The 5 Minute Review – Nike Lunarswift+ 3

Who said you had to stop running as the holidays approached?  We had a bunch of Nike shoes delivered to the store yesterday that will appeal to those of us looking to end the season on a high or simply put up a fight against the gaining of Christmas weight.  One of the shoes that was of particular interest to me was the Lunarswift+ 3.

black/volt colourway

The Lunarswift+ 3 is an update to a shoe that has gained a lot of popularity in a short time, but one that I hadn’t had the chance to try out yet.  Pitched as a shoe that would provide a minimal fit feel without sacrificing support and cushioning, it is supposed to suit a range of runners from under pronators to mild over pronators.

275g for a men's US8

The Lunarswift+ 3 takes the design cues of its lightweight mesh upper from the Nike Free Run+.  The innersleeve uses a seamless construction to reduce irritation to the feet while providing a very snug, sock-like fit.  The midfoot overlay is reminiscent of the original Free Run+ and serves to lock down the midfoot while running. 

Midfoot secured? Check!

The 10mm heel drop isn’t going to wow the runners that are looking for a minimalist shoe, but you do feel fairly close to the ground in the Lunarswift+ 3.  The flex grooves in the outsole improve flexibility while the Lunarlon cushioning and Dynamic Support system give this shoe good cushioning and stability.

Flex grooves and Waffled outsole

The Lunarswift+ 3 is true to size and runners that like shoes with a snug fit will appreciate the innersleeve upper.  In the 2 minutes that I spent on the treadmill, I thought these shoes provided a surprising amount of stability even for me, the somewhat-more-than-moderate-over-pronator.  I would have liked the shoes to be slightly more flexible and I did feel just a bit of heel slippage, but overall the Lunarswift+ 3 delivered a very comfortable ride.

and it looks pretty slick

At 275g for a men’s US8, the Lunarswift+ 3 is a comfortable, lightweight shoe that you could easily do your long runs and tempo runs in without any drama.  At $159, it outperforms more expensive shoes and gives you a real bang for your buck.  Ok, so that last expression was pretty uncool, but the Lunarswift+ 3 on the other hand, is pretty cool and you should definitely give them a try!

Available now for $159, at The Runner’s Gait.
