Nike Golf Brings Another Icon to the Course

These days, the word “icon” is casually applied to everything from online video clips to sweet potato pies. By formal definition, however, an icon is a “person who is very successful and admired” or a “widely known symbol.” The Nike Air Force 1, which debuted in 1982 and has since served as a canvas for artists and designers of all ilk, indisputably achieves this latter classification. In its mutability, the shoe has become a global street-culture standard. But it is the fundamental form of the Air Force 1 that has facilitated its enduring status.

Now, the celebrated shoe is taking its 30-year heritage to to the golf course. Designed with lightweight Lunarlon cushioning and waffle-tread Integrated Traction for stability, the Nike Lunar Force 1 G is the latest addition to the Air Force 1 legacy.

Worn on the PGA Tour by Nike athlete Tony Finau, the Nike Lunar Force 1 G ($140) will be available April 1 in two colorways (black/white and white/white) at and select retailers.
