Nike’s new Lunar Embellish golf shoe will be available at retail November 1st.
It combines the four-shoes-in-one concept and fashionable, feminine appeal of its predecessor, the Nike Air Embellish, while delivering an updated, modernised design that is lighter and gives athletes more control at impact.
“The Nike Lunar Embellish was an exercise in refine and perfect,” says Lee Walker, Nike Golf global footwear marketing director. “It was important for us to evolve the best characteristics of the popular Air Embellish to make the new Lunar Embellish an even better-performing, sleeker-looking golf shoe – yet still retain the essence of what made the original Embellish so successful.”
The Nike Lunar Embellish is significantly lighter than the previous model, weighing in at only 0.24 kg compared to 0.34 kg in the Nike Air Embellish. The incorporation of lighter materials and a slimmer, more refined design keeps athletes comfortable and reduces fatigue, allowing them to forget about their feet and focus on their round. Lunarlon Technology provides responsive cushioning in the heel and works in conjunction with Integrated Traction on the outsole to provide control at impact.
One signature feature that hasn’t changed is the opportunity to customise the Nike Lunar Embellish with interchangeable colour saddles. The shoe comes with two reversible saddles – four colours in total – allowing female golfers to match their shoes to their outfits, bags and more on any given day. The different saddle options, besides making it easier to accessorise, provide adjustable mid-foot support. A new water-resistant synthetic upper crafted with a no-sew technology film overlay provides additional support and durability throughout the entire length of the shoe.
