In the world of golf, the color black belongs to Gary Player, known appropriately as “The Black Knight.” But there’s another golfer who’s had success donning all-black: Jimmy Walker, who won the 2016 PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club wearing a monochromatic, black outfit from hat to shoes.

To commemorate Walker’s victory, FootJoy released 2,106 pairs of “Jimmy Walker Black HyperFlex II” golf shoes that are selling for $159.99.

“Jimmy Walker is a tremendous ambassador for the FootJoy brand,” says
Keith Duffy, Senior Product Manager, Footwear. “We wanted to help him
celebrate his huge Major win last year with a very limited run of 2,106
pair of Hyperflex II Blacked-Out shoes. What better way to complete his
preferred head-to-toe all-black look?”

Like the standard HyperFlex II golf shoes, the all-black Jimmy Walkers have “FlexGrid 3.0″ technology, which means they’re made with BioMorph material and athletic mesh for a soft feel and waterproofing. They also have Fine-Tuned Foam for cushioning and stability, “Laser Plus Fit” so the shoes have a rounded toe and a narrow heel, and “Extreme N.E.O. (Next Evolutionary Outsole) Traction” in the sole, equipped with Tornado Cleats by Softspikes.

“I really like the athletic styling, comfort and support I get in
my HF2’s” said Jimmy Walker. “I liked the black-and-white version, but I
just had to have the blacked out ones made up to test out — and they came
out awesome.”

The Jimmy Walker HyperFlex II shoes are currently available on FootJoy.com and at select retailers globally.

    • That’s why he wears all black, so people won’t mistake him for Kevin Chappel, Sean O’Hair, Adam Hadwin, Grayson Murray, Cody Gribble, Brendan Steel, or Huson Swafford
