What they say:

 

We listened to the feedback you had on the Infinity Tour, refined it and brought it to life on the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT%. We increased the overall volume to give your foot more room, updated the forefoot cushioning to include 2 Zoom Air units for even more energy transfer through your swing, and we added more traction in key areas to help reduce slipping. The result is an incredibly responsive, comfortable shoe that we know you're going to love.

 

Technology:

 

*Breathable textile upper - Hugs and supports your foot

*Gusseted tongue - Makes it easier to take your shoes on and off while also adding extra side-to-side support

*Increased volume - Provides more room for a more comfortable fit

*2 Zoom Air units - Located in the forefoot, they respond to every step. Because they're not fully enclosed, they can move with your foot, allowing for better energy return when you push off through your swing

*React midsole - Lightweight, durable foam that delivers a smooth, responsive ride

*Hybrid traction - 2 spikes on the forefoot and 2 on the heel deliver exceptional grip in a variety of conditions. A secondary, integrated traction pattern throughout the sole increases gripping power

 

What we say:

 

If we didn't have the original Air Zoom Infinity Tour to compare to the Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT%, we would perhaps have a slightly different view of the latter. Don't get us wrong, we are definitely fans of the Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT%, but we just feel like it didn't quite improve on the original Air Zoom Infinity Tour. Having said this, there are definitely aspects of the newer model that have improved, but overall we'd almost prefer the original. The biggest improvement made to the NEXT% is comfort. While the original was comfortable, this one feels a bit roomier and provides some of the best rebound cushioning we've ever experienced. In fact, we'd say this is one of the most comfortable golf shoes period. The aspects of the NEXT% that we were slightly disappointed by were waterproofing and support. While the original Air Zoom Infinity Tour came with a 2 year waterproof warranty, the NEXT% has only a 1 year waterproof warranty. Although the support in the NEXT% is quite solid, we were hoping for just a bit more. If you're in the market for a stylish golf shoe that offers fantastic comfort, we definitely recommend the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT%.
