Nike FREE-Inspired TW 13 Shoes

Nike Golf Claims Another Redefinition of Golf Shoes…

Nike free golf shoes

“Free” but not free

Please excuse the slight cynicism below… in fact the reason I chose to  show these shoes is becasue I liked the image here on the left. Makes a refreshing change…

Nike’s new golf shoes (in “relentless pursuit of innovation continues to deliver”) leads them to say that the technology makes golfers better and that “Proof positive” is the new Nike TW ‘13, inspired by Nike FREE technology. Tiger Woods debuted the prototype golf shoes on Tour last summer and the Nike shoes were available available from June 2012.

The idea is that you get the same performance (fit & feel) as running shoes.  That suggestion started the collaboration between Toger Woods, Nike Golf’s footwear  team and Nike’s “Innovation Kitchen”, led by Tobie Hatfield.  The result is what Nike call an iconic shoe with their “natural motion” engineered outsole, inspired by Buy Levitra Nike FREE technology from their running shoes.

Tiger says “Now my feet are stronger and I feel more athletic…These shoes provide freedom of movement and allow me to release more power through my swing.”

How many golf shoe spikes?

What I noticed immediately is the number of spikes – 6 in fact. In a sort of parallel run of pairs which isn’t what you normally see on the bottom of a golf shoe.

Nike Free-Inspired TW'13 beautyAll the other usual claims (unprecedented strength-to-weight ratio/one-to-one fitted support/Flywire-infused nylon straps/extend 360° from the footbed to the lacing system/adaptive fit/golfers stability etc etc) are made by the Nike press release about these golf shoes – plus “multidirectional stretch synthetic”.  Any one have experience of them?

Now the last bit… and although free comes into the name they certainly aren’t!  MSRP:  $220    MAP/Street:  $180. Available in white as shown or black – which just look like old trainers to me…
