The best new golf shoes 2015
As the golf season approaches, it is time to consider what shoe you will wear in 2015. An increasingly competitive market within the industry, manufacturers are looking to produce the shoe that offers the optimum in terms of style, comfort and stability.
Jack Nicklaus has long maintained that the golf swing begins from the ground up. Your choice of shoe will play a huge part in that.
FootJoy have long been known for their market leading golf shoes, but in the past few years they have really started to innovate using new materials and technology and it appears that in 2015 they have taken this to a new level!
Their 2015 offering - HYPERFLEX is possibly their most innovative golf shoe to date. While it is extremely striking it also packs a punch. FootJoy have created a new material called FlexGrid, this is an exoskeleton that delivers lightweight support and cushioning, marrying the attributes in running shoes with the stability needed by golfers.
FootJoy are offering the HYPERFLEX in a range of colour options and will be available in Navy/Lime, Charcoal/Orange, White/Light Grey/Royal Blue and Black/Silver/Yellow. Additional BOA Lacing options will be offered in White/Light Grey/Royal Blue and Charcoal/Orange

Puma Golf – Titan Tour Golf Shoe
Puma Golf’s flagship release of 2015 is unquestionably the TITANTOUR model. Worn by Rickie Fowler this year on the PGA Tour, this highly stylish shoe will catch the eyes of many fans of Puma’s previously released products.
Building on the success and innovation of the Biofusion, Puma Golf have delved deeper into the realms of science and technology to produce a shoe that is in a sense quite literally out of this world.
Their ‘Outlast Certified Space Technology’ channels a concept originally used by NASA in the production of spacesuits, with a top cloth designed to manage heat and moisture levels inside the shoe.
Flexibility is also a key facet of the new shoe, with an ultra-thin (but strong) frame in place to offer increased freedom of movement without forsaking stability – with Shape Lock memory foam ensuring for a customised fit for each wearer.
Unquestionably cool and scientific in its design, the Titan Tour is destined to be a winner in 2015.

adidas adipower boost Golf Shoe
Adidas have long been a pioneer of innovation and technology in their products – and the adipower boost shoe is no exception.
With the introduction of a boost foam cushioning in the sole of the shoe – Adidas has been able to carry over the qualities from their other sports footwear into golf. Thousands of TPU energy capsules moulded together inside the shoe, which maximises the transfer of energy from the ground to your feet.
In theory, that should ensure two things – increased energy through the hitting area and enhanced comfort with the shoe literally providing the wearer with a spring in their step during a round.
This new range has been released in three models, with the Boost being the middle of the trio in terms of cost.
