Nike unveil Masters Limited Edition Lunar Control footwear
April 5, 2012

Nike Golf athletes will be wearing Limited Edition Lunar Control Footwear at the 2012 Masters and Facebook fans of Nike have the chance to win special limited edition prize packs.

Nike Golf has created limited edition Lunar Control footwear that will be worn by many of the Nike Golf athletes at the first major championship of the season, The Masters.

Nike is always striving to serve the athlete by combining groundbreaking innovation with longstanding tradition, and nothing is more special than a commemorative shoe designed to perform on the sport’s premiere stage.

Reigning Masters Champion, Charl Schwartzel, will be wearing the limited edition shoe as well as Paul Casey, Kevin Chappell, Stewart Cink, Simon Dyson, Ross Fisher, Lucas Glover and Francesco Molinari. The footwear complements this season’s Tour Performance apparel, providing the athletes head-to-toe style and tour proven performance.

The limited edition Lunar Control is not available for purchase, but fans of Nike Golf’s Facebook page will have the opportunity to win one of 20 special Masters packs which include a limited edition green Method putter and a dozen green Swoosh 20XI balls.

“It’s fun to do something special for our athletes - to help them enjoy this occasion and mark the moment,” said Lee Walker, Nike Golf’s Footwear Product Director.

Nike Golf has accelerated footwear innovation in lightweight performance. Delivering stability in a lightweight fashion, Lunar Control provides exceptional cushioning for walking the course and the Flywire stability for powerful golf swings. The Lunarlon foam midsole proves durable and highly responsive yet offers the underfoot comfort and ground feel players desire.

This Nike Limited Edition Lunar Control shoe is made with premium full-grain waterproof leather enhanced with brogue details on the vamp and quarter. The Nike Lunarlon cushioning pops in green on the all-white shoe. The Nike Flywire technology appears stealth-like and a patent leather Swoosh is outlined in detailed green stitching. Complementing the classy silhouette are the green laces and a green sock liner.

Each pair of limited edition Lunar Control includes a shoe bag to protect the footwear between rounds. Walker states, “The bag was inspired by the signature white overalls worn by caddies at Augusta National, brought together through a combination of all white canvas and leather with green draw string and embroidered detailing.”

Lunar Control retails at £120 from all golf retailers and speciality stores.
