Jason Day gets roasted over Open shoe choice

Jason Day shoes

The internet had a field day with Jason Day’s choice in shoes at the Open Championship on Thursday.

It didn’t take long for eagle-eyed viewers to notice the former World No 1 was sporting some pretty flashy footwear for the opening round at Royal Birkdale.

Day was wearing Nike’s new hightop golf shoe, and it certainly was not greeted with universal approval.

In fact, people hated them.

At least the shoes didn’t appear to put Day’s off his game. The Australian opened with a solid one-under-par 69 to put himself in contention for a second major title.
