The Nike Flyknit Chukka silhouette was originally designed and unveiled back in 2013, and now the popular model is making its first appearance at the golf course, a first for Flyknit, brings a fresh aesthetic to the fairway and a sustainable twist to the sport.
A revolutionary manufacturing method, Flyknit enables designers to micro-engineer every stitch of the Chukka to create a featherweight, formfitting one-piece upper while simultaneously reducing manufacturing waste and materials. The upper is further enhanced by Nike Flywire technology for support and lockdown.
Next, to bring the silhouette inline with golf needs, a golf-specific Nike Free-inspired sole unit, with superior traction elements in the toe and heel, is added. And the upper is also skinned with a thin TPU layer for water resistance against light rain and morning dew.
The Nike Flyknit Chukka golf shoe has been worn on the course by Patrick Rodgers, Jamie Lovemark and Kevin Tway. It is available to the public in two colorways for men (Black/White and Racer Blue/White) and women (Black/White and Pink pow/White) at Nike.com and select retailers. The retail price tag is set at $190 USD.
