Can a golf shoe really give you more distance?
Under Armour says its new shoe stays in contact with the ground longer, giving you extra traction and power.
The Spieth 2 shoe is lighter than the previous model and features new Gore-Tex waterproofing, but the big change is the improvement in traction. Under Armour says that since swing speed and power are generated from the ground up, the longer your feet stay in contact with the turf the better the opportunity to maximise power. The shoe features Rotational Resistance Spikes, which keep the outsole and insole of the foot stable; a Dual Durometer sole, which has a softer forefoot for flexibility and a firmer heel for stability and support; and an integrated lacing system to hold your foot firmly in place.
Sole stability The combination of a new spike design, enhanced sole technology and an integrated lacing system keeps your feet more stable and grounded during the swing.
