That’s one small step for shoemankind!

The Nike LunarGlide 6 is off and running, launched just in time to spotlight the Apollo 11 mission that landed the first humans on the Moon.

According to Nike, the shoe whose namesake cushioning “was inspired by astronauts bounding weightlessly on the moon is more stable than ever.”

The LunarGlide 6 uses lightweight “Nike Lunarlon” cushioning that “delivers a plush, responsive ride that runners love.”

Cost: $110

Rob Williams, Senior Footwear Designer, said in a Nike press statement: “We took a holistic approach to enhancing stability in the LunarGlide 6, and Lunarlon offers lightweight, soft and responsive cushioning. It’s the best of both worlds for runners – lightweight cushioning and amazing support.”
