Rory sports Ryder Cup Nike shoes

Published:

Rory McIlroy will walk the fairways at Gleneagles in two, specially-designed pairs of Nike Lunar Control II shoes for the Ryder Cup. One will be white, the other black and both feature the European blue and yellow trim.

Speaking when they launched at the start of the year, Rory said he loves how lightweight his Nike Lunar Control shoes are. “They feel like you can wear them all day, they’re incredibly comfortable.” he says. 

Nike Golf Athletes sport the Nike Lunar Control on Tour more than any other shoe because it offers the control and lightweight cushioning they need round after round. 

Nike’s proprietary full-length Lunarlon technology, a lightweight cushioning system that is highly responsive, resulting in a unique combination of comfort and support.

“Our Tour athletes are on their feet all day, every day – they know what they need out of a golf shoe to perform at their best,” says Lee Walker, Nike Golf Global Footwear Marketing Director. “We relied heavily on their insights to create a shoe that provides optimal control and comfort in a range of confident colors.” 

In addition to Lunarlon foam cushioning, the Nike Lunar Control also features Nike Flywire, another proprietary technology, which wraps from the midfoot to the heel for targeted support and lightweight structure. 

Underfoot, Nike Power Platform stabilizes the foot to provide better balance, smoother weight transfer and more control at impact. Power Transfer Zone technology works in conjunction with the Power Platform to allow for constant ground contact and a smooth transfer of power throughout the swing.
