Nike has revealed details of its newest golf shoe that is said to give improved traction without sacrificing any comfort - the Nike Flyknit Elite.

Based on the concept the golf swing is built from the ground up, the Nike Flyknit Elite design can improve power, accuracy and consistency in your swing according to its designers.

How does the Nike Flyknit Elite do that? Through an innovative traction system called Articulated Integrated Traction.

Developed via a combination of research and athlete testing, Nike Golf’s vice president of footwear Gentry Humphrey says it works to ‘decouple the medial heel and lateral forefoot area to help propel the athlete through the swing.’

He added: “When our team of designers started creating what would become Articulated Integrated Traction we factored in foot performance through every aspect of the swing.

“We also considered the various surfaces and angles a golfer has to play through each and every round and worked hard to create traction that performs in every condition.”

The articulated channels also aid balance throughout the swing, while keeping you lower to the ground.

Other features include a full-length Lunarlon midsole for cushioning, which has been paired with a lightweight, breathable Flyknit upper.

Dynamic Flywire keeps the midfoot locked down during the swing and the higher collar conforms to your foot to prevent grass and other debris from entering the shoe.
