What we think:

 

The Nike FI Premiere carries the innovative stylish tradition of the FI series. Its unique look coupled with a hybrid traction system definitely makes it stand out. It's reasonably priced, and can be enjoyed in most weather conditions. We're quite impressed with what Nike has done here, and recommend the FI Premiere for those who like trainer-style golf shoes that provide support as well. Our only complaint is that although we appreciate the response collar for it's extra support, it does make the shoe quite difficult to put on.
