Women's NIKE® LUNARELITE+ :: Re-ignite your excitement for running in this all-new, fast, lightweight shoe with springy LunarLite cushioning, mild stability, and a no-sew, breathable upper with Flywire for great fit and feel. Nike+ ready.* 8.5 ounces
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!
Lunar Elite's are my new favorite!
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!

Firm ride. Rubs lateral malleolus
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)

Good Performance 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'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.
Lunar Elite just OK
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.

Great!! Trainer and racer
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!
Mount Vernon, WA
Practical and cute
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.
Los Angeles, CA
I will only run in Nike shoes and when I found the LunarElite -- I have not gone back to any other shoe. 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!
PR'd in these shoes!!!
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.
hermosa beach, ca
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!
Great running shoe
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!
Love them, I could wear them all day.
I like to wear these when I am doing fast training on the track as well as when I race. When I finish a race they don't hurt my feet like other shoes have.
I love these!
This was great for me. I run fairly often outside and inside and mostly on sidewalks/pavements. These were a great deal too!
Walla Walla, OR
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.
Excellent Shoe! Stylish shoe that is great for running or walking. Comfortable and lightweight.
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 :)
Great performance running shoes!
These shoes are very light weight and comfortable control of pronation.
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.
Excellent choice in light weight runner
use this shoe for half marathon training and track workouts.
Great performance shoe
Shoe wears great, very comfortable and lightweight
If you like a lightweight shoe, this is for you.
I ordered a half size up as suggested, and the shoes fit perfectly. They are comfortable and I look forward to many more miles in them!
