What we say:

 

As we've come to expect from Royal Albartross, this model, The Driver, is extremely high-end. It caters to the more affluent demographic who demand high quality, fashionable golf shoes. This particular Royal Albartross golf shoe may not perform spectacularly on the course, but it will certainly turn heads in the clubhouse. Having said that, The Driver by no means is a dud on the golf course. It is extremely comfortable and thus is a great option for walking 18 holes and beyond. The spikeless traction system contributes to this ease of walking, while still gripping quite well during the swing. Perhaps our favorite aspect of The Driver is its versatility. Its high-end, casual aesthetics made this shoe fit in anywhere from work to the mall to the course. Keep in mind that although The Driver is water-resistant, it won't hold up in really wet conditions. Due to its high-end nature, the Royal Albartross Driver isn't cheap, and is thus recommended for those who don't mind paying a pretty penny for quality, style and comfort.
