Full-length Lunarlon technology, a lightweight cushioning system designed to be responsive, and Nike Flywire that wraps from the midfoot to the heel for support and lightweight structure, are two of the features in the new Lunar Control shoes.
“They feel like you can wear them all day, they’re incredibly comfortable,” said Rory McIlroy.
Paul Casey added that “the impeccable traction with the ground” was the key to his decision to lace up in Lunar Controls.
“The shoe is designed to be in contact with the ground as much as possible and that enables me to push off the ground with more control,” he added.
Comfort is Kyle Stanley’s reason for wearing them. “They’re ready to wear, right out of the box,” he said. “I wouldn’t wear anything else.”
The Lunar Controls are available in colours such as Venom green, Military blue and Challenge red against white and black premium full-grain leather uppers.
“Our tour athletes are on their feet all day, every day. They know what they need out of a golf shoe to perform at their best,” said Lee Walker, Nike Golf’s global footwear marketing director.
“We relied heavily on their insights to create a shoe that provides optimal control and comfort in a range of confident colours,” added Walker.
Underfoot, Nike Power Platform is used to stabilize the foot to provide better balance, smoother weight transfer and more control at impact.
Power Transfer Zone technology works in conjunction with the Power Platform to allow for constant ground contact and a smooth transfer of power throughout the swing.
