REVIEW: New Balance Minimus SL Golf Shoe
The New Balance Minimus Spikeless golf shoes have a running shoe like traction numbs on the sole. The sole has numerous flex points for a constant connection and grip. The short numbs are soft so these shoes are really comfortable walking on any surface. I wore them many days in a row off the course and really liked them. There was no weird slipping or strange feelings walking around the office, at the store or anywhere in between. On the course the grip really well with the flexible outsole and numbs. Sure traditional spikes offer supreme grip, I didn’t have any slippage while wearing these.
New Balance uses things like REVlite foam and FantomFit to create the Minimus design. They are lightweight, flexible and very comfortable. Right out of the box I took them to the course and was impressed by how “not-new” they felt. I liked that they didn’t need any break-in time nor did my foot need to adjust to their fit. I wore them to the course, all 18 holes and the rest of the day. New Balance shoes are similar in size to most popular brands so my typical size 9.5 M fit perfectly in these shoes too.
This is my first pair of New Balance shoes and I am impressed. The Minimus SL shoe offers many things a golf will love; spikeless outsole that has great grip and flex, great padding, and cool styling. They offer these in some great colors and styles. They aren’t your traditional saddle shoe, they are so much better with their out of the box comfort and Minimus drop for a more natural walk and feel on the course, yet with Maximus comfort.
