Hight Intensity Training is fast becoming a favorite of the female athlete. Often referred to as "boot camp," the outdoor activity often includes up to one hour of intense training with a running element.
Nike has developed the perfect shoe for this burgeoning pastime with the Lunar Cross Element. The Lunar Cross element features extra-cushioning for the long, cardio heavy workouts of boot camp. A new Lunarlon cushioning is softer, lighter and more durable than previous versions, as it extends from the heel to the forefoot for a soft and responsive feel.
“We know that quite a bit of activity in High Intensity Training occurs in the forefoot,” says Nicole Mueller, the Nike Women’s Training Footwear Design Director. “Having cushioning there is key for drills such as mountain climbers or box jumps.”
The Lunar Cross Element is also designed to put the female athlete in a more natural stance thanks to the shoes three millimeter offset. To top it all off, Nike Flywire loosens and tightens with the movement of the foot for an adaptive fit.
The Nike Lunar Cross Fit will be available online in-stores beginning July 1.
