The Nike brand has released some of the most innovative, influential, and unique shoes that the industry has ever seen. Tiger Woods has been part of the Nike family since 1996 when he turned pro. Nike had been in the golf business since 1984, but it was the signing of Woods that elevated the Nike Golf brand. Woods has had his own signature line since day one, when they released his Air Zoom TW and Air Zoom Sport TW shoes. In June 2012 Nike released the TW 13’s, their newest and most innovative Tiger Woods golf shoes to date. The TW 13’s are designed using the Nike ‘Free’ shoe platform technology, and then customized for Tiger.

Many golfers wear special shoes. The shoes can be spikeless or with spikes attached to the soles. The spikes can be made of metal or plastic (plastic spikes are also known as “soft spikes”) designed to increase traction thus helping the player to keep his/her balance during the swing, on greens, or in wet conditions. In an attempt to minimize the severity of spike marks made on greens, many golf courses have banned metal spikes, allowing only plastic spikes during play.
Spikes on most golf shoes are replaceable, being attached using one of two common methods: a thread or a twist lock. Two sizes of thread are in common use, called a “large thread” and “small thread”. There are two common locking systems: Q-LOK and Tri-LOK (also called “Fast Twist”). The locking systems use a plastic thread which takes only about a half turn to lock.
