Nike Golf really came out with a winner this year with the Lunar Control golf shoe. The original four colorways were all well received in the marketplace, and the limited edition colorways for the four majors were equally impressive. To really sum up my thoughts on the year for Nike Golf’s apparel and footwear I would have to say it was the Year of the Lunar.
The shoe was the most worn on tour by the Nike Athletes and perhaps for the first time, we really saw some traction from non-Nike sponsored players. It was the shoe of choice for Asian Tour player Liang Wen Chong, European Tour player Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, and PGA Tour player Kevin Chappell. Beyond the Major editions and the retail versions, we also had a chance to see special editions for college teams, and some editions emblazoned with European soccer teams.
Here are some of my favorite ones of the year. Ok, so the Arsenal edition is something I concocted, but it would have been great to see! Enjoy!
