UN­DER AR­MOUR TEMPO TOUR SHOE £160

Golf Monthly - - Rory Mcilroy -

KEY TECH­NOL­OGY A re­mov­able moulded sock liner sup­ports and cra­dles your feet, while a breath­able, full-grain leather up­per and a light­weight wa­ter­proof mem­brane keep them cool and dry. ‘Su­per-charged’ cush­ion­ing is said to re­turn en­ergy as you walk. Fi­nally, a built-in lat­eral TPU wrap stops your heel rolling over as you swing, pro­vid­ing added con­trol.

GM RE­VIEW Looks There can be many com­par­isons drawn be­tween this and the FootJoy D.N.A. model – like the full-grain per­fo­rated leather, the style of laces and the over­all per­for­mance – which is no bad thing as both are ex­cel­lent golf shoes that come in at a sim­i­lar price. Per­for­mance This is a very tech­ni­cal golf shoe de­signed to help golfers get the most from the ground and swing more con­sis­tently. This cen­tres around lock­ing the heel in place to not only stop the foot mov­ing in­side the shoe, but also to po­si­tion the foot cor­rectly. The in­sole en­cour­ages this by hav­ing softer foam in the mid­dle of the heel sec­tion com­pared to the out­side, boost­ing com­fort in the process. These shoes are cer­tainly more to­wards the stable cat­e­gory as there’s not much give from the TPU out­sole un­der­foot, but spe­cial cush­ion­ing pro­vides the sup­port and com­fort you need. Grip is also a key at­tribute, with the spikes con­nect­ing you firmly to the ground to aid power, as­sisted by the nubs be­tween them. Con­sider this The leather is firm ini­tially. It will take a round or two for this to soften suf­fi­ciently.

VER­DICT The Tempo Tour de­liv­ers grip and sta­bil­ity with com­fort in a style that will ap­peal to golfers both young and old.
