MCILROY SETS AN UNCONVENTIONAL ON-COURSE TONE
When Rory McIlroy steps onto the first tee today for his final round at the Deutsche Bank Championship, the Nike Golf athlete will look to disrupt the status quo with both his swing and his shoe: a limited edition Nike Lunar Control 3.
“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.
McIlroy and a variety of Nike Golf athletes will wear the limited edition Lunar Control 3 in the final round of upcoming competitive events.
