After the success of the men's Nike Lunar Control franchise, Nike Golf introduces the women’s Nike Lunar Control.
What makes Women's Nike Lunar Control golf shoes special?
- The first women’s shoe in the Lunarlon collection;
- the first women’s golf shoe available for customization on NIKEiD. NIKEiD enables us to create a customized par of golf shoes.
Last week I had been to Orlando in the PGA Merchadise Show where Daisuke Furuya (Product Line Manager, Nike Golf) had shown me how the Women's Nike Lunar Control golf shoes are built (see picture above).
As you can see, the control starts from the ground up. The outsole boasts seven spikes and secondary traction elements to help athletes stay connected to the ground. The shoe utilizes a carbon fiber midfoot shank for more stable control through the swing.
Nike Flywire cables wrap the foot for adaptive lateral support and smooth weight transfer through impact.
For lighter, more responsive cushioning, designers incorporated a lightweight full-length Nike Lunarlon foam in the midsole to ensure athletes stay comfortable through 18 holes.
The shoe’s upper is made from a microfiber synthetic material to provide durability, water resistance and out-of-the-box comfort.
Pricing: £130.00 €180.00 SEK 1,600.00 DKK 1,400.00 NOK 1,600.00 SFr 225.00
Michelle Wie will debut the shoe this week on the LPGA, Coates Golf Championship in Ocala, Florida.
