Comfort in spades,yet still manage to be responsive.Slight question mark over durability but recommended

Lightweight Support
Great fitting upper
Very comfortable
Highly adaptable to the individual due to flywire

Durability

I made this my shoe of choice after looking to replace the asics Ds trainer 17 when couldn't get on with the new incarnation.The flywire in the upper gave me a snug fit and meant I didn't miss the ankle lock from the asics but found them so comfortable,the lunarlon midsole really works,was worried that the dynamic support was blurb and wouldn't support my mild to mid over pronation but have had no issues after using them for upwards of 100 miles at approx 6-7 at a time.
I have not had so much as a blister from these shoes and can use any sock whereas before I was spending out on thoros experia socks to minimise blisters.I am not expecting these to last much beyond 350 miles as the outsole has portions of the soft cushioning,this is not much of an issue for me as will happily replace them after this distance as the comfort far outweighs this for me but my asics ds trainers are still going strong with little sign of real wear at plus 300 miles. If you need shoes to really last take this into consideration.
I am also aware of neutral runners using these shoes without issues but obviously my experience is based on a mild/mid overpronating gait.
I am a male in late 30's and weigh a tad under 14 stone that runs 3-4 times a week on mainly road/tarmac averaging around 25-30 miles a week

Fashion nonsense

Good cushioning, but perhaps a little too soft. Fit was good, once I found the right size (not my usual).
They lack serious support for over-pronators - this is about the only 'support' shoe left in the Nike range and it hasn't got any. The dynamic nonsense is not 'new' - a similar thing was tried by many in the 80s. It wasn't very good then, either. Durability is also poor - on a par with Asics (whose support shoes, coincidentally, also only work for very mild pronators).
Okay, if you aren't aware of any proper running brands, but Nike is all about being all things to all men, so they dilute their brand with fashion and other sports. Result is a shoe that looks good and you can customise colours, but doesn't offer what majority of runners need. Only good for neutral runners.

Like slippers

The Lunar Glide 4 is my second pair of running shoes having owned an old pair of Asics for five years.

I cannot believe the difference they have made: in two runs I have shaved two minutes of my average time per mile and can run further without any aches or pains.

I would really recommend them to any mild/ moderate over-pronators out there.

I didn't get the "shield" version and the airflow is amazing around my foot, not sure if that would be different on the shield versions?
They come up small, so order a whole size larger than your everyday shoe.

Some of the colour schemes are trully appalling! Ha!

The soles are very lightweight and lack some rubber where I would expect them to have some. I don't think they have a chance of lasting as long as my Asics - maybe this is a good thing!?
Great shoes; comfortable and affordable

Nice snug fit, responsive and light. A faster shoe than I expected.

Flexible
Heel-to-toe drop akes strain off lower leg
Very comfortable
Could possibly be tight for people with real high arched feet?
First pair of Nike runners I've worn apart from Nike Frees. Impressive shoe!

Easy to wear

Comfortable, no rubbing at all, look good, lightweight.
I think that they lack the support that you get from asics around the side of the foot.
Nice running shoe at a good price. You can't really go wrong with Nike to be honest.
