Nike Lunar Glide Review

At last, it is not raining! Therefore I was able to test my Nike Lunar Glide on the pavement.

I started my run through my normal start point. That will be the entance for the US Embassy along Roxas Blvd. I timed myself to see if I am able to run faster/slower using my new Glides. Upon start, it felt really good. Unlike my normal training shoes, I cannot feel the ground hitting my feet. The cushioning on this shoes is superb and I can only wish for anything but that. I then glided through my normal route. People are actually looking at my blue-apple green glides since it looks like its glowing. Funny it may sound but it really does. I then continued running and did feel good about it. Before, with my old rubber shoes, I feel some pressure along my legs' side. I think this could be attributed by the impact when my feet meets the ground. With the new glides, it was gone and it was flawless. I continued running and for about 1.5K, I started to feel the normal tiredness already. I then checked my foot and started to feel some uncomfort. I then realized that the glides are actually slanting when you step them on. The side of the shoes towards the other foot is slightly higher than the other side. As I was not accustomed to this kind of shoes, I felt some unease. I still continued running and was relieved that the uncomfort faded away at around 2.5K. I then concluded that it was just my foot adjusting to the shoes.

As I turned around from CCP, I felt the need to walk. I did just that and checked my shoes again. It is still intact and I can still feel my feet. I then tried examining the insole through moving my foot. The insole feel clean. No untowards stitching and bumps anywhere. Although I must say that the heel area has a lot of room. This may be advantageous to new runners like me as I can really feel comfort the "spaces" gives.

I continued running at 3K till my 4.8K end. The shoes are still working fine.

My iPod registered that my time was around 37 minutes. Slightly above than my usual 35. I guess this is attributed to the fact that I did not have my earphones and I was not listening to upbeat songs rather than blaming it to my new babies... I mean shoes. :)

All-in-all, my first experience with my glides is fabulous. Here is a run down of things I like and things I think that should have been improved.

Likey
  1. Soft cushioning - prevent me from having leg aches
  2. Nice insole. Clean and comfortable.
  3. Lightweight!
  4. Nice colors. LOL

Improve!

  1. Cushioning height -due to the cushioning, I was elevated for about 1 inch from the ground. I was kind of afraid since I do have the tendency to have "tapiloks".

I will definitely use my glides for my runs and I am recommending it for newbies. It offers the support a necomer to the sport should have. :)

Note: Thanks to my dad for buying me the shoes. Thanks POP!

  4. Hi Ransacker! I am actually thinking of re-blogging about my shoes. Currently, it is still serving me right. Cushion is perfect and my feet have adjusted to the shoes already. However, when I got myself tested in RUNNR, they told me that it was too soft (cushioned) for me. They suggested I fit in gel pads or wear ankle support to ease some pains in my ankle. I wore an ankle support and then it became perfect. I guess proper fitting of shoes depends on the person. Apparently I am a forefoor runner. I'd blog about my "pain" sometime soon. Just can't find the time to conceptualize on what to say. :) Happy Running!
