What we say:

 

The MIzuno Nexlite Pro golf shoe is great for year-round play. The leather upper keeps your feet a bit cooler than synthetic upper golf shoes, and is guaranteed to keep your feet dry in wet conditions for at least a year. This year-round wearability and the traction system are our two favorite aspects of this Mizuno golf shoe. The combination of strategically placed permanent traction and removable spikes creates a near zero slippage environment. You won't be lacking comfort either in the Nexlite Pro, with the midsole doing its job well. This comfort combined with its light weight makes the Nexlite Pro great for walking the course. Our only minor complaint is that for a pro-level golf shoe, we were hoping for just a bit more lateral support during the swing. Nonetheless, the Nexlite Pro offers pretty darn good performance along with durability and a custom-feeling fit.
