Nike recently announced the Air Max Lunar90, a new lightweight shoe for next year, which offer Lunarlon technology that will practically put spring in the step. This is an update to the classic Air Max 90, and it promises to move better wherever your feet might take you. The shoes will be ready to step out next spring.

Fitness trackers aren’t the sort of thing that look all that good except when you’re wearing workout gear. Nike is looking to change that up a bit with a special version of it Nike+ Fuelband, which came out earlier this month.
For those who want style as well as functionality take a gander at the Rose Gold Nike+ FuelBand SE. As Nike puts it:
“Available in limited quantities worldwide, the striking Rose Gold colorway takes cues from high end timeware, with a clasp, bezel and screws manufactured from 316 series stainless steel. These beautifully crafted metal components are then hand polished to a mirror finish and given a beautiful and extremely durable PVD coating.”
Nike’s latest moon shot is ready for launch. The Nike Lunar LDV Sneakerboot features a springy Lunarlon cushioning along with aggressive traction that will help provide impact protection along with plenty of stability. It is ready for touchdown on just about any surface.
The Nike+ Fuelband SE features small tweaks that promise to offer improved performance. The iOS app has been updated as well, but we are still waiting for an Android one to follow. As with the original model it will track the intensity of workouts, count steps, monitor sleep and display progress in real time.
You’ll be able to get refueled starting November 1.
The new Nike Lunarterra Arktos books look truly out of this world. The modular books appear to be ready for a cold hostile environment, and while that might not be the moon these will get through the upcoming winter. These feature a Lunarlon midsole that means lighter weight, but with improved comfort and movement of the foot; while the Vac Tec molding helps create a serious seal – it might not endure the vacuum of space but it will keep rain, snow and slush out. Ideal for hiking or just shoveling the driveway these boots will offer stability and keep the feet warm.
Nike also reminds us that “arktos” is ancient Greek for “bear” and is where the term “Arctic” is derived. In other words these arctic ready boots will be good cold weather – and they’ll arrive just in time.
Nike has put its best forward in so many sports that we’re not sure how many feet it actually has, but the company has looked to get on deck as well with the Poler x Nike Braata Sneakers. This partnership brings Nike know-how along with Poler Outdoor Stuff camouflage for shoes that don’t so much blend in as totally stand out.
The Nike Braata skateboarding shoe is available in three camo patterns including classic camo, night camo and now the autumn camo.
We’re not saying this shoe burned up and rose from the ashes, but perhaps if you wear it you’ll be able to burn up the track – at least stylistically. The Nike Air Pegasus 83/30 offers a classic look and comes in a range of colors. There is even a reflective strip that provides visibility at night. The shoe offers a mesh upper that features stitch-less construction for a comfortable fit with excellent ventilation. It will look good and feel good – and isn’t that a way to rise above?
Next week at the Interbike trade show in Las Vegas Oakley and Nike Max will introduce their respective lines of Transitions adaptive sunglasses that change depending on outdoor light. This can help enhance vision during outdoor sports and activities and these are color optimized while offering increased contrast to improve distance and depth perception, and even block 100 percent of UV rays.
Fall is in the air and soon the colors will change, but first you can change up and show your team spirit as well with Nike’s new limited-edition NFL jersey. These are available exclusively at Champs Sports.
Nike doesn’t stop, and the shoe and apparel maker has apparently been keeping quite busy. The new Free Hyperfeel shoes are designed to mimic the working of the human foot. This was accomplished by using the pressure-mapping technology and high-speed film to analyze the foot in motion so that the Nike’s designers were able to provide padding and protection only where it is needed.
The end result is a shoe that features just seven components – so this is a truly minimal shoe in more ways than one. These new shoes will hit the road in September. Video after the jump
Nike isn’t likely to be caught standing still. Not that a company really goes running, but with shoes like the Nike Free Flyknit motion is just something that might seem perpetual. This pair combines two running shoe technologies, the Flyknit and the Free, and the result promises to be something comfortable and lightweight.
The Flyknit Free offers a second-skin fit while the upper, midsole and outsole work to create a natural feel with every step. The upper features a polyester yarn that is woven with a proprietary knitting machine to create little to no waste, while further minimizing weight.
While it might be hard to reinvent the wheel, Nike continues to look to refine the soccer ball. Its new Incyte was designed with Nike RaDaR technology and micro-textured casing to provide for high visibility and consistent touch on the field. This pattern reportedly allows players to see the ball and react faster, while the five-layer construction provides for better control at first touch.
The design also promises faster, farther and more accurate ball flight. Nike might just “incite” a revolution on the soccer pitch with the Incyte.
Wherever your travels take you the Nike Golf NG360 app will be there with you. The new app, which launched in the United States last May, will now be able to track rounds on more than 30,000 courses in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Germany, Sweden and France. Available for iOS it can provide golfers with an innovative digital tool for swing analysis, game tracking and gear recommendations.
The app allows golfers to score rounds and track various statistics including scoring average, driving accuracy, greens in regulation and average putts per round. The NG360 app allows golfers to see how they stack up by monitoring results and beating their personal bests.
The training section also helps golf athletes get into golf shape thanks to Nike Golf’s partnership with the Gray Institute, the foremost leader in Applied Functional Science. The Gray Institute has developed the NG360 Functional Performance System that is tailored to golf movements that the body makes, a clear distinction from other training systems; while golfers can also navigate the latest Nike Golf products in the app that are suitable to their needs. These include the Nike Golf Ball Recommender, which makes it easy for golfers to find the right ball for their game, while athletes can get dialed from tee to green, driver setting recommendations and game analysis are included in the app.
