Modern Lunar Control 4?

So I have 2 pairs of Lunar Control 4s that I absolutely love. The pair in my profile pic is going on 4 years old (my niece custom painted them) and they still feel fantastic. The reason I love them so much is because of the TPU heel and the stability of the shoe. The easiest way for me to describe it is it’s like having a car with sports suspension with very little roll. I have lots of leg movement in my swing and it seems like most shoes now have very soft bottoms and heels. The LC4 are extremely stable and the most comfortable shoe I’ve worn. I also have a very old set of Foot Joy Sports (probably 10 years old) that also have that plastic in the base of the heel.

A few weeks ago I was in the PGA Superstore and tried on a bunch of shoes and they are felt like I was swaying in a “Camry”. Just wondering if there are any shoes that have that similar sturdy heal contruction like the LC4? Just picked up a pair of Nike React Vapor 2 and they aren’t bad but still too much movement.

    have you tried the tour-x? it doesn't have an outer plastic heel cup, but you can definitely feel your heel lock in, its super stable and really well cushioned for being a 'stability' style shoe.

    The react vapor 2 is potentially the closest I’ve felt. The traction/cleat pattern offers the closest feel.

    Yeah, I played 9 holes with the Vapor 2s yesterday and they were pretty good. Definitely really comfortable and pretty stable. Not sure if they have the longevity of the LC4s but still a good shoe.

    No I didn't but they look really close to the FJ Sports I still have which was the first pair with that stability heel. Will definitely take a look at these! Thank you!

    I loved my LC 4's, too. Lightweight and comfortable, but with great grip and lateral stability. I had three pairs. I was very disappointed when Nike dropped the line.

    I've moved on to the React Vapor 2's. They have a heel counter, like the LC 4's, and are lightweight, comfortable, and stable. I think the heel is a little higher on them than on the LC 4's, though. I liked height of the LC 4's better.

    Tried the ZITs, but they had horrible grip and lateral stability for me. Super comfortable, though.

    I'm going to get a pair of the Roshe Tours on eBay. They have the same Lunarlon cushioning as the LC 4's. I tried the regulars on in the store last year, but they were too narrow. Going to try and get a pair in Wide. I see quite a few of Nike's PGA pros wearing them when more expensive options are available to them. Figured I'd give them a try.
