There are plenty of cult followings in golf, with fans of some products forming clubs, swapping things and buying rare gear online.
For example, Scotty Cameron fans pages are everywhere on Instagram, while other people covet vintage-style golf bags or headcovers. Lots of golfers wear Nike golf shoes, there is a sub-brand, the Jordan Brand, that has also developed a cult following over the years.
Pat Perez and Keegan Bradley have been wearing Jordan basketball shoes that have been converted into golf shoes for years, and Harold Varner is another PGA Tour player who wears Jordans on the course and is sponsored by the division of Nike.
Just like the basketball shoes, the Jordan golf shoes typically sell out quickly when they are released, with golf lovers and sneakerheads snapping up the shoes in a flash. If you are looking for Jordan 3, Jordan XI Concords or the Jordan 13s, happy hunting. But your chance to get a pair of Jordan golf shoes comes again on Friday, Feb. 28 at 10 a.m. Eastern when Nike releases the Jordan 5 Low golf shoes. They will be $220 a pair on Nike’s website.
According to Nike, the look of the original Jordan 5 Low basketball shoe was inspired by fighter jets. The new golf version keeps the same look, with a translucent outsole and the mid-sole has fang-like shapes that harken back to vintage planes.
The Jordan Brand’s iconic Jumpman logo adorns the back.
The Jordan 5 Low has visible Air-Sole unit under the heel and foam midsole for extra comfort and cushioning when you walk.
It looks like a basketball sneaker, but there are plenty of golf-specific traction elements on the Jordan 5 Low’s translucent sole.
Like the original basketball shoes, the Jordan 5 Low golf shoes come with a lace lock mechanism.
These shoes were so hot that they sold out most sizes in mere hours. Check out this link to Get Yours NOW!
