Check out Jason Day’s Nike high-top shoes at the British Open

July 20, 2017

Jason Day is bringing a little swagger to the British Isles this week.

Day sported white Nike high-top shoes during the first round of the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale. The shoes look similar to the ones Michelle Wie often wears on the LPGA tour, the Nike Blazers.

In his original scripting, Day was supposed to be wearing Nike Lunar Control Vapor shoes, but it seems he’s opted for a little extra flair to kick the week off. But not everyone was having it.

Fans took to Twitter to express their opinions on Day’s footwear — and most of it wasn’t complimentary.

Some thought that Day was encroaching on fellow pro Rickie Fowler’s signature high-top style.

 

And while we all know this is the oldest championship in golf, this reference might be a bit of a stretch.
