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.

    • Eddie

      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.

The Premier Golf League: Everything you need to know about the proposed new world tour

Published

on

@geoffshac

The Premier Golf League has been a hot topic of discussion in the world of golf this year, and more information has emerged on the potential new world tour over the past few days.

With those recently released details from the minds behind the new concept and with plenty of reaction being given to the press from Tour players over the past week, here’s a breakdown of all the essential details of the Premier Golf League.

Who is behind the Premier Golf League?

CEO of the Premier Golf League is Andrew Gardiner—an attorney and London-based director at Barclays Capital. Together with Gardiner, Colin Neville, a partner at Raine Group—a New York-based sports, media and entertainment investment firm—is reported to have been highly influential in the PGL’s conception.

What is the concept of the Premier Golf League?

The new Premier Golf League would consist of an 18 event circuit featuring the top 48 players in the world who would be competing for a total prize purse of $240 million. 

The PGL would involve an eight-month season—including 10 U.S. events—which would be played over 54 holes. 

The remaining eight events would be split as follows: four in Asia, three in Europe, and one in Australia.

At each event, there would be a total prize purse of $10 million up for grabs, with the winner of each stroke play event taking home the $2 million winner’s share. The end of season champion would collect a bonus of $10 million.

Would the Premier Golf League consist solely of strokeplay events?

No. Co-existing alongside the individual strokeplay events would be a team event. The team event would consist of 12 four-man teams, with one player from each side being the team owner.

Each team would be competing for a total prize of $40 million with the winner’s share being $14 million.

What other details do we know?

  • Shotgun starts for the first two rounds with each captain deciding before each round which two player’s scores would count towards the team event.
  • No dress code outside of potential team uniforms.
  • A draft system.
  • A transfer window.
  • A relegation and promotion system as seen in soccer.
  • A playoff concept for the final event involving top seeds.
  • No course venues have thus far been discussed.

Could a player compete on the PGA Tour and the PGL?

No. Players would have to choose between one or the other.

Could players compete in the PGL and golf’s four major championships?

Yes. Separate bodies run the four majors and therefore players in the PGL could compete in golf’s four biggest events.

When could the PGL launch?

The PGL would likely kick off in 2022 or 2023.

What has the PGA Tour and European Tour said in regards to the proposed new World Tour?

PGA Tour chief Jay Monahan issued a memo to Tour players last month stating

“If the Team Golf Concept or another iteration of this structure becomes a reality in 2022 or at any time before or after, our members will have to decide whether they want to continue to be a member of the PGA Tour or play on a new series.”

European Tour chief, Keith Pelley, has not spoken publicly on the matter.

What have players said about the PGL?

Tiger Woods confirmed at a press conference at this month’s Genesis Invitational that he had been “personally approached” about his potential involvement in the world super-circuit and that he and his team are currently “looking into it.”

Earlier this year, The Scotsman reported that Phil Mickelson met and played with key PGL members during the Saudi International Pro-Am and told the media that he was “intrigued” by the idea.

“I haven’t had the chance to put it all together and think about what I want to say about it publicly, but I do think it was an informative day for me to have the chance to spend time with them.”

Last week, Justin Rose told the Daily Mail that “It’s (The PGL) increasingly becoming talked about in the locker room,” and that “there are a lot of incentives for the guys to be interested.”

Before the WGC-Mexico, Rory McIlroy dealt the PGL its most significant blow yet, when he told reporters that 

“The more I’ve thought about it, the more I don’t like it. For me, I’m out.”

The Ulsterman also added that he believes opinions in the locker room are currently split on the concept.

Following McIlroy’s comments, Bubba Watson also ruled out any potential involvement in the PGL telling Golf Channel last week 

“It doesn’t matter to me; I’m playing on the PGA Tour. Why go anywhere else, we have the best tour in the world?”

While Xander Schauffele looks to have also sided with the PGA Tour, telling the publication that

“Our commissioner set us straight, you have to pick which tour you want to play on and the benefits we have on the PGA Tour are pretty hard to beat. For me, how young I am and how early it is in my career all the history is made on the PGA Tour and that’s where I want to be.”
