Having successfully brought the world’s fastest soccer cleat into the lifestyle realm with the Nike Lunar Magista II Flyknit FC, the Portland-based company follows up with a style-savvy rendition: The Nike Lunar Magista II Flyknit FC Black & White offers a two-tone take on the technically advanced mid-top silhouette.
The exposed Flyknit upper is complemented by a black-and-white star-spangled swoosh, the crafted heel counter is executed in transparent PU embossed with NIKE FC lettering, and the shoe rests on an all-black Lunarlon-enhanced sole. Details like a black sock collar, black laces, and dotted pull tabs on the heels enhance the monochromatic look.
Are black and white uppers with elaborate materializations – meaning knits, dyes, washes, etc. – a new trend for 2017? After the recent release of the monochromatic acid wash Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar Club C Capsule, it’s definitely worth keeping on the #trendwatch17 radar (right next to tan-colored uppers).
