 Nike Flyknit Lunar 1 + - Men's
Nike Flyknit Lunar 1 + - Men's
Designed for runners with a neutral gait, the Nike Flyknit Lunar 1+ is an ultra-lightweight running shoe that delivers a dynamic fit with an excellent blend of cushioning and support. A one-piece upper with knit construction is made of polyester yarns that seamlessly integrate areas of high breathability, stretch, and support where you need it most. Flywire technology is ultra-lightweight, customizable through the laces, and wraps the foot for a dynamic fit. Low-profile knit tongue adds ventilation and comfort. Fitsole sockliner conforms to the shape of your foot, providing comfort and underfoot support. Pull-tab on the heel allows for easy on and off. Reflective elements remain visible in low-light conditions. Lunarlon cushioning system features a soft, yet resilient foam core that works with a supportive, bottomless foam carrier to provide support and plush, responsive cushioning. The firmer carrier foam core offers lightweight, springy response. Duralon blown rubber forefoot lugs deliver cushioning and helps encourage a more efficient, natural range of motion through toe-off. Flex groves add enhanced articulation flexibility, and a smooth transition. BRS 1000™ carbon rubber along the heel contact zone gives maximum abrasion resistance and long-wearing durability. Wt. 8.4 oz. Runner's World Editor's Choice: March 2013. RUNNER'S WORLD is a registered trademark of Rodale Inc. All rights reserved.
 

What is the cushioning like compared to...

I'd like to know if anybody can say anything about how different the levels of cushioning or shock absorbance are between the Flyknit Lunar 1+, compared to Nike Air Max + 2013, running.

I can pretty much tell that the Air Max + is probably about as good as it gets (re: cushioning) just looking at the shoe, so I suspect that the Flyknit has less cushioning,...

So the question might be better asked in terms of how much less, i.e. half or three quarters, 50%, 75% as good, etc., and is the reduced cushioning and the lower weight worth the tradeoff.
(the difference in price is not of any concern)

Thanks.
