Now is the time of the year when things start turning green in the golf world. Many golf courses across the Midwest and Northeast are finally shedding the remnants of the winter’s snow, and with Masters week only 11 days away the final rush of Augusta-inspired gear is hitting the shelves at golf retailers.

One of the most sought after Masters-inspired products for this year could be Nike’s limited-edition Lunar Control, Lunar Clayton and TW ’14 golf shoes.

“Last year we released a limited edition version of the TW’ 13, and it was a huge success,” says Lee Walker, Nike Golf Footwear Product Director. “For 2014, we wanted to expand that unique offering to include three of our most popular models – the TW’ 14, Lunar Control and Lunar Clayton – featuring an infusion of color in a trio of powerful yet understated designs.”

Understated is the key word. The limited-edition Lunar Control ($160), Lunar Clayton ($250) and TW ’14 ($180) pay homage to the season’s first major without going overboard, which is easy to do with Augusta green and yellow. While buyers will likely save the limited-edition shoes for special occasions, their white uppers and tasteful green accents make them a potential everyday option.

Nike athletes will be sporting the shoes at Augusta, but golfers who live in colder climates might want to keep them in the box until their courses dry up. Plenty of things look good with Augusta green, but mud stains are not one of them.

  1. Look like poorly made Etonic running shoes from the ’80’s. Sorry but golf shoes are golf shoe and track shoes are track shoes. I have trouble with students all the time because “track” shoes have poor lateral and linear support. Maybe the reason Tiger’s back has become an issue.

    • Lol, seriously Dave? Nike is the leading producer of shoes in the world. I’m pretty sure they have a good idea as to how to put a quality shoe together. Tiger is highly specific as to what he wanted out of his shoe. And if you try them on, they fit like a glove and feel awesome. Nike shoes provide me with great stability compared to the Adidas that I tried. I’m not going to sit here and say that Nike’s quality is the best, compared to a FootJoy, for example, but my experience with Nike golf shoes has been very good.

      Is Kobe’s ankle injury a result of his shoes too?

  2. Just pulled the trigger on the Lunar Control. Will be my third pair of those shoes. Really enjoy them. Plus my knee’s don’t swell after walking 18 (tore acl three years ago.)which I can’t say about a lot of shoes.

    • I tore my ACL a few years back also and have been having trouble with swelling. Did you put an insert in the shoes or wear them out of the box? trying to find a shoe that helps with swelling after a round.

      • Gents, if you’re experiencing swelling with your ACL’s after golf, you aren’t doing enough IMO off the course to ensure that doesn’t happen. I have had 2 full reco’s on both knees over the last 5 years on mine, and have no issues at all with golf. At least once per week I knock out the rowing machine for 45 minutes and then the gym day consists of controlled squats, extension, hamstring curls, weighted hip swings, lunges, leg press and calf raises. I would highly recommend working on both and you won’t experience any swelling. Also club-head speed is 107-110mph with no issues stabilizing…
