WASHINGTON — Jordan Spieth, the 2015 PGA Tour Player of the Year, has helped Under Armour design a golf shoe that debuts March 1.
Spieth will embark on a global tour with Under Armour, starting in Tokyo, to promote the shoe before its debut.
“I couldn’t be more excited to officially unveil my first signature shoe, the Spieth One, with Under Armour,” Spieth said.
“I worked closely with the Under Armour footwear team to design an innovative shoe that is grounded in the details of my game.”
Baltimore-based Under Armour said the shoe is engineered “down to a science.” Among features, rotational resistance traction, which prevents the rotation of the foot during the swing.
The 23-year-old’s four-city tour to promote the shoe includes Tokyo, Seoul, Los Angeles and Mexico City.
Spieth joins a roster of more than 50 professional athletes who now have endorsement deals with Under Armour.
A pair of Spieth One golf shoes will retail for $200.
