The Shoe Fits
A collection of new, high-performance golf shoes that will not only make your walk more comfortable, but help you perform better too.
Adidas TOUR 360 3.0
Adidas's oh-so-familiar three-stripe
design (red) doubles as a molded
upper in the mid foot. This feature,
known as 360WRAP, creates a snug fit
across the top of your feet. A second
molded three-stripe design (this one
in the rear) locks your heel in place to
prevent slippage. The "3D FitFoam"
sock liner provides superb cushioning.

Callaway Hyperbolic X
Small TPU ridges (blue) around the sole's
perimeter promote extra gripping power.
The lining has a moisture-management
system to regulate temperature so feet
stay cool and dry. A dual-density insole
springy in forefoot, shock absorbent in
heellimits foot fatigue. You can even
remove a pad beneath the insole for
additional wiggle room (a wider fit).

Ecco Ultra Performance
This one-piece shoe is constructed with
lightweight polyurethane that bonds the
outsole, midsole and leather upper, a
process that allows the shoe to wrap
around your feet. The outsole combines
areas designed for maximum flex
with firmer areas meant for serious
traction. A carbon-fiber shank further
stabilizes the rear and forefoot.

The outsole system flexes naturally
as you walk or swing. A "Powerpod"
(blue triangle) provides additional arch
support. Nine cleats per shoearranged
asymmetricallylet you transfer
weight without slipping. Cleats have
an extra spike in the center that's
said to contribute to 25 percent more
traction than previous models.

The SYNR-G is proof that a golf shoe
can be more than the sum of its parts.
The large mid-foot support (made of a
perforated aluminum alloy) links the
wide, flared heel with the forefoot to
create an ultra-stable base. "Memory
foam" in the tongue and collar mold to
the feet for a custom-like fit. Added heel
support contributes to the secure feel.

Nike Zoom Elite II
The webbing along the side (brown
lines) is fashion-forward and functional.
The TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane)
frame provides lateral support so your
feet stay in place, while the "Zoom Air"
unit provides extra shock absorption
in the heel. The flexible channel (white)
on the sole is supposed to help
feet remain grounded longer.
