The world of runners has been growing at an exponential rate. From new technology to enhancing what we already know, the runner has been a staple in the sneaker community. As of recent, these technologies that were first introduced in runners are finding their home in other sports like basketball. Action sports are getting into the action as well; introducing the Nike Lunar Rod.

The Lunar technology is great for action sports. Lunarlon cushioning features a soft, yet resilient foam core encased within a supportive foam carrier for lightweight, ultra-plush cushioning, springy response and support; which is great for the high flying sport that is skateboarding. From taking on a set of stairs to pushing yourself to make that gap, Lunarlon cushioning will definitely find a home here. The outsole has a Free like look as per the Nike free 5.0 which has great responsiveness with your movement and great flexibility to help you land that next trick.

The Nike Lunar Rod isn't the first SB to utilize Lunarlon technology as it could be found in the Koston One. You can head over to your local skate shop and pickup yourself a pair of the Nike Lunar Rod.
