What we say:

 

The ASICS GEL-KAYANO ACE BOA golf shoe definitely impressed us. We were hoping it would be similar to the other GEL-ACE models, and were not disappointed. This GEL-KAYANO ACE BOA edition features everything the original GEL-KAYANO ACE has, but with an added BOA fastening system that allows for micro-adjustments and thus a more precision fit. Whether or not this is worth the extra $20 is highly subjective. Without a doubt, the standout feature of the GEL-KAYANO ACE BOA is its comfort. The cushioning is in all the right places, delivering one heck of a walking experience. It provides the perfect balance of shock absorption and rebound, which can save quite a bit of energy during a round. Then there is the support and traction. We love how the TPU heel cradle keeps your foot locked in, which feels especially great during the swing. The spikeless outsole provides all the grip you'd ever need, while still feeling great when walking. Due to its breathable nature and decent waterproofing, the GEL-KAYANO ACE BOA is a great golf shoe for year-round play. We recommend this spikeless ASICS golf shoe for those who place an emphasis on top-of-the-line comfort and support.
