The Nike LunarTempo is Nike’s latest addition to its Lunar cushioned trainer series. Using their Lunarlon foam in the midsole, this forms the basis of  a range of Nike running shoes, including the popular LunarGlide and LunarRacer models.

As Nike themselves say:

Designed for both training runs and race day, the Nike LunarTempo Men’s Running Shoe combines the lightweight fit of the LunarRacer with ultra-plush Lunarlon cushioning to deliver more speed in every mile.

The foam cushioning has apparently been updated to be ‘lighter and more responsive’ than previously, with a size 9 men’s LunarTempo trainer weighing in at 210g. The heel to toe differential is 8mm, so not quite a racing flat but far way from the 10-12mm drop of many other cushioned and more structured shoes. I like my running shoes to be as flat as possible and 8mm is the maximum I’d go up to in terms of drop, but for those used to a higher differential, this shoe may be a good gateway towards a flatter shoe.
