Nike has released its latest colorway in the Nike5 Lunar Gato range in a pretty wild Cherry/Black/Gum colorway. Realistically, I would term these to be more of a Hot Pink and I am not surprised that Nike has played off the success of other similar colors with this release. There is definitely a large audience of fanatics who will just love this look, so don’t be surprised if you see several players wearing these in street/indoor games!
Although this colorway is definitely not my style, I will admit that the Nike5 Lunar Gato is a boot built for top class performance. There will not be too many indoor shoes that surpass what the Nike Lunar Gato has to offer. It is obvious that Nike has placed lots of attention to this indoor range in order to capture a piece of the market. These boots bend in all the right areas and move just as you would expect.
The Lunar Gato includes Lunarlite technology, a unique lightweight cushioning that is 30% lighter than regular insole. It reduces weight and gives more spring on impact. Nike use a natural leather upper with an unusually positioned rubber toe and medial side panel that aids durability and ball friction. If this colorway is not your cup of tea, there are others available including three very different versions that were released a few weeks back.
In terms of this Cherry/Black colorway, they are currently on the market and available for $84.99.
