Nike launch limited edition Lunar Control Shoes
August 23, 2011

Nike Golf Nike Golf have launched a limited edition version of its popular Lunar Control shoe to celebrate The Open Championship.
 
Developed with insights from Nike Golf athlete Paul Casey, the Nike Lunar Control delivers the optimal combination of stability and comfort in the lightest-weight performance shoe on Tour. This limited-edition version celebrates the game's most historic Major, The Open Championship, with materials and design details inspired by traditional English tailoring.
 
Every Nike Golf athlete playing at Royal St George's this week will be sporting a pair of these limited edition shoes.



Design
Taking a cue from classic British dress shoes and briefcases, the upper of the Nike Lunar Control (Limited-Edition) features tumbled leather with patent-leather accents. Herringbone tweed at the collar evokes tailored suit material, and the lining was inspired by polka-dot handkerchiefs. In a nod to the hand-finished detailing of fine tailoring, the bottom of the eyestay features a double stitch.
 
Benefits
Flywire construction for ultra-lightweight support and comfort, Ultra-lightweight springy Lunarlon cushioning for soft yet supportive shock absorption, Next-generation Nike Power Platform outsole for enhanced flexibility and natural motion, Waterproof performance leather by Sadesa
 
Support
The saddle panel of the Nike Lunar Control features Flywire for lightweight support and structure right where golfers need it. Flywire is made up of ultra-thin, ultra-strong nylon fibers that wrap the midfoot to hold it in place during activity, eliminating slippage without adding weight.
 
Cushioning
Playing 18 holes can mean walking five or six miles, which can take a toll on your feet - and your game as a result of fatigue. That's where Lunarlon cushioning comes in. Found in the heel of this shoe, it provides incredibly lightweight, responsive cushioning and a low-to-the-ground feel for unsurpassed comfort from the first hole to the last.
 
Stability
Because every golf swing starts from the ground up, the Nike Lunar Control features the Nike Power Platform outsole for stability and balance. It helps keep the foot firmly planted, evenly distributing weight for more power and a smooth transfer from backswing to follow-through. This next-generation version features a secondary Power Channel in the forefoot for greater flexibility and natural motion.
 
Additional Details
Scorpion Stinger Spikes and Tri-LOK system for excellent traction
One-year limited waterproof  
 
Availability
 
There will be a very limited run of these special Open Championship Lunar Control shoes available from 14th July at www.nikestore.com or at www.americangolf.co.uk and www.onlinegolf.co.uk - £119.99.
