When I debuted these pink high top golf shoes at the 2015 Evian Masters, they made a huge statement not only because of it’s super bright color, but because it was golf’s first high top shoe. But I think it was also the combination of my crazy rainbow hair with it that caused quite a stir!

I got so many questions that week like: “Aren’t they heavy?” ” How do you swing in them?” And I laugh because I can’t imagine myself not ever playing in high tops. I was struggling with some pretty bad ankle injuries in 2015 and these shoes made a big impact in my recovery. Due to the high top nature of the shoe, it didn’t allow my left ankle to roll over as badly, therefore helping my ankle to be more stable.

Also, because this shoe was inspired by the Basketball blazers, they were designed to be very light. They changed the construction of the shoe to make the shoe more breathable and “golf-able”. They made the tongue out of mesh so increase breathibility, inserted elastic behind the shoe to create room for the foot to bend when you enter your follow through, and they inserted the same spike grid on the bottom of the shoe as others to help your grip.

The Pink and Camouflage special edition high tops are extremely special to me because Nike Golf made them as a tribute to my 2014 US Womens Open win. The colors pink and campuflage were taken from the kinisio tape that I wore all week and if you look on the inside of the shoe, it has my score printed on the inside of the tongue.

These Leopard High Tops were my favorite shoe this whole year! They were covered in faux leopard fur, had gold glitter bottoms and said “Wiezy” in the back. This was the first pair that Nike had released a special edition high top golf shoe to the public and it was so crazy to find out that these bad boys sold out in LESS THAN 30 MINUTES!!
