Matthew Wolff’s Nike tie-dye shoes turned heads at Seminole – here’s the story behind them | Golf equipment: clubs, balls, bags
Several winners emerged from the TaylorMade Driving Relief charity match this weekend. Of course, those who helped raise $5.5 million for COVID-19 relief were the biggest winners, with Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson winning the competition against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff in a thrilling close-quarters playoff of the spindle. But Wolff has become a bigger sports fan base as the game’s rising star, and he’s turned heads for his shoe choice, sporting a pair of rainbow tie-dye Nike golf shoes. . We learned a little more about them.
The tie-dye golf shoes are part of the “Peace and Love” footwear collection designed by Nike for the 2020 PGA Championship at Harding Park. The rainbow dye pattern is inspired by San Francisco’s history as a hotbed of the counterculture and hippie movement in the 1960s.
You can expect to see more Nike pros sporting a similar pair of shoes during PGA Championship week, which has been postponed to the first full week of August. The shoe is expected to be sold by Nike closer to the new PGA date. And in the meantime, simpler versions of the Nike Roshe G Tour golf shoe are available now.
Wolff spotted the shoes during a practice session posted to Twitter the day before the game at the Seminole Golf Club in Florida.
During the match, it was announced that the shoes would be auctioned off after the round, with the proceeds going to COVID-19 relief efforts. The auction has since closed and the winner will be announced tonight.
For now, the lucky auction winner and a few Nike ambassadors are the only ones who can get their hands on the shiny kicks, but another eye-catching pair of Nikes recently dropped may help us wait for the time we’ve been waiting for. as tie-dyes hit shelves.
