– New women’s golf shoe features Nike’s lightweight Lunarlon technology and Dynamic Flywire for maximized comfort and support –
BEAVERTON, Ore. (December 12, 2014) – Nike introduces the Nike Lunar Empress, a women’s golf shoe featuring innovative technologies – including Nike Lunarlon, Dynamic Flywire and Integrated Traction – perfect for every athlete. Available at retail January 1, 2014, the Lunar Empress offers the benefits of natural motion, cushioned comfort, control and breathability combined in a waterproof shoe.
“We’ve loaded up the new Lunar Empress with performance features designed to benefit golfers of all levels who want a flexible yet supportive shoe with amazing comfort,” says Lee Walker, Nike Golf Global Footwear Marketing Director. “It’s been fun working with golfers during product testing for the Lunar Empress and seeing their reactions to the shoe – how excited they are to welcome the fresh, sporty design to their ensemble and also their surprise at just how light it is.”
The Lunar Empress is extremely lightweight — only 7.4 ounces per shoe – and features responsive, full-length Lunarlon cushioning that runs from heel to toe for a comfortable ride. Dynamic Flywire technology, a lightweight series of supportive fibers, automatically adjusts during motion and provides targeted mid-foot support. The shoe’s superior flexibility allows for full range of natural motion, designed to move with and support the foot throughout the entire round, while an engineered dot pattern aids in breathability.
The rubber Integrated Traction system — molded spikes integrated into the outsole in different geometric shapes — runs the full length of the shoe and provides a more stable ride with better ground control.
