This week, Nike Running have released their latest LunarGlide running shoe; number 6 – their most stable LunarGlide to date; noted for its enhanced stability and lighter Lunarlon foam.
Since the launch of Lunarlon cushioning six years ago, which was inspired by astronauts bounding weightlessly on the moon, this popular cushioning technology has been adopted across eight different styles and shoe categories.
LunarGlide 6 delivers this enhanced stability, with an increased angle of Dynamic Support, and a two-part midsole system introduced in the original LunarGlide in 2009 which provides runners both cushioning and stability. The LunarGlide’s Dynamic Support uses opposing wedges of foam with different densities to offer a smoother, more stable shoe underfoot.
Further stability was added in the upper, engineered with soft foam and breathable, lightweight mesh that conforms to the foot. These are integrated with a Flywire upper to hug the foot for an adaptive fit, and a supportive heel clip.
The LunarGlide 6 is available in a variety of colour-ways (£95) and for the personal touch; Nike iD (£125).
