The LunarGlide 3 is a moderate featured, minimum support shoe designed for daily training and high mileage. It is built with a semi-curved shape.
- 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.
- Open mesh covering the upper provides great breathability.
- Dynamic Fit uses a supportive inner sleeve that wraps under the arch and around the midfoot for increased arch support and an adaptive fit.
- Microfiber Synthetic overlays in the forefoot wrap the upper around the foot for a snug fit.
- Heel Counter wraps the rearfoot and keeps the heel stable in the shoe.
- Dual Density sockliner is engineered for under foot support and cushioning.
