Nike — Lunarlon Cushioning

Sneaker Shown: Nike Lunar Rejuven8 Mid

Year: 2010

After studying images of astronauts delicately bounding on the surface of the moon "as if on marshmallows," Nike sought to develop a top-flight cushioning technology to replicate that very weightlessness. The soft and light Lunarlon foam is embedded in a firmer Phylon foam, which creates a dual-density construction that allows for the distribution of the force of impact over a larger surface area across the foot without sacrificing any stability. This inevitably leads us to ponder when and where we can buy a Lunarlon mattress?
