Nike Golf presents the new Lunar Clayton, a tasteful design combining classic golf styling with Nike's newest technology. If you hadn't noticed, Nike Golf has been on a hot streak of great designs recently, from the innovative TW '13 and '14 at the top all the way down to the casual Lunar Swingtip. The Lunar Clayton continues this trend, bringing forth what the brand calls 'the ultimate combination of craftsmanship and comfort.'
The shoe features a handcrafted, waterproof leather upper with semi-brogue detailing. A leather welt joins the upper to the shoe's modern Lunarlon midsole, while Dynamic Fit technology provides stability and lock down.
'In the past, wearing a high-end leather golf shoes meant you had to take the time to break it in. Those shoes can be rigid and uncomfortable,' said Product Line Manager Ryan Bucci. 'The Nike Lunar Clayton is a handcrafted leather shoe that is built to last but ready to wear. We obsessed the details, from the leather upper to the contrast stitching to stability and fit.'
The Nike Lunar Clayton will release in White / Venom Green / Cool Grey and Black / Black / Sail colorways on January 1, 2014, with a suggested retail price of $249.
