Looks like those will be a great improvement to an already good product!

I tried these on today and they are a big improvement for the already comfortable 2012 Lunar's.  Great hold on the foot with the Flywire as well.  I'm really liking the colors as well.

No doubt the Lunar Control are the best golf shoe Nike makes.  Never owned a pair but if I went back to spikes these would be it, great looking quality shoes.

Not enough to beat out the new Sensei from True Linkswear, True's are so comfortable its scary.

These shoes do not excite me. After the TW13 shoes everything else Nike comes out with seems sub-par. I absolutely love the TW13's though.

Did you happen to watch something called "The Olympics"? If not, take a look at the track spikes worn by 80% of the sprinters.

Maybe it's just me, but I am not going for the "Olympic Sprinter" look when I am on the course.

Nor would I. That's why they make all different colors to choose from.

Had 5 pairs of the original Lunars and found them to be one of the best and most comfortable shoes I've worn for the past decade.  Tried the new version -- ugh!  God awful feel on my feet with that horrendous design that digs into my achillies tendon (originals were rounded and perfect for me).  Least comfortable shoes for my feet that I think I've ever worn.  Agree with some of the other posters -- original design is much better.  The new schemes scream, "I wanna copy adidas!"  Gonna stock up on the originals if I can find them.

They would probably get over it eventually

Liking these. Alot. I just got a pair of the '12 model but I'll return those so I can get these instead. I love how the technology was revamped and improved in the cushioning mid-sole.

I love the way Nike shoes feel, much better than my Footjoy's IMO, but i can't stand that after about a year the glue at the tip of the toe box goes bad and starts to separate the sole from the toe. I have had three pairs of Nike's and each pair has done this anywhere from 8-14 months after i started using them.

I'm not a huge fan of the new Nike designs.
I'd wear the Lunar Controls if I had to choose something, but am I the only one who thinks the TW '13s are the ugliest golf shoes ever?

I'll just stick with my Dunk NGs and Swingtips.

They had them at the PGA Superstore in Atlanta yesterday. $159.99 which i thought seemed low, I expected them to be more expensive.
