In the never-ending quest to ratchet up the performance of its golf shoes, just as it does with its clubs, Callaway Golf this month is introducing a new line of footwear for men and women. The top of the line is now the RAZR, a name given to Callaway's most-advanced line of clubs starting last year.

The RAZR shoes feature a temperature regulating system, comfort insoles for a full day on the course, and a new proprietary spike design, PINS, which the company says is designed to decrease spike pressure on the player's foot. The shoes have a modern saddle-shoe look, with perforated uppers and the familiar metallic "V" detail on the sides. The RAZR shoes cost $184.99 and go on sale Oct. 14.

Callaway also has developed its own version of the new street-style golf shoe, the Del Mar, with a more casual, board-sport look, $129.99, available Dec. 1.

For women, Callaway has two high-performance shoes: the Hyperbolic, a fully loaded, lightweight shoe with molded inserts ($159.99); and the Solaire, described as a versatile and lightweight shoe, with all-mesh uppers for ventilation ($69.99).

In a more stylish vein for women, Callaway is back with the KoKo, a short-vamp women's loafer shoe, two-tone with a buckled kiltie — like a tassel or slashed tongue across the instep ($119.99). It's quite a snappy looking slip on, like a men's evening shoe or opera pump, dressy but with performance features (PINS spikes, Orthlite comfort insoles).

Why can't we men get something like that?
