If you’ve ever wanted to play a round of 18 in your Air Max 90s, you’re in luck as Nike has given the classic runner a makeover with the links in mind. Dubbed the Air Zoom 90 IT, the shoe — which was inspired by Rory McIlroy’s love for the Air Max 90 — echoes the look of the Tinker Hatfield original, but offers streamlined construction while ditching the silhouette’s usual Max Air bubble in favor of encapsulated Zoom cushioning. Finally, a specially designed translucent rubber outsole provides traction on the course. Said McIlroy of the kicks:

I wear Air Max casually off the golf course all the time. Making it into a golf shoe really brings something new to the golf course. Not only is it different and very cool but it also performs well, giving me the comfort, traction and stability that I need.

The black/white colorway of the Air Zoom 90 IT is due out this Friday, May 13 while the white/black colorway will hit retailers June 1.
