Heels are boldly growing higher in golf. The Puma Titan Tour Ignites that Rickie Fowler sported while wowing the gallery and winning the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship back in January sure helped spawn the mania, but these mid-tops from Nike are a much more accessible foray into the space for golfers reluctant to follow Fowler’s notoriously brash fashion cues.

It really was only a matter of time before the fashion and fabrication innovation of the featherweight Flyknit kicks made it to a fairway near you. The flexibility is insane in a good way and a TPU layer on the bottom keeps the wet out when you’re traipsing through the rough. With Rory and the Nike’s roster of Pros rocking these chukkas on TOUR this year you’re going to see a helluvah lot more of them.
