What we say:

 

The Callaway Balboa Vent 2.0 doesn't stray far from the original Balboa Vent. They are the brand's premier summer shoes. Their focus is breathability and comfort, which makes them ideal for walking the course during the hot summer months. It goes without saying that they are definitely a seasonal shoes, and thus won't appeal to those looking for an all around shoe. The Balboa Vent 2.0 has a slightly different upper structure/pattern than the original Balboa Vent, which gives it slightly more support. In general, we're impressed with the upgrade, and 100% recommend this shoe for hot summer play.
