Tiger Woods is ready to bring some new flavor to the green by wearing the all-new Nike TW ’13 – a combination of rugged Free-soled spikes and a sleek stitch-less minimalist upper. More ‘SFB’ than ‘golf’, the TW ’13 appears to be one of the most advanced golf shoes to date – quite a fit for a golfer who dominated the game like the Jordans and Tysons of the world. Two colorways of the TW ’13 will drop on June 8th – both retailed for $180 – and should be available at Nike Golf retailers as well as Nikestore, so let us know if you’d lace these up!

Nikes football (soccer) shoes cost 250 plus dollars. These shoes cost 180 for the same reason foams are 180, the technology involved is costly. @amarillo Tiger's lack of sting isn't because of p***y its a lack of it. That and the secrecy/thrill involved in doing that many women while married that's why he sucks.
Tiger has no sting anymore. Too many pu§§y made him blind and never recovered. Did Rachel Uchitel real hard drove her brains crazy.
Why is that funny? People pay almost that price for retros that they wont ball in but if a serious gollfer wants to pay those prices for the latest technology to actually play in that price becomes laughable?
Funny is that they are pretty much running shoes with cleats on them. And in golf you don't rely on the shoes as much as other sports like Football. Football cleats are not even that expensive and they have more material and technology in it. Why is the price so funny? This a $80 nike running shoes with a minimalist upper and rubber cleats on. Why may the price tag be like that? It's because the majority of golf players have money to pay more for something that Nike just throw together. They don't get better quality or material than any other Nike running shoes. I'm laughing at the fact that Nike used a nice marketing strategy that many people don't see. My comment was directed to Nike not golfers or whoever buys them.
Anyone who's ever played golf - well - understands that solid footing (ie the grip your spikes give) is the foundation upon which the entire swing hinges. To say that spikes are less important in golf than football is a stretch at best. And yes the average golfer can likely afford to spend a few dollars more than, say, the average rec league bballer but previous TW models has MSRP's of $225-250 so while you may scoff at the $180 price tag, a lot of TW loyalist, myself included, are glad to see the discount.
@rc2flexforce these are the only golf shoes of its kind so be it being 180 a lot of golf shoes are much more expensive and even though they're minimalistic they are the only ones so if you want a pair like that pay the price same as retros if u want it pay the big price tag
