What we say:

 

Despite mixed reviews, we can’t help but like the Nike Lunar Control 3. We’re impressed by the lightweight, leather upper that is both waterproof and breathable. This feature is quite hard to come by, so we really appreciate it when we see it. The performance/traction/support of the shoe is top notch as well. It’s a solid performance shoe that is good for all conditions. The price tag is a bit high, but we still recommend the shoe.
