Nike Lunarglide Neutral or Supportive shoe
1:04pm, 7 Apr 2016
Hills of Death (HOD)I've been running with these a few years plus (Lunarracers and Tempos) been wondering if they actually are supportive shoes they don't look it.
If they are I need to stop using them

fetcheveryoneCan't answer your specific question, soz. I seem to have gotten away with wearing pretty much any shoes for the last ten years - except for one pair that were designed to encourage forefoot landing, and felt as though I was wearing heels.

SjjhThey do bill the Lunarglides as a Support shoe with "Dynamic support".
I've been wearing them mainly for the last two years as most others I have tried haven't been as comfortable as the lunarglides.
What's the reason for being told to stop? I think I am fairly neutral and haven't had any issues with them.

Hills of Death (HOD)I haven't I wear orthotics so it's too much support for say something like Pegasus which has add support I don't care what anyone says. It started to cause me issues I don't want that to happen again basically.

HappyG(rrr)What does Supportive mean? I should google it really.

K5 GusBy supportive, do you mean they try to counter pronation by having a firmer midsole on the inside of the foot than the outside ( either by different midsole material, or firmer medial posts ) ?
If so then you should be able to tell by prodding the midsole with your finger and seeing if it's firmer on the inside than outside.
Are you sure Nike Pegasus is a support shoe btw ? Pretty sure it's classed ( and built ) as a neutral shoe ( ie midsole density is same throughout the midsole )
If you're using orthotics the I agree you should not use a support shoe, the orthotics should provide the support so you should use a neutral shoe

The_SaintI had about 10 pairs of the original Lunarglide and Lunarglide 2, loved them, if you were a neutral runner they didn't attempt to interfere with how you ran but if you turned in a bit the bar was meant to sort that out - lovely.
Imagine my horror when I couldn't get any more old stock and tried a pair of 4s only to find that it was like running on a golf ball in the inside of the heel, wore them once and never again.

Hills of Death (HOD)I think that might be issue Saint.
thanks Gus I'll look into it, i do,find the Pegasus with the orthotic too much (well the 32)
Also my sports massage guy also a very good club runner said to me it's got a stiff mid sole and is mainly for people who,don't spend too long on ground (ie fast lads lol)

runnerbeanI use the glides with my orthotics HOD. I love them. I have 4s 5s and 7s can't say as I've found any of them different from each other.
