Nike MotionFit Golf Glove

In recent years, the golf footwear industry has been transformed by motion-inspired shoes that work with the body to boost comfort and performance. Nike Golf’s latest golf glove, the Dri-Fit Tech, has the potential to do the same thing to the golf glove industry.

The Dri-Fit Tech is different from Nike golf gloves in the past because of a patent-pending silicone section that covers certain areas on the back of the hand and knuckles. That silicone is laid over Nike’s Dri-Fit material in a pattern that was inspired by the way the tendons are structured in the hand, providing better support and range of motion according to Marci DuChene, product line manager for bags, gloves and women’s footwear for Nike Golf.

“This is a new zone for us,” DuChene said. “When you put this glove on, you look at it initially and think it looks funny. But when you swing, you don’t feel it at all.”

The glove also features a low profile velcro pull tab that keeps the back of the glove slim, yet still allows for easy off and on. It’s made of premium Cabretta leather and is available in stores now for a street price of $24.99.

For traditionalists, Nike is releasing its Tour Classic (pictured below), which is similar to previous Cabretta leather-constructed Nike Golf gloves. It will be available Dec. 1 and carry a street price of $18.99.
