What we say:

 

 

As you may have guessed, the adidas Tour360 XT-SL is very similar to the Adidas Tour360 XT. It is essentially the spikeless version of the spiked Tour360 XT. However, they are not identical. Aside from the different traction systems, the Tour360 XT-SL is slightly less waterproof, featuring Climastorm instead of Climaproof technology. The different traction system allows for slightly more flexibility, which is also more comfortable for walking. In fact, these are some of the best golf shoes for walking that you're going to find. Not only is the outsole comfortable for walking, but it boasts amazing traction also. The innovative x-shaped traction lugs pretty much eliminate any chance of slipping in all weather conditions. As with the Tour360 XT, the Tour360 XT-SL is really, really supportive. In provides a locked-in feel in all the right places during the swing, yet doesn't feel overly tight or unnatural. We recommend the Tour360 XT-SL for low handicap golfers in need of something comfortable for walking the course that also provides plenty of grip and support.
