It’s been said that Nike changes the way the world works out. In the world of running, this is undeniable. The Nike Free+ running shoe, on top of becoming insanely popular itself, inspired a number of less-comfortable knock-offs and introduced America to the minimalist running movement.
Nike doesn’t always produce the best shoes, but they produce the most marketable ones. They are Asics’s and Mizuno’s more handsome, more popular jock cousin.
Earlier this week, further demonstrating his celebrity, Nike’s co-founder appeared as one of Oprah’s final guests. In her honor, Phil Knight brought a special edition of the Lunarglide+2, customized for the Oprah show.
This model has a special colorway, and has Phil and Oprah’s names on the laces. There’s also a design of an oak tree, which is apparently significant to the beloved talk show host.
I haven’t seen any of these on ebay yet, but you can probably expect them to start appearing soon. They’re a one-time release, and probably the most valuable running shoes in the world. I just hope no one actually runs in them.Share on Facebook
