Following up on the success of Tiger Woods’ Free-inspired Nike TW ’13, Nike Golf wanted to apply the technology to a new shoe for men and women. The result is the Nike FI Impact, built with a Free-inspired outsole for freedom of movement and maximum ground feel. Norwegian pro Suzann Pettersen teamed up with Nike designers to develop the women’s shoe, which mimics and conforms to the natural motion of the foot and allows prolonged contact with the ground, leading to more control and power with every shot. The men’s version of the Nike FI Impact, meanwhile, also uses the Nike Dynamic Fit system to help harness the foot for better support, combined with the Free-inspired platform and a waterproof mesh upper for increased flex and breathability. The Nike FI Impact is set to hit stores starting August 1st. Check out the introductory colorways for both men and women below.
