What we say:

 

The latest addition to the Lunar Control series, the Nike Lunar Control Vapor doesn't disappoint. Granted, we still prefer the Lunar Control 4, but the Vapor isn't too far behind. We love the breathability/waterproof combo, which is difficult to find. This factor alone makes it a great year-round shoe. The innovative traction provides plenty of grip, and perhaps most importantly, it's very comfortable. If you're willing to dish out a chunk of change, you could do worse than considering the Lunar Control Vapor, which we recommend for intermediate to advanced golfers.
