If you want a pair of these Scottish-accented Tour Premiere PE spikes, you’ll have to act fast. Nike is only releasing a limited quantity of them, available to golfers in North America and Europe at nike.com on Thursday, July 19, the first day of the 2018 British Open. The new kicks pay homage to this week’s Open Championship in more ways than one. They feature a tartan plaid print that brings to mind the iconic kilts traditionally worn in Scotland, the birthplace of the Open and golf itself. In addition, the new shoes take their name from the venue playing host to the third major of the year, Carnoustie Golf Links. The course, which plays a central role in the Open rotation, is nicknamed “Car-nasty” for its infamous difficulty. – TO
