PGA Championship 2021: Seersucker on golf shoes? Nike stylishly remixes the coastal pattern on its newest golf shoe collection
Nike released a sneak peek of the limited edition PGA Championship golf shoes that will be seen at Kiawah’s Ocean Course. Three of the four styles in the Nike Seersucker Pack will be available for purchase this week, including the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour NRG, Nike Air Max 90 G and Air Jordan IV G golf shoes. The fourth style, the Air Zoom Victory Tour 2, will likely be seen on Nike athletes at Kiawah, but will not be available for purchase. The initial launch of the Air Zoom Infinity Tour and Air Max 90 G sold out within an hour of being released on Nike.com this week. If you missed out on the initial launch, there is a restock today at Golf Galaxy.
The collection features a seersucker pattern that is a common style found in classic coastal areas like Kiawah. Seersucker is typically a lightweight woven, striped fabric worn in the spring and summer seasons for a sophisticated look that’s comfortable to wear in the heat. Nike’s play on the classic style makes for a bright and beachy footwear pack with subtle details honoring the home state of this year’s PGA Championship, South Carolina.

The Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour is designed after the most recognizable version of seersucker—a light blue and white stripe pattern across the upper and sole of the shoe. A soft pink Nike swoosh brightens up the design and enhances the sporty styling of the sneaker-like golf shoe. As an extra nod to South Carolina and its flag, there is a palmetto tree graphic on the insoles.
Leaning a bit more on the pink-and-blue color block look, the Nike Air Max 90 G is bright, playful and ultra-stylish. Pink rubberized details balance the fabric-covered blue seersucker upper expertly, staying true to the recognizable Air Max design within the Kiawah-themed remix. The Air Max also comes with the palmetto tree insoles.
As usual, the Air Jordan IV G has the boldest design of the group. It’s a full-pink seersucker high-top with iconic Jordan shoe details and golf-ready performance elements. The summer-y shoe is sure to make a statement and has removable spikes, so you can wear them anywhere. While the Air Zoom Infinity Tour and the Air Max 90G will go on sale Monday, the Air Jordan IV G Golf shoes became available Wednesday—and as expected, sold out fast. This style is not available in the Golf Galaxy restock at this time, but check back for updates.
While you won’t be able to purchase, you may see the seersucker NRG of the Air Zoom Victory Tour at Kiawah. It’s the quietest design with a primarily white leather upper and simple pink swoosh. Soft blue seersucker details accent the heel and collar of the sophisticated shoe and a full seersucker-patterned outsole subtly pulls to the look together.
