The Air Jordan I golf shoe is available February 10 in two colorways
(RELEASE) - More than 30 years after the debut of the Air Jordan I, Nike Golf is introducing the iconic silhouette to the course.
Entering Jordan’s rookie year, Nike looked for a way to create a shoe that could match his other-worldly talents on the court while also defying the status quo.
“The Air Jordan I was the first sneaker that really pushed the limits on what was acceptable,” recalls Michael Jordan. “It’s like being a young kid, when his parents say he can’t do something but he wants to do it. I felt like I wanted to be different.”
This limited offering features a few notable changes from the original basketball shoe, including extra padding to provide additional comfort and support around the ankle, Jumpman logo on the tongue, Nike Free-inspired outsole with soft spikes and a fully waterproof upper.
The Air Jordan I golf shoe will be available in two colorways (white/black/varsity red and white/metallic silver) beginning Feb. 10 at nike.com and select retailers.
