The revamped Nike LunarGlide 8 is equipped the one of the most innovative running technologies we’ve seen yet. A Lunarlon midsole compliments the reliable Dynamic Support platform, providing a highly supportive and responsive ride. The redesigned outsole has strategically placed pods that help to evenly distribute impact upon landing, creating a smooth and stable ride throughout every run.
Upper: Single-layer engineered mesh upper with integrated Flywire cables wrap the midfoot and provide ventilation and secure fit. Lightweight foam collar provides comfortable fit.
Midsole: A contoured Lunarlon cushioned midsole with laser-cut on the sides provides superior lightweight responsiveness with each foot strike. Built-in sleeve allows for breathability and a streamlined, sock-like fit. Dynamic Support platform provides lightweight stability.
Outsole: A natural movement-focused outsole made from flex grooves provides six points of flexibility. Molded pods help reduce shock absorption during the run.
"The LunarGlide is categorized within Nike’s new “Run Easy” silo—shoes meant to deliver superior comfort and a plush ride. The significant update accomplishes that, in large part because of a spongy layer encapsulated by durable foam that can withstand the abuse of running. But the biggest change comes to that outer material, which has been reconfigured much like the chassis of the LunarEpic, using a podlike design and laser-cut grooves for flexibility. This package, however, is beefier to support a pronating foot. As with earlier versions, stability comes via a dynamic wedge under the arch—it delivers more support the further you roll inward."
