The Beaverton, Ore.-based athletic giant unveiled its Flyknit Chukka golf shoe today, which is available now via the brand’s website for $190. The Flyknit Chukka is currently available in two colorways for men (black/white and racer blue/white) and women (black/white and pink pow/white).
The trio of Mark Parker (Nike’s CEO and designer), Tinker Hatfield (designer) and Hiroshi Fujiwara (style ambassador) – collectively known as HTM – first introduced the Flyknit Chukka in 2013. The latest Flyknit Chukka, according to the brand, will bring a fresh aesthetic to the fairway and a sustainable twist to the sport.
The shoe features a golf-specific Nike Free-inspired sole that boasts superior traction elements in the toe and heel, as well as an upper lined with a thin TPU layer for water resistance.
The brand’s Flyknit technology allows the shoe’s one-piece upper to be light and formfitting. The process of putting together the shoe’s upper also produces less waste than other traditional shoemaking processes, and also uses less material. The upper also features Nike’s Flywire technology for support and lockdown.
Golfers including Patrick Rodgers, Jamie Lovemark and Kevin Tway have already worn the Flyknit Chukka on the golf course.
