28 Mar New to the market – Woods inspires Nike footwear
Nike Golf has created the Nike Free Inspired TW ‘13 Limited Edition footwear in time for the Masters. The shoe has a suggested retail price of $179.99. It is crafted of waterproof multi-stretch synthetic leather in white and has a Nike Free Inspired outsole popped in green, a touch of yellow on the top eye-stay and a hint of red in the TW logo on the tongue. The Nike Free Inspired TW ’13 has been available all year but the new color scheme will be released Thursday.
Nike says the inspiration behind the footwear began with Tiger Woods himself. He asked for a shoe that gave him the same performance fit and feel as his Nike Free shoes when he runs and trains. That question ignited collaboration between Woods, Nike Golf’s footwear creation team and Nike’s Innovation Kitchen, led by Tobie Hatfield.
The outsole 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 delivers flexibility that allows the athlete to keep contact with the ground longer. The shoe also features the Nike Dynamic Fit support system. Targeted support delivers 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. Limited quantities are available in retailers across the country as well as through www.nike.com.
