Need To Know

Extreme stability and Lunar foam cushioning
Nike
PRICE: £119.99     YEAR: from 2011

From the moment I opened the box I knew I was going to be experiencing something special. I was so excited that I took pictures on my phone and emailed them to AP.

As soon as I slipped on Nike's limited edition Open Championship Lunar Control shoes, the memories of Darren Clarke's emotional three-shot victory came flooding back and inspired my game.

The Lunar Control shoes provided me with extreme stability when swinging through the ball and tremendous comfort thanks to Nike's Lunar foam cushioning system and a dual-density foam midsole.

And despite seeing the heavens open midway through my round, it gave me a great opportunity to test the shoes out in the damp conditions. With waterproof performance leather by SADESA and full-grain leather with a hydrophobic surface on hand to deal with torrential downpours, there was simply no way the rain was going to leak through into my feet.

Other features include flywire midfoot saddle support, traction boosting scorpion stinger spikes with a tri-lock system and cushioning heel support in the golf swing.

Plain and simple - if you've ever considered trying a pair of Nike's golf shoes, the Lunar Control should be the ones you choose. Aesthetically, they're as traditional and as comfortable as anything Nike has ever made, yet they maintain a slight modern edge.
