When you think of golf shoes, two-toned bowling shoes and mono-toned dress shoes come to mind. For a long time this sport of previously esteemed gentlemen had some rather strict dress codes, eagerly enforced by country clubs dead set on upholding the exclusivity of the sport. But with the rapid rise of golf’s popularity, so too did the image of the average player. These days greater emphasis is being put on comfort, and country clubs reluctantly loosened dress codes.
Golf fashion has come a long way since the first rounds at St. Andrews, yet it seems the golf shoe market has remained largely unchanged with apparel companies offering only slight variations on the classic (and boring) golf shoe look. However, this is all about to change.
This year Nike is hitting the ball among the pigeons by introducing the Nike Dunk NG, the most radical show to hit the golfing world in a long time. Based on the classic Nike Dunk Low basketball kicks, the Dunk NG simply adds gold spikes to the bottom of the outsole and brings some much-needed street style to the fairways and greens of the world.
The Nike Dunk NG will be available in nine classic colour-ways (5 men’s/4 ladies’).
