A lot of things have changed in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco since the Summer of Love in 1967. The fantastically detailed houses are still there, but they’ve been joined by a Whole Foods, and you’re more likely to see electric-powered Tesla’s rolling along the streets than beat-up Volkswagen vans with fumes drifting from the windows and Grateful Dead bumper stickers on the back.
The neighborhood’s style influence remains, however, and with the PGA Championship scheduled to start next week at TPC Harding Park, several brands are taking their cues from San Francisco’s tie-dye culture of the 1960s.
Nike has just released the “Peace, Love and Golf” version of its golf footwear lineup. As seen below, special editions of the Air Zoom Infinity Tour, Roshe G Tour, Air Max 97 G, Zoom Victory Tour and the Jordan V G are being made available.
Brooks Koepka has worn this shoe in 2020, and at TPC Harding Park, Cameron Champ and Patrick Reed will wear them too. Nike members will be able to get these shoes Aug. 3. They go on sale to the public Aug. 6.
Nike released a golf version of the Jordan V basketball shoes in February and a few PGA Tour players, including Pat Perez, have worn them in practice rounds. They go on sale Aug. 7.
The tie-dye theme in the Jordan V G continues inside the shoes.
A white and silver golf version of the popular Air Max 97, affectionately known as the “Silver Bullets” by sneakerheads, sold out quickly in early January. Like the running shoes, the Air Max 97 G has lots of cushioning. Nike members will be able to get these shoes Aug. 3. They go on sale to the public Aug. 6.
Nike is not anticipating any players wearing the Air Max 97 G at TPC Harding Park during the PGA Championship, but they will make a bold statement at your course.
The soles of Nike’s “Peace, Love and Golf” shoes have detailing too.
If this version of the Roche G Tour seems a little familiar, you’re flashing back to the TaylorMade Driving Relief event. Matthew Wolff wore a pair of these shoes in the COVID-19 benefit events at Seminole Golf Club in May. Nike members will be able to get these shoes Aug. 3. They go on sale to the public Aug. 6.
Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari, Jason Day and Russell Henley are expected to wear the Roshe G Tour in during some or all of the 2020 PGA Championship.
