Our Favorite Things: Nike High Tops, GFore Hats, Ping Apparel

March 3, 2016

Every week we bring you the low-down on three of our favorite products in golf apparel, merchandise, and tech. Check out our picks below.

G/Fore Hats
The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is beloved as much for the celebrities who descend there as it is for the beautiful backdrops it provides. One of the most stylish attendees this year was actor Josh Duhamel, who was paired with Ryan Moore at the tournament. Duhamel sported a G/Fore cap that spelled out FORE in bold letters, and more than one fan was eager to know where to get a similar model. Lucky for them—and you—the new style, part of the company’s spring 2016 collection, goes on sale this month. For his part, Duhamel offered this comment on a selfie he posted from Pebble that featured one of G/Fore’s “Pray for Birdies” emblazoned lids: “Need a miracle to make the cut, so I’m going with this hat today.” $45, gfore.com.

Nike Flyknit Chukka High Tops
Ready to imitate Rickie Fowler’s on-course devotion to ankle-high sneakers? Nike has you covered: their Flyknit Chukka high-tops, recently seen on Brooks Koepka’s feet, are now available to the public. Choose from the black-and-white that Koepka wears or electric blue with lime-green details. Nike promises better support with a “sock-like fit” in breathable, flexible material. For the ladies, Michelle Wie’s audaciously pink Nike Blazers are still for sale. And if you want the full-on Rickie: Nike’s also selling joggers. $190, nike.com.

Ping Women’s Apparel
This year, Ping is revamping their clothing offerings, releasing both a new men’s and women’s collection for 2016. For women, purple, white, and blue polos are cut from Ping’s “sensor-cool” fabric, which is stretchy, quick-drying, wrinkle-averse, and sweat-wicking. There’s also a classic Merino wool cardigan in gray or royal blue, utilizing their “sensor-warm” technology to keep you cozy on the course. Belts, jackets, socks, shorts, skorts, and vests round out the collection. Keep an eye out for the new styles starting this month. from $69, ping.com.
