Runners needing a lightweight option yet still desiring maximum support, this shoe is a good fit. The Nike Luarglide+ 4 is designed with medium arch support for runners who overpronate, otherwise known as striking the ground on the lateral side of the heel.
The added arch support saves money for those who might have to purchase additional arch support insoles. The only negative component of the arch support is that it may not be quite enough support for those who have severe flat feet. Also, runners who have too high of an arch will want to use their own inserts.
Another essential feature is the breathable mesh material that keeps feet cool. One of the main concerns with mesh material is the difficulty of keeping feet dry. However, the Lunarglide has a splash-guard around the toes to protect the toes from getting wet.
Another benefit of the Nike Lunarglide 4 is that while runners enjoy plush comfort on their feet, they can also take pleasure in the Nike+ running appkeeping track of workouts, calories burned, mileage, and set personal goals.
