Bubba Watson never had a doubt in his mind that he was going to represent Team U.S.A. in the 60-man Olympic golf tournament in Rio de Janeiro in August. He's excited about the opportunity to medal and spread the game to parts and people of the world that otherwise wouldn't pay attention to it.
While in Brazil, Watson will wear the Team U.S.A. golf uniform that was crafted by adidas Golf. However, that kit doesn't come with a prescribed pair of shoes. So, Watson teamed with the folks at G/Fore Golf to put an American flag spin on the high tops he wore at the U.S. Open.

The G/Fore Crusader is a high top the company released earlier in the year that looks like a throwback to some old high-tops from the late 1990s or early 2000s, with a perforated upper and multi-color design. It's a throwback to the Nike Air Force 1-style shoes. The shoe features upscale leather in a hybrid-style shoe.
In this special edition, the shoes have red and white colorways, with a blue colorway with American stars on it. It's pretty splendid.
