The cleats are the most popular with golfers for an obvious reason – they provide a stable grip on otherwise slippery nature. In a groundbreaking design, however, they have created spikeless shoes that are apparently just as effective as their counterpart. And with his most recent move, Spieth has proven its capabilities.

Jordan Spieth is finally switching to shoes without spikes

Spieth wore the “Under Armor Spieth 5 SL E golf shoes” for a large part of the season. He was also seen alternately between the two. According to ‘Spieth Legion’ on Twitter, however, the 12-time PGA Tour winner has officially made the switch.

Additionally, they revealed that it is not certain whether the next iteration, Spieth 6, will have Spieth versions or not. This is an important step in the development of spikeless shoes as spiked shoes are widely considered to be superior to the others.
