Matthew Wolff's tie-dyed Nike golf shoes have our attention
Nevermind that the foursome of Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff are carrying their own bags and wearing shorts for this TaylorMade Driving Relief match. Under the “golf equipment and apparel” column, nothing screamed louder at Seminole Golf Club on Sunday than Matthew Wolff’s tie-dyed golf shoes.
Wolff, at 21 the youngest player in the foursome by 10 years, clearly made the biggest wardrobe statement. Golf fans might have seen more of the colorful Nike shoes at the PGA Championship had it gone off as originally scheduled this past week at TPC Harding Park. Some Nike players were planning to wear them.
Wolff gave golf fans a sneak preview of the shoes by wearing them to a warm-up range session the day before the TaylorMade match. Live TV truly made them pop, however.
Late in the broadcast, it was revealed that Wolff plans to auction off the shoes for COVID-19 relief efforts after the match.
The bad news for all the golf fans who are coveting the footwear is that the shoes don’t appear on Nike’s web site. It remains to be seen whether the company offers the shoes to the public in the future – the interest is certainly there.
