Nike has been making golf products since the late 1990s, originally manufacturing a full range of equipment including footwear, clothing, balls and bags. Today, it focuses solely on what it has always been best at, producing world class golfing footwear, clothing, and accessories for both professional and amateur players.
Nike strives to achieve two things with its golfing shoes, clothing and accessories. Firstly, it aims to create kit which enhances your performance on the course and give you as much of a game advantage as possible; and secondly, it wants to give you the edge when it comes to style and comfort. It is this combination of class and character that has propelled Nike to its predominant position in world sport.
Nike’s golfing footwear is used by a wide range of PGA pros, including Rory McIlroy, Jason Day and Michelle Wie. The key reason for its popularity and success among the world’s leading player is down to the fact that it uses game enhancing technology. Nike Lunar Control golfing shoes, for example, have ‘Articulated Integrated Traction’, a design feature that gives a secure grip whilst allowing you to move naturally through a stable, smooth swing. The secure grip is created by Nike’s Flywire technology, a snowmobile-inspired traction system that locks down your feet as you swing.
Besides shoes, Nike also provides a wide range of golf clothing for both men and women, it makes everything from summertime t-shirts and dresses to gilets and coats for the colder parts of the year. The same applies to their accessories, with everything from sun visors to winter mittens. You’ll also find a range of gloves, hats and umbrellas, too.
