Nike introduces Masters-inspired Tiger Woods shoe

By Mike Stachura

As Spike Lee used to say in the old Nike Air Jordan commercials, "Money, it's got to be the shoes."

Nike's TW '13 LE will be in stores this week and features special green, yellow and red accents on the outsole, the top eye-stay and tongue. The shoe upper is made of waterproof synthetic leather and features an sole designed to conform to the foot's natural motion. Nike says the shoe, the standard versions of which have been difficult to keep in stock, will be available in limited quantities. Of course, the chances of Tiger's sometime golf partner Michael Jordan getting a pair seem high.

Mars Blackmon? Maybe not so much.
