Doing what I do for Golf Monthly I have been lucky enough to build a pretty reasonable golf shoe collection. I think I am up to around 19 pairs right now ranging from Rory McIlroy‘s Nike Air Victory Tour 3‘s, to the G/FORE Gallivanters. But I recently got sent a pair that might just go right to the top of the list, the Air Jordan 1 Low G shoes. 

Of course I had seen Tony Finau where this model of shoe out on Tour but this new finish really caught my eye when I saw it flying around on social media. It has the grey, suede elements which I really like and the green sections make it almost a Masters, Augusta National-themed homage.

The adjustments on the outsole include a forefoot pivot circle, which offers extra traction on one of the most vital areas of the foot. I found no problems with my grip in dry and damp conditions. I certainly wouldn’t wear these shoes in properly wet conditions, but the grip in damp morning conditions was impressive. 

For sure, these shoes aren’t anywhere near as supportive as performance spikeless golf shoes like the Payntr X 003 F or the FootJoy Pro SL, but that’s not what they’re designed to do. Despite the lack of medial support throughout the swing, I was impressed with how comfortable they were to walk in. Ultimately, these shoes exist to look really good on – and off – the golf course with the comfort I had while walking was an added…
