Nike unveils new golf shoe

Nike Golf has created the new Nike TW ‘13, inspired by Nike Free technology. Tiger Woods debuted the prototypes on the PGA Tour last summer. The shoes will be available to consumers Friday. The inspiration behind the Nike TW ‘13 footwear began with Woods, who wanted a performance fit and feel that his Nike Free shoes when he runs and trains. The shoe’s feature the natural motion engineered outsole that 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. This 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. To ensure that the TW ’13 upper moves in concert with the Dynamic Fit system, designers implemented a multidirectional stretch synthetic available in white or black with red accents. The shoe has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $220 and estimated street price of $180. Visit nikegolf.com.
