The New Nike SB Lunar Gato is another exciting shoe release by Nike SB, and is now available at Trainers Skateboarding on Auckland’s High Street. The shoe is slightly different from your usual every day skate shoe and this is partly due to its silhouette shape that is a direct adaptation from an already existing Nike Soccer shoe, with skate-specific detailing added.
The shoe itself is a low top cup sole shoe as you can probably tell. The upper is a tough suede for durability that features mesh panel cut outs for extra breathability. It has a one piece toe cap, with a layer of coating in high ware areas to increase durability and give the shoes a bit more life. As with most elite Nike SB shoes the midsole is full Nike Lunarlon Cushioning system for impact support. A patterned articulated gum rubber outsole with non-marking traction gives you unique board feel and grip. Another feature on the outsole are two different density rubber patches that have been strategically placed in high ware places.
All and all a pretty good looking shoe, with plenty of features and technologies to give you the best possible skate experience. Hit this for more!
