FIVE NEW SHOES YOU NEED
Five of Nike Golf's most-popular shoe silhouettes have been reimagined for the second major of the year at Bethpage this week. Each shoe will still maintain all of their key design features along with a distinct safari-inspired print detailing.
Maple Leaf - a nod to Bethpage being a public course and part of a New York State Park.
Concrete - Although not in the concrete jungle of Manhattan, Bethpage is still in New York state in Long Island and Nike's designers wanted to pay homage to the city hence the concrete grey colour scheme.
Traffic Cone/Red pop-detailing - Bethpage Black has a sign on the first tee warning how difficult the course is and this is a metaphor to the warning.
Take a look at the shoes below and make sure you set your alarm for Thursday as limited quantities are available.
AIR ZOOM VICTORY TOUR
Rory McIlroy's go-to shoe with integrated hybrid traction outsole and lightweight construction for improved ground-feel. The zoom air unit provides responsive cushioning for ultimate wearing comfort. Red chrome outsole and swoosh finish this design with a maple leaf featured on the back.
AIR MAX 1 G
TRENDYGOLF firm favourite which will almost certainly be worn by Jason Day and Tony Finau on the famous fairways of Bethpage Black. The Air Max 1 G from Nike's Safari Bred pack features a distinct red air pocket and a maple leaf on the back along with all the design features that we've come to know and love. The traction outsole is clear with red detailing underneath.
ROSHE G TOUR
The only shoe in the Safari Bred pack with a full safari print upper. Likely to be worn by Tommy Fleetwood at Bethpage, these Roshe G Tour's feature a red chrome swoosh on the side and red chrome outsole.
Preferred by defending champion Brooks Koepka, we're super excited to see the latest version of the Tour Premiere. The safari print detail is featured across the mid section of the foot. The standout red Chrome outsole features the seven tour golf spikes as with the original version which offers great ground feel and traction.
REACT VAPOR II
Footwear choice of Patrick Reed and one of the more understated shoes in this capsule collection from Nike. The shoe features safari detailing is on the side panels with a red chrome outsole. The react technology helps to bring plush responsiveness to the course to keep your feet comfortable so you can perform at your best.
