With the Memorial Day holiday upon us in the U.S., Adidas golf has released an ultra-patriotic golf shoe design to help celebrate at home and abroad. The Nations Pack features five limited edition models of the CODECHAOS golf shoe, each representing a different part of the world: the U.S., Canada,U.K., Japan and South Korea . The U.S.A. version is the only model currently available in the U.S., but we got a sneak peek at the entire collection that’s likely to be seen again in Tokyo at the rescheduled Olympic games.
The U.S.A. Edition features the American flag on the heel of the shoe and incorporates the flag’s colors throughout the design. The primarily white golf shoe has a red midsole made with the company’s comfortable Boost technology that provides a responsive feel on each step. The spikeless outsole also has red hits on the ball of the foot at strategically placed twist grip gears that add extra traction and support. A blue Adidas badge on the tongue matches the brand’s three stripes on the side of the shoe and coloring of the liner.
The Americana shoe is available now at adidas.com. The other four versions are not sold in the U.S., but are available to purchase in their respective countries.
With tie-dye popular in fashion, golf has been waiting for its moment to try out the trend. When the initial announcement that the 2020 PGA Championship would be played at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, golf brands saw an opportunity. Pulling inspiration from the iconic Haight-Ashbury neighborhood in San Francisco that was the epicenter of 1960s counterculture and where tie-dye was the unofficial uniform of its free-spirited residents, Puma launched a full golf-appropriate tie-dye collection last week. If you're anticipating oversize rainbow t-shirts, think again. Patterns primarily stay in a single color family with hints of white. The line includes a sweatshirt, hats, golf shoes and golf shirts for both adults and junior golfers.
Luxe golf apparel company Greyson and the golf bag experts at Jones are releasing three new collaborative products—a golf bag, duffle and crewneck sweatshirt. The two bags feature Greyson's signature Navajo print in a quiet-yet-stylish grey colorway. The golf bag weighs five pounds, fits a full set of clubs and has a pocket for just about everything. The insulated beverage pocket fits two cans and a mesh tech pocket fits a portable speaker, built to keep your device protected without muffling the sound. The duffle is great for weekend trips or to hold a change of clothes when you're on the course. The duo's collaborative crewneck sweatshirt is comfortable enough to wear at home but the refined details make it golf-course-appropriate, too. Contrasting ribbed cuffs, hem and collar class up the simple sweatshirt while the kangaroo pouch pocket adds utility with a touch of modern styling.
Stitch launched a new travel backpack with enough space and utility for a trip of any length. The bag can be used as a backpack or duffle and has ultra-comfortable straps for either use. It's got a padded laptop sleeve, expandable water bottle pocket and is made with a water- and stain-resistant ballistic nylon.

The Flex golf shorts stretch with your body and retain shape for a clean look. The built-in belt offers utilitarian styling and a customizable fit while the inner waistband is lined with a tacky texture to keep shirts tucked in.

The collection also includes the Nike Classic 99 hat in four color options and a white printed charm belt for lucky accessorizing options, too.

Over two years in the making, the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour Golf Shoe is a collaboration with World No. 1 Brooks Koepka and the Nike golf team to develop a true running-shoe-inspired golf shoe. The waterproof Flyknit upper borrows moisture-repelling technology from Nike's global football team and is paired with a reactive cushioning plate borrowed from the basketball product lines to enhance comfort and vertical energy return during the golf swing. At the bottom of the shoe, Koepka made sure to put the traction through rigorous on-course testing to ensure a no-slip experience in this three-spiked shoe. An ultra-wide single heel spike provides a stable base without adding extra weight. Nike’s Air Zoom Infinity Tour golf shoe will be available April 1 on nike.com.
