Nike Lunar Kayoss
Workout: 45 Minute Run w/ 10 minutes at Tempo Pace
I just got these shoes as a present for my birthday. I was really looking forward to testing them out on a run. I came back to school and met up with some members of my track team to do a workout. These shoes seemed a little stiff when we first started running. As the run progressed and we started the tempo, I noticed that these shoes were striking the ground in a very heavy fashion. The Nike Lunar Kayoss are a training shoe, not a running shoe, and that was apparent when trying to run in them. We finally rounded the corner to school and finished our workout and I drove back to my apartment. Looking back on my run today, I would not suggest the Lunar Kayoss for running hard paced workouts in, but if you are new to running, these shoes might be a suitable starting point. I would not recommend wearing these shoes for over 15-20 minutes of low to moderate paced running. On the other hand, if you play other sports or are looking for a shoe to wear to the gym then these are definitely an option for you!
This shoe is no longer available on the Nike website, but there are a ton of websites out there who have them available. Such as:
