Cons – Lacking arch support

            Traction isn't durable

 

What we say:

 

The New Balance Minimus SL doesn't stray far from other New Balance golf shoes in terms of looks and performance. It features REVlite midsole technology that provides the same (if not better) comfort of other midsoles while dropping you 4mm closer to the ground, which enhances feel. This of course, is not for everyone. It does take some getting used to, as you will be shorter than with most other golf shoes. Along with comfort and enhanced feel, you get a highly waterproof golf shoe that offers adequate support for a good price. The NDurance outsole, for a spikeless design, is average in our opinion. The Minimus SL is perhaps best suited for mid-level golfers.
