A Seamus and Nike Shoe Collab? Yes, please.
It’s not often that I write about shoe launches on this site, but this one was simply too good not to mention.
Seamus Golf has been one of my favorite brands in golf for years. Not only is the team made up of great people, but it’s been awesome to see how they’ve evolved from being simply the “head cover company” to creating a wider range of unique accessories and products for the golf world.
And their latest project? Well, this shows just how far they’ve come since the days of company’s founders Megan and Akbar, sewing head covers in their garage.
Today, Seamus announced their recent collaboration with Nike on a limited edition version of the Air Zoom Victory Tour.
When I was in the Seamus office a couple months ago, I got a sneak peek of the shoes – and have just been waiting for them to drop ever since.
Here are a couple notes from the press release:
“The shoe, which boasts a distinctive Pacific Northwest vibe, is a must have for sneaker heads and golf gear enthusiasts who have a love of unique design. The shoe’s urban, outdoor style and playful mix of materials and patterns is trademark style of Seamus Golf. The shoe was inspired by a custom golf bag made from waxed canvas, Pendleton® wool and bison leather, conceived by Seamus Golf founder Akbar Chisti.”
You can still see that sweet bag that inspired the shoes.
Growing up in Oregon for most of my life, and living in Portland for the last 13 years, it’s safe to say I have an affinity for the PNW.
So to see a collab between three of the most iconic PNW companies which integrates their love for the region?
That’s something pretty special.
And to make it even better, Seamus is also releasing a collection of additional products to go along with the shoes. Considering their Pendleton products are some of my favorites of theirs, I have no doubt these will be killer.
You’ll be able to buy the shoe later this week on December 12th at 7am PST on both the Seamus Golf website as well as Nike.com.
The shoe will retail for $200.
