Review – Nike LunarGlide 7
Category : Running Shoes
Product : Nike LunarGlide 7
The Nike LunarGlide 7 is for those runners looking for a lightweight shoe that offers a reliable combination of stability and cushioning to assist with overpronation.
Anyone looking to buy the Nike LunarGlide 7 can be assured that the shoes are fit and adaptive to any athletic activity. Essentially a neutral-running shoe, the Nike LunarGlide 7 proves to be a versatile option.
The Nike LunarGlide is suitable for terrains such as track, gravel and road. The shoe has a carbon rubber inset that gives durable traction which makes it suitable for wet surfaces as well.
Arch support and pronation control
The LunarGlide 7 offers a good blend of stability for those who tend to overpronate with plenty of cushioning for a smooth ride. In addition, this running shoe also helps reduce moderate overpronation.
Heel to toe drop
With a high heel to toe drop, the LunarGlide 7 is not advised for someone who enjoys barefoot running. Even though the LunarGlide has a high heel to toe drop, it offers a responsive transition throughout a runner’s gait. The men’s version measures 11.1 mm, while the women’s version measures 10.1 mm.
The key updates were the addition of the Engineered Mesh on the toe box and Flyknit upper from the heel to midfoot. The change in the design and materials delivers a lighter and more breathable upper while offering a secure and comfortable fit. The shoe has a plastic heel counter which delivers stability in the rear of the shoe for increased support and control for the runner through the entire stride.
One of the downsides of using the Nike LunarGlide 7 is that it has a high heel to toe drop. Most runners prefer to have a running shoe with a low drop because this enables them to experience barefoot or minimalist running.
An almost perfect manifestation of an excellent stability running trainer is the LunarGlide 7, which definitely has more improved features than that of the models that came before it. Some of these improved features include the type of cushioning which has been regarded as softer, which is actually ideal for long distance running or high mileage training and heightened durability features.
