Nike Running x Undercover GYAKUSOU LunarSpider LT+2

Nike Running x Undercover GYAKUSOU LunarSpider LT+2 & Happy Socks
Jun Takahashi is not only a cult icon and one of the biggest names in Japanese fashion, he is also an active runner. Nike Running and Takahashi's Undercover brand have been collaborating on several GYAKUSOU running collections that present a completely new idea of what running equipment should look and feel like.

Because the style & sizing of these collections is distinctively Japanese (aka too small for me even in XL) I have to focus on the footwear which also available in limited amount of locations in sizes up to US12. I found these Nike Lunarspider LT+2's from NikeTown Berlin - haven't been this excited about running shoes for a long time. They don't only look good, but I think that performance-wise the LunarSpider series could finally be a perfect replacement for the Katana series Nike cut down already in 2009.
