Shoe Review: Nike Lunar Glide

After wearing my new Nike Lunar Glides ($100) around the house to break them in, I took them on all sorts of runs while visiting the East Coast.

These shoes are light — one sneaker is just barely over half a pound (8.75 ounces according to my kitchen scale) — so they are great for traveling as well as running. Nike considers them stability shoes, meaning they help prevent overpronation, rolling too far to the inside of the foot. As one prone to overpronate, I was curious to try these sneakers out, since they rely on "dynamic support" technology rather than a lot of extra bulk to buttress the arch. Learn what I thought of these shoes when you

.

Not only do I think these running shoes are cute — a hard thing to accomplish in white sneakers — I think they are super comfy to boot. They provide a lot of cushion in the forefoot, so the ball of my foot felt quite cushioned when running. I paid a lot of attention to my stride in these shoes, so much so it's lucky I didn't run into a stop sign. I couldn't feel myself overpronating and I couldn't feel the shoes really correcting my gait. But my knees, feet, and ankles felt great post-run, so I think the Lunar Glide's dynamic support kept my alignment spot on. The toe box is a bit roomier than other Nikes I have worn.

The extra arch support, which you can adjust by tying your shoes tighter, is helpful as is the "bunion" cutout. I ran with these shoes in the rain, on flats, and on a couple of hill workouts, and I loved them. I do think the insole should be a bit beefier, though. If you need motion-control shoes, the Lunar Glide will probably not provide enough support, but for neutral runners whose form wanes as the miles add up, this shoe will work for you. They are also Nike+ compatible and run a bit small, so if you're in between sizes, I would go up a half size.

Thanks for the review, I wear Asics but considering trying new shoes after some foot injuries. Was looking at Newtons, but will have to check out these as well. Any Newton runners out there w/ thoughts on their shoes?

would rather read and learn for myself, then trust a random, possibly biased "expert" at a shoe store. I do agree that you shouldn't order on the internet, unless you don't mind returning them if they aren't right for you. I don't know why you are putting expert in quotation marks. At my local running store the employees are all runners - and have been for years. Many of them ran at the college level. And when I started trying on shoes, they brought all types of brands -- Asics, Nike, New Balance, Saucony, Brooks, etc. They've never pushed a certain shoe on me. In fact, when I liked two pairs equally, they told me to get the cheaper ones. For most people, buying running shoes off of the internet without having a chance to try them on is a bad idea.

I don't break-in my shoes either. But I only wear my new shoes for 8-10 mile run, not for a long run.

I agree. Proper running shoes should work out of the box. I don't "break" any footwear in...

No, Fit, it's a myth that you need to 'break in' running shoes. they should fit and be comfortable from the first run. I only wear mine when I'm running and only then !
