McIlroy wears the Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 2 golf shoes. We think Rory was first spotted wearing the Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 2 shoe in a practice rounds at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in 2021. Since then he has worn a variety of models, ranging from special editions, to the more traditional colors. Some of the more common colours we see Rory in are the simple all-white and all-black colorways, but we occasionally see him in the White/Lime Green colors too.

The Nike Zoom Victory Tour 2 golf shoes are a spiked golf shoe and Rory mainly wears them in either black or white depending on the outfit he's wearing. The shoe has a full-grain leather upper that is fully waterproof. There's a foam midsole for comfort and energy return and the Zoom Air unit supporting the shoe provides increased stability throughout the swing. These are just one pair in the extensive list of the best Nike golf shoes we see out on Tour.
