Designed for Tiger Woods, the Nike TW '14 Men's Golf Shoe helps you unleash the full power of your swing with Nike-Free inspired technology, delivering incredible flexibility from the ground up. It updates the previous version with an ultra-breathable upper, while Dynamic Flywire remains for adaptable support on the course.
The forefoot design helps provide optimal traction and power control. The Nike Power Transfer Zone in the midsole offers better balance, smoother weight transfer and more power through impact.
Tiger Woods prefers training in shoes that feature Nike Free technology. "I love training in it, running in it, lifting in it," he said. "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 maximize Woods’ game—and now yours. This innovative golf shoe allows athletes to keep contact with the ground longer, better harnessing the energy of the foot to the shoe and, therefore, the shoe to the ground
After learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot on the university's golf course, three of Nike's most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless, similar to bare feet. In 2002, they examined a group of men and women with pressure-measuring insoles taped to their feet, using high-speed cameras to capture images of each foot in motion. The team spent eight years studying the biomechanics of shoeless running. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot's natural landing angle, pressure and toe position, allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.
The Nike Free-inspired outsole offers increased flexibility and full athletic motion. It's designed to mimic and conform to the natural motion of the foot, allowing you to keep contact with the ground longer, supplying more power through your golf swing.
The redesigned ventilated upper delivers enhanced breathability and comfort. Strategic perforations and a more comfortable mesh tongue lend necessary ventilation without sacrificing waterproof protection for damp conditions.
Nike Dynamic Flywire technology cradles the foot for an adaptive, glove-like fit. Flywire consists of ultra-light yet sturdy cables that hug and move with the foot during your swing, stabilizing it while allowing for full mobility.

- Champ Zarma with Tri-LOK spikes at heel and forefoot for traction and stability where it's needed most.
