World renowned golfing champion Tiger Woods recently returned to the game following an injury to his left knee and Achilles tendon – but while not actively playing, Woods teamed up with Nike shoe guru Tobie Hatfield to create the Nike Free Tiger Woods Prototype.
The special golfing adaptation of the Nike Free brings technology to the course while helping Woods to ease up on his vulnerable past injuries. Nike Free is intended to give Woods greater stability when addressing the ball all while allowing power to disperse through his swing rather than body. The latter is a byproduct of natural motion technology minimizing static feet.
While Free is a first in golf, it’s not the only tech highlight on this Woods makeup. A polyurethane coated stretch fabric likens the prototype to the Hyperfuse 2011 while a half heel counter adds stability similar to that of the Zoom Kobe VI. Flywire is attached to each lace loop while recycled Air Max units melted into thread wrap the heel. It’s still unknown when this super shoe will reach retailers.
