To hell with the old days; wear jeans in the clubhouse, listen to music during the round and stunt these Air Jordan I golf shoes. Make birdies and talk trash — No. 23 would be proud.
“MJ introduced his provocative style of play to professional basketball in 1984, and the Air Jordan I shocked the world at the same time,” says Gentry Humphrey, VP Nike Golf Footwear. “Interestingly, Michael started to take up the game of golf in 1984, the exact same year Nike started to develop the Air Jordan I.”
In 1984, Nike spurred a movement that would change the world forever. That movement was born with the launch of the Air Jordan I.
“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.”
These are almost identical to the original basketball shoe except for the soft spikes and a fully waterproof upper. We’re happy to hear they’re functional, but it’s the black and red that will make these fly off the shelves.
The Air Jordan I golf shoe will be available in two colors (white/black/varsity red and white/metallic silver) beginning February 10 for a suggested retail price of $200.
