Nike Hand-Apply 6,110 Swarovski Crystals To Blazers
It's a nice time to be on Team Nike. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Soldheim Cup golf tournament, the Swoosh have treated their golfers to a gift traditionally saved for 15-year wedding anniversaries: crystal. However, Nike's offering is much cooler than the champagne glasses that most couples receive. Instead, they've covered players' preferred golf shoes in Swarovski's radiant Aurora Borealis crystals.
Golfer Michelle Wie's Blazers are dripping in Swarovski, with the jewels covering the entire upper of the shoe. According to Nike, there's approximately 6,110 Swarovski crystals on this Blazer, and each crystal has been applied by hand. Michele's nickname, 'Wiezy', is also emblazoned in crystals on the heel of the shoe (and, with these shoes, her precious stone collection must certainly rival that of the OG Weezy). Unfortunately, the sparkly shoes don't seem to work as a good luck charm, with Wie ultimately losing the Soldheim Cup to Caroline Masson.

As these shoes are player exclusives, there's sadly no chance for those outside the professional golfing circuit to get their hands on a pair. However, if you want to add that Swarovski spring to your step, check out the crystal-covered Air Max 97s dropping on September 7.
