Review: Nike Lunarglide 5 Shield trainers
AS the nights draw in, being visible while trotting beside roads is pretty important.
Looking hot while the temperature plummets is a pretty sweet side effect of wearing the new Nike Lunarglide 5 Shield too.
With flouro trim and a reflective leopard-print upper, these bad boys will give you a better than even chance of being spotted by that motorist before he feels a bump on his bonnet.
In addition to its extra visibility, the Lunarglide 5 Shield is also water repellent and has a fleecey bit to keep your ankle, which can only be good things with the autumn, winter and spring we’re likely to have.
So light are the shoes that when they arrived at Shopper Towers last week our receptionist Sally believed she was delivering me an empty box.
She was so adamant that it did not possibly weigh enough to contain a pair of trainers that she hovered while I ripped off the brown paper and peeked in the box.
I’m not scientist, and I don’t have a set of scales to hand, but I estimate each shoe weighs roughly the same as a banana.
Clearly, running in them is less slippery than wearing the yellow fruit on your feet.
In fact, running in them is pleasurable. The amount of pleasure will obviously depend on how much you enjoy running, but they definitely make it easier.
Striding along the streets of Orpington of a Thursday evening, I felt fleet-footed and nimble.
Designed for neutral gait, they still offered me plenty of support.
Before I took them for a run, I pottered round the office in them, and I must add that they are a great pottering shoe.
I felt as though I was walking on clouds.
In my, admittedly casual, workwear, I did look a berk though.
The thing about flouro and reflective leopard print is it does make a statement.
While I was grateful for the added safety running, it did jar with regular clothes.
Bizarrely, when added to a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, they are actually the kind of trendy embellishment you need.
