PGA Tour veteran Charley Hoffman is in the field this week at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas, and he’s honoring the host city, and his hometown, with some custom FootJoys decked out with Vegas-related imagery.
Hoffman’s new kicks are primarily white, but include flashes of casino flair such as a pair of aces, slot machine 7s and playing card suits. The most notable Vegas-themed art on the shoes is a representation of the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” neon sign. A unique addition located underneath the sign is the word “STRONG” in big, bold text, which is presumably a nod to the survivors of the Mandalay Bay mass shooting last month. Check out the kicks below.

In addition to being a Las Vegas resident, Hoffman played college golf at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). Hoffman recently pledged to donate all of his winnings from the Shriners to the victims of the shooting massacre.
