What we say:

 

Kudos to NB for coming up with something totally different! The New Balance 574 Greens is the company's first and only casual style golf shoe. And....it's great! As with most casual golf shoes, this one looks awesome. Aside from its cool style, the 574 Greens has unique color combos that all look really good. It's also very waterproof, which means it can be worn year-round, except perhaps on unusually hot days. The traction system on this golf shoe is fantastic, both in terms of grip and walking comfort. We love how the traction nubs are strategically designed depending on which area of the sole they are located. Our only minor complaint is a lack of support in the upper during the swing. Despite this, we really love the 574 Greens and recommend it to the fashion-conscious looking for a durable, year-round golf shoe that is very affordable.
