  1. We've talked several times over the last few weeks about how Nike will do golf differently than it has in the past. In case you need it, here's further proof. Ladies, and curious gentlemen, here's a little something for you. Behold Michelle Wie's unique Nike Blazer golf shoe. For her part in this, Wie is a bit of a sneakerhead who owns 20 pair of Nike Blazer shoes and another 50 pairs of NikeID shoes. Following on the...heels (sorry) of the recent announcement of the Nike Jordan VI golf shoe, and Rory McIlroy's Limited Edition Lunar Control 3s, Wie's Blazers shouldn't be any surprise, nor should the implication that Nike considers Wie to be one of their marquee golf athletes alongside Tiger and Rory. Equally as interesting is that the Blazer golf hightops were apparently Michelle's idea. “Michelle asked us to create a high top golf shoe,” said Joël Greenspan, footwear designer for Nike Golf. “She wanted to feel more support throughout her swing and greater connection to the ground. She also wanted a shoe that would reflect her distinct sense of style on and off the course. The Golf Blazer is a dynamic take on a classic silhouette; reengineered and rematerialized to reflect Michelle's elite level of play.” If you're thinking hightops are overkill for golf, Wie makes an argument for stability (while talking up the iconic style): “The Blazer is a versatile, stylish and high performance shoe,” said Wie. “The high top collar is so functional for me, providing the support I need through the impact of my swing. I love the fact that I can bring the iconic retro hoops look to the golf course.” Other than the can't-miss-pink colorway, noteworthy about Wie's new shoes is the inside tongue detail which features her 2014 US Open Winning score. The announcement was originally slated for a later date, but I'm told Michelle loved the shoes so much she wanted to wear them immediately. Actual retail availability won't come until early next year. Retail colorways will be white w/black swoosh and Midnight Navy w/ white swoosh. What do you think? Is this something you'd like to see carry over to the men's side?
