    Even Nike reps are admitting now that Lunarlon breaks down. Maybe that's why they don't make a durable outsole for it! Lol

    Nike's own cushioning innovation director says Lunarlon breaks down. That's why they are combining it with Zoom now.

    Even on the Nike forums they trash Lunarlon. About the only good thing they say about Lunarlon is it's good for casual wear. I would take that as a backhanded compliment.

    lunarlon is a pretty basic set up, which is why it was always a slap in the face to stick it in that shoe and price it at $165.

    Even $200!

    I hunt for sales for mine, under 100, be it funky colors, but they are getting harder to find.
