    Comments about Womens Nike LunarElite+ Running Shoe:

    I was looking for a replacement for the Mizuno Nexus 3, [...]. The sales person put me in the Nike LunarElites and I was amazed at how they felt similar to the Nexus. I've put about 60 miles on them now and they feel and respond better than the Nexus. I like the lower to the ground feel, the responsiveness, and a touch of support. A wonderful tempo shoe!

    Comments about Womens Nike LunarElite+ Running Shoe:

    This is probably a super chick statement, but because the shoes are so cute and mostly white, they get dirty really easily. Scuffs from the gym wall are immediately apparent. I leave them for the gym just to keep them in good condition and rock the treadmill for my runs with them.

    Comments about Womens Nike LunarElite+ Running Shoe:

    I just purchased these because my Asics Kayanos felt too heavy and bulky and unresponsive. I wanted lighter, faster shoes for speed work and races. This shoe does not disappoint! I feel fast in these shoes, they have good energy return to propel me along. However, as a performance shoe, I do not think these will be ideal for me for long races like 1/2 marathons and marathons. I'm just used to more heel cushioning. But for 5K and 10K training and races, they are great. They feel so light! I wore a 10 in Asics and a 10 works well in these. (I go up a whole size in running shoes from my street shoe size.)

        I use this shoes for up to 8 mile runs and plan on running a half marathon in them. I do all my walking in them as well. This shoe moves and bends with my foot. There is enough padding for my sensitive feet but not too much to inhibit movement. Great shoe. I plan on purchasing another pair.

          I am training for a few 5K's and a half-marathon this year and needed a new shoe to add into my rotation. So far I really like these shoes. They are super comfy and easy to run in. I overpronate but so far these shoes are working out.

          They are a BRIGHT WHITE though which is probably the only thing I do not like about them b/c chances are I will get them very dirty, very quickly :)

              Comments about Womens Nike LunarElite+ Running Shoe:

              I'm 31, female, and I started running a year and a half ago. I use the shoes only for running and do only 10-15 miles per week, mostly blacktop. I started running with an earlier version of this shoe that never let me down. At first, this new shoe/newer version didn't feel as if it had the same amount of cushion and padding inside, so I was a little worried at first but I've had no issues. The sole feels slightly more rigid than the earlier version but it isn't taxing my foot. I mildly-moderately over pronate and the shoe really helps correct me. I've been comfortable and injury free with this shoe.

                  I love the Lunar Elite's, I never thought I would be a Nike fan but after my body had enough of continuously breaking down I took the plunge and tried something new. I always wore neutral Asics before, but the steady increase of more training began taking a toll on my form and body's response to running. So, I read some great reviews and decided to test the Lunar Elite's, I LOVE THEM! They're durable, comfortable and they handle all conditions- rain, sleet, heat and snow! Plus, I love the color choices too! Great job Nike, and thank you RRS for providing these shoes to your loyal customers!

This shoe is great, very lightweight, awesome support, and fits great to the foot. I just ran my 4th half marathon with this shoe and it was like running on clouds - no blisters and no pain!

                      I run 45-50 miles per week. I recently retired shoes that have been discontinued. This is the shoe that supposedly replaced my old favorites. I overall like this shoe. I will continue to run in them for my shorter runs. They rub the outside of my ankle bone because side of the shoe comes up too high. I have never experienced this problem before with any other shoe. I will not buy another pair of these when it is time to retire them for this most uncomfortable reason. I have changed brands for my longer runs (anything over an hour)

                        I wear these for work. They comfort my feet after a long run. And I am on my feet all day so my toes need some loving.

                          My favorite running shoe has been discontinued so I've been reading reviews trying to select something new. I'm training for a marathon but like a flatter, faster feeling shoe. Out of the box they felt fantastic and I broke them in on an 8 mile run and had no problems. They are wonderful!

                            This is a great shoe. They are comfortable right out of the box. They are very light weight and I felt like I was running faster than I ever had before. Plus they are super cute!

                            I got the Lunar Elite in place of my Lunar Glides, which I loved!!! I am going to switch back toLunar Glide 2. Although recommended to buy 1/2 size up, I felt that the shoe was really baggy up front. I never got blisters before this!
                            I felt this shoe lacked support for long runs of over 12-15 miles. I have run many a plus 20 miler in Lunar Glide and felt awesome. Soooo, not my ideal shoe for an endurance trainer.

                            As usual, service at Raod Runner is impeccable!
                            I love being a VIP and shopping here. Road Runner rocks, and although I wasn't happy with this product, the service and delivery were an A+!

                                I love this shoe. I had recently made a switch from the Asics 2150, and was looking for something to run in that didn't rub on my arch or force me to run in an un-natural way. These fit the mold. Out of the box they felt great and on the road I felt like I was going faster than I have in years....and I was!

                                  I recently used these shoes in the LA marathon. They feel so light weight I felt like I was flying. I was hesitant to wear these shoes in the marathon not having used them for a long run, but they felt great!!! My feet felt supported, but not weighed down. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a fast time.
