SHOE GUIDE 2015
GOLF’S NEW SHOES ARE CHANGING THE LOOK, FEEL AND FIT OF PERFORMANCE
Remember when golf shoes were like combat boots, and you wondered how many rounds it would take to break in a new pair? Had to be at least as far back as 2012. That year, the lightest entry in the Golf Digest Shoe Guide weighed 350 grams. This year, the lightest shoe weighs 25 percent less than that, and the vibe has become demonstrably less uptight. Still, that weight shift isn’t without real athletic performance, neatly combining flexibility with stability. We call it “athletic.”
Spikeless or not, “casual” no longer means noncompetitive.
