Rory McIlroy Wearing Nike Golf - 2016 Looks
Posted at February 6, 2016
We've already been seeing Rory McIlroy wearing the new Nike golf collection on tour and here we take a look at some his key outfits so far and explore what other looks we can expect to see in 2016.
Rory McIlroy Wearing Nike 2016
Often one of Rory McIlroy's favourite places to play, the European Tour's "desert swing" is coming to a close this weekend with the completion of the Dubai Desert Classic. It's been a mixed bag for Rory so far this season - it was a strong T3 finish at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship whilst his success at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic has been muted thanks to a torrid time on the front nine holes (+3 after three rounds compared to -11 for his back nine). We've had a small glimpse of what he's capable of on the golf course this year; we've also had a small glimpse of what Nike golf clothing he's set to wear throughout this season, too.
What Is Rory McIlroy Wearing on Tour?
In Abu Dhabi - it was a colour called "University Red" which stood out most for us. This sharp red forms the base of Nike's first flow of the season and combines extremely well with the neutral tones of white, grey and black which are featured throughout many of the new styles for 2016.
These colour "flows" are a novel idea from Nike which allows the brand to segment their extensive range into more manageable, co-ordinated capsules throughout the season and really proved a successful strategy last season. The same Nike polo shirts, knitwear and trousers will soon be available within these flows - of which there are six per year; fresh approach and forward thinking as ever from Nike.
And what shoes is Rory McIlroy wearing? They're eye catching and somewhat controversial and they're called the Lunar Control 4 golf shoes by Nike. We featured them in an earlier eMAG article; keep an eye out for a full performance review coming soon.
The next Nike flow for 2016 will introduce shades of blue, navy and green and will become available in the same key styles such as the Fly Framing Commander shirt, the Fly Framing Block golf shirt and the Icon Colour Block polo.
