Paul Casey debuts a limited colorway of Nike’s new “Lunar Control Vapor 2” golf shoes

Published

on

We spotted new Nike Golf shoes on the feet of Paul Casey at the 2017 Tour Championship, which at first appeared to be some sort of unreleased version of Nike’s Lunar Control Vapor shoes. Like the original Vapors released in 2016, Casey’s shoes at the Tour Championship feature what looks to be the “Articulated Traction” soles that have ridges instead of spikes.

The man himself, however, has confirmed on our Instagram post that these are a limited colorway of Nike’s new and unreleased Lunar Control Vapor 2 golf shoes.

PaulCaseyInstagramThanks for clearing that up, Paul.

GolfWRX members have extremely mixed opinions in our forums about the new shoes and the dual colorway. Make sure to read the full thread here, and to check out more photos of the shoe itself.

    These shoes should be declared ‘illegal’ because of the dual sole pattern. Golf shoe outer soles should be plain and uniform and not be designed to provide undue advantage.
    Many years ago there was a golf shoe that had internally ‘canted’ insoles that provided better alignment between the foot sole and leg angle so as to better wedge the foot and shoe into the ground. They were banned.
    So why not ban these shoes with outer sole patterns designed to do the same thing?!!

          This comment is an absolute peach. You’re joking right? You just want to ban anything that is an improvement on the past? What about your 460cc driver? Your iron shafts? Your wedges with more and deeper grooves? Your ball?!

          Better go ahead and return every club in your bag if that’s the case. Take back your motocaddy that saved you energy, and your breathable waterproofs that keep you dry without cooking you. Take back your golf shift that flexes as you swing.

          Get some perspective dude. Spend less time talking about the past and start thinking about the future of golf.

          ‘Juniors’ might just be the only thing keeping your club going…

What’s the optimal putter color? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing putter colors. WRXer ‘BankBank’ has come to the conclusion that he putts far better with a black putter than any other color and is interested in hearing the color preference of fellow members.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • sevenfourate: “I love the long-term ease of maintenance of a plain Stainless finish. But like do also love the contrast a black putter head gives. But having a marked/chipped up black finish would drive me nuts. I was at the BMW PGA at Wentworth last week. And saw a surprising number of players using the Red Odyssey putters. Which surprised me as they look quite ‘busy’ at address IMO……”
  • caniac6: “I am using a stainless Cameron, and I like it, but it’s just a bit too shiny. I really prefer a stainless with a finish like the old stainless Pings.”
  • GHIN and Juice: “I love an oil can finish, but I also hate getting rust marks on the head, so I’ll putt with an oil can finish until I can’t stand the rust anymore, and then I’ll change it to a pro platinum/ stainless look.”
  • Fairway14: “My preference is a carbon steel head with a shiny black oxide finish.”
  • iknowbagu: “Color never really mattered to me until I got my current putter. White with a black sightline that works in perfect symmetry with my white ball with a black line just has me really confident with my alignment when I’m over the ball.”
