Nike Golf and Tiger Woods have teamed up once more the launch the signature TW '15 golf shoe.

The TW '15 is Nike's first shoe to feature Flyweave technology in the upper.

This, combined with the existing Free-inspired outsole, is designed to give golfers support and flexibility where they need it the most.

Dynamic Flywire is used to create a one-piece Flyweave upper (below) characterised by its support, flexibility and lightweight nature.

Nike's Free-inspired outsole has also been updated (below). It sits 3mm lower than the TW '14 shoe to improve ground feel, while a new outsole-construction process increases flexibility.

In addition, four replacement spikes are employed alongside Integrated Traction in the toe to offer more freedom of movement.

"Nike keeps answering the ball every time I want to push the envelope," said Woods.

"The new Flyweave technology provides even more stability and support for my foot.

"When you pair that with the Free-inspired outsole, I noticed I can push off the ground better and finish my swing with more power."

Flyweave technology first made its appearance in a 2014 Nike basketball shoe, providing stability and a natural range of motion.

"Tiger epitomizes power," said Tobie Hatfield, who has collaborated with Woods on golf shoe design since their first prototype model appeared at the 2011 Bridgestone Invitational.

"His power starts with natural motion, which begins with unleashing the foot from the ground up.

"Flyweave gives you that flexibility coupled with support."

The TW '15 golf shoe is 10% lighter than the previous model.
