Rory McIlroy‘s reputation for attacking the ball is earned with a club speed that reaches more than 120 MPH, and it’s this facet of his game that influenced the development of the Nike Lunar Control 4, designed to provide the ultimate base. Made with direct feedback from McIlroy himself, the shoe has Dynamic Nike Flywire for lateral support in the midfoot, while an external heel counter helps lock the foot in place through the swing. Enhanced fit comes courtesy of an upper re-engineered with a lightweight microfiber, as well as a tongue redesigned to wrap ergonomically around the ankle, subsequently providing a natural break when walking. The same high-performance outsole and Nike Lunarlon midsole from the Lunar Control 3 is carried over for superior traction cushioning. A large Swoosh on the vamp, borrowed from the Nike Mercurial football boot, completes the look. Available in three introductory colorways for men (black/white, white/wolf grey, white/bright crimson) and women (black/white, white/wolf grey, pure platinum/bright crimson), the Nike Lunar Control 4 will launch November 27th on, followed by a release through select Nike Golf retailers on December 1st.

Release Date: 11/27/15 (Friday)
