Nike Golf’s new Lunar Embellish golf shoe, available Nov. 1, combines the four-shoes-in-one concept and, according to the company, the fashionable, feminine appeal of its predecessor, the Nike Air Embellish, while delivering an updated, modernized design that is lighter and gives athletes more control at impact.
“The Nike Lunar Embellish was an exercise in refine and perfect,” said Lee Walker, Nike Golf’s global footwear marketing director. “It was important for us to evolve the best characteristics of the popular Air Embellish to make the new Lunar Embellish an even better-performing, sleeker-looking golf shoe – yet still retain the essence of what made the original Embellish so successful.”
The Nike Lunar Embellish (street price $99.99) is lighter than the previous model, weighing in at only 8.6 ounces compared to 11.9 ounces in the Nike Air Embellish. Walker said the incorporation of lighter materials and a slimmer more refined design keeps players comfortable and reduces fatigue. Each shoe features Lunarlon Technology that Walker said provides responsive cushioning in the heel and works in conjunction with Integrated Traction on the outsole to provide control at impact.
The Nike Lunar Embellish will be available with interchangeable color saddles.
