Comeback: Nike Lunar Gato II 2019 Indoor Boots Released

Update: The boots are now available to buy.

Almost two months sooner than expected, Nike today confirmed the return of the iconic LunarGato II indoor football boots after they were shelved in 2014. Combining dark grey and red, the first Nike Lunar Gato 2 2019 boots will go on sale on February 18.

The LunarGato II soccer shoes will be headlined by Portuguese futsal legend Ricardinho, who has been named Best Player of the World six time - more than any other player.

“I’m really happy to see the boot back again. The best moments in my career happened while I was wearing these,” Ricardinho says. “My style on pitch is fast, and these boots are perfect to stop and start. The Lunar sole feels very responsive and helps me while braking and changing pace. My whole foot feels grounded and the stability is great.”

A clean look for its debut, the new Lunar Gato shoes are predominantly dark grey with red accents in the form of the laces, the lining around the collar and on the inside, as well as the Swoosh. The sole unit is white in the back and translucent at the front.

Tech-wise, the 2019 Nike Lunar Gato shoes are entirely the same as the ones that were discontinued almost five years before. They feature a Lunarlon midsole and a super-soft goat leather upper for the front part. The rear is made out of more durable, less stretchy synthetic materials and additionally features mesh panels for improved breathability.
