Themed colorways for the majors and the Players Championship have been a trend of late. Plenty of footwear companies have jumped into the mix, including Nike’s themed Air Max 90s and FootJoy’s Players collaboration with designer Jon Buscemi.
No such colorways turn heads like those designed for The Masters.
New Balance recently released their Masters themed Limited Edition 997 Golf shoe which gives a nod to the season’s first major.
A white midsole and upper is splashed with green leather accents on the toe cap, tongue and collar while the New Balance logo is trimmed in Augusta National yellow. The outsole is green and yellow with a ridge for stability that, if stared at for long enough, looks like a nod to Ray’s Creek.
Made for players, the 997 Golf colorway reminds us more of the iconic coveralls that caddies wear at ANGC.
DonThe 997 Golf features a waterproof microfiber leather upper to help you stay dry and fresh during your round. An Abzorb midsole (10mm) gives premium responsiveness and lightweight cushioning step after step while the Ndurance rubber outsole is designed to move naturally with your foot.
The spiked shoe also features Fast Twist 3.0 Pulsar® replaceable cleats, a CUSH+ insole for added comfort and weigh in at an astonishingly light 11.4 ounces.
While you may never be able to play Augusta National, these shoes will have your feet saying Amen (Corner).
