Known for infusing black culture into a historically white sport, Eastside Golf has connected with the next generation of golfers through strategically curated collections with Jordan Brand. Now, Eastside Golf is back with its second comprehensive collection, paying homage to Charles Sifford, the first black man to earn a PGA Tour Pro Card in 1961.
The golf-ready Air Jordan 6 Low, replete with spikes along its tread, presents a palette of white, black, and green reminiscent of the PGA Tour. The shoe's nubuck underlays are dressed in a deep black, while the surrounding tumbled leather construction showcases a contrasting white. Echoing the lush greens of the golf course, the speckled midsole, tread, and lace pocket sporting the brand's swingman logo are tinged in shades of green. Golden metallic accents lend a touch of luxury, prominently displayed on the branded lace toggles and the heel's embroidered Jumpman insignia. The translucent tread rounds off the design, etched with the inscriptions "1961" and "CHANGE" to encapsulate the significance of that watershed year.
Complementing the Air Jordan 6 Low is the matching Jordan ADG 4, creating a harmonious set that acknowledges the legacy of Charles Sifford. Also rumored to complete this collection is the Air Jordan 1 High Golf, a fitting addition to this homage to golfing history.
