Distinguishing itself from the original, the new Nike Lunar Control golf shoe features a full-length Lunarlon cushioning system, providing lightweight comfort, optimal ground-feel, and all-day support throughout the entire shoe.
Proprietary Lunarlon cushioning system offers comfort and stability where athletes need it most. The Lunarlon Foam midsole is lightweight, durable and highly responsive, resulting in a unique combination of cushioning and support.
Another difference is increased Nike Flywire technology, wrapping from the midfoot to the heel to provide targeted support and lightweight structure.
A Nike Power Platform stabilizes the foot to offer better balance, smoother weight transfer and more power through impact. Working in conjunction with the Power Platform is the patent pending Power Transfer Zone technology which allows for constant contact and a smooth transfer of power at impact.
This construction of the saddle panel combined with a carved out TPU, works with the foot to allow natural range of motion and improved flexibility. This technology not only elevates performance, but it has also reduced the weight of the original Nike Lunar Control by more than half an ounce per shoe.
The Nike Lunar Control will be available in Canada in January 2013 with a suggested retail price of $180 CDN and will be available in five colorways:
- Black/Reflect Silver-Metallic Pewter-Volt
- White/Reflect Silver-PR Platinum-PR P
- White/Reflect Silver-Hyper Red-Anthr
- White/Reflect Silver-Volt-Volt
- White/Reflect Silver-Pht Bl-Anthrc
