What we say:

 

We're huge fans of the ASICS Gel-Course Duo Boa. Ok, so it may not be the coolest looking shoe we've ever laid our eyes on, but it performs really, really well on the course. The overall score we've given the Gel-Course Duo Boa is a bit misleading because the "waterproofing" category brings the score down quite a bit. However, this is a summer golf shoe, and was never intended to be used year-round in wet conditions. This may turn some people off, but for those who prefer having different shoes for different conditions, the Gel-Course Duo Boa is ideal for summer. It offers some of the best support we've ever seen in a sport style golf shoe, both in terms of stability in the upper and grip. We love the spiked traction system, which is still comfortable for walking thanks to the amazing FlyteFoam midsole. We recommend the Gel-Course Duo Boa for those in need of a hot-weather golf shoe that is not only breathable and lightweight, but comfortable and supportive as well.
