Nike TW ’15 Golf Shoes

Published

on

Tiger’s newest golf shoes — Nike’s TW ’15 — made its debut via Tiger Woods’ Twitter account before a practice round at the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open. It’s woven with technology that makes it 10 percent lighter than its predecessor.

Woods and Tobie Hatfield, Nike’s Senior Director of Athlete Innovation, collaborated on the design, which has Nike’s new Flyweave technology to give it a flexible, stable and form-fitting upper.

[quote_center]“Nike keeps answering the bell every time I want to push the envelope,” Woods said. “The new Flyweave technology provides even more stability and support for my foot, and when you pair that with the Free-inspired outsole, I noticed I can push off the ground better and finish my swing with power.”[/quote_center]

Flyweave first debuted in a Nike basketball shoe in 2014 and uses a one-piece woven upper that has a greater strength-to-weight support for stability during the swing, while offering the lightweight flexibility golfers require.

As with previous TW shoe generations, the TW ’15 shoes use a Nike Free-inspired outsole.

The Nike Free-inspired outsole on the TW ’15 also sits 3 millimeters lower than the TW ’14, and Integrated Traction in the toe area offers more flexibility, allowing golfers to better harness power throughout the swing without suffering from traction issues.

“TIGER EPITOMIZES POWER,” SAID HATFIELD. “HIS POWER STARTS WITH NATURAL MOTION WHICH BEGINS WITH UNLEASHING THE FOOT FROM THE GROUND UP. FLYWEAVE GIVES YOU THAT FLEXIBILITY COUPLED WITH SUPPORT.”

Hatfield’s original sketch was influenced by Woods’ love of fishing and diving — with design elements inspired by Octopus beaks and shark scales.

Nike’s TW ’15 shoes will be available on Nike’s website Feb. 2 as part of a limited run. The shoe will hit stores on March 5 (preorder Feb. 12) for $250 (MSRP) in three color ways (University Red/Black), (Metallic Silver/Black) and (Black/White).

    I bet they feel and perform amaze, but hope there are some more traditional colorways, plus not too thrilled about the 1 less interchangeable cleat. Will be interested to see firsthand!

    Don’t love these. I have a pair of the white TW ’13s and they’re the best golf shoe i’ve ever owned (much better than the ’14s). If I can’t find another pair of them somewhere in my size, I’d go with the new Lunar Control 3’s before the TW ’15s.

      best golf shoe is Adidas 360 Tour – most stability then ever.

      As an owner of the TW ’13s and 14s, which I agree were the best shoes made to the date, I am very excited for these. I’m gonna have to compare them with the Adidas Energy Boost, though, as I am on my second pair of the running shoes. Believe me, you’ve got to try the boost. It’s the most revolutionary foam in a shoe ever in my opinion. It makes every other shoe feel like walking in chunks of hard plastic. They just feel so different.

    ok, maybe sharks have scales—but that still doesn’t mean they can play golf.

    Octopus beaks and shark scales?

    1. Sharks don’t have scales
    2. Sharks don’t have scales
    3. Why would an octopus’ beak have anything to do with a good golf shoe?
    4. Lion feathers.

    I’ve been a strong supporter of Nike sneakers / shoes (golf / tennis / basketball / cross-trainers) for over 25 years. In my opinion, there have only been two sneakers / shoes that were not better (or arguable worse) than a prior year’s product. . . The ’01 / ’02 Nike Zoom Tennis sneaker (the most uncomfortable competition tennis sneaker I’ve ever worn) and the TW ’14 (absolutely crippling over an 18-hole round – walking). The Lunar Controls have been great, the prior iterations of TW’s golf shoe (pre-free motion design) are great, even the 04′ nike shox golf sneaker were super comfortable. . . The newer TW’s, not so much. Just my opinion, I’m sure others differ.

    Except Tiger’s pair will be using steel spikes.

    This won’t be for everyone (obviously from the price point), but I like how Nike is getting their golf shoe collection in line with their other lines of sneakers (Jordan, etc) with the limited releases – makes perfect sense. I have a pair of the mesh version of the TW 14’s that I got through Nike ID, and I’ll probably get a pair of these as well. There’s a market of golf “sneakerheads” that these limited releases cater to – count me among that breed.
    The high price points make sense when you know the shoe will be in high demand. Leads to reduced prices on the older models as well. Everyone wins.

    I won 82 PGA tours by practicing with bare feet. Save the 200 bucks and cut a few strokes off your game by investing a solid lesson.

    • Jay

      Jan 28, 2015 at 2:47 pm

      Can’t you do both? Unless you’ve won 82 times, no one wants to see your bare feet on the course, lol. #buyapair

    I’ve still wear 2 pairs of the 8.5 and the 13’s I will give these a shot too when the price comes down. 13’s are the most comfortable. Yes, I am a shoe Ho!

