Nike Lunar Gato II
Today, Nike reveal the return of one of the most loved (and therefore, most missed) small-sided specific shoes - the Lunar Gato II. Refreshed and remixed for 2019, the new Nike Lunar Gato II brings performance and style to those pitches that demand close control and tighter reflexes.

Now the Swoosh always offers a varied selection of footwear suited to urban game, with each new pack featuring turf or indoor variants of the popular silos. But the LunarGato II comes from a different breed. Here is a shoe that was designed first and foremost to aid those players who call the court their home.
Introduced back in 2013, the shoe takes its' name in part from the innovative Lunarlon cushioning system that is both responsive and comfortable. Designed to support quick, multi-directional changes, the Lunar Gato offers both support and traction when it is needed most. From acceleration to braking to acceleration again, usually all in the confines of tight spaces, the Lunar Gato II is so revered because it allowed players to express their style with confidence and assurance with unrivalled stability.
Upgraded and updated for this 2019 model comes a super-soft leather upper across the forefoot, boasting a quilted pattern design made famous on Ronaldinho's 10R Dois line (and more recently on the limited edition 10R Sala collection). If there's one player who knows about ball control, it's Gaucho. The toe box also gets some reinforcement treatment, a high traffic area prone to drags and scraps so this rougher, grippier element is a definite welcome addition.
From the midfoot to the heel, the upper changes to HyperFuse mesh panels which are part arranged in a transparent design, not only to look cool but feel cool too. It's here that the bold Swoosh logo also starts and wraps around the heel for a clean finish.
Dropping first in this 'Anthracite/Ember Glow' colour way the Nike Lunar Gato II is set to become one of the stand out releases this year - and we're only in the second month.
The return of the Nike Lunar Gato II is all set for February 18th, 2019. Set your alarms and get your browser refresh finger ready on prodirectsoccer.com to be the first to experience the new generation of small sided performance footwear. You won't want to miss this.
