Nike launches new footwear styles

Nike Golf has introduced two new footwear styles with the Lunar Waverly and Lunar Mont Royal joining the Lunar Clayton as part of the Versatility footwear family. Nike Golf designers drew inspiration from Nike’s footwear heritage to create innovative styles inspired by running and court sport silhouettes perfect for both on and off the golf course.

The Nike waffle sole featured on the Lunar Waverly and Lunar Mont Royal provides a more aggressive tread for superior grip and control on course, while echoing Nike’s storied history in athletic footwear. The Lunar Waverly (pictured) is designed to be as comfortable on the course as it is off with Nike designers using pressure-mapping analysis to zero in on how the foot moves during the swing to determine the size, height, hardness and overall configuration of the waffle lugs. The Lunar Waverly has an RRP of £90.

The Lunar Mont Royal features Lunarlon foam in the heel and modern no-sew technology in the midfoot, and also utilises the traditional Nike waffle sole for grip and control. Nike Golf footwear designers constructed the outsole with waffle tread rolling up around the toe and inner side of the foot to maintain traction through the swing as the foot pushes off the ground. The Lunar Mont Royal has an RRP of £65.

Carl Madore, Nike Golf Innovation design lead said, “The Lunar Waverly and Lunar Mont Royal were really inspired by classic Nike footwear styles, and we adapted those designs for athletes who want a golf shoe with versatile appeal. These are shoes with incredible performance technology that are great for playing 18 holes or wearing before or after the round, too. You can hit balls at the driving range on your lunch break without ever changing your shoes. These styles are modelled after some of Nike’s first shoes but modernised to perform specifically for our sport.”
