The Nike Lunar Mont Royal golf shoe is homage to Nike Montreal, which was first unveiled back in 1975 and it was the first signature shoe built by the company, dedicated to the legendary athlete Steve Prefontaine. With this modern reiteration, Nike designed a golf shoe featuring the same/iconic Montreal color blocking design and a silhouette inspired from the running-shoe, this time especially for golf aficionados with a taste for recent history.
With a price tag of $100, the Lunar Mont Royal comes with Nike’s Lunarlon technology, i.e. special foam injected in the heel and advanced no-sew tech in the midfoot. Also, Nike added their proprietary waffle sole for providing you with exceptional grip, control and traction, thanks to the outsole which comes with a waffle tread designed for maintaining traction during your swings on all types of turfs.
The upper is built using synthetic leather and mesh for ventilated comfort and durability while the cushioning foam in the heel makes for a springy/soft ride. In terms of design, the Nike Lunar Mont Royal looks like casual running shoes while providing you with a cushiony feel during your golf game. Featuring a spikeless design, the Mont Royal are excellent for the casual player, offering good arch support and being more of a running shoe with waffle treads than regular/dedicated golf shoes. These stylish/run inspired shoes will provide you with decent traction and comfort all day long and you can wear them everywhere, both on and off golf course. The pricing is right for what they offer, the colorways are numerous and versatile and these shoes offer great breathability for your feet, especially in in warm climates. The insole is made from soft cork, it feels pretty good on the foot and it will never catch any bad smell thanks to the organic material it’s being made from. The synthetic upper and the rubber are very easy to clean and to maintain.
