Nike to Bring Back Iconic Lunar Gato Boots

Nike will bring back one of its most iconic and popular indoor football boots, the Lunar Gato. In a spectacular and unforeseen move by the brand, the Lunar Gato II will be relaunched in at least two colorways in spring next year.

The Nike Lunar Gato was a staple of the brand's small-sided lineup up until it was killed off in late 2014, shortly after the high-cut 'Elastico Superfly' was launched.

While the move back then was meant to assimilate Nike's offerings for the small and full sized pitches, there might be a slightly reversal incoming here.

But let's talk about the 2019 Nike Lunar Gato boots. Interestingly, Nike will not launch a new generation here, but simply bring back the same Lunar Gato II that people have come to love back in the day.

The only new thing about the Nike Lunar Gato 2019 indoor soccer shoes will be the colorways, but all features and their construction stay 100% the same.
