McIlroy moonstruck by Nike Lunar Control 3

Nike Golf has introduced the Nike Lunar Control 3 shoe, featuring a wider base for increased stability to allow the golfer to maintain contact with the ground for as long as possible through impact. A carbon fibre mid-foot shank also delivers lower, lighter and more stable control.

Like its predecessors, the upper of the Nike Lunar Control 3 utilises Nike ‘Flywire’ technology for adaptive lateral support while using more robust cables to help secure the foot effectively. The upper of the shoe is made from a microfiber synthetic to offer water resistance and better durability. In the midsole, the Nike Lunar Control 3 features a lighter and softer full-length Nike Lunarlon foam to deliver lightweight, responsive cushioning.

Nike says its designers incorporated feedback from Rory McIlroy to create a lightweight performance golf shoe that is more stable and comfortable while maintaining lightweight control. McIlroy said, “I love the look of the shoe and how much lower to the ground it makes me feel. With the increased traction and stability, I am able to be more aggressive with my swing and do not have to worry about slipping.”

The Nike Lunar Control 3 is available from January in several colourways at £130. More at: www.nike.com/nikegolf
