Here you'll find all the latest, juiciest news and gossip...all that relates to golf shoes, that is.
The Most Expensive Golf Shoes?
Ok, so it's slightly weird that nobody really knows about these shoes, yet they're perhaps the most expensive out there. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the ParWest Augusta golf shoe. The prices vary greatly, but if you're looking to spin heads in the clubhouse, we recommend the crocodile leather ones. At a mere $3200, this shoe can be yours. Each pair of shoes is custom built, so they're bound to be comfy.
Nike Green Grass golf shoe
It's no joke. What you're looking at here is a Nike golf shoe with fake grass for it's upper. The design is based on the classic Air Max 1, but has been tweaked a bit. It looks like there are more traditional colors in this same model, but we're way more excited about the "Green Grass" edition.
Rory McIlroy's Hollywood Kicks
A few weeks ago, Rory teed up the Genesis Open in LA. We all know Rory is from Holywood, Northern Ireland, and we also know that Hollywood is in LA. Nike and Rory decided to commemorate this with a special edition of his new signature shoe, the Air Zoom Victory. It has Hollywood's famed palm trees on the upper, with "Holly" and "Wood" on the soles.
Rory McIlroy's Golden Shoes
Rory's been in the golf shoe news quite a bit lately, seemingly teeing it up in every tournament with new custom shoes. For the Players Championship this week, he's chosen a golden version of his Nike Air Zoom Victory. We can't wait to see what's coming next!
TRUE linkswear MS Knit
Huge kudos to TRUE linkswear for this awesome idea. They've taken their TRUE Knit golf shoe, and created the MS Knit, which gives $30 per pair to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. We've always liked the TRUE brand, but this generous gesture has elevated them to new heights! You can purchase these shes on the TRUE website for $129.
This new company "Golfkicks" has come up with quite the innovative idea. It allows you to basically change any of your shoes to golf shoes. You buy the kit, which involves screwing spikes into the outsole of your shoe of choice, and you're ready to golf! Keep in mind this is a very new thing, and we haven't really heard any feedback. For starters, we're very interested to see how durable the spikes are and whether or not they actually stay in place. Time will tell!
Jordan XI Master's Edition Golf Shoe
It's almost Master's time again, and Nike has gone a done something cool. Again. This time with their Jordan XI golf shoe. They've customized it for The Master's, with every part of the shoe telling some sort of story from Augusta. The green collar of the shoe looks like snake skin, which warns of how the final stretch of Augusta can bite. These shoes will be available to the public on April 12.
Do Pros Use Metal Spikes?
Yes, some do. But not many. It's estimated that roughly 20% of Tour players use metal spikes, including..., you guessed it! Tiger Woods. Pros who still use metal spikes claim they add that extra grip that soft spikes cannot. Whether this claim is true or just a mental thing is up for debate. Soft spike technology has come so far that we believe they are actually better, mainly because they grip pretty much the same as spikes, yet are more comfortable. Most courses don't allow metal spikes, but just in case you wanted to copy Tiger, he uses Champ Stinger spikes.
Adidas TOUR360 XT Parley
To raise awareness for the importance of recycling and limiting the use of plastics, Adidas has come out with a limited version of the TOUR360 XT. Its uppers are partly made of upcycled plastic waste from coastal area. They timed this to go hand in hand witht he US Open at Pebble Beach. It will become available June 10.
Gary Woodland's Patriotic Shoes!
Gary Woodland sported some pretty sweet star-spangled golf shoes at the US Open, which he won by the way. They are a version of the PUMA PWRADAPT Leather golf shoes. As with most PUMA golf shoes, they are awesome in every regard. The normal version are going for $200, while a limited release of only 13 pairs personally signed by Gary Woodland are going for $1000. However, before you gasp, all the proceeds are going to the Folds of Honor Foundation, which assists disabled service men and women's families
Steph Curry Under Armour Golf Shoes?
Yes, you read correctly. Although Steph Curry is famous for his skills on the basketball court, he also holds his own on the golf course. So much so that he and Under Armour have teamed up to launch his own golf line, dubbed "Range Unlimited". Included in this line is an awesome looking spikeless golf shoe called the "Curry 6 SL". We know nothing about the specifics of the shoe, but it looks pretty awesome. It will cost $160 and will be available to purchase later this fall.
FootJoy Pro/SL British Open Edition
One of the most highly anticipated majors is finally upon us! This year it's at beautiful Portrush in Northern Ireland, and to commemorate this, FootJoy has come out with a special limited edition model of the Pro/SL. It features mini Claret Jugs along the stripe of the upper, which look pretty awesome.
Justin Thomas's New Custom FootJoys
Justin Thomas's FootJoy ICON Blacks are going to look a bit different this coming week at the FedEx St. Jude Invitational. They have been custom designed by Bailey Jessop, a 14 year old cancer survivor. The golf shoes include pictures of Bailey's favorite things, including fish.
PUMA IGNITE NXT Big Logo
PUMA is always at the forefront when it comes to fashion, so it comes as no surprise that they have a new "fashion" campaign, called "Big Logo". It features shirts, shorts, hoodies and of course, shoes. "Big Logo" refers to the 90s PUMA fashion, when big logos were priminent. The IGNITE NXT Big Logo looks pretty much exactly the same as the original IGNITE NXT on the upper, with a big logo "PUMA" on the outsole instead of the normal small logo.
Air Jordan XI Low Golf Shoe
One of our favorite times of the year is upon us again; the release of a new Jordan golf shoe! This time it's the Air Jordan XI Low Golf. Do we even need to say how awesome it looks?? If the answer is "yes", then we'll say it again...it looks awesome!! We don't know an technical specifics, but we're sure it will be up to par. The price hasn't been released either, but it will probably be around $200. You don't have to wait long, as they will be available for purchase starting August 8th.
Brooks Koepka and Bo Jackson's Custom Nike Golf Shoes
Brooks Koepka and Bo Jackson recently played together at the BMW Championship Pro-am, and were rocking some pretty sweet custom kicks. Bo had "Bo Knows" on his, while Brooks had "Brooks Knows" on his Nike Tour Premieres.
Brooks Koepka's Off-White x Nike Air Max 90s
Brooks Koepka has been making a lot of headlines lately. Perhaps it's because he's the best player in the world. And he just posed nude for ESPN. All this aside, you may have noticed that his golf shoes have been attracting quite a bit of attention. Not only did he sport the new and not-yet-released Off-White x Nike Air Max 90s at the Tour Championship, but he went ahead and left the tag on as well. For most mere mortals, this would seem a bit distracting. But not for Brooks.
C.T. Pan's Custom Nikes
C.T. Pan got his maiden PGA Tour victory at the RBC Heritage last April. Along with earning tons of money for his win, C.T. is also getting a litle perk from his sponsor, Nike. He's been given a custom pair of Nike Air Force 1 golf shoes, dubbed "first win edition". They feature a bunch of stats from his win scribbled across the shoes in black against a silver backdrop.
Justin Thomas's "Bahamas Strong" Golf Shoes
The Bahamas is a place close to Justin Thomas's heart, with a house and friends there he considers it his second home. As a way of supporting the peole after the devastating hurricane, he's wearing a custom pair of FootJoy ICONs, dubbed "Bahamas Strong". These words wrap around the back of the shoe in white lettering contrasted by a light blue background. He'll wear these cool kicks for the next few weeks, and is also donating $1000 for every birdie he makes for the rest of the year.
