What we say:

 

In all honesty, we are a bit disappointed with the Nike Flyknit Elite. Simply put, the overall performance, and particularly, look, of the shoe doesn't justify its hefty price tag. Credit to Nike for pushing boundaries and focusing on innovation again, but this shoe is just too expensive. To be fair, it is quite breathable and has good support, traction and comfort, and certainly performs decently. However, there are plenty of other Nike golf shoes we would recommend before the Flyknit Elite.
