Nike is one of the most popular shoe brands in the marketplace and it’s no wonder why. They consistently produce high quality, feature-packed products, that not only look awesome but come at an affordable price. The years of poorly made shoes and reliance on being a huge brand in order to move units are now well and truly them. Today, Nike is all about being technologically advanced, big on value and true to its running origins.
This brings me to their latest offering, the Lunar Eclipse+ 4. Yeah they look cool, but the substance outweighs the style. This is one of the best stability shoes in the market. Somehow they’ve managed to create a surprisingly lightweight shoe that has high-end stability. You can feel it from the minute you slide them on. The fit is very comfortable, with a snug heel cup and the lacing structure meaning the upper wraps around your foot tightly. The Dynamic Flywire runs along the side panel, as per its predecessor the Lunar Eclipse 3, and the upper is mostly mesh. This keeps the weight down without compromising the structure and support, plus improves the breathability.
Start running in them and you immediately feel the quality. The Lunarlon cushioning technology is soft and responsive, providing a great ride. The sole is grippy on any surface, from wet roads to rocky trails, and best of all, these puppies are built to last. You could expect to get a long life from them and being so light they can easily cross between long runs and tempo sessions.
