Nike's new tennis-inspired golf shoe is clean and sleek

July 10, 2017

The Nike Tennis Classics have stood the test of time while transcending their sport. They first appeared on tennis courts during the 1970s, and today you can find fashion-first versions of them at stores like J.Crew, Urban Outfitters, and Bloomingdale's.


And now, Nike is making Nike Tennis Classics for golfers.


The newly-launched Nike Course Classics ($100), which are available for both men and women, are clean, modern and sleek. While they come in a variety of colors, we especially love the fresh, all-white versions. Their uppers are made from a combination of real and synthetic leathers, and their outsoles are designed to offer ultimate traction where golfers need it most. They're also designed with Phylon midsoles -- a spongy foam that's been used in almost every performance shoe from Nike.


It's been a while since Nike has offered a clean, fashion-forward golf shoe. Luckily for us, that's no longer the case.
