Yeah, I know the Lunar Glide 8's will be coming out in a few weeks and I am just doing a LG7 review...what else is new.
I always seem to be reviewing last year's news.
|Nike Lunar Glide 7's|
Enough yakking, let's talk about the Nike Lunar Glide 7's.
I bought them at Nike Outlet Store in North Conway. It is my second pair of Lunar Glides, my first pair were the 5's, which I liked a lot - enough that when I needed to look again, they were at the top of my list.
What are these shoe's purpose in my rotation?
The LG7's are my injury recovery, everyday runners and when I get back to the point that I can run long again, my run long shoes.
What kinds of runs have I done in them so far?
Mostly shorter, slower stuff on tar, dirt roads, a groomed trail run and runs with Bennie (which brings out flaws in some shoes very quickly, because it is much more like interval work). I have been limited lately by a bad stretch with Achilles/Left heel issues. So longer or faster runs haven't happened. However, I still have managed to get up to speed a couple of times in the shoes and they did well.
I like the Nike Lunar Glide 7's - a lot. No, putting 50 miles on a pair of running shoes does not make it a great running shoe and I will know more at the 200 mile mark. However, being able to run reasonably through my Achilles/Left heel issues in them has made a very good impression with me about them.
Now to get to running a little more regularly in them and see how they do when I am not an injured runner making 3 steps forward, 2 steps back.
I can't wait to just run in them.
Would I get the Lunar Glide 7's again?
I am already looking at what Bennie is getting me for my birthday in August and another pair of these are the leading candidate. Who knows I might even look closely at the 8's, but I like the tread design better on the 7's (the 8's siping design just don't look good for much other than the road and I would have concerns when it is wet too), so I have a feeling it might be another pair of 7's.
