I personally have a pair of StuburtUrban Grip Spikeless golf shoes, which I find very comfortable. It has a remarkable memory characteristic that makes up the soft microfiber uppers. What it does is, it prevents your feet from swelling after an18-hole round of walking, making it really comfortable throughout. I am definite that this will be an utmost relief on feel for all golfers bringing it to its peak performance.
It basically carries a contemporary design. It has a contoured last that resembles the shape of the foot. The soft padded collar and modern styling adds to the athletic character of the shoe. It’s a pair of shoes, not only for golf but can also go with jeans (not on the golf course), with cotton pants or anything casual.
The Stuburt cushion technology is a lightweight EVA midsole and a high-grip rubber outsole to offer maximum comfort and stability. It may not look like it was designed for golf because of its casual appearance and style. But do not be deceived by its looks, it promises to deliver its ultimate performance – comfort and stability.
The Urban Grip Spikeless is available in four colors: black, brown, white and titanium. Sizes available are from 7-12, including half sizes, except 11.5 and 12.5.
For basis of comparison, if you plan to wear your running shoes or basketball shoes on the golf course, it may possibly work in some ways. On the other hand, you may have difficulty in achieving good balance and stability, simply because running shoes have been designed to jog and run with. The heels of the sole are thicker to support the ankles, and the toe-side of the sole becomes thinner. It is not good for golf as it lessens the heel and toe stability.
Basketball shoes, just the same are designed for running, jumping and lateral movements. The balance distribution of the insole is even while the outsole is not designed to grip grass and soil. Therefore, these types of shoes are not designed to promote better balance, gripping wet and dry fairways, and not to resist water.
Stuburt golf shoes are available at the Srixon Golf Shop at CityGolf Driving Range, Doña Julia Vargas Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. For details contact 09279945727.
