Comments about Mens Nike LunarEclipse+ Running Shoe:

Full disclosure --- I went to my local RRS store and picked these up because of all the hype surrounding it. I'd always been a New Balance fan, and have really enjoyed the 1225 as my most recent high-mileage training shoe.

When I tried the LunarEclipse on in the store, they were extremely comfortable. If the only thing I ever did in them was stand and walk, these would undoubtedly be great for that purpose. For running, however, I'm still not quite sure how I feel about them. Out of the box, the toebox felt somewhat narrow for my feet.. and this is keeping in mind that I went ½ size up based on the in-store rep's recommendation. This initial pressure has somewhat alleviated itself now that I've put about 50 miles on them --- perhaps they required a good break-in --- but it's still a snug fit for sure.

Heel hold is relatively good. I get slight heel lift from time to time in my right shoe (so I lace up tighter), but that is probably due to the fact that my right foot is just slightly smaller than my left foot.

The cushioning is too soft for my taste. Whereas the toe-off in my 1225's was firm and responsive, the Lunar sole feels a little mushy. My understanding of the Lunar sole technology was that it would "adjust" to your running style to provide support, but even on my tempo runs, I felt like I was running on pillows.

With that said, the shoes definitely feel "springy"… and I could notice a significant difference in my leg turnover right off the bat. The shoes feel light, and for what it's worth, my avg mile pace improved by over 30 seconds in the 2 weeks I've been using them.

I'm going to give them more time before deciding whether to keep them or bring them back to the store and try something else. I've questioned whether my discomfort (not pain) with the sneaker is just due to being able to run faster in them. After all, it's hard to argue with the results. For reference, I'm a very efficient, mid-weight runner (165 lbs) and put in about 20 miles per week on average.

Comments about Mens Nike LunarEclipse+ Running Shoe:

I been running for a while now and I was running on Brooks Trance 9, great shoe, I dont have a negative thing to say about them. I went in to RRS to replace my Brooks because I could feel pain on my knees and quads, figured it was time to retire the Brooks. Now normally I am not a Nike person, but the saels person brought them out along with the Brooks Trance 10, and two other pairs of shoes. I tried the Nikes first, and was impressed by them, I then proceeded to try the rest of the shoes they brought out, and I kept going back to the Nike simply because i felt more comfortable in the Nikes. I was running 3 miles a day on the Brooks, but I felt I couldnt push myself more because of the knee pain I was feeling. Went out on my first run on the Nikes and I ran close to 5 miles with no pain. I am amazed that the this shoe would allow me to increase the distance. The LE+ feel soft but not too soft, they feel stable but not too much, at times I forget how many miles I have ran simlpy because I am enjoying my run so much!

Comments about Mens Nike LunarEclipse+ Running Shoe:

Totally different kind of Stability + shoe. The cushioning is very bouncy. At first I felt that the forefoot cushioning was flat like you were running on a thick squishy pancake but after a bit of break in time(30 miles or so) I either adapted or the cushioning formed to my feet. I love the shoes now. They do seem to wear more quickly than the Nike Zoom equalons I usually buy but not nearly as fast as the original Lunar Shoes from a few years ago. I run 30-40 miles per week and will prob have to buy 4 pairs of these per year. That being said, the expirience in them is great. I just bought my 2nd pair of Lunar Eclipses today so I can run in soft Lunar comfort every day.

    Comments about Mens Nike LunarEclipse+ Running Shoe:

    I first wrote a report on these shoes in November. I complained of the lack of responsiveness but I have gotten over that. They have proven to be incredibly durable and the comfort is unmatched. I was using these as back up shoes since I still preferred my Nike Zoom Equalons. Then I developed a Knee injury caused by bone spurs. I switched to the Lunar Eclipse because of the better cushioning and the knee pain went away. I still ware the Equalons 2-3 time a week and no longer notice a huge difference in the responsiveness. I love these shoes.

