Nike introduces the LunarGlide+ 3.
CounterKicks unveiled the new Nike LunarGlide+ 3 back in December of 2010 and now here’s the Swoosh making its official intro of what could potentially be one of the biggest selling shoes ever for the brand.
LunarGlide+ 3 returns with many of the familiar elements that made the first two models popular, focusing on stability, enhanced fit, and stylish package with Dynamic Support architecture.
Dynamic Support in particular is what Nike describes as:
A two-part midsole system developed to provide the ultimate in stability and cushioning for a smooth, supported ride. Dynamic Support features opposing wedges of two different types of foam – the super-soft Lunarlon core foam for cushioning and the dense, more supportive carrier foam. Many runners tend to overpronate, meaning their heels land sharply causing the ankle to roll inward. To help neutralize runners, the Lunarlon foam is thicker on the outside where a runner wants more cushioning, and the firmer carrier foam is thicker on the inside where a runner wants more stability. The Dynamic Support wedges move the runner from soft to stable as the heel lands and the foot flexes down, providing for an easy, gradual transition.
Nike LunarGlide+ 3 also features a customized fit midfoot strap, no-sew construction, and Lunarlon foam cushioning. Detailed images in both men’s and women’s LunarGlide+ 3 styles below.
