QUick recap on the Lunar Edge vs. Free Trainers, I prefer the Free Trainers over the Lunar Edge, in initial though the Lunar Edge felt a bit closer to the ground but that is because the drop off from the heel to the forefoot/toe is much deeper. When standing up while putting my weight on my heels, my toe raises and isn't planted on the ground. When I do squats for example, it is stable and doesn't feel like I would tip forward but my whole foot doesn't feel like it is flat on the ground. I also did some speed skaters and lunges and there isn't a wobble or imbalance from side-to-side (which I sometimes get with the Free Runs) but the toe does feel like it is up in the air.
That isn't the case with the Free Trainers, it felt very stable and my feet felt really planted to the ground, it just felt better for training likely because I am used to training in Free Runs? I just prefer it for training overall. One gripe though, when tightening, I feel a bit of a pinch on the side of my foot where the toe and forefoot meet. Again this is probably being used to wearing Free Runs and Lunarglides with much softer, cloth-like uppers w/o any structures unlike the the Free Trainer 5.0.
In order of preference is still FR2 > FT5.0 > LE13. I'll give both another try and see how they feel after some breaking in however I am very curious about the Free Trainer 7.0 to see if it is a bit better since it's suppose thicker or more cushioned than the 5.0 but still has that close to the ground feel and flexibility.
