“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” …and one Running Man, Roger Rabbit and Wop for sneakerheads! LOL…sorry I’m sure as you look at this you can tell what generation I’m from! If you are wondering what I’m talking about let me give you some background to educate you. On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon and 45 years later Nike has cemented the moment with a sneaker that will make you want to jump to the moon!


Introducing the Nike Air Max Lunar 90 SP (Moon Landing). I don’t even need to explain much about these sneakers…LOOK AT THEM! They are pretty much self explanatory and they are related to a VERY prominent moment in history, which in turn means that they are a MUST have for sneakerheads! I will be the first to admit that I’m not really into having patterns and things of that nature on my sneakers…but for these joints right here I will make an exception in a second!


As you can clearly see the sneaker is matted in a moon lunar surface pattern, BUT to make that much better Nike used 3M reflective technology over the WHOLE sneaker! CRAZY! So, imagine walking down the street at night with reflective moon shoes…literally!


Like most of the newer Air Max to be released lately the Nike Air Max Lunar 90 SP (Moon Landing) uses the Lunarlon technology and for this joint it only makes sense for them to use it. This sneaker stands in a whole league of its own due to the historical significance. This is really a big collector’s item and for those of you that get the opportunity to cop them…do NOT waste any time because you know these will be gone VERY fast!
