McGregor and Mayweather certainly put on a show on their world media tour with both fighters creating a storm of trash talk.

The shoes are part of Day’s $10 million a year deal with Nike and many on the internet thought they looked too much like basketball shoes but Nike has them listed as golf shoes – but for women.

Royal Birkdale has a strict dress code with the course’s website stating:

“Smart attire is essential, golf shoes are to be worn; smart tailored shorts may be worn with knee length socks or short socks; sports shorts and combat/cargo shorts are not permitted.”
