Nike LunarGlide+ Review

.. from previous post - Nike LunarGlide+ First Impression.

Whether this model work fine with my legs, I remember George Shehaan said in his "Running to Win: How to Achieve the Physical, Mental and Spiritual Victories of Running" book,
"My perfect running shoes might be worst shoes to you"

So how detail or good about shoes technical info, still it will not guarantee works good on you. If your feet pronation matches with the shoes then it depend on how you run on it.


Before that I need to describe a little bit about my training. Early 2009 I did a comeback after a year rest to setup my part-time business. Now, my weekday training are 3~4times per week. Mostly I could say 4. Sometimes 5 are max.

Usually my running route covers 60% of palm plantation, rubber estate thru kampung-kampung off-road. Another 40% on tarred road. On weekday my training distance between 6km~10km and 12km~18km on weekend. Beside long distance run, I rotate with cycling on Sunday.

My feet is normal arch type. As a normal pronator, you can wear just about any shoe including this model

Burn Test
Once in my feet, I could feel a light weight running shoes compare to my 2007 Pegasus. This shoe look fit. The laces also look different than Pegasus. During running, this shoe gave enough cushioning and comfortable. I could run a bit faster because of light in weight.

It gave no problem when I heading to kampong trail road including jalan tanah merah, jalan berpasir dan berbatu thru palm and rubber plantation. It also gave stability along my running. Once awhile I look down, I feel likes running with office shoes. I can't flush that kind of feeling. After 10km running, legs still fine.


Until today I had ran number of training with LunarGlide+. Legs doing fine. Show no sign of leg injuries/aches after I ran slow and fast pace. Beside that, along testing period I notice the lace never untight/loose while running.

After 2 weeks of running and testing, slowly this model builds my trust to feature for it first racing - Baling International Duathlon. And last sunday, I really satisfied/happy with my timing. Complete the race within target and no walking in last running discipline compare to previous duathlon.

With Yaziz and Nike LunarGlide+ at Baling International Duathlon

After 5 years of jogging, running and racing with 3 models of Pegasus, I could say.. i found my Pegasus replacement. I'm happily to retire my Pegasus 2007 and wear it in casual activities.

For LunarGlide+, there will be more racing awaiting and lastly I would said many thanks to Nike Sales (M) Sdn Bhd, KL for their generous and trust in me to test their new running shoes - Nike LunarGlide+.

Nike LunarGlide - First impression

When i open the Nike orange box, Nike LunarGlide+ look likes my office safety boot. Ya! right we're required to wear safety boot in plant compound. The shoes comes almost in black color and striking orange sole.

Usually running shoes always fancy. Regardless any brand or model. They use contra colors to make it attractive, sporty and creating fun mode while running. And sometimes it caught my eyes looking at runners' shoes during racing especially the elite runners.

Initially it is important factor to attract and stop potential buyer while competing with other shoes/brand on shelf before they being touch, hold and test pakai. The all black color (except the swoosh) look likes office shoes. I had enough looking shoes color like that. Normally when i in shoes outlet, I'm looking for pronation type, fancy and follow by brand.

LunarGlide+ available in two color only. This model is Men In Black while another white color is for women. Got no choice. A good reason for men, we no need to wash regularly. Can enjoy running all day long.

Weight? Ya quite light compare to my Pegasus 2007 although my current shoes got no "pick-up" already - Suspension kureng. I don't know about the cushioning. No test yet.

Next.. i will be writing more after test drive.

Meanwhile i tested walk around with this stuff in office, my colleague notice a my different "safety boot" by striking orange sole - This stuff really attractive.

Next review - Test and Racing.

Quote of the Day

Running has gone beyond fitness. The jogging movement, which began as a pursuit of health, has become an experiential quest.

IIR yang berlagak

Ipoh International Run (IIR) - An event which the organizer never learn lesson from previous-previous-previous mistakes. Normally a person who keep no doing same mistake again and again eventhough the solution/problem being highlight, we call it - "Berlagak sombong" another word "Tak reti bahasa"..

For me, i already close my appetite to run IIR many years ago since 2004 - but not fully. Each year i keep update IIR performance thru my keen running friends. Same stories.

No enough medals, lack of certificate, run out drinking water, wrong route, long queue for finish medals, no marking distance - these are basic runner needs. And still they did not fix it or make improvement.

I had witness numbers of marathon runners in IIR crossed finish line and nobody waiting. Finish medal gone - habis, finish banner, tent already brought down, Drinking water station?.. sudah bungkus balik. And i have to give my water bottle and they shared within 4~5 of them. Pity..right?

But... if i mention KRI - Ipoh, anyone disgree if i said KRI is one of best run event organizer? No doubt. They have alot of experience in this sport. Each year they gain more runners participated into their annual event. So my suggestion for next IIR..

Why not the IIR organizer do a joint-venture with KRI?.. Why not?

Ok.. if the IIR organizer.. berlagak sombong. I plead to KRI...

Why not KRI help the IIR organizer on technical/basic thing?.. Why not?
