Thanks for posting the pics.  As for these shoes, can't say they are my style.  They just don't look like a quality made shoe.  I can't see them lasting more than 1 season.

I walk and was looking forward to seeing these, but they look like something a 65+ guy would wear with some spikes put in them.. Not a great job by Nike, and like I said, I had planned in buying some.

The bottom of the shoe looks like it's made of Legos.

I wonder if you can take the spikes out and have it as a running shoe. Looks comfortable to run in.

It amazes me how many people blame Nike for the design and look of these, when in reality they were designed by Tiger for what he likes and its obvious that comfort took priority over look.

There were some pics of a sales sample from the PGA Show in another thread. In my opinion, this shoe looks different than the one Tiger is wearing.

To the OP, I'm not saying your pics are fugazzi, they are the same exact shoes that were displayed in the back room at the PGA Show. I'm just saying that Tiger has Tinker one-offs and it's disappointing they felt the need to alter the production model.

Nevertheless, Tinker is the man. I hope he designs more golf shoes in the future.

I'm all for progression of style on the course, but something about those laces makes me think their more "NBA" than golf...
Also, I thought these were going to compete w/the Ecco streets, but these actually have soft spikes.
Nike can and probably will do better than this

Being that I walk the vast majority of my rounds and I prefer a more neutral golf shoe, I'm a big fan of these.  I've had a few pair of Nike Air Max golf shoes and they were great for walking.  Hell, I was known to wear New Balance tennis shoes to about half my golf practices in college, and these are a major upgrade over those.  I'll definitely be giving them a look when they come out.

Also, I wonder how much of an effect, if any, knowing these were made for Tiger and he wears them has on the public's opinion.  I'd be willing to guess a little bit.

Thanks for sharing, looks like they will be pretty comfortable, although I'm still skeptical of stability. The Frees in general are great though. I recently bought a pair of Free Run+ and Winter TR2 and they are some of the best athletic shoes I've gotten in a while. And this is after wearing Adidas for years and are my first Nikes since the original Huarache and various Air Jordans, when they were not considered retro. :)

What size are they, and have you tried them on yet? If they are 13, i'll buy them off ya.

As for these being different then the ones Tiger is wearing, they look about the same, but he has a modified heal in his to support his Achilles more.

I really liked the original prototypes however must agree the finished product leaves a lot to be desired. Im sure they are quite comfy just can't get over the nerd factor going on here, I think the Ecco Bioms look far better...BB

If they are as comfortable as regular Nike free's and come in other colors than all white i will probably get a pair to try out.  Until then FJ Icons for me!

Call me disappointed. I've been waiting to see the retail version of these all winter. I haven't but a new pair of shoes because I've been waiting for these. I have a pair of Nike Free and they're super comfortable. Keeping my fingers crossed they'll come in all black.

WOW, they're ugly with almost no technology/design going on other than the sole.  PASS.

ACTUALLY- compared to early photos of Tiger's shoes- those look FAKE.  Is the OP in China?