      Comments about Mens Nike LunarEclipse+ Running Shoe:

      I've been conservative when it comes to changing running shoe brands/models. I was intrigued by the reviews on the LunarEclipse+, and RR's return policy gave me the freedom to try them. These are the best running shoes I've tried. The spring these shoes provides was obvious from the start. I've completed a few long runs in them at this point, and I'm enjoying how they feel and work. For a stability shoe, they offer a rare feeling of freedom. I highly recommend others give them a try. With RoadRunner's great customer service and return policy, it's worth knowing if they'll work as well for you.

        5'6" 160 lbs. mid-overpronator.

        I'm usually the type of runner that runs heavy on my feet for my height and weight with a good amount of overpronating. Previously ran fine in Equalons 3 & 4, but these things are amazingly supportive. I found that the heel band support mechanism supports the rolling of my ankle VERY well. At first, I would only do short 5Ks with them, but over this past weekend, I just did a 10 miler with no problems at all whatsoever.

        For 10 miles and under, I'll definitely run in these, but for more than 10 miles, I'll probably stick with the Equalons.

        I'm a longtime runner with a bunch of marathons and ultras behind me. Over this time I never any problem with my feet until (while not training for anything in particular) I recently developed plantar faciatis. I'd been running in the Brooks Adrenaline GTS for years (Cascadia for trails), so I thought it ws time for a switch when I got back on my feet. I hadn't run in Nikes since high school, but decided to give these a try - all I can say is WOW!

        These are, hands-down, the best running shoes I've ever owned. Not only is the support super comfortable and effective (even for a flat-footer like me), but these shoes are mond-bogglingly easy to run fast in. Again, wow..I mean, wow.

          I just started running, so lately I've been running between 16-20 miles a week. I sat down and did a little research on my foot type, running style, and supports. Everything pointed torwards the Lunar Eclipse for my average arches and heavy strides. Support was everywhere I needed it to be so after running my legs didn't feel sore or my usual case of the shin splints didn't occur. So I'm very pleased with my Lunar Eclipse running shoe.

          I am 5'11 165bls with a moderate over pronation and run 30-40 miles per week. I bought a pair of these shoes mainly because they look good and hoped Nike had improved their support features. They have not. The shoes provided a very cushioned ride, almost "squishy" but with no medial post, they offer little support for my/any pronation. I had to order another pair of shoes a few weeks latter. Back to the Asics.

          I use these shoes for my long runs on the weekend. Lunarglides started to hurt my feet in runs over 10 miles. The Lunareclipse solved that for me. They are surprising durable even though there is exposed lunarlon foam in the forefoot. I have well over 200miles on my old pair and they have much more tread left than lunarglide at the same distance. If you heel strike you will find this a very soft ride.
          Downside, small rocks can get wedged in the lunarlon in the forefoot. They also look really tacky with jeans when you break them in walking around in them.

              I almost shed a tear when putting these shoes on. Most shoes I've tried didn't provide enough cushion at the balls of the feet. These shoes provide the perfect amount in that area. Love the heel clip too. Furthermore, they look amazing. Most running shoes don't have much style but these definitely do. Amazing! Must try for yourself.

                This shoe has definitely made my transition into running super smooth! I was originally running in Air Max's that were a few years old, and had a running analysis done at a Road Runner store locally. I found out I needed the stability+ shoes, and these have been great, no complaints at all. I typically run on the road, hills, stairs, and these are perfect for any job really. I will definitely buy these again when the time comes, unless they come out with a newer version!

                  I was running in Asics for 6 straight shoes and 5 Straight Marathons. After my knees started hurting and my legs just not feeling right, I went back to RRS and tried something new. I have not run in Nikes since I threw away the old Shox. What a difference the Lunar Eclipss were! Lightweight, felt like I was running in socks, yet very stable when pounding the pavement. Excellent shoe.

                    I ran ten miles on a treadmill right outta the box in these. Super awesome! Then I did a 10 miler on the lakefront in Chicago a couple days ago... Amazing. Make sure you buy a 1/2 size up. I love how your heel is locked in. Great fit. Very nice cushion and stability. I only gave it four stars, because I wish it was just a little lighter.

                      Ran my last 200 miles in 2010 air max which I like. These shoes are quite cushioned as well but feel faster and lighter. First shoe with lunar sole and I like it. Might try less cushioning next time. First 5 miles have earned these a spot in the rotation. Would buy again
