What we say:

 

We knew we were going to love the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour, but we didn't how much. Well now we know. And it's amazing! First of all, we'd just like to say that this is one of the absolute best all-weather golf shoes out there. It's plenty waterproof, yet still breathes well. Ok, so we may not recommend it for Irish winter rounds, but for warmer than freezing conditions, the Air Zoom Infinity Tour holds up brilliantly. This Nike golf shoe got almost a perfect score from us, so it's hard to know where to go next with this review. It looks awesome, and feels even better than it looks. We will note that the Air Zoom Infinity Tour is better suited for narrow to average-width feet, and will feel tight for those with wide feet. It also runs at least a half size small. While the overall support of this sporty golf shoe isn't perfect, it is still better than average and allows some movement for comfort while limiting unwanted movement during the swing. We recommend the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour for mid to low handicappers who will appreciate the innovative traction system and overall comfort.
