What we say:

 

The Under Armour Spieth 2 BOA, as expected, is very similar to the original Spieth One. Which means it's pretty great. Awesome style and comfort are paired with one of the best traction systems out there, creating a shoe that performs to professional standards. This doesn't come cheap, however, and we feel the price is a bit high. Regardless, the fact of the matter is that the Spieth 2 BOA retained everything good from the Spieth One, and improved. One of these improvements is the support, which is slightly better than in the original. As with the Spieth One, the Spieth 2 BOA is definitely geared towards low handicap golfers. The fact of the matter is that this golf shoe was designed by/for one of the best golfers in the world, Jordan Spieth, and if it's ideal for him, it should just about work for every other golfer on the planet. This BOA edition adds that extra bit of precision fitting for a few extra bucks, which is worth it in our opinion.
