The LunarGlide 4 is a moderate featured, minimum support shoe designed for daily training and high mileage.


  • Lunarlon cushioning system uses a soft, durable foam core held inside of a supportive foam carrier to give lightweight, responsive cushioning. 


  • Dynamic Support layers the Lunarlon foam core with the Phylon carrier to produce a denser medial midsole to help reduce over pronation.
  • Crash pad at the bottom of the heel is a decoupled, gender-specific unit that reduces impact shock and corrects over pronation.
  • 360 degree Reflectivity covers the upper, making shoes highly visibility in low-light conditions.
  • Dynamic Fit uses a supportive inner sleeve that wraps under the arch and around the midfoot for increased arch support and an adaptive fit.
  • Evolved Flywire hugs the entire length of the foot offering lightweight support. 
  • Heel Counter wraps the rearfoot and keeps the heel stable in the shoe.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full-length Phylon, for enhanced cushioning and a soft underfoot feel.
  • H2O Repel Mesh is treated with DWR (durable water repellent) for a breathable and water-resistant shoe.
  • BRS 1000 carbon rubber provides durable traction.
  • Environmentally Preferred Rubber located in the forefoot provides multi-surface traction.
  • Flex Grooves are gender-specific for enhanced flexibility and heel-to-toe efficiency

Customer Reviews

Comments: Much better than the Original Lunar Glide.  For such a light and well cushioned shoe, the stability is outstanding.   I am an overpronator and can wear the LunarGlide 4 comfortably for my long runs.   Actually, it is pretty close to being a perfect, all around shoe.   It is light enough for racing and speed work outs as well.

I am surprised how durable this shoe has been.  After 135 miles the wear is minimal.         

The Flywire lacing system takes a little time to get used to.  You have to double knot the laces or they will come undone.   Also, you have to lace them up tighter when you first put them on because the lacing system will loosen up as you wear them,  even if they are double knotted.

The outsoles tend to pick up small stones.  So, this may not be an ideal shoe if you run on trails. 

Just a great all around shoe!

Comments: By far, my favorite version of the LunarGlide to date. Fit is greatly improved, especially in the forefoot. Shoe feels lighter than previous versions. My only complaint is the traction in wet weather. On a wet asphalt road these shoes slip very easily. They lose grip so easily I will not wear them on wet pavement. Poor wet weather traction is pretty surprising for a company based in the Pacific Northwest. I hope this is corrected in upcoming versions.

Comments: Definitely an improvement over the Lunarglide 3s.  Lighter, more breathable. Nice cushioning but not too cush. Great training shoe for mild overpronators.
