Want the shoes Tiger Woods wore during his victory at The Players Championship? The new Nike TW ’14 shoe will be available beginning June 7. Woods wore the shoes in competition for the first time at The Players this past week. He had been sporting the TW ’13 shoes.
The TW ’14 shoe is the first Nike Golf shoe to be made available on NIKEiD with previews beginning May 20.
Nike Golf says the “natural motion” engineered outsole of the Nike TW’14 is designed to mimic and conform to the natural motion of the foot, and still deliver all the protection and traction of a lightweight performance golf shoe.

The new upper, Nike Golf says, features improved ventilation that delivers increased breathability and comfort. This was achieved through strategically located perforations and a more comfortable mesh tongue providing athletes the ventilation they want without compromising the waterproof protection they need.
The new TW’14 footwear, which will carry a street price of $180 per pair, stays true to Woods’ signature colors – White, Black and Red – and also adds a new colorway to the mix, Cool Grey with Vivid Blue and Venom Green accents (available Aug. 1).
In addition, Nike Golf says that with the fully customizable TW’14 iD version, consumers can create the “perfect combination” of breathability and traction for their playing conditions. In addition to choosing a wide-range of color combinations, golfers can choose between two distinct uppers: waterproof and breathable.
The waterproof upper, according to Nike Golf, is made of multi-stretch synthetic leather for weather protection and durability, and the breathable upper (available exclusively with NIKEiD) features lightweight mesh to keep feet comfortable on hot days. The TW’14iD is available in two outsoles – the Spike version and the Integrated Traction option (molded rubber). Consumers can also personalize their
shoes by adding their name or a message to the inside tongues.
