Womens Nike LunarGlide 8

Overview

A well-cushioned shoe that, for something so light, is surprisingly supportive. For a good price, you can plenty of Nike technology. For racers looking for something equally light and supportive, give the Asics DS Trainer 21 a look .

First Impressions

For something so soft looking, does it really provide support? You can’t help but ask that as it’s a shoe not that far removed from looking like a pair of comfortable loafers. Certainly it says get these on and run fast, but what you’ll really want to know is just how comfortable and supportive that experience will be.

Sole Unit

The Lunarlon sole certainly provides some great cushioning and is light in weight so good news there. The LunarGlide has had some minor upgrades here and there which in fact our test team report means it’s not quite as cushioned as previous versions. The plus side is the denser outsole foam adapts to each individual’s running style and the width of the sole means runners are operating from a massively stable platform. The 10mm heel to toe drop is perfect and the shoe offers plenty of confidence thanks to a good grip.

Upper

Nike have got fit down to a fine art and the Flymesh and flywire keeps foot locked in really well. 

The fully engineered mesh upper is very breathable

Elsewhere, the external plastic heel counter seen in previous models has gone although not at the expense of  stability. This is still a shoe that works well for pronators.

Overall

Nice looking, always a bonus, the Lunarlon outsole has a good, responsive feel to it. One or two of our testing team felt it was a little harder than previous shoes but that didn’t mean it isn’t up to racing a 10km, or more likely getting you through a Sunday morning 10-miler with some mates with nothing untoward to report. For such a good looking shoe, it’s surprisingly down to earth in what it delivers – stability, cushioning and speed.
