THE SELL: Heel strikers deserve better. THE TEST: Pronation-control shoes tend to feel clunky and dull, like you're running with a hangover. THat's what's great about the new LunarGlide+ 3: its subtle medial post—that wedge of dense foam inside a stability shoe's heel—is effective without being obtrusive. The updated design also adds a pair of broad plastic wings that clamp down around the midfoot; they add a secure feeling that offsets the tippiness of the cushioning. It's also first-class in comfort, thanks to a seamless upper and padded heel. THE VERDICT: As light, smooth, and responsive as a stability trainer gets. 12 oz; 10mm heel drop

Responsiveness: 4
Comfort: 4
