Nike unveils special edition Masters shoes

Nike Masters Shoes

You can expect to see Nike’s roster of athletes donning some very special shoes next week at Augusta.

‘The Snake Pack’ as Nike is calling it, consists of six unique pairs of shoes that have a distinctive green snake pattern and will be worn by the likes of Rory McIlroy, Tony Finau and Jason Day.

As a nod to the iconic Amen Corner and the Masters logo, the limited edition shoes also feature a pair of praying hands in yellow and red.

The six models that will be available to purchase from the nike.com on the Monday of Masters week are the Nike Roshe G Tour, Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour, Nike React Vapor 2, Nike Air Max 1 G, Nike Tour Premiere and Jordan XI.

"It is often said that this tournament doesn't begin until the back nine on Sunday, and the Snake Pack is designed to flip the narrative of athletes being 'snake-bit' down the stretch. Instead, Nike is giving its athletes the confidence to grab the snake by the head and take the tournament into their own hands," Nike explained in its press release.
