Nike Flyknit Lunar 1 + - Men's

Designed for runners with a neutral gait, the Nike Flyknit Lunar 1+ is an ultra-lightweight running shoe that delivers a dynamic fit with an excellent blend of cushioning and support. A one-piece upper with knit construction is made of polyester yarns that seamlessly integrate areas of high breathability, stretch, and support where you need it most. Flywire technology is ultra-lightweight, customizable through the laces, and wraps the foot for a dynamic fit. Low-profile knit tongue adds ventilation and comfort. Fitsole sockliner conforms to the shape of your foot, providing comfort and underfoot support. Pull-tab on the heel allows for easy on and off. Reflective elements remain visible in low-light conditions. Lunarlon cushioning system features a soft, yet resilient foam core that works with a supportive, bottomless foam carrier to provide support and plush, responsive cushioning. The firmer carrier foam core offers lightweight, springy response. Duralon blown rubber forefoot lugs deliver cushioning and helps encourage a more efficient, natural range of motion through toe-off. Flex groves add enhanced articulation flexibility, and a smooth transition. BRS 1000™ carbon rubber along the heel contact zone gives maximum abrasion resistance and long-wearing durability.

Question

shoe laces

Does this Nike shoe have laces there you DO NOT have to tie?, or are they just a pull on shoe? My son has poor motor skills, and wants Nikes that DO NOT tie. Thank you! Product #5488710

Depending on what type of shoe he likes, I tried to find some selections that might work for him. Sometimes the only way to search for shoes is to just check online periodically. I did ask about future shoes, and it seems we will have a 'lock type' lacing system available around the beginning of June, 2013. I will list these first, and the sku's afterwards are the ones I found.
1160NB LOCK LACES-BLACK
1160NG LOCK LACES-COOL GREY
1160NW LOCK LACES-WHITE
1160NF LOCK LACES-HOT PINK
1160NENE LOCK LACES-SULFUR SPRING
1160NNO LOCK LACES-NEON ORANGE
sku #4991010, sku #53152 (has laces, but if kept tied?), sku #57750, sku #496001, and most slides will have velcro straps too
This is a small grouping. If I had unlimited time, I would try to list more. But as I stated, sometimes the only way to see the selections is to search the website yourself, or have your son try if he is able.

The men's Nike Flyknit Lunar 1 + shoe does have fully functional laces that tie. I have a 'shout out' to some people that should be able to help me find some 'laceless' shoes for you. I will provide another answer once I receive this information.

Item #28211956 is not showing up on the website for me. I did see your previous question about the laces on the men's Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ shoe, and I will answer that one when I return from the warehouse. Even with that question, the sku number you listed doesn't appear to be in stock. But I will check the Nike Flyknit Lunar1+ shoe to see what lacing system it has.

Question

What is the cushioning like compared to...

I'd like to know if anybody can say anything about how different the levels of cushioning or shock absorbance are between the Flyknit Lunar 1+, compared to Nike Air Max + 2013, running.

I can pretty much tell that the Air Max + is probably about as good as it gets (re: cushioning) just looking at the shoe, so I suspect that the Flyknit has less cushioning,...

So the question might be better asked in terms of how much less, i.e. half or three quarters, 50%, 75% as good, etc., and is the reduced cushioning and the lower weight worth the tradeoff.
(the difference in price is not of any concern)

Thanks.

In a way, you are comparing apples to oranges because the men's Nike Flyknit Lunar 1 + shoe has a totally different set up compared to the men's Nike Air Max + 2013 shoe. Like you stated, the Air Max series obviously uses a full-length Max Air™ unit for comfort, plus a cushioned midsole. Yet the Flyknit series is very comfortable as well and even with your percentages it is not fair to rate comfort because each of us has our own preferences. Some may feel the Flyknit has better comfort because of the Lunarlon cushioning system and the way the foam core works with a supportive, bottomless foam carrier to provide a lightweight, springy response. Plus the blown rubber forefoot lugs deliver a kind of cushioning in itself. Best thing to do is to try the styles on at an outlet if possible first if you are that undecided about the shoe's construction and comfort. You can always come back to the website to place an order if that is the cheapest way.
