Oakley have launched two new shoes for 2013 with the technically advanced Carbon Pro and the lightweight Cipher 2.

The Carbon Pro is designed to withstand the rigors that elite level players place on their equipment. It features a Dynamic Motion Control System that creates a stable environment for you to minimise your loss of power and transfer all of your energy into your swing.

It also has a custom insole that acts like memory foam for the ultimate comfort, while a Pins Cleat System brings you lower to the ground for more stability. Oakley's Coreflex technology provides maximum flexibility in the outsole of the Carbon Pro and their Octostick material minimises foot movement to reduce wasted energy. 

Oakley's second shoe for 2013 follows on from the success of the original Cipher, with the new Cipher 2 remaining the lightest shoe in golf at only 260g.

Using a one-piece synthetic upper skin has allowed Oakley to achieve a sleeker, waterproof, more technically advanced golf shoe without having to sacrifice the playing environment. 

The Cipher 2 continues to utilise NanoSpike technology, with an outsole platform that ensures continuous grip throughout the swing and NanoSpike pads that eliminate the need for over-chunky spikes. 

RRPs: £165 (Carbon Pro) and £140 (Cipher 2)
