    Shoes

    Post by atcg on Sun Nov 16, 2008 2:30 pm

    I'm really interested in those Nike Lunar trainers. The thing is, I can barely find any info on them. I know that I overpronate, but I'm not sure if it would be classified as mild or severe. I can't find anything about whether or not those shoes would be good for me and I can't find a store that has them to try them on. I'll have to order online. What do you guys think? Am I risking my health with these things?

    The Lunar Trainers are classified as "shoes for the biomechanically efficient runner", meaning these shoes are made for people who don't pronate and don't need a shoe with a lot of support and or cushioning.

    I honestly think that you don't need different shoes for that, but w/e. the lunars are pretty light, so if you were worried about pronation you shouldn't get them.

    If your arch is medium I would say they're okay. I've found that shoes for medium arches and over-pronaters are best for people with legs like that. However, cushioned shoes are better for these runners than shoes built for over-pronaters with low arches. Running in shoes built for people with low arches is no fun when you don't have low arches.
