Comfort, Control and Customization: The Women’s Nike Lunar Control
NIKEiD gives golf athletes the ability to create a completely unique pair of golf shoes. U.S. Women’s Open champion Michelle Wie will design her own shoes and wear several different custom colorways on tour this season.
“I love to design shoes on NIKEiD and have been doing it for a long time,” Wie said. “I’m excited to be able to design my golf shoes now and showcase my creativity on the course.”
Wie will debut the shoe next week on the LPGA, Coates Golf Championship in Ocala, Florida.
The women’s Nike Lunar Control provides all-day comfort and support to help Wie and other athletes stay in control of their game through an entire round of golf.
Control starts from the ground up. The outsole boasts seven spikes and secondary traction elements to help athletes stay connected to the ground. The shoe utilizes a carbon fiber midfoot shank for more stable control through the swing.
Nike Flywire cables wrap the foot for adaptive lateral support and smooth weight transfer through impact.
For lighter, more responsive cushioning, designers incorporated a lightweight full-length Nike Lunarlon foam in the midsole to ensure athletes stay comfortable through 18 holes.
The shoe’s upper is made from a microfiber synthetic material to provide durability, water resistance and out-of-the-box comfort.
The women’s Nike Lunar Control is available now for customization on NIKEiD as well as on nike.com and at select retailers in three colorways.
