I was walking around the mall yesterday and decided to drop by the Nike store to check if anything else has popped up that was of interest. And I saw these– the latest edition from the Nike LunarGlide+ series, the LunarGlide+ 4. With Flywire during the last Olympics, Nike reinvents the technology for a better fit and performance for the everyday runner. The Nike LunarGlide+ works for any type of distance, with the shoe fitting like a glove. The dynamic cables are strategically placed to move with the runner’s foot, offering support and comfort while minimizing the weight and bulk on the shoe
The LunarGlide+ is really the best of both worlds. You’ve got amazing fit and support on an unbelievable ride with the super responsive Lunarlon cushioning.
-Rob Williams, Sr. Footwear Designer for Nike Running
Like it’s predecessors, the LunarGlide+ 4 uses Lunarlon foam for a better, much more responsive cushioning. The Nike LunarGlide’s Dynamic Support system is a two-part midsole developed to provide superior stability and cushioning. Opposing wedges of foam (Lunarlon and firmer carrier foam) move the runner from soft to stable as the heel lands and the foot flexes down. The innovative system provides a gradual transition and a smooth ride for a variety of gaits.
With fit, support and stability in mind, Nikes designers made sure that they use latest and best possible technology into one shoe. Attached to the firmer foam carrier, the clip moves with the foot to help with the heel rolling inward or outward. Large expanses of single-layer engineered mesh provide ventilation and support where runners need it and give the shoe a purposefully smooth look. Designers also obsessed over style, and the Nike LunarGlide’s sleek look helps ensure a long run looks good, too.
The Nike LunarGlide+ is Nike+ enabled, meaning you can track the work you put in with every run or play. Out now with a variety of colorways, the Nike LunarGlide+ 4 retails for 5,795 php.
