Nike Golf’s new Zoom Bandon shoe has been built for the kind of golfer who refuses to be kept off the course because of a bit of moisture in the air – and on the ground – then with you in mind.
Designed from the ground up to deal with the worst possible conditions under foot, the boot-style Bandon laughs in the face of water and kicks mud in the face of, well, mud.
It’s seam-sealed synthetic upper acts likes like a protective skin around the body of the shoe, offering the ultimate in weatherproof protection, durability and functionality for wet conditions. The Bandon also features a zippered closure which forms an impermeable layer to prevent moisture from entering from all angles, keeping feet cosy and, above all, dry.
Other external features include additional protection around the toe area, with a seam-sealed double last ensuring extreme durability, while a leather pull tab on the heel helps you step into the shoe with ease.
The inherent breathable quality of the synthetic uppers ensures that conditions inside the shoe remain comfortable at times, with perspiration able to escape quickly and efficiently, while still keeping unwanted moisture out. A full-length removable Poron sockliner further enhances the in-shoe comfort.
Aside from the high-cut boot design, which provides ankle cover from wet grass and high rough, the Bandon features all of the creature comforts offered in Nike Golf’s tour-level shoes, including the Power Platform outsole for efficient energy transfer, Zoom Air cushioning for unparalleled comfort, as well as newly-designed cleat and nub configuration, which stops grass sticking to the underside of the shoe and ensures enhanced traction even in the wettest of conditions.
Each pair comes with a two-year limited waterproof warranty, and is available from September 2009 with RRP: £110, €180, SEK 1595
