I pretty much hate all things Tiger Woods, but his new golf shoes are the hotness.
The majority of the upper consists of a polyurethane coated stretch fabric, also seen within the construction of NIKE Basketball’s Hyperfuse 2011. Part of the heel is created from recycled NIKE Air Max units melted into thread and then woven together to create a strong, breathable textile material. The FREE-inspired outsole is directly taken from NIKE Sportswear’s Special Field Boot designed for first-responders.
This model also has a half heel counter in both shoes to give more stability on the lateral side, particularly in follow through. The shoe also incorporates NIKE Flywire (first introduced in Beijing in 2008) attached to each lace loop, which when pulled tight envelope the foot for maximum comfort and stability.
The color scheme on these things are amazing. Just looking at them makes me think I can take 10 strokes off my game. Someone please send me a pair.
You can check out Tiger wearing these new kicks all weekend at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.
