Nike unveils the new Nike Lunar Ballistec

We previewed it a few weeks ago, Nike officially unveiled it today: the Nike Lunar Ballistec, the new Rafael Nadal signature shoe.

“Our primary objective was to design a revolutionary Nike Tennis shoe that makes players faster to the ball,” said Michael Hui, Senior Designer of Tennis Footwear at Nike. “It wasn’t about making a shoe lighter at all costs. We wanted to add to the superb durability, support and cushioning that existed in our tennis footwear to create a shoe that would improve our athlete’s ability to compete and win.”

“I love the Nike Lunar Ballistec because it’s so light. It gives you quickness in the feet so you can be explosive when changing direction without worrying about losing control,” said Victoria Azarenka. “We play on all kinds of hard surfaces so to have that type of comfort and protection is a game changer.”

The new Nike Lunar Ballistec for men and women launches globally on Nike.com and at select retailers worldwide beginning January 2, 2014.
