What we say:

 

The Under Armour HOVR Show SL GORE-TEX, much as we expected, delivers the goods. It's not the best golf shoe in the UA lineup, but it's a solid, mid-range shoe that will get you through any type of weather condition relatively unscathed (physically unscathed that is, there's no guarantees mentally, for it won't stop errant shots unfortuantely). While it is a great year-round golf shoe, the HOVR Show SL GORE-TEX does particularly well in wet conditions. Its spikeless outsole grips really well even in the rain, yet is flexible and comfortable for walking as well. The HOVR cushioning technology really does feel reactive, and gives that little extra boost. Our only minor complaint about the UA HOVR Show SL GORE-TEX is that we were hoping for a bit more lateral support. However, all in all, we were impressed by this UA golf shoe and recommend it for those in search of a comfortable year-round golf shoe that is great for walking.
