New Additions to the Nike Lunar Family: Lunar Glide+ 2 and Lunar Swift+

Last year, I was fortunate to have been one of the chosen few to participate in the test run of the then to be launched running shoe from Nike , the Lunar Glide+. All participants of the said activity took home a brand new Nike Lunar Glide+ and that is when my happy running experience with the Lunar Glide+ begun (see my previous post about our test run experience HERE).

My Lunar Glide+ became my favorite running shoe and it was the same for most of my friends who were part of the test run too. My pair was my shoe of choice through all my fun runs and two half marathons last year until I got pregnant and took time off from running.

Now that I am getting back to my old running routine, I was thinking of getting another pair of Glides when Nike sent me some information about the newly launched Nike Lunar products – the Nike Lunar Glide+ 2 and the Nike Lunar Swift+.  Talk about good timing! 😉

I was informed that as with the Lunar Glide+, both shoes also has the Dynamic Support that adapts to every runner at every phase of the run. Both also use the Lunarlon cushioning system that delivers ultra-soft, lightweight cushioning and springy response, all in a lightweight package.

And while the Lunar Glide+ is said to be best for runners with neutral foot-type, the  Lunar Swift+ is ideal for runners that are underpronated to moderately overpronated gait. The LunarGlide+ 2, on the other hand, is for the daily distance trainer, ideal for a wide range of runners, from underpronators through moderate overpronators.

Best of all, both the Swift+ and Glide+ 2 comes in the same eye-candy colors that the Lunar Glide+ have been known for. I simply love it.

I really would want to try both. I am really just scared if I find out that both shoe models prove to be a good fit for my feet! In that case, I would find it hard to choose and would just hope that I’ll have a budget to score both. Hmmmmm… (Hey hubby, you could buy one for me and I’ll buy the other for myself, right? How’s that for an anniversary gift? ;))

As if following the “Ladies First” custom, Nike yesterday released the Women’s version of the Nike Lunar Glide+ at all Nike concept stores in the Philippines. Retailing at PHP 5,495.00 dear friend Marga and I was pleasantly surprised to see a different colored-Women’s version (it’s in blue!) displayed at Nike stores around the Glorietta and Greenbelt area while we were out earlier.



So there ladies, you’ll get first crack on purchasing and trying-out the new Nike Lunar Glide+ which boasts of “rocket science”.
