Under Armour launch 'Spieth One' shoes
Jordan Spieth has launched his first ever signature golf shoe – the Spieth One by Under Armour.
The two-time Major champion embarked on a four-city global tour to launch the shoe visiting Tokyo, Seoul, Los Angeles and Mexico City.
Under Arnour say the Spieth One has been engineered ‘Down to a Science’ – a nod to the concentrated level of detail by which the shoe was designed which mirrors the 23-year-old’s precise approach to his game.
Spieth worked in close collaboration with Under Armour to meticulously craft the shoe that features a number of technical design elements dictated by Jordan and his game.
We’ve seen Rory McIlroy work in a similar way with Nike to create the Lunar Control shoes.

Technical Specifications of the Spieth One:
- Waterproof: The Spieth One has a breathable, waterproof upper which prevents water from entering the shoe, but allows perspiration to escape.
- Rotational Resistance Traction: The Spieth One features what Under Armour are calling Rotational Resistance Traction. They say this prevents the rotation of the foot during the swing from load up to impact.
- One-seam upper: The upper of the Spieth One is composed with a single seam, reducing layers and weight while enhancing the overall fit and feel.
- Dual durometer outsole: The outsole of the Spieth One has a softer forefoot for flexibility, paired with a firm heel for stability and support.
“I couldn’t be more excited to officially unveil my first signature shoe, the Spieth One, with Under Armour,” said Spieth.
“I worked closely with the Under Armour footwear team to design an innovative shoe that is grounded in the details of my game. The opportunity to unveil my signature shoe with the amazing fans here in Tokyo is extremely humbling and an experience I will never forget.”
