Nike Lunarglide 6 - A Review
My experience with the Nike Lunarglide so far is out of this world. I was fortunate enough to meet the shoe at the Sofitel Hotel in Auckland, discuss it over fine dining designed by chef Nick Honeyman and then ride with it over Auckland's Harbour before taking it for a 10km run around Waiheke Island with a carefully selected bunch of all around awesome people - Of course, all this was in honour of the Nike Lunarglide 6.
The Lunarglide is known for its springy response and support whilst on the run but the Nike Lunarglide 6 takes it that much further offering further support and aiding natural motion.
Key features are the pressure mapped outsole designed to accentuate your natural running motion, a firm heel to help with support and full toe to heel comfort as well as keeping your foot secure within the shoe. All this and the shoe still looks amazing.
But with all the tech info aside how did it really feel? Well, so far I have used it in the bush, on the road, on the treadmill and even weights training and never before have I taken a brand new shoe on a 10km run and not had problems. It did its job straight out of the box and thank's to its support I prefer the Nike Lunarglide 6 over my Nike Free's for the long distance run (I basically have a Nike shoe no matter what the occasion)
I'm am genuinely impressed. Not only was this shoe awesome to run in but the science behind it is impressive as well with each and every detail well thought out and considered without compromising fashion.
Thanks Nike for the Nike Lunarglide 6 my new best running friend.
