Review: Nike Lunarglide running sneakers for men & women

Lunar_Glide_M_0174_01a.jpg

Nike’s new Lunarglide running shoes are awesome. They’re lightweight and super flexible, and Steven and I felt a definite extra bounce in our step when we ran with these shoes vs our dinky old kicks. The women’s model has extra foam under the heel and stretchy material at the toes because we tend to have wider forefeet. It has a slot under the in-sole for a Nike Plus sensor. Neither of us had any foot pains throughout our week of testing running gear.

Price: $100
Release date: July 2009

    I agree with #3, these are still pretty freakin’ ugly… But probably the least ugly Nike I’ve seen in a while.

    But the big question – does anyone know if these contain any leather?

    All sneakers/trainers look like they are from the future or the past, never from now.

    It eludes me how people get excited about these ghastly stink pods.

    These are nowhere near as offensive as most but they are still repellent.

    I hate the Nike brand, but on occasion they turn out a nice looking shoe. This is one of them. (I’m also a fan of the aforementioned Nike+.

  4. The nike lunarglide is a great shoe: only 300 grams for all that cushioning is amazing – and 100$ is a very competitive price, for a shoe with lunar foam and flywire.

    you can check a detailed review with video on running shoes guru !

    Sexy. Hope they come in wide sizes, I’m due to replace my Mizuno’s. Nike shoes are always too narrow for me.

    These runners are very ugly; HOWEVER, they are great! I usually don’t like Nike cuz they run narrow, again – these shoes fit awesome, running the first time was like running in shoes i’ve worn for months already….great comfort, a great shoe if you can get over the eye sore!!! LOL
