Review: Nike Dunk NG Golf Shoes
Being that they are based on a basketball shoe, they offer a very athletic fit and function on the course. Sometimes it feels like golf shoes get too narrow and kind of want to roll side to side, almost rolling your ankle. But these have a wider, more stable platform that really feels like they keep your feet solidly attached to the ground. I think they also fit a little wider foot appealing to some golfers that can’t always find a wide enough fit in their golf shoe.
I liked the sole details too, it had the circular patterns of the basketball shoe with golf cleats inserted in the proper positions for maximum grip on the course. While they offer amazing traction, I actually wouldn’t have minded if they had used a spikeless golf sole on these shoes. I like the looks and comfort of them so much, I honestly could wear them all the time. On my casual days I often wear a basketball style shoe anyways and these would have looked great.
These are not Nike’s lightest shoes, but they didn’t feel too heavy either. They felt just like the basketball shoes on the course. A good athletic weight and stability along with that stylish look. I had no problems walking 18 holes right out of the box. After 5 rounds with them, they still are incredibly comfortable to walk in and offer great stability.
I really like the cross-over between sport in these shoes. They are bright and stylish, comfortable and stable; they really are the perfect golf shoe for former/current hoops players. It is March Madness on the greens.
