- Nike makes the LunarStelos a very functional by using typical designs and a few of their proprietary technologies. The mesh upper is very breathable and gives good flexibility with decent support. Providing the shoe with more ventilation are the perforations on each side of the shoe. Runners are guaranteed of a cool and dry run in this shoe.
- Working with the upper mesh is the brand-exclusive Flywire cords. They hug the foot in security and support as the cords are attached to the midsole and then connected through the laces. With each tug of the laces, the cords are directly involved in giving runners their most preferred fit.
- The outsole is another unique Nike technology. It features the siped pattern that allows good flexibility and excellent ground contact. The usual hard rubber in the heel and other areas add more durability in this part of the shoe.
The fit of the Nike LunarStelos is reasonably standard. It holds the heel and the midfoot really well and can be adjusted for a more precise fit courtesy of the Flywire cords. The forefoot has a fairly roomy space for mid-run swelling and for the toes to naturally spread out. It runs true to size.
Nike’s laser-cut outsole is utilized in the LunarStelos. The unique design of the outsole features grooves and a rubber pattern that offers good ground contact for stability while also giving the shoe excellent flexibility. A sturdy carbon rubber is located in the heel and other parts for a more lasting performance.
A dual-density foam covers the entire midsole. The softer foam sits on top of the firmer one for a nice blend of cushioning, support, and responsiveness. It also delivers adequate durability and helps with the transition from landing to take-off.
The no-sew upper is mostly very breathable mesh and printed overlays for support. Nike uses 4 Flywire cords on both sides for a comprehensive locked down technology. The cords also allow the foot to move together with the entire upper. As mentioned, the sides of the shoe have prominent perforations for exceptional breathability. The collar and the tongue have relatively thick padding. There is also a removable insole for more cushioning and support.
