Latest workout gear: New trainers from Nike

Nothing feels better than a brand spanking new pair of workout shoes. Nike have fronted up with some fantastic new trainers for the beginning of 2013, and we’ve got the deets right here. Will you be rocking a pair of these next time you hit the gym?

Nike Flyknit Lunar1+

Based on the hugely popular ‘Flyknit’ which was launched during the Olympics last year, the Flyknit Lunar1+ is a lightweight, formfitting and virtually seamless Nike Flyknit upper combined with the super plush, responsive Lunarlon cushioning.

Since its launch in February 2012, Nike Flyknit technology has redefined the development and creation of footwear with its ability to be engineered to provide a more precise fit for the specific needs of the foot. Support and structure are knitted right into the Nike Flyknit upper, which helps reduce seams, weight and areas of friction and keeps the shoe lightweight.  This spring the Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ provides support, flexibility and breathability with a more cushioned midsole – a great solution for everyday runners.

Nike Flyknit construction also eliminates the need for the multiple materials and material cuts used in the uppers of traditional sport footwear manufacturing. This revolutionary construction reduces waste by an average of 80 percent in the Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ when compared to typical Nike running footwear.

Nike Air Max+ 2013 (RRP $250)

The franchise that started a revolution releases its 2013 edition totally designed for runners’ needs. The Nike Air Max+ 2013 features the most advanced heel-to-toe Nike Max Air unit ever to provide lightweight, soft cushioning and more flexibility than any previous version.

Nike Hyperfuse construction is used throughout the shoe to create a lighter, more breathable upper and a reduced overall weight, without sacrificing on comfort. Open hole mesh on the upper serves the dual purpose of allowing increased ventilation for comfort on the run and generating a sleek appearance.

The Nike Air Max+ 2013 takes its place as the latest incarnation of the Air Max franchise. As both a timeless statement of innovation and a perennial sports classic, visible air has set Nike apart for almost a quarter of a century.
