Getting My Kicks
Golf shoes have increasingly gotten oh-so-comfy. Midsole and insole technology, new materials and contoured designs have all played key roles in helping your feet stay comfortable and energized through 18 holes of walking. And the latest designs even cradle my narrow feet the entire way – something I wasn’t able to claim even four or five years ago. Two new models I’ve tried may work wonders for your feet.
The other new shoe I’ve been wearing is FootJoy’s deceptively lightweight D.N.A. Helix ($210), featuring a “TourSpec Stretch” tongue that shapes to your foot while providing breathability. Its foam collar also molds to the ankle for extra support. Plus the leather upper is supple, durable and completely waterproof. Its refreshed outsole adds even more stability during your swing. And the removable insole is so comfortable that I’ve actually borrowed it to use in some of my street shoes on non-golf days.
