Can any one give me pros and cons of these two? I have the lunar 12 and looking for new pair this year. Last year lunars are great, but I don't care for the cracking on top.
Any feed back would be great.
Thanks.

I find that the LC 13's fit my foot better. More room in the toe and a secure fit in the heel.

The TW's are sized very strangely. i wear a 12 wide in the lunars and the 12 wide in the TW's wasn't even close to fitting. Also the TW's felt very heavy and clunky compared to the lunars. The lunars were only 1.5 ounces heavier than the adizeros, i have a postage scale and i was curious because they both felt light and i wanted to see how much lighter the adizeros were and it turned out it wasn't much lighter.

LC is one of the best shoes I've ever worn (12 and 13). Very light, stable, etc.

The TW, when you first try it on, can feel very weird. However, once you get on grass--where the shoe is obviously meant to perform--it's unlike anything I've ever worn. Getting the right size can be a bit of a challenge (half size up for me).

Do think they are an upgrade over last years? I thought last years where the best feeling shoes?

I try the TW's on at every store and it ends up being a different size ever time I try them on by a half size. Do the new lunars crack and crease across the top of the foot? I heard that the TW's don't

I love the TW13s because they are just like my Nike Free running shoes. I found that my TW13s were the same size as my FJ Icons. They are really flexible and SOOO comfortable. Out of the box, they feel a little tight in the toes, but once you start walking around they are fine.
It's only another $60 for the TW13s versus the Lunar Control, so I would definitely get them. you won't be disappointed.

I went with the 2013 Lunar Controls instead of the TWs.   Lunar Controls were more comfortable and looked nicer in my opinion. Can't go wrong with either pair....also someone mentioned the adipures, and those are really good as well. I own 2 pairs, and they are my favorite.

I have had my TW13 for almost a year now and they have held up great.  With the exception of the cleats wearing out on the bottom they look practically brand new and I walk a ton in them.  I have two pairs (White pair and a Black pair) of last years Lunar Control and like yourself the creasing drives me nuts.  My lunars would also not stay laced up over a full round.  Haven't had that problem with TW13.  Overall the TW13 is a superior shoe over last years Lunar.  IMO they look better, are slightly more comfortable and much more durable.

Can't comment on this years though.  I did try on the Adizero this weekend and they were a fail (felt like track spikes).  My next purchase will be a pair of Ecco Biom or a white pair of TW13 (unless they release a new pair of TW14 :) ).

I have the TW13's in black and white. Like them a lot. They're more stable (more bend to the sole, not boardy) than a typical golf shoes and have a lot of traction. They remind me of the Griffey baseball shoes I wore growing up, somewhat different from the traditional but definitely a performer. However, the heel support is kinda bad in the TW13 and they're not as good of a walker's shoe as they should be but I feel like that's the case with any nike shoe. They feel amazing for an hour or two and lack support after a few hours.

I've got two pair of TW13 and really like them, I went up a half size in the TW13 (11.5 in lunar to 12 in TW13).  I think the two feel completely different though.  I have the Lunar 12 and think they are very comfortable but they give me blisters on my heels (I tried about 6 rounds of golf with them) until I'd had enough, I still wear them when I practice because they are still comfortable but just don't know why they give me blisters when I walk in them.  I guess they don't fit my feet right or something.

The TW13 fit a little strange at first, as some others have said they are a little tight in the toes at first and feel too small but after a round they are awesome.  The sole is so soft it grips the ground better than any other shoe I've tried.  I really like them, they aren't may favorite to look at and I think they look goofy with pants still but I can't beat them to walk in.

Thanks for all the replies! Still don't know what to get. The lunar look better with pants and the TW looks better in shorts.
Is tiger the only player that wears the TW's? It seem like all the staffers have the lunar!

Gotta decide with a blindeye so pick up whatever that feels best. I have tried them and both of them are really comfortable, but the LC feels a lot more stable. What you can do too is buy the LC first, play a couple of rounds and if you don't like it, exchange it for the TW13 (or vice versa). Nike is pretty lenient to their retailers when it comes to returns so the store that you bought it from should exchange the shoes with no problem.

My advice: The TW13 is "true" to size so if you're wearing an 11, get an 11. Make sure you get measured for width and DO NOT upsize even though it feels tight when you try them. If you measured 11 (size) D (width), get an 11D. The shoe is designed to be snug for support/stability. The LC you can probably upsize, but not recommended.

I wore the LC 12 prior to the TW 13 release.  Once I got the TW 13 in white, I have not touched the LC 12.  I tried on the LC 13 and they just didn't feel as good as the TW 13, so I bought a second pair of TW 13 in black.  With the TW 13s, I never notice any foot fatigue anymore.  Like others have said, the TW 13 had to size up 1/2 size compared to the LC.

I have two pairs of TW13 and they are extremely comfortable, clean easily, and don't wrinkle like leather shoes. I tried on LC13, but much prefer the free/form fitting that TW13 provides. Both shoes do look good though.

I preferred the Lunar Control 13.  I really wanted to like the TW 13, but they just never felt right.  I got my Lunar Controls last week, and they feel great.  Very comfortable and stable.  I actually had to go down a 1/2 size from an 11, which I wore in all my Adidas golf shoes, and my Lunar Control 12s.

I have the lc12's and just got the lc13's. The 13's are a big improvement over the 12's, which I loved. The 13's are softer, lighter and have a bit more cushion walking. So far as holding up, it's too early to tell, but the softer leather seems like it may not crack like the 12's do. Both great shoes. Can't comment as to the tw's, but I love my free running shoes, which i believe are the concept for the tw's.

Not a comparison but I wanted to try both today and there were no TW's in my size but I was impressed by the comfort and fit of the LC's.  They seemed as soft or softer than my FJ Contours.  The LC seemed almost too "squishy", any stability issues with them?

Saw all these in person, the 13 LC is much improved over the 2012 version.  The TW's feel heavy, LC's like you are standing on pillows.  The LC are much "clunkier" on your foot.  Two completely different shoes, should be easy to decide between.

Exactly. Just try them on, and you'll know immediately.

I originally thought I would prefer the TWs, but I was shocked by how heavy they were on my feet. LCs feell plusher, lighter, and the stability is still really good. Just like my Nike Lunar Eclipse running shoes.
