Overpronation can be a curse for runners. Those who overpronate suffer from the outer edge of their heel hitting the ground first, with your foot rolling inward into the arch, leading to overly flattening your foot with each step. Overpronation can lead to suffering from ankle sprains, shin splints, and heel spurs. It’s often recommended that runners who suffer from overpronation obtain a running shoe designed to combat and correct overpronation through cushioning and a construction that provides stability.
The Nike Lunarglide 9 is a lightweight trainer that aims to provide a combination of stability and cushioning to combat overpronation. For runners with mid to high arches and are seeking a smooth ride, the Lunarglide 9 features great cushioning, a secure upper, and a flexible and shallow toe box. The newly engineered mesh upper and Lunarlon foam midsole delivers a responsive transition through the gait cycle while keeping the foot secure and comfortable in the foot chamber.
