NIKE FREE ORBIT II SP

We’re not gonna pretend that the NIKE FREE ORBIT II SP doesn’t conjure up strange tingly feelings in our nether regions. The original version of the Nike Lunar Orbit+ from 2011 was pretty much a Marmite shoe for most of us: a strange, alien runner with mesh uppers, a zip fastening instead of laces and etched-in GPS coordinates. The description sounds more traumatic than the final shoe looked, as it was a pretty smart piece of running kit and predated a lot of the geometric stylings that have become more popular over the past few months.

This new version is again designed by the legendary Nathan VanHook (designer of the Yeezy 2 and recently-appointed Athletic Training Design Director at Nike) and features a number of familiar details alongside the new elements: a 5.0 sole unit (instead of the Lunarlon seen on the first model), geometric stippling, a concealed zip, a mesh toe box and a re-up of the GPS coordinates from the first shoe.

With all the retro goodness going on, it’s always good to see something a bit different hitting the top tier shelves. The black and grey editions of the NIKE FREE ORBIT II SP both drop tomorrow, THURSDAY 24TH APRIL, both In-Store and Online with FOOTPATROL, SNS and also SLAM JAM SOCIALISM so set your alarms and get involved! Link-through provided below as always.
