Nike Golf has added two new models to their Versatility footwear family, the Lunar Waverly ($140) and the Lunar Mont Royal ($100), both of which are designed to be equally comfortable on and off the course.
“The Lunar Waverly and Lunar Mont Royal were really inspired by classic Nike footwear styles, and we adapted those designs for athletes who want a golf shoe with versatile appeal,” says Carl Madore, Nike Golf Innovation Design Lead. “These are shoes with incredible performance technology that are great for playing 18 holes or wearing before or after the round, too. You can hit balls at the driving range on your lunch break without ever changing your shoes. These styles are modeled after some of Nike’s first shoes but modernized to perform specifically for our sport.”
The Lunar Waverly (pictured) was created through a concerted effort between Nike Golf and Nike Sports Research Lab and features waffle traction lugs that are reminiscent of Nike's earliest shoes. Other features include Dynamic Flywire technology that provides outstanding lateral support, premium waterproof full-grain leather uppers, anti-microbial cork sock liners, and full-length Lunarlon foam cushioning.
The Lunar Mont Royal is a bit of an homage to the Nike Montreal, which was introduced in 1975 as Steve Prefontaine's signature shoe. Featuring the same famous color pattern and running-style design as Prefontaine's model, the Mont Royal is built with Lunarlon foam in the heel for extreme cushioning and a traditional Nike waffle sole for excellent grip in a variety of turf conditions.
Both models are available July 1st. (Photo: Courtesy of Nike) BUY your own Nike golf shoes in our online store For more news that golfers everywhere are talking about, follow @si_golf on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and subscribe to our YouTube video channel.
