Comments: I'm commenting a bit late since this model is soon to be replaced. However, the LG3 has become my main distance trainer. It is possibly the most elegant stability shoe Nike has ever made. The technology is applied in an economical manner. There aren't any flashy plastic pieces or trick components. It doesn't scream natural running like some of the latest shoes out there. Yet it is more streamlined than the LG1 or 2 while still offering enough support and cushioning for daily running. I am stocking up on these while I can because the LG4 appears to be a dramatic departure. Maybe in a couple years Nike will bring back the design concept of the LG3 because it seems that there are plenty of runners out there who have had success with this shoe.

Comments: Nike, why is the stack height on the medial side of the forefoot about 1/4 inch higher than it is on the lateral side of the forefoot? My only guess is that it mitigates over-pronation given that these are moderate support shoes. But if that's the case, maximum support shoes like the Asics Foundation 9 that I've used have the same stack height on both the lateral and medial sides. I can't help but think that this really is hurting the runner in the long run making them that much more dependent on shoes with a lateral, outwardly slanted design. With these shoes on, you're never truly walking or running on a flat surface. Don't want.

Comments: I'll agree with the other response that these shoes feel a little different from the first two versions of the LG. After a few runs they broke in and I like them better than the LG I & II. They have a slightly tighter forefoot and a more responsive sole. If you give them some time I think you'll be impressed.

Comments: I've been running in the LunarGlides since they were introduced. Four pairs of the LG1 and four pairs of the LG2. I assumed the LG3 would just be a natural progression and improvement. Instead, I got a totally different shoe that doesn't fit anything like the first two generations. The forefoot is totally cramped, and the heel cup is too shallow. After 8 pairs that all fit great, I can't get my foot to sit where I want it to and will have to go back to the LG2s while I can and start looking for a new shoe down the road. Nike has taken a good line and overtweaked it to the point where it bears little resemblance to the shoe and fit it began as.
