If you watched The Masters last week you may have noticed that Rory did not wear the max orange Lunar Control Vapors as indicated in his Saturday scripting, and that both Rory and Jason Day wore special “PE” shoes during the tournament. Here are some details on them.
This Nike Lunar Control Vapor PE that was created for Rory McIlroy boasts a multi-color iridescent outsole. The unique TPU tread features a protruding series of tooth-like tracks, allowing for maximum traction and continuous engagement with the ground as weight shifts from heel to toe.
This Air Zoom TW71 was designed for Jason Day’s final round in Augusta. The all-black upper matches his head-to-toe black look for the day, while the iridescent gold plate on the outsole and Swoosh were inspired by the medal given to the winner of the tournament.
The Air Zoom TW71 features midfoot lockdown with an internal midfoot bootie and superior response thanks to a full-length TPU plate with heel Zoom air.
