2002 is the year when Nike entered the skateboarding scene. They focused on Dunks, and adapted them for skateboarding. Then, quite a few technical models have been made with fancy features like the Zoom Tre or Zoom FP. But despite these new features, skateboarders didn’t really eat them up. Hopefully, these Lunar Oneshots change that. It looks plain and simple from the outside, but if you'll dig deeper, you will find a whole bag of technical features. Check out Nike SB's latest offering, the Nike SB Lunar Oneshot which we had the pleasure of weartesting for you.
The Nike SB Lunar Oneshot fits true to size.
Generally speaking, its highly durable unlike the Janoskis. It has 2 parts, sewn together at the overlap from front foot area to the sidewall. The shoe's toe area was designed to avoid contact with griptape, and even when it does, Nike SB's Hyperscreen coating is there to protect it. It's a synthetic layer on the shoe that decreases abrasion and improves the durability of the suede. Its sole is made out of Nike’s Lunarlon foam, which has been proven also to be extremely durable with great grip.
Cushioning is good. Its Lunarlon sole is very lightweight and improves cushioning, even though it’s very thin in the toe-area.
It's not for those who have wide feet. It has this slimly shaped silhouette to ensure a tight and snug fit for our toes and our frontfoot. Cons - its heel does not feature any foam padding and it doesn´t fit perfectly to your heel and ankle.
Boardfeel and Grip
It offers great boardfeel! It has a very flexible sole that adapts to your foot’s concave. It's nearly comparable to vulc shoe models without being to gooey.
Comfort and stability
Nike SB is known for these stuff as they always put a lot of effort into designing comfy shoes. Nike SB Lunar Oneshot is no exception. The shoe is extremely light and features this shoe-in-shoe technology, you will hardly find any seams inside and the shoe fits very snug to your feet. We like the ventilation (heel and toe) also as it improves comfort in a skate shoe. The shoe kept its shape during our testing. Its heel seems to be supported by plastic features.
The Nike SB Lunar Oneshot is a good skate shoe. It makes use of innovative sole technology to provide great balance between cushioning, grip and boardfeel. It has minor weaknesses though when it comes to the durability of the upper material.