    I notice Rory and a lot of other players not all of them Nike staffers are very happy with the lunars, the only person other than tiger I have seen wear the tw shoe is Francesco molinari. Says a lot about a shoe when virtually no one other than the guy who’s name is on them will wear them. I would buy the lunars because they are better in wet weather and cheaper. Pros don’t need to worry about those considerations and yet many of them still don’t wear them.

    • Kyle

      Jan 27, 2015 at 6:54 pm

      Other pros don’t wear them because they have TW on them….

    • Michael

      Jan 28, 2015 at 1:00 pm

      Exactly what Kyle said. Not many athletes want to wear a shoe with someone elses name on them. Not to mention a lot of tour players are not allowed to wear competitors shoes.

  22. Greg

    Jan 27, 2015 at 6:17 pm

    I still wear the TW 13 shoe. one of the most comfortable shoes I have worn. I still like the tour premiums the best though! The old guys always have a stupid comment about them…and I’m 56

  23. Brad Ingarfield

    Jan 27, 2015 at 6:15 pm

    I think they look great.

  24. JR

    Jan 27, 2015 at 5:28 pm

    Lots of experts here telling us how bad these shoes are without seeing the in person, let alone testing them in real playing conditions.

  25. R

    Jan 27, 2015 at 5:23 pm

    And why would you have fewer spikes in the wrong places, when guys like Ben Hogan ADDED spikes on the edges so they have more grip? What a stupid shoe

    • Kyle

      Jan 27, 2015 at 6:55 pm

      Yeah because Ben hogan had all of the technology back then to know where the optimal places for spikes were..

      • Teaj

        Jan 28, 2015 at 8:12 am

        its to early to think of a smart a$$ answer, but I agree with you Kyle.

    • Jack Nash

      Jan 28, 2015 at 12:47 pm

      I wouldn’t doubt he’s still conscious of his knee problems and torquing while having your feet stapled to the ground isn’t the best idea. You need a little slippage.

    It took 3 years from initial design to public release? wow

    These are $200 retail, incase anyone can’t read that the MSRP is $250.

    These things have slippery written all over them. Not for the early morning dew crowd or the rain players. Careful. I think you can’t beat the new Lunars that Rory is sporting when it comes to Nike’s golf shoes.

    These are nice, but so were the 2014’s which are now half off because these are coming out.

    • Chris Loskie

      Jan 27, 2015 at 7:15 pm

      Lol I agree… I still have and plan to buy another pair of 13’s and 14’s.. the 13’s are hands down the most comfortable golf shoe ive tried yet.. 14’s just have cool grey color lol..

    • Teaj

      Jan 28, 2015 at 8:15 am

      And we wonder why the golf industry is in shambles. naa ill wait until it comes down in price.

      • Chaz

        Jan 28, 2015 at 1:40 pm

        Ever hear of you get what you pay for. Want cheaper shoes then by cheaper ones.

Zozo Championship Tour Truck Report: Phil’s new driver and 2-wood, Tiger testing a new 3-wood

Published

on

Slower week than most at Sherwood but still a couple of nuggets—and who doesn’t love a Tiger/Phil equipment update?

Callaway

Phil Mickelson: After his (two drivers in the bag) win on the PGA Tour Champions, Lefty went full gearhead and continued to test not only the new Apex MB ’21 irons (6-PW) but also put a 47.5-inch Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero in the bag. The (low-lofted) 9-degree head, set now at 8 degrees (swing weight at D7) will be equipped with either a Project X HZURDUS Smoke Green 60 6.5 or a KBS TD 60G C5 TX.

In addition, Phil is bringing back the 2-wood having put a 43.5-inch, 12.5-degree “old school” X Hot 3 Deep. The idea with both is distance gain (non-shocker) for example on Tour there are a number of bunkers, forced carries at the 300+ clip and to be able to fly by those on command is a huge advantage. Dispersion will suffer a bit in this scenario, but that’s what the 2-wood is for. The new driver set up got Phil about 8 mph of additional ball speed and on avg a 310 carry. The 2 wood is to fill the larger gap created by the driver—this new fairway metal gives Phil about 280-285 carry.

Ping 

Tony Finau: Ping G425 LST (9 @7.5 Big-) with Diamana D+ 70TX tipped 1.5

Andrew Landry: Ping G425 LST (9 @8.75, flat) with Fujikura Ventus Blue 6X (46 Inches)

Joaquin Niemann: New Ping G425 7-wood (20.5 @20) in the bag with Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8X (20.5, 40.5 inches).

Titleist

Slow week, no major updates to report beyond Aaron Dill making 9,000 wedges for the players in early Augusta prep…

TaylorMade

Tiger Woods is testing a SIM Ti 3-wood with a Mitsubishi Chemical Diamana D+ 70 TX shaft. The 15-degree 3-wood is set at 14.25 and is on the upright setting. (42.5, D4, Golf Pride BCT 58R). Won’t know if it goes in play until tomorrow tee off…
