REVIEW: New Balance Fresh Foam PaceSL w/BOA
The New Balance Fresh Foam PaceSL w/BOA has my favorite shoe feature: BOA. There is nothing better than the precise fit of BOA lacing system. The twist of a dial and you can get the shoes locked in perfectly. I really like how this version is on the side of the shoe and pulls down the whole “tongue” area of the shoe for snug lock tight fit. They pop up for a quick and complete release of tension and then click down and dial to the exact fit you design. They don’t loosen up or come untied like traditional laces. They almost impossible to break. The 3 pressure points work well for a precise fit for different foot shapes.
The New Balance Fresh Foam PaceSL w/BOA have the same outsole as the LinksSL model which is a soft rubber sole with various nubs which are great to walk on for hard surfaces and grip well on all turf types. The sole offers great flexibility for every step too which creates a comfortable walk. The outsole is designed with a color pattern that isn’t just for looks, but actually lines up with the pressure points while walking and swinging.
The New Balance Fresh Foam PaceSL w/BOA are right out of the box ready to go to the course. They have a blend of knit material and synthetic waterproof materials for a nice look, but maximum flexibility. They even put a couple notches at the flex points which are well thought out. While they don’t have a “tongue” exactly as many shoes do, they are a stretch material complete across the upper part of the foot, the BOA does tighten that as desired with a full midfoot wrap. The Cush+ insole also adds to the walking comfort with additional cushion underfoot on each step.
The New Balance Fresh Foam PaceSL w/BOA have a combination that will appeal to many golfers. They offer excellent comfort, flexibility, stability, grip and BOA. That precise feel with BOA paired with the new Fresh Foam stability design makes for a stable shoe that can be worn on or off the course. I like the combination of features in these shoes which balance out the needs between soft, comfort, waterproof, stability, traction and BOA.
