Sway too much during your swing? The PivotPro ($89) can help you stop. Simply clamp your foot into its wedge-like brace (much like a ski boot) and make a swing without bumping into its affixed aluminum rod. It’s designed to help golfers turn their torso against their rear leg and their lead hip toward the target—two ingredients that generate a powerful pivot. Prevents casting and reverse pivots, too. Fits shoe sizes 7 to 14. pivotpro.net

Geox’s new line of footwear, the Protech WPF ($220) was designed specifically for professional players. It’s more stable and flexible, thanks to a torsion system in its TPU, which was applied to the upper in the heel area, and features a technology called Net System, which guarantees breathable comfort in the shoe. geox.com/golf
