First introduced in 1988 and designed by Tinker Hatfield as a reflection of MJ’s legendary performance and personality attributes, the Air Jordan III is back with a vengeance – as the Jordan Retro 3.
Nike has retooled the classic sneaker for the golf course. Keeping original elements of the shoe, including the high-performance tumbled white leather upper, gray elephant print and the Jumpman logo on the heel. The shoe adds a full-length Lunarlon midsole for comfort and stability on the links.
Air Jordan III Golf Premium Edition
In addition to the Air Jordan III Golf, Nike also released the new Air Jordan III Golf Premium edition which features Bronze metal finishes to complement the exceptional leather and brown elephant print on this golf-specific version.
The new released golf shoes are available at select retailers for $200 USD and the premium edition costing $220 USD.
Nike Roshe G
An iconic shoe known for its ultimate comfort and breathability, the Nike Roshe was first introduced in 2012. Six years later, the silhouette is re-engineered for the links.
The key feature making the Roshe G course-ready is a pressure-mapped outsole that targets high-wear areas, which gives the shoe increased durability and traction in key zones. It’s also wearable off-course, which reinforces the comfort pedigree, along with the new design’s long-range durability and versatility.
Sport-specific upper enhancements have also been made. For instance, the mesh is thoughtfully wrapped with a synthetic overlay integrated with the laces to give golfers a locked-down feel.
Poler x Nike SB Janoski Slip-On
Going back to its Oregon roots, Nike SB has teamed up again with local Northwest brand Poler to deliver the ultimate laid-back Janoski.
Influenced by the idea of “business in the front, party in the back,” the soft blue premium suede upper paired with the pink sole gives this shoe a bit of flare. A distinctive Poler-designed character embossed on the heel pays homage to the brand’s roots.
The Air Jordan III Golf, Air Jordan III Golf Premium, Nike Roshe G, and Poler x Nike SB Janoski Slip-On are all available on nike.com and at select retailers.
