Rory's Fancy New Nike Lunar Control 3 Shoes

When Rory McIlroy stepped onto the first tee today for his final round at the Deutsche Bank Championship yesterday, he was sporting the rather fetching new limited edition Nike Lunar Control 3 golf shoes.

Just Shoe It!

“We set out to be disruptive with this shoe,” explains James Arizumi, Nike Golf’s Design Director of footwear. “We challenge the status quo by placing the Swoosh on top of the shoe in the toe area, instead of on the side.”

The aforementioned Swoosh appears in metallic silver, set against a bright orange and white upper, which also employs Flywire technology for adaptive lateral support. Additionally, the Nike Lunar Control 3 boasts a wide base for stability, that allows the athlete to maintain contact with the ground for as long as possible through ball impact. The shoe’s carbon fiber midfoot shank offers lightweight stability while its midsole features full-length Lunarlon foam that delivers lightweight, responsive cushioning.

Mmmm,... Comfy

McIlroy and a variety of Nike Golf athletes will wear the limited edition Lunar Control 3 in the final round of upcoming competitive events. I wonder what Tiger thinks of them? Maybe they've got some in black for him.
