Turn Your Feet Into A Launching Pad
January 07, 2010
The SYNR-G ($200, available in January, footjoy.com) uses a thermoplastic-urethane wrap extended up from the outsole in three areas for extra lateral stability.
The Classic GTX ($210, eccogolf.com) adds support inside the shoe with a stabilizing ring of polyurethane beneath the removable insole to help prevent the heel from sliding inside the shoe.
The Tour 360 3.0 ($180, adidas.com) uses molded thermoplastic-urethane external supports in the mid-foot and heel. It also has four heel cleats (twice the standard) and a close-to-the-ground sole profile.
