Kuchar wore customized Skechers’ Go Golf Pro shoes in the black colorway.
The leather footwear features technical waterproofing with a Softspikes sole, which improves stability, and Resalyte shock-absorbing midsole; retailing for $140 online.
When Kuchar went to accept his medal on the podium, he switched his cleats for a pair of neon green Nikes.
“I’ve never been so happy with a third-place finish in my life,” Kuchar told reporters. “I can’t explain to you the pride that I feel now, just busting out of my chest.”
Kuchar joined Team USA golf after Jordan Spieth dropped out of the competition, citing health concerns.
Spieth echoed a number of golf stars who opted out of the Olympics, among them Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy.
