What we say:
Aside from some aesthetic tweaks, the New Balance Striker v3 is pretty much the same as the Striker v2, which in turn is almost the same as the original Striker. We like that NB has stuck close to the script and isn't afraid to continue what isn't broken. We don't think the NB Striker v3 particularly stands out in terms of style, but true to NB standards, it is very comfortable. Throw decent breathability and top-notch waterproofing into the mix, and you have a durable, year-round golf shoe. The traction system works well, with each of the 7 spikes surrounded by a type of traction pod, which features permanent lubs/nubs. We were also quite impressed with the support offered in the upper. It feels really stable during the swing without sacrificing flexibility. Perhaps the best thing about the NB Striker v3 is that we can recommend it for all types of golfers, from beginners to pros.
