Af­ter it re­cently re­vealed it was go­ing to stop mak­ing golf clubs, Nike height­ened the at­ten­tion placed on its fu­ture golf launches. Its first foray since then, the Lu­nar Con­trol Va­por, has un­doubt­edly set the bar high.

This fu­tur­is­tic spike­less shoe has what Nike is call­ing an 'Ar­tic­u­lated In­te­grated Trac­tion out­sole' – a tread pat­tern that was in­spired by snow­mo­bile tracks.

It’s a de­sign where a series of pro­trud­ing tooth-like tracks in­crease points of con­tact with the ground, al­low­ing the shoe to con­tin­u­ously grip the turf as your weight shifts.

Chan­nels be­tween these struc­tures then aid bet­ter bal­ance by keep­ing you lower to the ground. It means you should find greater trac­tion on slopes and loose sur­faces. Plus, be­cause there are no cleats, there was more room for ex­tra foam un­der­foot to im­prove the cush­ion­ing.

Aside from the new trac­tion sys­tem, you’ll find a full-length Lu­narlon mid­sole and Nike Fly­wire which help keep your feet sta­ble and cush­ioned, plus a light­weight mi­crofi­bre up­per with a two-year water­proof guar­an­tee.

They will be avail­able in men’s and women’s sizes with an RRP of £120.
