Fit-Feel-Ride: Lucky seven? You bet. The Lunarglide shines in its most recent iteration, which has been stripped of its overlays and redesigned with a seamless, open-mesh upper that comfortably and reliably secures the foot (with Nike’s patented Flywire cable system) to the resilient midsole chassis. Combined with an internal bootie and a luxurious interior, the Lungarglide 7 is as comfy and secure-fi tting as any trainer on the market. A TPU heel counter provides support and stability to a flexible shoe that otherwise runs like the beautiful lightweight trainer that it is. It features Nike’s Dynamic Support platform, which provides just the right amount of stability for a wide range of gait types without the added weight or stiffness of a traditional medial post.

This is the shoe for you if … You need an everyday trainer with an ideal balance between stability and responsiveness.

Plus: It’s capable of long runs at a variety of speeds as well as quicker-turnover types of workouts.

Minus: A few of our wear-testers thought the fit was a bit too snug and preferred a half-size larger than their typical size.
