Been looking around for some lunar racers only to find limited sizes and that some online stores are claiming they are disconntinued. Surley not after only being around 8 months? Are Nike releasing another arcer soon hence the disconntinuation? The same goes for the Lunar Elites as I love those shoes.

Surely they`re not canning the Lunaracer II ? The Lunaracer was in mho the best racer Nike ever produced.

Not sure about Lunar Elites/Racers but Glides have moved onto updated version.

I had a bit of trouble getting hold of another original pair and fear I'm going to have to change over in time. Grrrrrrr.

Changed already, as in a different shoe?  Not just a weird new colour scheme?  I bought the older one last week and have only done 6 miles in them!

Yes, different shoe Phillis.

Toebox is smaller, entire shoe is narrower/more streamlined and seems more responsive (i.e. less marshmallow-like on the sole)

Also, doesn't seem as silky-soft on the inners and the materials are different.

I've been looking around for Lunaracer's too, yet to see a high street shop stock them and reluctant to buy them online without trying them on first.

 The Lunar range always seems to be in a state of flux, there's the new Lunareclipse and the Lunarfly which doesn't seem to have made it over to the UK

 I'm very happy with my Glides, and want a lighter 'racier' version. Will probably end up having to go to Nike Town in London (do they have a running section ?) to try out the Swift, Racer and Elite to see which one I prefer
