What we say:

 

Our first reaction to the Nike React Vapor 2 was "WOW". We'll sum up our opinion by saying it's our new favorite Nike golf shoe. Now there are a lot of really awesome Nike golf shoes out there, so this is definitely saying something. We're not sure where to begin because we love everything about the shoe. First of all it looks really cool, and comes in a variety of color combos. Aesthetics aside, the React Vapor 2 is very, very comfortable. The React cushioning technology has finally been implemented in Nike's golf shoes, and we couldn't be happier. As far as traction goes, its combo of 7 spikes with permanent traction ridges keeps you grounded in all weather conditions. This brings us to our next point, which is that the React Vapor 2 is great for year-round play. It's not the most breathable golf shoe out there, but for sythetic leather, it's quite breathable and definitely wearable in hot conditions. We recommend the React Vapor 2 for advanced golfers in need of very high-end performance and comfort.
