What we say...
Johnny: I’m the kind of golfer who has a pair of shoes for summer and a different pair for winter; I look for different attributes for each season. So it’s quite difficult to choose an overall winner across summer and winter. As a result, although I don’t think the Nikes are the best winter shoe on test, taking everything into consideration they are the first pair I would buy ahead of all the others I tried. This is mainly because of the sheer comfort and the modern styling.
The leather is extremely soft and supple but still wears extremely well and the grip is very good, even in the wet. They didn’t keep my feet as dry as some of the others so I wouldn’t wear them in very wet conditions but they’d be my first choice for a sportier summer shoe – and I’d have a darker, more substantial pair for winter.
Christopher Alexander 24 HCP – Prioritises comfort and value when buying shoes.
Johnny Stanco – 14 HCP – Style and performance are two important criteria.
Colin Blair – 14 HCP – This keen player needs durability and performance.
Chris: Chris liked the looks though he felt they were perhaps styled for the younger generation and he felt the quality was high. On the course he felt they were a little on the wide side for him and perhaps didn’t fit him as snugly as some. However, he said they still offered a stable platform and good grip although he found the thinner sole slightly uncomfortable at times.
Johnny: The soft leather really appealed to Johnny, a fan of the stylish and sporty looks. He felt these would be a better summer shoe than a winter shoe because they are very light, but overall he said that if he was to spend money on a golf shoe then he’d probably go for the Nike’s for all-round style and performance. He also said he’d be interested to see how they performed in the coming months in wetter, colder weather with the soft leather.
Colin: Colin admitted he was looking forward to using these shoes but said they were a bit of a let down because they were surprisingly uncomfortable for him to walk in and he didn’t feel they provided the same level of stability or traction as some of the other shoes on test. He didn’t think the styling stood out, although he didn’t dislike the look of the shoes. He said he would be interested to see how the shoes perform in wetter conditions because he was worried about grip during the winter months.

These have to be the most comfortable pair of golf shoes I have ever owned. I have worn them for a few rounds now and my feet have never felt so fresh when I get to the end of a round. They have also provided me with much greater traction, and although it sounds silly, I feel the have given me more confidence around the course.
