Great series shoe

Comments about Mens Nike LunarGlide 8 Running Shoe:

Marathon runner. I have run in the LunarGlide series for quite some time off and on. This shoe gives me a comfortable wrapped feeling in the foot. Since I am a heel striker I have to use cushioned after market insoles with all my shoes, these especially. Definitely go 1/2 size larger with the LunarGlides. One problem I have had with them is heel wear.

A great improvement from the previous version. Feels more stable, yet maintains the cushioning effect of the previous version.

Comments about Mens Nike LunarGlide 8 Running Shoe:

very good cushioning, but almost too "squishy." Worried about the durability of this shoe as does not have much rubber at all on the oursole-just lunarlon. Very comfortable upper. The Lunarglide 7 was a 5 star shoe- the 8 seems to have taken a backslide.

Comments about Mens Nike LunarGlide 8 Running Shoe:

The Lunar Glide has been my favorite Nike shoe for a few years now, but I'm not crazy about this new update. In general, I think they changed too much. The forefoot cushioning and overall support seems to be diminished. The shoe doesn't seem like it would last very long and be that durable, but you get the feeling that's what Nike wants. Also, the laces that came with this were ridiculously short. I have noticed that RRS incorrectly advises you to "go 1/2 size up" for almost all of their shoes, but in this case I think that's correct. This model seems to run small. Also, rocks do get easily lodged in the sole. Hey, the color choices are pretty cool at least. I really wanted to like this shoe, but its just not cushioned, and supportive enough for me. It just doesn't feel like a legit running shoe from Nike.

    Comments about Mens Nike LunarGlide 8 Running Shoe:

    I wanted to try the new 8's as the 7's I have are good for short runs, but I needed more room in the toe box for longer runs, especially as the weather here in the Upper Peninsula actually begins to imitate summer. As my second toe is longer than my big toe, I need to have room at the front of the shoe beyond the end of my big toe. I wish most shoe companies would square off rather than taper the toe box, and that is a complaint I have with almost any shoe. I run mostly on road shoulders, asphalt, and trails. I am also middle aged and 180lbs. I've run for decades now, though I am not a high mileage guy. I like a more padded shoe and the Lunarglides have always provided that. The new bottom sole gave me some concern as the way it flexes make it appear that it could be a stone magnet. I ran on trails the other day and had no problems with picking up stones in the sole. On the road I would definitely say that this shoe provides a lot of padding. To me there was less road feel than with the Lunarglide 7's, but at my age and weight if I wanted to feel the road, I'd buy a different shoe! The feel is springy and not spongy. I listed "average" for arch support. I wear orthotics in my shoes so my arch support comes from those. The shoes were instantly comfortable and I ran eight miles comfortably in them on a combination of asphalt road and trails. In dress shoes I wear a 10.5, but I purchased 11s in this shoe for the reason listed above. I had plenty of room at the front of the shoe. I also think this toe box is more tapered than the previous model so you might want to consider this if you have a similarly long second toe. The mesh on this model seems sturdier as well. I tore the mesh on my sevens when I kicked a stone on a trail. So far I like the shoe and would recommend that folks looking for a padded ride give these a try.
