CUSHIONING

  • Lunarlon cushioning system uses a soft, durable foam core held inside of a supportive foam carrier to give lightweight, responsive cushioning.
MIDSOLE
  • 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 LunarLite foam core with a Phylon carrier to produce a denser medial midsole, helping to reduce over pronation.
  • Molded sipes throughout the midsole and outsole enhance flexibility.
UPPER
  • Engineered mesh comprises the upper, providing lightweight breathability.
  • Flywire around the midfoot and heel is made of high tensile strength fibers layered between TPU and foam for a strong, lightweight, and dynamic fit.
  • Microfiber Synthetic overlays in the forefoot wrap the upper around the foot for a snug fit.
  • EVA sockliner is shaped to mimic the curvature of the heel and medial arch for increased comfort and support.
OUTSOLE
  • BRS 1000 carbon rubber provides durable traction.
  • Duralon uses blown rubber in the forefoot under the metatarsal area for improved cushioning.
  • Kurim is a lightweight rubber dot pattern in the forefoot for increased grip and flexibility.

Comments: I like the lunar material and looked for a new model after the LunarElite was discontinued (still using my 10th pair).  I have 49 miles in the Lunarspeed and they are working well.  Works well on road and off.  Used them for runs up to 6 miles and intervals on a track.  Needed to adjust to fix after running in the same model for so long, but not an issue.

Comments: Pretty solid shoe after 3 workouts in them.  I have always been a fan of the lunar material and this shoe hasn't dissapointed in that aspect.  Shoe feels light and like an extension of my foot.  Great with a mid-foot strike and still OK with a heel strike.  Very responsive and easy to run fast in.  The toe box is fairly narrow but stretches out
well with my wide foot.  The laces are too short to lace up all of the way which is fine by me because I find it a much more comfortable to not lace the top holes.

Comments: really good running shoe. I am training for New England with my team and we are the favorite. I am going to be a sophmore who break 4:45 in mile and needed trainers that were light but also had cushioning. Bought these and I have never felt better in shoes. These could be worn for 7 mile runs for 55 miles a week such as what i am doing and also for workouts the only thing that compares to it is the nike lunarracer. love these shoes

Comments: Best fitting shoe for me, aside from the Nike Free 3.0's sock-like fit.  I needed a light, minimal, yet still cushioned shoe, with plenty of traction.  I took them out, initially for a 5-mile run, but they felt so great i continued on.  No blisters or discomfort from what ended up being 14 mile run.  So far, I have logged 100 miles and they're still like new. Maybe I am lighter on my feet than the previous reviewer because the soles seem to be pretty durable.  These are great for training and for some, racing.

Comments: Not a well made shoe.  Very low heel cup causes the foot to slip in the back.  I took this shoe on one 7 mile run and finished with blisters on both heels and and both small toes.  The sole is not very durable, as it consists of small slivers of rubber in the forefoot that were nearly gone by the end of my run. I don't think it would have lasted a week before they were all gone.
