Nike, Rory McIlroy collaborate on Air Zoom Victory Tour golf shoes

February 18, 2019
Rory McIlroy debuted the Nike Air Zoom Tour Victory at the Genesis Open.

Rory McIlroy’s Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour golf shoes will soon be available at retail. The four-time major winner debuted a custom PE version at the Genesis Open that was designed with his direct input — from the overall shape and feel to the toe-down look and cushion.

During the first half of 2018, McIlroy met with Nike designers on numerous occasions to offer feedback on the design of the shoe. The final version McIlroy wore at Riviera features Nike’s React foam — a technology initially introduced in mid-2017 in the basketball space to provide a “soft and springy” feel with ample stability that translates to the course.

The Zoom Air unit in the forefoot offers additional cushioning when walking and swinging, while the Swoosh’s Flyweave material fine tunes support for specific movements.

Waterproof premium leather gives the shoe a “classic” look while keeping moisture out at the same time. The words “All day comfort. Tee to green” is printed on the sockliner to reinforce the comfort technologies the shoe provides.

Nike’s Air Zoom Victory Tour will be available March 1 in two colorways (white and black).
