The golf shoe has gone largely unchanged for as long as the game has been a sport, but now Nike wants to change that in a big way with their Flyknit Elite. Taking inspiration from their current running styles, the Elite is designed to secure the foot with its sock-like Flyknit upper while full-length Lunarlon adds cushioning while maintaining ground feel. The big feature here is that unconventional traction design that swaps the usual spikes with an outsole inspired by a tank-tread that gives you the most ground contact and traction possible.
