Under Armour HOVR Drive Golf Shoe Review
Review by Golfshake Ambassador Matt Holbrook
This year, Under Armour released its new HOVR Drive golf shoes, which has been created to provide optimum comfort without sacrificing the energy return that helps to deliver power, including energy return and greater traction.
The design is what I now expect from UA - sleek and modern without compromise on comfort. The more summer based looking shoe is also extremely lightweight which is something that I didn't feel from the previous usage of the Spieth 2's.
They feel perfect on, super comfort in both rain and extreme heat - I have been lucky enough to test them in both conditions lately. In wet conditions I felt as though I had great control, and in heat and dry they are super light like a summer shoe. They fit really well, especially as someone who has struggled before due to my wider than average feet. Once they are on the integrated lacing system made them feel super tight but again, without any loss in comfort. The Hovr really does give you the best of both.
The first time I wore them was playing 36 holes in a day - a big no-no with new shoes however, the Hovr didn't disappoint as the breathable material made them feel fresh right to the end. Normally you feel like you can't wait to whip your shoes off after a long day on the course (I didn't take them off for lunch between the two rounds either) but I actually wanted to keep them on for the lengthy drive home!
Apart from all of the above - the other thing I personally LOVE about the Hovr is how easy they are to clean. If like me, you like to keep you equipment and clothing fresh as new then the material is really easy to keep clean and wipe over.
I have been wearing these shoes religiously now for a good few weeks. Played two rounds in a day, played in extreme heat, played in horrible wind and rain and I'm yet to find a downside. Amazing work from the people at Under Armour.
The Bottom Line
Another great pair of golf shoes from Under Armour.
