  • The Nike LunarSpider LT 3 is a lightweight running shoe that’s meant to deliver sure performance and service to its wearer. It doesn’t have a lot of features and extreme components, but the ones that are present in it are all efficient and capable of delivering a great running experience. It even has a low-profile design and an inconspicuous color scheme that may appeal to minimalist runners.
  • The upper unit of this running shoe limits the use of stitching. No extra layers have been sown into the upper, thus eliminating stiffness and heaviness. The mesh material that is used here is breathable and comfortable. It allows air to keep the interior cool and dry, making the runner feel as comfortable as possible when running.
  • The mid-sole unit utilizes a full-length foam unit that has two parts that work together in order to keep the performance well-supported. A softer core absorbs impact and causes the foot to spring back up during takeoff. A firmer foam stabilizes the core unit while also leading the foot towards a smooth and responsive transition through the gait cycle.
  • The outsole unit of the LunarSpider LT 3 utilizes a rubber compound that is highly resistant to wear and tear. Used liberally across the entire length of the shoe, it responsibly preserves the mid-sole and shields it from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. Flex grooves in the front section ensure the foot’s freedom of movement.

The Nike LunarSpider LT 3 has a standard running shoe length. Its sizing scheme is adherent to the regular measurements to which men and women are most acclimated. The heel, mid-foot and forefoot sections have medium widths, so it is able to accommodate those who have medium sized feet. Runners are even able to easily wear the shoe because it follows the natural curve of the human foot.

A durable rubber compound is used in the external sole unit of the Nike LunarSpider LT 3. It covers the mid-sole and protects it from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It doesn’t peel off easily or lose efficacy, even after many uses.

Flex grooves in the forefoot area allow the runner to move their feet more naturally. These grooves make the mid-sole movable, thus making sure that the toe-offs are as enabled and as natural as possible.

The Lunarlon midsole offers lightweight and responsive cushioning for the runner. Special foams that have varying densities have specific purposes, and they ensure the greatness of the runner’s performance. A softer foam unit serves as the main cushioning system. It’s comfortable, plush and springy. It allows the foot to be propelled forward surely and unrestrictedly.

A carrier made of firmer foam holds the soft unit in place, making sure that the platform is as stable and durable as possible to carry the foot. It also leads the foot towards a smoother and more efficient stride.

The mesh material used in the upper unit is breathable and comfortable against the skin. It encourages air to seamlessly enter the shoe in order to maintain ventilation and dryness of the interior. This model does away with unnecessary stitching, thus keeping the coverage smooth and lightweight.

The Flywire system is made out of a set of cables that are stretchable and durable. They connect directly to the lacing system. They allow the upper to tighten or loosen in accordance with the adjustments made to the shoelaces.

An interior arch bandage keeps the foot in place and locks it down. It also supports the mid-foot, basically making the upper unit an all-encompassing cover system.
