What we say:

 

We have to admit that our rating of the PUMA GRIP FUSION Sport is slightly misleading. Although it still scored decently, the "waterproofing" category really brought the rating down from really good to average. Considering the GRIP FUSION Sport is intended to be a summer golf shoe, we shouldn't get caught up in the fact that it's not waterproof. On the flip side, its mesh upper allows for amazing breathability, and when combined with high overall comfort, makes this shoe one of best for walking on hot days. At such an affordable price, the GRIP FUSION Sport gives the opportunity for your average golfer to have a handy second pair of golf shoes specifically for summer. One last aspect of the GRIP FUSION Sport that we love is its versatility. It is really a great shoe for non-golf specific activities as well, which makes it even a greater value.
