What we say:

 

The Johnston & Murphy XC4 H1-Luxe Hybrid is such a cool hybrid golf shoe. It's literally a combination of all different types/styles. This is why we had trouble designating a specific category for it, but settled on "performance". Let's just start by saying this is one of the best golf shoes out there. First of all, it looks really cool and classy. As we already mentioned, its hybrid style allows it to be worn on and off the course, and the traction system feels great for walking on all surfaces. What's very impressive is that this same traction system transitions beautifully to the course, gripping in all the right places during the swing. The midsole and removable footbed deliver amazing cushioning, while offering pretty darn good support as well. It's not easy choosing our favorite thing about the the XC4 H1-Luxe Hybrid, but right up there is its amazing combination of breathability and waterproofing. Innovative technology by KulKote has made this golf shoe perfect for year-round play in all types of weather. We recommend the Johnston and Murphy XC4 H1-Luxe Hybrid for the classy golfer in need of versatile performance and comfort.
