The new Nike Lunar Control 3 is a golf shoe that was designed and constructed taking into account feedback and insights from the world's no. 1 golfer Rory McIlroy. The result is a high-performance, ultra-lightweight golf shoe that allows players to feel fully stable and comfortable while exercising full control over their game.

The shoe's upper features microfiber synthetic which offers increased durability, water resistance and an excellent fit. Meanwhile, the midsole features liberal use of full-length Nike Lunarlon foam for responsive, lightweight cushioning.

It was crucial that stability and control be placed high on the list of the shoe's attributes, seeing as how McIlroy has one of the most powerful golf swings around.

The Nike Lunar Control 3 will be available for purchase in the new year and will also be offered for customization on NIKEiD starting January 12.
