What we say:

 

The ASICS GEL-COURSE Glide is very similar to the GEL-COURSE Duo Boa. Which is good because both of these shoes are great! We have to start off by saying that the overall score we've given is a bit misleading because of the low rating in the "waterproof" category. Take away this category and you have one of the top golf shoes out there. This pretty much means that the GEL-COURSE Glide is right up there with the best of the best dry weather/hot climate golf shoes. Although we find its aesthetics to be a bit bulky, we absolutely love how comfortable it is, both in terms of the cushioning and flexibiility, The upper boasts an amazing combination of flexiblity and stability, while the traction system is both great for grip during the swing and walking comfort. We defiinitely recommend the GEL-COURSE Glide for those in warmer, dry climates who need lightweight breathable comfort along with really solid golf-specific performance.
