The company line: This lightweight shoe is in contact with the ground as much as possible during the swing. It features full-grain leather uppers, a full-length lightweight cushioning system and a wrap from the mid-foot to the heel for targeted support. Our take: It's a solid golf shoe with as much stability as any model out there. Feels great right out of the box.

At just 8.7 ounces, this is one of the world's lightest golf shoes. It's made of breathable micro-fiber, and its sole has integrated nanospikes—but a much more sophisticated, permanent version of the old sandpaper-like traction from earlier models. The best part of this traction is that you won't slip one iota at the critical point of impact. That stability will let you confidently swing away. We love that.A

Puma has done an especially outstanding job the past two years of bringing to market very comfortable, lightweight and stable golf shoes. This new model may be its finest to date. It's truly like wearing a slipper—but even more comfortable, and with arch support. You'll love them on the course, and maybe even more off of it.

In our opinion, this low-profile shoe is great. Slip it on, and you'll immediately feel the difference. It features state-of-the-art components and construction. What that means to you is it's a lightweight, stable shoe with awesome fit, comfort and performance. A foam collar molds snugly to your ankle to secure it in place. The thin, soft and breathable tongue also conforms to the top of your foot.
