When was the last time you got excited about a cricket shoe? Don’t remember? It’s ok, we don’t blame you. But, whether you’re a fan or not, you’ll surely remember the collection of cricket spikes Nike has blessed us with today.
With a little help from Indian player R. Ashwin, and former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, Nike has unveiled two of its most innovative cricket shoes to date: the Lunardominate, and the Lunaraccelerate.
Each shoe is highlighted with Nike’s Lunarlon technology for enhanced cushioning that offers dynamic and responsive support on the cricket pitch. Both the Lunardominate (designed for batting), and the Lunaraccelerate (designed for bowling—the cricket form of pitching) have a ventilated mesh upper for increased breathability during long matches, along with strategically placed flex grooves on the outsoles for better movement and grip.
Unfortunately, if you want to get your hands on a pair, you’ll have to travel Far East, as the shoes are only available at Nike-branded retail stores in India.
