Abrasion-resistant outsole

The outsole unit of this running shoe makes use of the BRS 1000, a carbon rubber unit that’s able to shield the rest of the midsole from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It is capable of handling impact, so it won’t break down or peel off easily despite being exposed to abrasive conditions.

LunarGlide 7’s unique outsole design

The Pressure Mapped Outsole design essentially encourages natural movement because it enhances the surface grip in areas where the foot commonly puts on weight. Basically, it accommodates how the runner actually traverses the ground.

The efficacy of the gait is afforded by flex grooves. These allow the foot to transition more freely from the heel to the toe, making sure that the toe-off is naturally enabled.

The Lunarlon anatomy

The Lunarlon cushioning system uses a denser foam carrier that surrounds a softer and more responsive core. It basically makes the underfoot cushioning feel adequately responsive, while also keeping it consistent and long-lasting.

How stability is achieved in the LunarGlide 7

The medial area of the Nike LunarGlide 7’s platform features the Dynamic Support design. A dense midfoot unit gives support to the arch, stabilizing it and leading the foot towards a natural and more balanced stance when running.

No-overlay upper

The Flyknit is a soft material that resembles woven cloth. It’s strong and it doesn’t tear apart easily. It does away with the use of overlays, thus providing a seamless, sock-like fit to the wearer. It’s breathable as well, so air is constantly enabled to enter the shoe to keep the foot cool and dry.

A secure fit, guaranteed

The Dynamic Flywire system is a midfoot securing technology that utilizes stretchable cables. These cables are connected to the lacing system, so when the shoelaces are actually adjusted, they cause the cables to move accordingly as well.

An external TPU heel counter locks the rear of the foot in place and secures it. It is helpful in preventing any accidental shoe removal or wobbliness to the interior.

Additional reflective feature

Reflective materials enhance this shoe’s visibility, especially in low-light conditions. It enables the runner to run confidently at night as it reflects light from any light source, making it visible.
