What do the over-pronators think of the Nike LunarGlide 5?

Currently got Adidas Supernova but they're going to need replacing soon.

I loved almost everything about the lunarglide 4,but the outsole has major wear issues which can vary massively person to person.My experience was heavy initial wear,followed by minor wear before a complete breakdown very quicky. Total mileage was 250-325 miles which isnt great. I only overpronated marginally and am moving towards a more neutral shoe now so havent experience of the fifth incarnation but it appears the outsole is unchanged from 4/5.

A comfy shoe and I loved running in them,if the mileage isnt an issue,yes I would recommend them,if you want them to last longer then probably not the shoe to swap to

Very comfortable shoes, responsive but the sole does wear down quickly. If you run on roads then this isn't too bad and I got 400 miles out of the 4 version. The sole does look improved on the 5 version but in reality it is no more hard wearing.

Thanks for the info!

I will give them a go.

Good luck with the lunarglide 5. I've had 2's 3's and now the 5's. They are comfortable and light shoes but offer support as good, if not better than a lot of the clunkier rivals. The flywire with the knitted effect looks great but I have real issues though with the progression of the soles. They have poor grip on them even when they are in the box, which I would say is a little ropey for road running in the wet or ice. Mine rapidly deteriorated so that even at 200km I considered them 'worn'. Now they have reached 320km, I'm shopping for a new pair. Have noticed when pricing them up that they are also a bit more expensive than most of the other 'majors'. If I can get a good deal online then I may still go for them again. I'm hoping that I may get more out of a spring pair than ones used through this winter.
