In commemoration of the season's final major, TaylorMade-adidas golf last month released a special edition of its Samba golf shoe inspired by the PGA Championship.
It's the fourth shoe in a line released by the company starting in March, all inspired by the colors of the major championships. The PGA Championship shoe sports a white background with light blue and orange trim, harkening to the oceanside environment on which Kiawah Island's Ocean Course lies.
The Samba golf shoe was introduced last year, a throwback to the famous soccer shoe first released in 1950 to help footballers play on hard surfaces. Coincidentally, the company made 1,950 pairs of each of the four shoes, individually numbering them for the collector.
The shoes wear like the classic Samba shoe so many of my generation remember wearing, either because they were cool or they played soccer. They have six spikes on the sole and an upper eerily akin to the original soccer shoe, including the three-stripe design and suede toe guard.
Depending on the retailer, prices range for the shoe from $99-129.
