For golf shoes specifically, you can give thanks to sportswear companies like Jordan Brand who have given gold kicks a breath of new life by fashioning its retro colorways into fairway-ready offerings. One trend that we’ve seen from the Beaverton-based imprint is the Air Jordan 1 Low Golf borrowing classic color schemes, and this newly surfaced “Shattered Backboard” iteration is a perfect example of that.
While the upper materials of this installment aren’t exactly the same as its muse, it certainly comes correct with the color palette. A solid black tone cascades over the nubuck Swooshes, overlays near the throat and forefoot, tongues, laces and interior liners. Quarters are made from an angelic tumbled leather and are sandwiched between bold orange toe boxes and lower heel overlays. In terms of branding, Jumpman logos on top of “GOLF” hits arrive on the tongues and the inserts. Below, the treading has been molded with thicker edges to give more wearers traction throughout their 18-hole games.
