Nike presents the new Lunarspeed Lite+ Ekiden collection, celebrating the upcoming Hakone Ekiden, a collegiate contest that pits the Tokyo region's best college running clubs against each other in a two-day, 217.9km race. Following last year's Lunarspider R 2 Ekiden release, the newest Ekiden collection utilizes the Lunarspeed Lite+, a lightweight, Lunarlon-cushioned runner. Waseda, Toyo, Komazawa, Josai and Kanagawa are all represented in the collection.

The Nike Lunarspeed Lite+ Ekiden collection will release next month at select Nike retail doors, including Nike Harajuku.
