Which Air Jordan model should Nike release as a golf shoe next?

Published

on

According to GolfMagic, Nike’s Air Jordan III golf shoe took off from the foul line and soared right out of stock.

Per the site: “Nike launched this new model back in February… but you’ll do very well to get your hands on either them right now as they have sold out on Nike’s website. However, a Nike spokesperson has since commented saying “more is on the way.”

Grammar aside, this is interesting.

Now, it wasn’t long ago that all golf shoes looked like this.

And with all due respect to the Etonic Dri-Lite of yore, and giving wide berth to the traditionalists in the golf footwear space, the transition to sneaker-style golf shoes is cool, isn’t it? I mean, even if you’re monumentally swagger impaired like myself and could never pull the “Js on the fairways” look off, it’s intriguing, no?

With that in mind, and recognizing the demand for the 3s, I thought it’d be interesting to consider what the next Jordan golf shoe ought to be.

Here are my finalists for the next wide release (yes, I know Nike made Ray Allen custom 11s and MJ has had a few customs). Many of these are new colorways of classic (OG) models. I’ve tried for a range of styles and picks from across the Jordan timeline. Images via the excellent catalogue on the Jordan website.

Air Jordan XXXII

Air Jordan VI

Air Jordan VIII

Air Jordan II (low)

Air Jordan XXX

    The next shoe should be the Colin Kaepernick model, a shoe in which you can only tie the laces when you’ve bent down on one knee. All my Nike stuff’s been chucked into the “poor box.” Gonna be some well-dressed homeless out there!

    Who gives a f**k about MJ shoes? Go work on your game. Or better yet, teach a kid how to play.

    Doesn’t matter what Nike does now – I have thrown all my Nike items away. If they support and anti-American like Colin Kaepernick. As a veteran I am offended by his stance against the troops and good Americans everywhere. If you can’t stand for the Flag then you are against this country’s fighting servicemen.

      This may be shocking to all of you 12 cappers commenting about getting rid of your Nike gear, but Nike considered your response and realized that 30-50 year old white males currently make up very little of their sales numbers and won’t impact their sales in any meaningful way, but connecting with minority groups in america who actually care about social issues will improve their brand. So, thrash and squeal all you want. They don’t care about you and they haven’t in a long time.

    I hope all the boycotting of Nike carries over to Hurley and Converse as well, both owned by Nike. It would seem to coincidental if it was just Nike and Jordan Brand that made you all upset. Seems like that is the exact issue at the root of CK’s protesting.

    I threw away all my Nike stuff that was made by extorted child labor laws in a foreign country I don’t know anything about but only because Nike represents an athlete domestically that forced me to considered issues that I don’t know anything about.

      I wear Nike everything more now than ever before, but not a fan of Air Jordan’s in golf.
      MJ wasn’t a pro golfer so stick with BB and let Tiger, Rory and others design Nike golf shoes.

      Regarding the social message Nike represents, either you’re blind, stupid or just ignorant if you can’t see that Police are murdering black males getting away with murder. Shoot first ask questions second. Fact some can’t see that is called privilege. Very convenient you don’t have to worry about it right now. But your time is coming pal. America is going to change because statistically you’re out numbered. Why do you think they are trying to suppress the minority vote via Voter ID. Stupid fools…it’s just a matter of time when those in power no longer look like you and when they start shooting and killing folks that do look like you maybe then you might understand why CK is taking a knee.

        As a police – if we ask 1st shoot 2nd we are dead and leaving our families and friends behind.
        Do I agree with the shootings? No!
        But if Im in the same situation Im doing the same damn thing! I have a job, to Protect and Serve! And if Im not here I cant do either one!
        The thing people cant understand is we vow to protect all colors at all times!
        So its pretty simple- we say hands up its hands up the 1st time, Not the 2nd, 3rd or 4th.
        Anyways Id like the Jordan 11’s or in this pic the Jordan 2 low

        I’ll wear my nike stuff till they wear out (not burning anything). But I won’t buy more. Wow, you’re REALLY angry! Are you that angry about black males killing each other at record rate? Sad that this page becomes social commentary.

        Hey, my time is ‘coming’? WTF is that, some kind of warning? (I’m shaking in my boots! LOL).
        Just make sure you’re better armed than me sport, or your time will come.

    When Nike promoted Kaepernick in their lastest ad campaign they probably figured they would piss off a certain percentage of potential consumers. Consider me among many others that won’t spend a dime on anything they make.

    I’s, XI’s, IV’s, X’s – all in a low version and not necessarily in that order either. the 1’s in a high were too bulky imo.

    At no point in your rambling, incoherent response, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought on which Jordan should be released next. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    The answer is 11s, then 4s or 5s. You’ve picked quite possibly the worst Jordans to make into golf shoes.

      Oct 22, 2018 at 10:24 am

      Well said. But instead of 5s, I would go with 6 lows.

    Check your Jordan Retro Numbers.. the third picture is Retro 8’s not 7’s. Also, the last picture is not 6’s.

  25. Jordan

    Oct 18, 2018 at 1:03 pm

    I use my Kobe 11’s at the range. They’re great. Very stable.

    The answer is Jordan 32 low or Jordan 7 low.

  26. Tim

    Oct 18, 2018 at 12:19 pm

    The answer is 11 lows, anything else is incorrect.

Brooks Koepka expresses his frustration over J.B. Holmes’ slow play at The Open

Published

on

Brooks Koepka began 2019 by calling out golf’s authorities for their lack of action over the slow play issue surrounding the game, and on Sunday at the Open Championship, the 29-year-old appeared visibly agitated over the speed of playing partner J.B. Holmes.

The two men teed off at 1.37 PM local time in the final round, and from their opening tee shots of the day, which Holmes would take significantly longer to play than his compatriot, it appeared the two could be in for an uncomfortable day with each other.

For the most part during Sunday’s final round, on the course, Koepka was to keep whatever frustrations which were bubbling under the surface to himself.

However, coming off the 12th green, the four-time major champ was seen staring at a rules official while motioning to his imaginary wristwatch, and on another occasion, the American looked less than impressed as his playing partner went through his deliberate putting routine.

Following their round, the 29-year-old was quick to point out that Holmes is far from being the only slow player on Tour, but explained what his biggest gripe was with the Kentuckian on Sunday at Royal Portrush – his inability to prepare when it wasn’t his turn.

“There are a lot of slow guys out here, that’s not the first time I’ve done it, especially when you’ve got a walking official with you. I’m ready to go most of the time.

That’s what I don’t understand when it’s your turn to hit, your glove is not on, then you start thinking about it, that’s where the problem lies. It’s not that he takes that long. He doesn’t do anything until his turn. That’s the frustrating part. But he’s not the only one that does it out here.”

Holmes’ nightmare performance didn’t help his pace of play as he struggled mightily in the harsh conditions during Sunday’s final round. The 37-year-old shot an 87 – 16 over par to move from third place at the start of the day to fourth last on six over.

Koepka had some sympathy for Holmes’ struggles in the wind and rain in Northern Ireland, but despite this, the Florida native made it clear that he still found the pace at times too slow.

“He had a rough day, but JB is a slow player. We were on pace for 13 holes, but if I’m in the group we’re going to be on pace no matter what. But there were some times where I thought it was slow.”

Koepka’s final round of 74 secured a T4 finish for the four-time major champ to complete an exceptional year at the major tournaments which included a win at the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in May.
