Building upon the success of last year’s TW’13, Nike Golf has unveiled an enhanced and modified look to the new Nike TW’14 footwear, as worn by the World No.1 himself.

Tiger Woods debuted the new Nike shoe in dramatic fashion at The Players Championship earlier this month, when he won his 78th PGA Tour title, and then made it 79 with victory at the WGC-Bridgestone on Sunday.

The original Nike TW’13 was created through insights from Woods himself, who stated: “I train with Nike Free technology all the time… I love training in it, running in it, lifting in it. So I asked, why can’t I play golf in it?” 

With that, Nike designers set to work creating a Nike Free-inspired golf shoe tailored to maximise Woods’ game.

Through his inspiration, hands-on testing and detailed feedback, Nike Golf has continued the collaboration with Woods on the new Nike TW’14, further enhancing the fit, feel and function.

This golf shoe is by far one of the most comfortable and lightest pair of strides I've worn before. This is all thanks to the natural motion engineered outsole that  mimics and conforms to the natural motion of the foot.

This innovative outsole also allows me to keep contact with the ground longer and better, harnessing the energy of the foot to the shoe and, therefore, the shoe to the ground.
 
The new upper features improved ventilation that delivers increased breathability and comfort thanks to strategically located perforations and a more comfortable mesh tongue.

Verdict

Great shoe and really looks the part in Tiger black and red colours. I also like how Nike Dynamic Fit with Flywire technology cradles the foot for a tight fit and how the ventilated upper provides good breathability and comfort throughout. However, at £150 a pair, they're not cheap.
