Today SOL REPUBLIC and Tiger Woods announced they would be forming a partnership to sync golf with music in some way. This isn’t the first time SOL REPUBLIC has teamed up with a superstar athlete as they did so with household name Michael Phelps. Phelps donned a different pair of their Tracks headphones every time he took a dive into the Olympic waters in the Summer of 2012 and broke numerous records. He went on to donate each one for charity and have his own colorway called Anthems hit shelves months later.
It will be interesting to see how the SOL REPUBLIC / Tiger Woods relationship plays out and what cool products and designs we will see in the near future.
