Nike Lunar Waverly golf shoe: Blending the best of British sports events
When Rory McIlroy wins majors, he does it in dominating fashion, doesn’t he? Wire-to-wire to win my favorite British sports event – wow!
Of course my second favorite is Wimbledon – the most iconic British sporting event of all.
Nike Golf has introduced a line of golf shoes that blends these two events seamlessly, the Nike Lunar Waverly.
Ever since I received a red and white pair of Waverlys, they have been my near-constant companions on the course. The waterproof leather uppers are styled to resemble high-end tennis shoes, and the hard-rubber “waffle lugs” on the soles make them excellent to wear to the course, after the course, and anywhere else, really.
The Waverly’s sock liner is made of a thin layer of cork, actually, which looks very chic and is naturally anti-microbial. Taking my feet in and out, though, I worry that they’ll bend and crack, but we’ll see. One this I noticed today, though is that the cork discolored my sweaty socks in such a way that my son said it looked like I’d been walking through Cheetos all morning.
Nevertheless, the Nike Lunar Waverly ($140) is ultra-comfortable right out of the box, and they make you feel as stylish as the new Champion Golfer of the Year, whether you can break 80 or not.
Congrats, Rory! See you next year at St. Andrews!
