“Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ is part of the same iconic Flyknit collection the
2012 U.S. Olympic team wore at last summer’s Games,” said Scott Hoffman,
Finish Line’s executive vice president and chief merchandising officer.
“The Lunar1+ is precision engineered to give our customer the perfect
fit for the perfect run.”
Nike Flyknit Lunar1+’s innovative ultra-lightweight knit upper fits like
a second skin and features new wrap-around Flywire cables that cradle
the foot for lockdown support and a responsive ride. The shoe is one of
Nike’s most eco-friendly, made with a construction process that
minimizes weight and waste.
Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ will sell for $159.99 in Finish Line stores and
online. It will be available in 12 electric color combinations for both
men and women.
Finish Line will launch Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ on Thursday, Feb. 14 with
the largest, most integrated omni-channel campaign of the season. This
includes three-dimensional Flyknit displays and video monitors within
select Finish Line stores and Nike Track Club locations. In-store events
will be hosted in key markets featuring a steaming process that allows
consumers to have their Flyknits custom fit to their feet.
Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ will also be the main feature on FinishLine.com
including key display and content areas. Consumers will be able to take
a short quiz to determine which Nike Flyknit is their perfect fit and
enter to win a $1,000 Finish Line shopping spree. The campaign is
heavily focused on social media with plans that extend to Facebook,
Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.
