If you had the chance to watch Rory’s first round at The Open Championship you may have noticed a new Lunar Control 2 that he was wearing. I had previously mentioned it here. It has a grey/black/royal blue colorway and matched perfect with his innovation polo.
This unique colorway, which may or may not be commemorative to this Major, would be the third installment of a Lunar Control for The Open Championship. There was no shoe made in 2013. Here’s a look back:
2014: Lunar Control 2
2011: Lunar Control – “Recalling classic British leather goods, the upper of the Nike Lunar Golf Shoes – Open Championship Limited Edition features tumbled leather with patent-leather accents. Referencing the hand-finished detailing of fine tailoring, the bottom of the eyestay features a double stitch and herringbone tweed at the collar recalls suit material. Likewise, the lining was inspired by polka-dot handkerchiefs.”
