Nike continues its quest to make its shoes even more like cushioned socks with the Nike Lunar Presto (£79; roughly $120). This incredibly lightweight shoe features a water-resistant mesh upper that works with a Flywire lace cage to provide an excellent fit while minimizing bulk and allowing for maximum ventilation. A Lunarlon sole rounds out the offering, which comes in a spring-friendly light grey/dark slate grey/orange colorway. [via]
A classic design gets a modern upgrade with the New Balance Revlite 574 Sneakers ($75). While they do feature a new Revlite midsole that provides added responsiveness and durability while weighing 30% less than comparable foams, the rest of the shoe is decidedly old-school, from the basic tri-tone design to the leather upper. Available in four colorways, including black/red, the patriotic navy, white, and red, the running-at-nighttime-friendly hi-viz yellow, black, and white, and the springtime special blue with silver.
Leave it to the sneaker wizards at Nike to come up with a new technological innovation by looking at something as simple as a cheap toy. Inspired by the Chinese finger trap, the woven upper of the Nike Free Trainer 5.0 ($TBD) provides a glove-like fit that moves with your foot during exercise to offer outstanding support. As with all Nike Free models, it also offers a natural motion outsole that delivers a barefoot-like feel, as well as outstanding cushioning, rubber nodes for traction on any surface, and eye-catching looks. Available March 28. [Scouted by Daniel]
