Brooks Koepka has made the switch to Nike Golf (from Titleist) for 2016, and the Swoosh is rolling out a new shoe on the long-hitting Florida State product that is sure to turn some heads.
Kopeka, playing in the 2016 curtain-opener Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Hawaii, will be wearing the Nike Golf Flyknit Chukka golf shoes.
Flyknit is the name of Nike's latest upper, and it looks kind of like material found in its other apparel, namely pullover and sweatpants. Nike's Dynamic Flywire technology offers "suspension-bridge"-like support in key spots on the foot. The Phylon midsole has a Free-technology-inspired material that distribute the force on the foot at impact, reducing pressure on the foot.
The spikeless version of the shoe has Flex grooves and rubber traction pods for traction.
The Nike Golf Flyknit Chukka golf shoe will soon be available now for $190.
Rickie Fowler is sporting his own version of the high top golf shoe, doing so with a Puma specially built shoe using a TitanTour Ignite base.
