Golf Tips - Shoes Buyer's Guide 2007

Shoes Buyer's Guide 2007

What you wear on your feet can make a huge difference in not only how comfortable you are, but also how powerful a swing you can make

Traction Action
The soles of today’s top golf shoes have not only superb gripping capabilities, but also integrated webs and channels to whisk away water and debris for a steady grip. Better yet, most golf shoes resemble running shoes from the bottom, replete with a two-pod sole for a more effective weight transfer into the ball.

Adidas Tour 360Adidas Tour360 II
www.adidasgolf.com
($180)
Talk about taking “fresh” to the next level. The new Tour360 II from adidas retains the two-pod technology that made its predecessor popular, albeit this time with an improved sole design and slicker aesthetics. Each Tour360 II shoe features 3D Fit Foam, adiPrene cushioning, a dual-pod, 360 Midfoot Wrap design, and a durable and grip-ready Z-Traxion sole.

Adidas PowerbandAdidas Powerband
www.adidasgolf.com
($140)
Ever swing so hard you come out of your shoes? Well, Adidas has figured out a way to make sure that doesn’t happen again. Their new Powerband shoe is designed specifically for the modern, athletic golfer who likes to bomb it. The Powerband chassis helps stabilize the perimeter of the swing foundation, the highly resilient adiPrene material helps with weight transfer and Adidas’ Gripzone technology keeps your feet secure.

Bite VibeBite Golf Vibe
www.biteshoes.com
($89)
The Vibe from Bite Golf is the ideal shoe for those who want a pair of golf shoes that not only promote good foot health, but also supply a healthy dose of traction. The Vibe levies excellent foot support, a generous toe box and some of the most aggressive, hip styling you’ll ever find in a golf shoe. Don’t miss the lighter, airy Vibe AC version for a great summertime alternative.

Ecco Hydromax Ecco Hydromax
www.eccogolf.com
($180)
Ecco has built a cult following for its incredibly comfortable dress and walking shoes, so it’s no wonder the company’s success in golf is starting to blossom. Shoes like the Hydromax feature Ecco’s awesome shock absorption, dynamic sole design and the innovative glueless sole/upper bond. These babies will never crack at the seams.

Etonic G-SokEtonic G>Sok
www.etonic.com
($110)
For the player who would rather not mess with changing or maintaining spikes, the G>Sok from Etonic is the ideal choice. This shoe features no removable spikes, and the traction of the G>Sok is built right into the shoe in order to provide excellent traction, comfort and durability no matter where you go. (If you want to wear them at the
office, we suggest a black pair.)

FootJoy Golf ReelFitFootJoy Golf ReelFit

($200)
Talk about a departure from the norm! The ReelFit from FootJoy bucks the company’s conservative golf shoe trend and comes equipped with Boa lacing technology that’s controlled via a ReelFit mechanism in the back of the shoe. The result is a custom, secured fit every time. This is the new era...

Shoes Buyer's Guide 2006

Shoes Buyer's Guide 2006

Still wondering what piece of new golf equipment you must have to play your best in ?06? Look no further than the bottom of your feet.

Shoes Buyer's Guide 2006Golf shoes are just as vital as any club in your bag. They stabilize you, help you leverage your body against the turf and, most importantly, provide gripping support and comfort to protect your feet for the duration of the round. Today’s golf footwear features the kind of technology previously reserved for hiking boots, running and walking shoes and even climbing shoes—all wrapped up in one advanced piece of golf equipment.

Speaking of performance, golf shoe manufacturers have taken the golf shoe beyond just comfort and traction, now broadening their focus to a new element in the design of the golf shoe. Weight management, as golf instructors like to call it, is the science of how the body shifts its weight from one foot to another during the swing. More specifically, it’s how the golfer’s center of gravity performs in relation to the toe and heel of each foot, as well as where the golfer’s weight is at impact. The ideal combo is a weight shift that moves to the heel of the rear foot on the backswing toward the toe of the forward foot on the downswing. Golf shoe manufacturers have spent countless hours developing dual-pod soles, variable-flex shoe shanks and multi-density blends of rubber and thermoplastic urethane (TPU) to develop a golf shoe that helps golfers better shift their weight to the correct regions of the foot during the swing.

Wait a minute, so we’re saying that there are golf shoes that actually help you hit the ball farther and more consistently by aiding in a proper weight shift? You bet we are.

Let’s not forget that golf shoes are also more waterproof, more breathable and more durable than previous iterations. Check out a few cool new shoes that have so much technology built in, you’ll wonder why your running shoes aren’t as comfortable as the shoes you wear playing golf. Be prepared for some aggressive styling, too. The classic saddle may soon go the way of the dodo.

Pressure Points Perfected
Golf shoes have come a long way in helping golfers not only better grip the ground, but also aid in shifting weight on the backswing and downswing. For instance, the above illustrates how Hi-Tec’s CDT Power golf shoe places weight in the key heel and ball regions of the foot from the address position well into the finish. Notice how in each diagram, weight pressure is never on or near the center of the foot. This affords not only a better weight shift, but a more stable and balanced action from start to finish. This pod-sole design also cradles the foot arch for better comfort and support.

How To Buy Shoes
“When purchasing golf shoes, a consumer should keep a few things in mind,” says Kenneth Depew, director of golf operations at the Ritz-Carlton Resort in Rose Hall, Jamaica. “Your shoes must be comfortable, so walk around the golf shop when trying ...
