Review: Nike Ladies Golf Dress and Lunar Duet Classic Shoes

Published

on

I’ve never worn a golf dress, so I was a little uneasy the first time I put on Nike’s golf dress. But I found the dress to be lightweight, comfortable and true to size.

The dress itself is super light when you hold it, and feels even lighter when it’s on. It has a tank top sewn in underneath, so there is no need to worry about exposing too much. And there are removable shorts that snap into place under the dress. I requested a size 2 (I’m normally a 0 or 2 in golf apparel) and it was a little loose on me, but I wouldn’t have wanted it any tighter. I felt at ease moving around in it, and wasn’t worried about any mishaps when I made a full swing in the dress.

The one downfall of the dress was the plastic smell. I have to assume this smell comes from the dri-fit fabric, because after the first wash the smell got a lot better. After the second wash, the smell wasn’t noticeable at all. I’d say if that is the only issue with the dress, and it’s a fixable issue, that’s not too bad!

I really don’t know if Nike plans on doing more golf dresses or not, but I do know that Nike strives to bring performance materials to flattering looks. With that said, I assume there will be more dresses in the future.

Being that I’m a golf dress newbie, I haven’t looked too hard for the right shoes to go with the dress. But the Nike Lunar Duet Classic shoes worked great. They’re designed for both comfort and performance, and they transition to the street for casual wear.

The shoes offer water-resistant full-grain leather, and also have a full-length Lunarlon drop-in sockliner. If Lunarlon sounds like a foreign language, as it did to me at first, it means it has lightweight foam cushioning that makes it super comfy. And since it doesn’t have spikes, it has pressure mapped rubber traction lugs, it’s a crossover golf shoe that can be worn both on and off the golf course.

Again, Nike was spot on with sizing. I wear an 8 and the 8 was perfect on me. Nike offers an assortment of colors in the Lunar Duet collection and I want one of every color!

This particular dress and pair of shoes are from Nike’s Spring 2013 collection and comes in black or red. You can find these items in local golf stores, pro shops and online retailers. The dress retails for $120 and comes in sizes ranging from 0-16.  The shoes retail for $110 and come in sizes 5-11 (med) and 6-10 (wide.)

    Not sure why they would think it’s photoshopped. I’m guess it’s an awkward back handed compliment? Anyway, I think Nike could hit it big here with a new introduction to women’s sportswear, a dress or skirt that can be reliably worn on the course. Looks very classy! Although if there are performance justifications to wearing a high heeled version of the shoes, then I would think those would sell even better.

    Guys,

    Can you keep the comments related to the topic? And I’ll answer the awkward question so Kim doesn’t have to — these photos are not photoshopped.
