Take Flight on the Fairway: Air Jordan 13 Golf
Drawing direct inspiration from the Air Jordan XIII basketball shoe, the Air Jordan 13 Golf shoe shares many of the same elements. In 1997, Tinker Hatfield fashioned the AJ13 hoop shoe outsole after a cat’s paw, to provide MJ with great articulation and court traction.
The AJ13 Golf shoe applied those same principles, allowing the shoe to move with optimal motion. The paw-like tooling of the articulated outsole provides the perfect blend of balance and flexibility, which allows the athlete to have a stable platform on the various undulations and surfaces faced during a golf round.
The full-length Lunarlon midsole provides soft yet responsive lightweight cushioning while the premium leather upper is designed with medial and lateral overlays that offer a 1-year waterproof guarantee. These overlays also incorporate non-stretch synthetic leathers that assist in upper, mid-foot and heel support.
The Air Jordan 13 Golf shoe is for the golf athlete that appreciates sophisticated styling with an athletic twist. It’s the perfect blend of a classic Air Jordan model that brings style to the sport of golf.
Offered in two colorways: White/University Red and White/Black.
First available May 18 on Nike+ and May 19 on nike.com and at select retail partners. MSRP $200
