One of the most talked about golf shoes is now finally available, the Nike TW '13.
Tiger Woods started the marketplace buzz when he debuted the prototypes on the PGA Tour last summer. The inspiration came from Woods, who asked for a shoe that gave him the performance fit and feel of his Nike FREE footwear which he wears for running and training. That ignited a collaboration between Woods, Nike Golf's footwear creation team and Nike's Innovation Kitchen, led by Tobie Hatfield.
The result is an iconic shoe with Nike's natural motion engineered outsole, inspired by Nike FREE technology, which is designed to mimic and conform to the natural motion of the foot, coupled with the protection and traction of a lightweight performance golf shoe. The innovative outsole allows the athlete to keep contact with the ground longer, better harnessing the energy of the foot to the shoe and, therefore, the shoe to the ground.
The Nike TW '13 also features the new Nike Dynamic Fit support system. Targeted support delivers unprecedented strength-to-weight ratio and one-to-one fitted support. Flywire-infused nylon straps extend 360-degrees from the footbed to the lacing system, securing the foot for an adaptive fit that provides golfers stability with mobility.
To ensure that the TW '13 upper moves in concert with the Dynamic Fit system, designers turned to Nike's Innovation Kitchen to source the multidirectional stretch synthetic available in Tiger's signature colors of White or Black with Red accents.
The TW '13 is available at a suggested retail price of CDN $199.
