Rory McIlroy said he needs such a golf shoe that helps him to attack the ball with velocity while maintaining control over his swing arc. This insight played a major role in the development of the Nike Lunar Control 4, which is designed to provide that ultimate base.
What are the novelty features of the new Nike Lunar Control 4?
Just like in previous Nike Lunar Control golf shoes, we can find Dynamic Nike Flywire technology that provides lateral support in the midfoot, while a new, robust external heel counter helps lock the foot in place through McIlroy’s swing. I think FootJoy HyperFlex‘s Optimized Performance Stabilizer is more likely to provide better stability thanks to the plastic mesh around the heel.
The upper is reengineered of a lightweight microfiber to provide a soft, unrestricted feel. The tongue has been redesigned to wrap ergonomically around the ankle and provide a natural break when walking.
What is far from my taste is the Swoosh logo design on the vamp. They look far better on Nike Mercurial football boots.
The new Nike Lunar Control 4 will be available in 3 colorways for men (black/white, white/wolf grey, white/bright crimson) and for women (black/white, white/wolf grey, pure platinum/bright crimson).
