Nike Tiger Woods 2015 Golf Shoe
In 2015 Nike and Tiger Woods collaborated to make the Tiger Woods 2015 Golf Shoe. They were somewhat revolutionary at the time. Tiger Woods was recovering from back surgery and wanted a super comfortable and lightweight golf shoe. Being the brilliant man that he is, he thought the best golf shoe would mirror the comfort of his running shoes. The Nike Tiger Woods 2015 Golf Shoe was a game changer, but has since fallen behind the competition a bit. While they were some of the best golf shoes on the market, they no longer compete with FootJoy, Skechers, and Puma’s latest line of products.
That being said, these golf shoes are fairly affordable these days and are great for those that love the design and Tiger Woods.
Lightweight and Flexible
The Tiger Woods 2015 Golf Shoe is made with a Flyweave upper that makes the shoe extremely lightweight. In fact, this technology makes the Tiger Woods 2015 Golf Shoe 10% lighter than its predecessor, the TW’14. The golf shoe also features Dynamic Flywire System that makes the golf shoe really stable. When swinging at 115 mph (like Tiger used to) you’re going to want a stable shoe. The lightweight nature of these golf shoes prevent them from weighing you down during a round and make them easy to put on. In addition to the weight and stability of the golf shoe, they are also super flexible. This is due to the Free-inspired outsole of the golf shoe. If you’re someone who has feet that are unconventionally shaped, these may be the best golf shoes for you.
Contrary to popular belief, the lightweight and flexible nature of the Tiger Woods 2015 Golf Shoe does not compromise its comfort. Tiger designed these shoes a little later in his career and wanted to really focus on comfort, flexibility and lightweight design. Because of this focus, these golf shoes kind of have it all. While the Tiger Woods 2015 Golf Shoes aren’t the most comfortable golf shoes produced, they certainly hold their own. However, if comfort is your main concern (as opposed to style and weight) consider the Skechers Go Golf Pro 2s.
Cleats and Grip
When creating the Tiger Woods 2015 Golf Shoe Tiger also wanted to focus on the grip of the golf shoe. It’s designed with grip in places that golf shoe makers still ignore. Specifically, Tiger added special grip to the toe and the heel of the shoe to prevent slipping on your backswing and follow through. While these golf shoes won’t increase your swing speed (no shoe will), they’ll definitely help you plant solidly into the ground to push up against gravity and maximize your power.
Are these the best golf shoes for you?
The Tiger Woods 2015 Golf Shoe changed the golf shoe forever. It inspired virtually all manufacturers to make a running-shoe type golf shoe. These golf shoes are flexible, stable, lightweight, full of grip, and fairly stylish. If you are looking for a new pair of golf shoes, the Nike Tiger Woods 2015 Golf Shoe should definitely be on your radar. These are the best golf shoes available for golfers looking for lightweight and flexible shoes.
