Nike have launched the Lunar Control 4 golf shoe, which Rory McIlroy has helped to design and create.
The shoe features dynamic Nike Flywire technology, which provides lateral support in the midfoot, while a new, robust external heel counter helps lock the foot in place through the swing.
The upper is reengineered of a lightweight microfiber that provides a soft, unrestricted feel. The tongue has been redesigned to wrap ergonomically around the ankle and provide a natural break when walking. The athletic design of the Nike Lunar Control 4 is highlighted by a Swoosh logo design on the vamp, an iconic aesthetic most familiar in the Nike Mercurial football boot.
“I have been looking forward to wearing this shoe for quite some time. It’s a design I’ve been involved with ever since my first year with Nike,” says McIlroy, who will wear the Nike Lunar Control 4 his upcoming tournament in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. “They give me the confidence needed to maximize power in my swing with reliable control on the ground, especially off the tee.”
Available in three colourways for men (black/white, white/wolf grey, white/bright crimson) and for women (black/white, white/wolf grey, pure platinum/bright crimson), the Nike Lunar Control 4 will launch November 17 on nike.com at select retailers.
