Golf: pushing the boundaries of comfort and performance

by | Aug 22, 2021 | Golf Shoes

UNDER Armor’s commitment and dedication to data-driven design began with their first line of golf shoes in 2016 and the latest collection is no different – based on the science of biomechanics.

Through the collaboration of the brand with the world’s leading biomechanical engineer Jean-Jacques Rivet, Under Armor has systematically built on its biomechanically proven traction system.

From rotational drag traction in 2016 to developing horizontal and vertical traction systems in 2019, Under Armor has been an industry leader in traction innovation and the new 2021 range takes full advantage of this cutting-edge technology.

“Under Armor’s Golf HOVR shoes are designed for golfers looking for all possible performance and comfort benefits on the course,” said David Stakel, Senior Director of Compete Footwear at Under Armor.

“They may be spikeless, but these shoes have the same lockdown traction that you expect from our golf shoes. They also use lightweight and responsive UA HOVR cushioning for incredible energy return. “

The shoes feature a breathable microfiber upper for comfortable, lightweight support, while the UA HOVR placement supports the biomechanics of the golf swing with soft but responsive cushioning underfoot.

The Compression Mesh Energy Web contains and shapes the UA HOVR foam to return the energy you put in, and the UA Rotational Resistance outsole provides lightweight traction.

The antimicrobial Ortholite X40 sockliner provides unmatched comfort and breathability underfoot, and the spikeless outsole provides a lighter, more flexible feel without compromising traction.

A pair of the Under Armor 2021 range comes with a suggested retail price of RM529.
