What we say:

 

Wow! It's a bit of an understatement to say we are very impressed with the New Balance Fresh Foam LinksPro. We had a hunch that we were going to be impressed, but it has exceeded all expectations. This hybrid of performance and sport styles doesn't have any weaknesses. Let's start with what we love the most about the Fresh Foam LinksPro, which is comfort. The combination of leather and mesh creates a soft, flexible shoe that is not only breathable, but very waterproof as well. This isn't easy to achieve, so we really admire shoes that pull it off. The new Fresh Foam technology keeps the Fresh Foam LinksPro really lightweight, which means it's absolutely perfect for walking the course. Throw a fantastic traction system into the mix, and you have one of the best golf shoes out there. The differently shaped permanent traction lugs surround 7 removable spikes, creating amazing grip in all conditions. Factoring in its affordability, we recommend the New Balance Fresh Foam LinksPro for mid to low handicap golfers who can appreciate it's perfect blend of comfort and performance.
