This is a huge year for sports. Big sporting events often impact trends in athletic wear and influence new styles and technology in athletic shoes. This summer, you’ll see athletes wearing lots of bold, saturated colors and bright shades.
One of our newest running shoes this season and a style that’s heavily influenced by the sporting world is the Nike LunarStelos. The Nike LunarStelos is built for speed but looks as cool as it is fast. The soft, contoured dual-density midsole provides a plush ride and the pressure-mapped outsole features responsive pods in key areas to provide targeted cushioning. Laser cuts on these pods help absorb impact while distributing it across your foot. Flywire technology is integrated with the lacing for a dynamic, supportive fit.
Another big trend in athletics are bright colors that fade from one into the next. You’ll see styles like the Nike LunarStelos that blend related colors from turquoise to a lime green to bright yellow. Fades are also popular in more tonal shifts from one shade of the same color to another, like a transition from dark blue to light blue.
To make an even bolder statement, sport a more dramatic combination like this Nike Flex that fades from hot pink to neon yellow. Available Aug. 4, you’ll be sure to see this popular color combo flying past others on the track.
We love bright athletics for so many reasons but the best thing about this trend is that it’s all about confidence and fun. It doesn’t matter if you’re going for a run or just running around town, these are the shoes you want to be seen in!
