Jordan Spieth is about to clock up some air-miles.
In support of his first signature Under Armour golf shoe, the Spieth One, he's heading off on a Global Tour that kicks off in Tokyo, followed by Seoul, Los Angeles and finally Mexico City ahead of the shoe being available to the public on March 1st.
Kevin Ross, General Manager, Global Golf at Under Armour:
This is an exciting moment for the Under Armour brand and the UA Golf category. We’re honoured to introduce the Spieth One on the first stop of the 2017 Spieth One Global Tour. With engaging activation's, unique cultural experiences and more, we are showcasing Jordan’s love of the game and Under Armour’s commitment to providing world-class product, all while driving the game of golf forward on a global scale.
The Spieth One has been engineered with the same level of detail that Spieth applies to his game on the golf course. Under Armour says the shoe has been engineered "Down to a Science" resulting in a bold and innovative golf shoe, with some of the technical design elements dictated by the former World Number 1's game.
The Spieth One is 100% waterproof preventing any water from entering the shoe even in the toughest conditions whilst still allowing the foot to breathe and any perspiration to escape.
The upper of the shoe is comprised of just a single seam to reduce layers and weight at the same time as enhancing the overall fit and feel of the shoe.
The golf swing is supported thanks to groundbreaking Rotational Resistance Traction that means the Spieth One prevents the rotation of the foot during the swing from load up to impact. A dual durometer outsole design gives a softer forefoot for flexibility at the same time of firming up the heel for stability and support.
