Nike’s new (read: not Tiger Woods) flagship golfer, Rory McIlroy, has been making waves as he and Jordan Spieth battle for golf dominance. Nike has responded by aggressively pushing his products, both on and off the course. Just recently they have released the new Nike Lunar Control 4 with Rory as the face, and the shoes look great. Nike designed the shoe with Rory in mind, as his ability to swing the club harder than almost anyone, but remain controlled, was an inspiration.
This insight played a major role in the development of the Nike Lunar Control 4, which is designed to provide the ultimate base for any golfer. If you’re like most of us, the ball is going straight into the woods anyways, but the shoe may be able to help just a bit. Dynamic Nike Flywire technology provides lateral support in the midfoot, while a new, robust external heel counter helps lock the foot in place through the entire swing. The upper has been reengineered using a lightweight microfiber that provides a soft, unrestricted feel. The athletic design of the Nike Lunar Control 4 is highlighted by a Swoosh logo design on the vamp, an iconic aesthetic that is almost too cool for a golf course. We’ll let it fly just this one time.
