Comments about Mens Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2 Running Shoe:

I bought these shoes because I could get them in all black and they were level 5 nuetral running shoes. My intention was to use them for walking and meetings while I travel abroad and then use them as my daily running shoes when I returned. The shoes that I normally use are vomeros or saucony ISO. These are too soft, more like a Hoka, and don't offer enough stability for me. I will be returning them, but the are very nice looking, Just not comfortable as what I usually wear and very little stability

Comments about Mens Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2 Running Shoe:

While the forefoot has solid cushioning, the heel seems much less cushioned. I do like the "sock" feel of the shoe, but the firm feel of the heel means that I will be returning these.

      Great all around workout and casual sneaker

      By Nicholas

      Comments about Mens Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2 Running Shoe:

      I use these shoes for running (mainly treadmill). The first time I wore them I used for some HIIT work (box jumps, push ups, burpees and thrusters). Initially, I was skeptical because a lot of reviewers complained about the sneaker being narrow or tight for people with wide feet. I have wide and flat feet. When I put it on it felt tight which validated everyone's complaints. However, after a few adjustments the shoe is not comfortable and I love running in them. The main adjustment was that the laces were too tight. I loosened them up and it resolved 75% of the tightness. The next thing I did was change my socks from Nike Elite basketball socks (thick and padded) to my ultra thin Road Runner Sports running socks. I love these sneakers and highly recommend them. I am a semi-sneaker head and I have a lot of sneakers. I have been running with the first version of this shoe for over a year and my most favorite aspect is the "uni-tongue" on the new version. Between these and the Adidias Ultra Boost I think the Ultra Boost is a little more comfortable. However, these sneakers are lighter and the outsole is not as thick. Lastly, these shoes look great with Nike apparel.

        Very comfortable but they squeak like crazy. The bottom of the shoe has concentric grooves in it that run against each other and make a squeaking sound every time I step. Annoying as neck, but other than that, I love these shoes.

        Well, this is why I pay the money for RoadRunner VIP and the 90 day return policy ...............

        50 or so miles later and these are still painfully narrow. Again, compared to my Nike Flyknit Epic Low 1 and Adidas Ultraboost these are unquestionably narrower in the forefoot and have not loosened up with mileage. Note: all 3 were ordered 1/2 size up from my usual.

        Mine are being returned. HOWEVER, if you do not have a wide forefoot these are certainly worth a try since they have a lot going for them

        Comments about Mens Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2 Running Shoe:

        I really wanted to like this shoe, but as others have mentioned, the sizing is odd. The shoe is narrow and runs 1/2 to a full size too small. That said, if you can get a pair that fits, they are comfortable and reasonably stable for a neutral shoe. The outsole is similar to the LunarEpic 1 and LunarGlide 8 which means it will pick up debris and isn't as durable as blown rubber soles.

        Comments about Mens Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2 Running Shoe:

        Love them for the comfort, but size is way off. Not sure if it's my high instep or width or both. I bought 1/2 size up but very hard to get on and tight. I'll have to buy a shoe horn. Worried my little toes will push through.

          Comments about Mens Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2 Running Shoe:

          I've owned several iterations of Flyknit shoes --- including the Flyknit racers and the previous version of these, LunarEpic Flyknit 1 Low. They have all proven to be exceptionally comfortable and reasonably durable.

          This shoe is noticeably narrower out of the box than my year or so old Epic 1's. However, my memory is that all Flyknit shoes feel narrow for the first 20 or 30 miles and then loosened up nicely. Definitely needs to be coupled with the thinnest sock you can stand.

          The changes in this update --- especially the integrated or non-existent tongue --- raise the comfort level of these ALMOST to that of my absolute favorites, the Adidas Ultraboost, but at 25% fewer $$$ and (if past experience is any indication) 25-50% better sole life.

          Comments about Mens Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2 Running Shoe:

          This is a great shoe. Just not for me. I wanted to try the LunarEpic as an potential alternative to the Adidas Ultra Boost which sometimes has limited availability but like a few testers mentioned I was a little hesitant to wear them because of their narrow width. I don't have a problem with narrow shoes, some people have a narrow foot and they need shoes too. I was more concerned with the narrow platform. Also the sole looks like (and confirmed by many reviewers ) that it would be a rock magnet. I grow weary of removing rocks from
          My shoes and have decided I won't use another rock grabbing shoe. Cushioning is through the roof and style for days. Just not for me. RRS has an awesome 90 run guarantee- so give them a shot. They might be the shoe you are looking for.

          Comments about Mens Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2 Running Shoe:

          Currently running mountain pavement 12 -20 miles/week. Feet and a hip were starting to suffer, and it's been cold. Changed running style to more forward lean and forefoot/flat strike versus heel strike. Felt like nned more padding and so these have been awesome. More padding than old shoes, but still responsive to alterations in terrain and don't feel "cushiony". The fit is like bedroom slipper, but responsive. A little narrower, but not a problem. A little tougher getting them on due to higher tops. Would definitely recommend and would definitely get these again.

          Comments about Mens Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2 Running Shoe:

          I am a long time Nike shoe wearer and I am getting back into doing some running after a long layoff. And wanted to get a new pair of dedicated running shoes. I have never tried the lunar epics myhself but read a loty of reviews saying how great the shoes were. So when the lunarepic 2's came out I figured that I they would be just as good. I was wrong. The flyknit was great but they were way too narrow for my feet in my size (9.5). I almost had to force my foot into the shoe to get it on. Then after it was on my toes felt like they were in a vice. So needless to say I returned them and plan on getting a new pair of air pegasus when my return processes.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Packaage came on the delivery date no preoblem. But there was a small dent in one of the corners of the shoe box. Nothing to really complain about just pointing it out and the contents were intact.
