Nike introduces the Nike Free-inspired Tiger Woods 2013 spikes. The natural motion engineered outsole is designed to mimic and conform to the natural motion of the foot, coupled with the protection and traction of a lightweight performance golf shoe. This innovative outsole allows the athlete to keep contact with the ground longer, better harnessing the energy of the foot to the shoe and, therefore, the shoe to the ground. The shoes also feature the new Dynamic Fit support system and flywire-infused nylon straps that extend 360° from the footbed to the lacing system. Can’t get more secure footing and adaptive fit than that!
