Nike Sportswear is set to drop an Air Max Lunar90 to commemorate the 45th Anniversary of man walking on the moon.

On July 20th, 1969 Neil Armstong became the first man to walk on the moon. In honor of this historic feat, Nike Sportswear has created a limited edition shoe to celebrate. Nicknamed the 'Moon Landing' edition, this Nike Air Max Lunar90 SP features a full 3M reflective upper with an all over moon graphic covering it. Representing the American flag is red and white stripes on the back right heel paired with blue and white stars on the back left heel. A speckled Lunarlon midsole and metallic gold Max Air unit in the heel finish these off.

The 'Moon Landing' Nike Air Max Lunar90 SP will hit nike.com as well as other select Nike Sportswear retailers such as Bodega on Sunday, July 20, in limited fashion.
