoe designed to fit like a second skin and take your running to another level 

If you're the type who prioritises aesthetics over function when it comes to workout gear, then you obviously haven't met the Nike LunarEpic Flyknit runner. If there was ever a shoe that made running enjoyable (and long-distance worthy), well, we reckon this would be it.

Mixing top-notch performance with an incredible fit, the LunarEpic Flyknit has been designed to feel like you're not really wearing a runner at all. And not just in terms of weight, either. Thanks to a contoured midsoul (with fancy laser-cuts that actually collapse as your foot hits the ground) and an outsole with pods to provide targeted cushioning where you need it, the LunarEpic Flyknit's sole helps to absorb impact evenly across your feet as you run. 

Constructed in one piece as a near-seamless shoe, the LunarEpic FlyKnit's woven outerlay has been cleverly worked to give your foot breathing space in areas that require it, but a snug fit in places where you need extra support. And thanks to a fused foam midsole, the sole is super-durable and long-lasting, too. Each pair also comes with two sockliner options, so you can further customise your fit.

Given that Nike developed the LunarEpic Flyknit after consulting with seasoned runners, it's no small coincidence that the streamlined silhouette and flexible flywire upper (with integrated laces - a nice touch) is as close to a high-tech running sock as you can get. So in actual fact, the LunarEpic Flyknit literally fits like an extension of your leg and makes you feel like you can run that marathon you're always talking about.
