Nike Lunar Glide+ 5

This flagship Lunar shoe works very well for neutral runners, but it also features one of the least intrusive and most effective stabilizing technologies on the market. Two changes have increased comfort. First, the Flywire strands are arranged and managed more effectively: At the top and bottom lace loops they’re loose to snug better; the middle strands are stitched to the Ghilley loops and move in concert with the eyestay and the foot, so it’s more secure. Second, the tongue is gusseted and the interior is smooth polyester fabric, reducing friction and also wicking moisture. The two-part midsole and minimal rubber outersole remain as before, as they were well dialed in. (Remember that “highly effective stabilizing technology”? Yeah, this is it.) The combination of improved fit, effective stability, and comfortable ride earned the LunarGlide+ 5 our award for Best Shoe in the Motion Stabilizing category.

”Snug and comfortable fit. I have worn all of the Lunar

Glide shoes, and this one is stable and cushioned, like they should be. If I could only have one pair of running shoes, this would be it.”
