The Nike Lunar shoes have been a work in progress, leapfrogging innovation with minor modifications and adjustments. The LunarGlide+ 2 takes the platform and philosophy of the original and refines the final product.
The upper has been tailored for a better fit and a new configuration of Flywire in the midfoot provides support that holds the foot securely so it doesn’t slide around inside the open forefoot, a weakness of the initial round. The midsole and ride will be familiar as the Lunarlon foam and components have been retained in their original form. The outersole is essentially unchanged, providing a good combination of traction and durability. The improvements to the upper, the continued great ride, and the welcome price freeze all contribute to earning the LunarGlide+ 2 honors as our Best Shoe in the Motion Stabilizing category.
“Love the way they fit—nice and smooth, and hug your foot and arch. Super light, springy feeling while I run, but they still have plenty of cushion and support. The stability of the shoes is good. They cinch up around my foot nicely and hold it in place quite well.”
