It’s a well-known fact that basketball legend Michael Jordan has a massive passion for golf, with a host of friends in the professional game including Keegan Bradley and Luke Donald.
Bradley, winner of the 2011 US PGA Championship, has become a known wearer of Jordan golf shoes in recent months, but such shoes hadn’t been made available to the average amateur golfer. Until now that is.
Earlier this week, the star’s Jordan Brand unveiled its newest retail golf shoe in over a decade, with the Jordan Flight Runner Golf not short on flair and style.
"This is the same formula that helped us create some of the most iconic shoes" - Larry Miller
The limited edition shoe combines one of Jordan Brand’s premium training styles, the Jordan Flight Runner 2, with Nike Golf’s innovative Nike Free-inspired tooling.
“The Jordan Flight Runner Golf is the perfect combination of Jordan and Nike innovation coupled with Michael’s love for the game of golf,” said Larry Miller, president of Jordan Brand.
“This is the same formula that helped us create some of the most iconic shoes over the past 30 years and we are excited to bring Jordan Brand energy to the golf course.”
The Jordan Flight Runner Golf combines mesh and synthetic materials in the upper for lightweight support and breathability, while the shoe’s dynamic Nike Flywire provides the ultimate lockdown fit.
The midsole contains a forefoot moderation plate that stabilises the foot when twisting and the lightweight injected unit delivers maximised comfort on the course. The outsole’s TRI-LOK soft spikes and Free-inspired construction provide a flexible and supportive ride.
