If you were looking through our photos from the Children's Miracle Network Hospital Classic, then you've seen photos of Nike's snazzy new golf shoe, the revamped "Lunar Control."
The Lunar Control, available Jan. 1, 2013, features a full-length Lunarlon cushioning system, providing lightweight comfort, optimal ground-feel, and all-day support throughout the entire shoe, according to a Nike Golf press release.
The Lunarlon cushioning system is a proprietary technology from Nike that offers comfort and stability where athletes need it most. The Lunarlon Foam midsole is lightweight, durable and highly responsive, resulting in a unique combination of cushioning and support.
Another differentiating detail from the original Lunar Control is increased Nike Flywire technology, wrapping from the midfoot to heel to provide targeted support and lightweight structure.
A Nike Power Platform stabilizes the foot to offer better balance, smoother weight transfer and more power through impact. Working in conjunction with the Power Platform is the patent pending Power Transfer Zone technology which allows for constant contact and a smooth transfer of power at impact.
The Lunar Control was also made lighter -- the total weight for the pair has been reduced from 14.6 ounces to 13.4 ounces (0.6 ounces per shoe).
Here are the key features, pricing and color options:
- Waterproof premium leather upper
- Flywire midfoot saddle
- Full length Lunarlon cushioning

- 2-year Waterproof Warranty
