To start off the first major championship of the year with a bang, Nike Golf has created a Nike Free inspired golf shoe called the TW ’13. The inspiration for the shoe started with Tiger Woods himself. He wanted a golf shoe that would give the same feel as his Nike Free sneakers when he’s training.
Nike Golf’s footwear creation team and Nike’s Innovation Kitchen, led by Tobie Hatfield created the Nike TW ’13 Limited Edition. It features an innovative outsole that provides flexibility to keep athletes to the ground longer. It’s also equipped with Dynamic Fit support that delivers an off the charts strength-to-weight ratio and one-to-one fitted support.
Limited quantities of this footwear will be available March 28, 2013 in retailers across the country as well as through www.nike.com. The retail price is set at $180

The Nike TW ’13 Limited Edition shoe (MAP $179.99) is crafted of waterproof multi-stretch synthetic leather in white, a NIKE FREE Inspired outsole popped in green, a touch of yellow on the top eye-stay and a hint of red in the TW logo on the tongue.
“The NIKE FREE Inspired TW ‘13 has done exceptionally well at retail with consumers raving about the performance of the shoe. Since its debut, we haven’t been able to keep the TW’13 in stock. We decided to release a limited edition version to celebrate the first major of the season.” said Lee Walker, Nike Golf’s Footwear Product Director.
The inspiration behind the Nike TW ‘13 footwear began with Tiger Woods himself. He asked for a shoe that gave him the same performance fit and feel as his NIKE FREE shoes when he runs and trains. That question ignited collaboration between Woods, Nike Golf’s footwear creation team and Nike’s Innovation Kitchen, led by Tobie Hatfield.
The NIKE FREE Inspired outsole is designed to mimic and conform to the natural motion of the foot, coupled with the protection and traction of a lightweight performance golf shoe. This innovative outsole delivers flexibility that allows the athlete to keep contact with the ground longer, unleashing the full power of their swing.
The Nike TW ’13 also features the Nike Dynamic Fit support system. Targeted support delivers unprecedented strength-to-weight ratio and one-to-one fitted support. Flywire infused nylon straps extend 360° from the footbed to the lacing system, securing the foot for an adaptive fit that provides golfers stability with mobility.
