Seriously, how awesome would that be to never have to keep track of pairs of identical pairs of shoes in rotation by marking them in some way? At one time I think I had 3 pair of my NB 902s going at once. And because they aren't a white shoe they never really look all that different from fresh-out-of-the-box to ready-for-retirement a few hundred miles later.
One of the colorways (those gorgeous, garish blue ones) of the women's Nike Lunarglide+ went on sale via Nike's online store this AM...so, of course (duh!), I pulled the trigger. If I love them I will let RRS fulfill my pre-order when they get them in early next month. If I don't like them I will just cancel that order.
But I hope I will like them. Sure would be nice to not have to ration those remaining 3 pair of NB 903s...a shoe I don't even love, but about the only shoe I've tried in the past year that fits my foot well enough for distances beyond 8 miles. That seems to be my limit for shoes that are not a really good fit in terms of upper or support under my foot.
I read somewhere that Nike planned to put out 4-5 different colors of the shoe (not including those custom NikeID models that a person can order for extra $$). I found a few versions online. Not sure if these are all planned for US production or if some are only for overseas markets. Those insane purple ones were on a Japanese site:
I could run for an entire year (easily) without having to repeat colors--and by then Nike would surely come out with the Lunarglide+ 2. Those orange and pink ones are so sweet...I have a running skirt that those would match perfectly (though I hope to lose enough weight so that the skirt no longer fits...unfortunately it's not a color combo that RunningSkirts.com carries in their line-up anymore). I would wear any of those colors...I may not be fast, but at least I can blind the competition!
