Combining groundbreaking innovation with longstanding tradition, Nike Golf has created the limited edition Lunar Control footwear that will be worn by most of the Nike Golf athletes playing in The Open Championship later this month.
Nike is always striving to serve the athlete, and nothing proves more special than a commemorative shoe designed for its athletes to perform on the sport’s premiere stage.
Athletes wearing the shoe will be Paul Casey, Charl Schwartzel, Stewart Cink, Simon Dyson, Ross Fisher, Lucas Glover, Francesco Molinari, Stephen Ames, James Morrison, and Scott Pinckney. The footwear complements this season’s Tour Performance apparel, providing the athletes head-to-toe style and tour proven performance.
The Open Championship limited edition Lunar Control is available to purchase at a selected number of retailers across the UK along with limited edition blue Method Concept putters and blue Swoosh 20XI balls.  The shoes are also available to buy at
Fans of Nike Golf’s newly launched Twitter @NikeGolfEU will have the opportunity to win special Open Championship limited edition gear, with the 1,000th follower receiving a blue Method Concept putter.
“It’s fun to do something special for our athletes - to help them enjoy this occasion and mark the moment,” said Lee Walker, Nike Golf’s Footwear Product Director.
Nike Golf has accelerated footwear innovation by taking lightweight performance to the next level. Delivering stability in a lightweight fashion, Lunar Control provides exceptional cushioning for walking the course and the Flywire stability for powerful golf swings. The Lunarlon foam midsole proves durable and highly responsive yet offers the underfoot comfort and ground feel players desire.
Lunar Control retails at £120 from all golf retailers and speciality stores.
