Nike Lunaracer+ Zapatillas de running - Mujer CUSTOMER REVIEWS
Rochester, NY, USA
Got these shoes yesterday. They feel really good. Normally i'm a size 4 but i got a size 5, they fit so well. I recommend that if you have big feet, get a size and a half or a size up from your normal size.
I love these shoes, the colors are great. Perfectly light weight and seem great for running in. The only problem i have with them is the heel, its a bit annoying sometimes, but i haven't gotten blisters yet.
These are amazing shoes, and you should definitely think about purchasing these.
I use these for everything!!
I am not a marathonrunner... Far from it. I just run for fun and not very long... But I do appreciate a lighter shoe and I still want plenty of cushioning... And these fit the bill perfectly for me...
I run primarily in colder climates so I actually like the fact that these are made with a fabric that is not as airy like many shoes made with mesh these days are. Since such shoes make my feet sometimes a bit cold during autumn time...
Even though I can very weill imagine that these used in hot humid weather probably could feel a bit squishy after a while.
I have narrow feet, and these have a snug fit indeed, they don't really feel like regular running shoes on the foot, which might feel strange for someone using a shoe like this for the first time... But don't let that scare you off! Since the snug fit seems very thought through and the fabric also stretches a bit to fit your foot, so after a just a few minutes they feel very comfortable, for me at least. (Shoe-fit is however very individual...).
I have seen that some reviews here and elsewhere suggest that you should choose half a size or even a whole size bigger than normal, when buying a pair of these. And that may very well be the case for some, since the narrowness of the shoe might make you wish for a larger fit... They are about one centimeter smaller on the outsole compared to my regular lunar ride, but the fabric and lining is also very much thinner than a regular plush jogging shoe. So I still went for my regular size, and have not been disappointed! (I do still have almost about 7 mm of space in the front of my shoes),
My toes do not get squashed together and I have not exeprienced any toe-discomfort or blisters wearing these, and I do get blisters very easily normally... So I would make sure I would try these on and walk in them for a quite a bit, and not just a minute or two, before deciding on size... allowing them to warm up on your feet.
I'm not convinced a larger size will necessarily get rid of the discomfort of the snug, narrow fit, if that is what's bothering you or you are not accustomed to that. Getting a longer shoe doesn't necessarily solve either the narrowness or give you more wiggle-room for your toes... And if that is what you need, or feel more comfortable with, then maybe these are just not the shoes for you...
Apart from being a very nice and light and cushiony running shoe these shoes also look awesome!! And I wear mine often also on walkes on the town or doing the regular daily stuff out and about! And I get tons of compliment for my cool sneakers... :) They handle getting washed in the maschine very well too, and haven't lost their shape or performance so far...
(Little do most people know, that I go shopping in a pair of racers... But I don't care! I love my Lunaracers!)
Did Nike change their sizing?
I've been wearing the Lunar Racer for a few years now. I've run a number of marathons in these sneakers and have gone through quite a few pairs. I went to order a new pair and they are way too small. I wear a size 6/6.5 in shoes, but in Nike sneakers I always order a 7. I ordered my usual 7 and they were way too small. I have a very narrow foot, but I could feel there was absolutely no room in the toe box, which is not a good scenario for marathon running, where you need a little more room in the later miles as your feet swell. I know my feet haven't grown since all of my other shoes/sneakers still fit the same. I love the sneaker though, it's so light, but has great cushioning for the longer miles. I never beat my feet up wearing these. I've worn other lightweight shoes and unless it's a race, I really can't go more than ten miles without my feet starting to hurt, but with the Lunar Race, this is a non-issue. I do have an issue with the area of the shoe right near the ankle. This area is rather stiff and not very flexible, so I often find it chafes and cuts the skin, even more so in hot, humid weather. My husband wears the Nike Free 3.0 and I've noticed that the area of fabric that goes around the foot/ankle on his sneakers is very soft and pliable. It would be great if Nike could incorporate some of this in the Lunar Racer, so it's not so stiff. I will order up a half a size.
my coach got these shoes for when i was in high school. the first thing i noticed when i put them on was that they were really tight. the second thing was that i needed to keep my toenails cliped because during races, my toes were so squished together in the shoes that my toenails started diggin into my other small toes to where i was bleeding. this happened about 3 times. or when ever i forgot to clip my nails before a race.
after a while they stretched out and formed very nicely to my foot, but my feet are pretty narrow, so it's kind of crazy how squished together my tows get.
i've gotten use to them over the years (i only wear them for intervals and racing). i had them for about 3 years. but i like how light they are.
having worn all Nike race Shoes, I found the Lunaracer+2 fabulous. So ordered these. Yeeouch, Achilles started to hurt, I have a left weak Achilles. Other foot was fine, so did lots of stretching, still no improvement. Decided to put my other Lunaracer 2 on for a long run 13 mile. No problem, no soreness.
Nike obviously have decided to cut costs by cutting the material for the shoe. Lunaracer 2 was light, yet soft to the foot in the material used. Would I buy another pair as they are.....NO WAY.!!! I have important races coming up.
My all out favourite Nike shoe has to be the Nike Victory, why they stopped making them I have no idea. Lunaracer+2 came close....but these, if they were not so expensive I would bin them.!!
