Spring 2013 Running Shoe Review

Nike Flyknit Lunar 1+, $160

7.6 oz. (men’s); 6.3 oz. (women’s)

10mm heel-toe offset

FIT: This shoe’s tightly knitted seamless upper serves up a comfortable, locked-down, foot-contouring fit in the midfoot and forefoot, but some testers felt the heel fit a bit loose.

FEEL: Despite the highly advanced manufacturing that goes into this shoe, it has a sublimely simple feeling to it. Its moderately soft, cushioned and flexible undercarriage is also supportive but not inhibiting in any way.

RIDE: This shoe rides as smooth as any in this review. The supple midsole and low-volume fit offer great heel-toe roll-through while also giving the runner good sensory connection with the ground.
