Kick Drop: Ellie Goulding x Nike FlyKnit Lunar1+


Ladies, synthpop goddess Ellie Goulding is repping for the female sneakerheads with the premiere of her self-designed Nike FlyKnit Lunar1+.

Revealed in an exclusive report from Nylon Mag today (April 3), the Ellie Goulding x Nike FlyKnit Lunar1+s are a combination of style, comfort, and athletic appeal. Here’s more on the drop, via Nylon:

“The shoes, which will have an ultra limited edition run (as in, if you’re not besties with the musician, you probably aren’t getting a pair) and literally were just produced, are already a favorite of Goulding’s. “They’re amazing and so comfortable–I don’t want to take them off!” she told NYLON exclusively. “It was incredible to have the chance to collaborate with the Nike design team. I was able to learn more about FlyKnit, and had the chance to choose the colors for the shoe as well as incorporate personal touches of my life as a recording artist.”

So, what’s Goulding’s favorite feature on her very own sneaker, you ask? Of course it’s the subtle nod to her highly successful album, Halcyon—which is adorned coming down the back of the shoe on a pink heel tab.

These will be a super exclusive run (no pun intened), but try your best to look out for these. Also, catch Ellie participating in Nike’s Women’s Half Marathon in Washington, D.C. later this month—with an accompanying remix album of Halcyon, presented by Nike, to drop on April 15.
