Nike LunarTerra Arktos “Bamboo”
Inspired by the the modularity of traditional Russian Matryoshka dolls while incorporating a distinct toughness as a nod to that of arctic bears, Nike Sportswear‘s LunarTerra Arktos delivers the best of two different worlds: the lightweight comfort of your favorite sneakers with the rugged, insulating protection of a heavy-duty boot. Following the release of the blacked-out and Volt/Black-Khaki-Mortar colorways, NSW presents a “Bamboo” edition of the technologically advanced footwear. Featuring bamboo-colored Hyperfuse construction with a darker brown Vac Tech molding throughout the tongue, toe and mudguard, the shoe incorporates plush Lunarlon cushioning as a sticky gum rubber outsole combats winter’s slippery conditions for superior traction. Finally, a removable sock-like bootie, Stetson leather, a bonded medial zipper, gusseted tongue, and flatlocked seams make the design completely waterproof. The Bamboo/Black-Newsprint-Team Red edition of the Nike LunarTerra Arktos is now available via Titolo while additional insights into the shoe’s design can be gathered from our interview with senior designer Nathan VanHook in the “Process” issue of HYPEBEAST Magazine, now available via the HYPEBEAST Store.
