This is exactly what we love about Nike - their constant drive to break boundaries and innovate. We have always loved the Free technology and it looks like it will soon also make its way properly into the golf collection. Together with Tiger Woods Nike has worked on a prototype golf shoe, incorporating the sole technology.
"The majority of the upper consists of a polyurethane coated stretch fabric, also seen within the construction of NIKE Basketball’s Hyperfuse 2011. Part of the heel is created from recycled NIKE Air Max units melted into thread and then woven together to create a strong, breathable textile material. The FREE-inspired outsole is directly taken from NIKE Sportswear’s Special Field Boot designed for first-responders.
This model also has a half heel counter in both shoes to give more stability on the lateral side, particularly in follow through. The shoe also incorporates NIKE Flywire (first introduced in Beijing in 2008) attached to each lace loop, which when pulled tight envelope the foot for maximum comfort and stability."
The all black colorway came out beautiful. Take a further look after the jump, including the white colorway of the sneaker.
