I find it surprising how some people donít realise how important a good pair of golf shoes are. We all want to look good and fashion has always played a big part in golf, looking and feeling good helps a playerís confidence, which in turn helps you feel comfortable over the ball.
But your feet and how they interact with the ground are the foundation to your golf swing. A pair of shoes that slip at the wrong time can have devastating implications at impact and the reverse is true. A solid base can help you produce a powerful swing, helping you gain consistency and added distance.
One of the biggest things when purchasing golf shoes is how comfortable they are and are they waterproof. The Puma TitanTour Ignite has a two-year waterproof guarantee and with their Ignite Foam technology that gives a golfer cushioning and stability, which is then in cased in their thermoplastic polyurethane frame, that is lightweight and flexible, the Puma TitanTour Ignite gives you everything you could want in a golf shoe.
TitanTour Ignite power and stability comes from a combination of their Duoflex technology that combines hard and soft materials that not only support your feet but let them move in a natural flexible way. This works with the innovative construction of the outer sole that gives you a solid stance on any surface, lie or angle.
The shoe is topped off with a full-grain leather upper, textile lining and heavy gauge thread.
Obviously the first thing you will notice is the design and quality of the shoe as you take it out of the box and the Puma TitanTour Ignites certainly look good and I loved the colour combination Ė well blue is my favourite colour.
I havenít worn them in the wet yet, but having played with them in Morocco, at the Belfry and in Surrey I have certainly played with them on a variety of surfaces. I loved the way they anchored my feet and they certainly performed well when trying to get an extra few yards on my drives at the Belfry.
One of the biggest tests I put shoes through on these reviews is the number of course and holes I play on successive days, but I can say after playing several days in succession my feet never ached or felt tired in any way.
On the style front they look great, which I always feel is important. If you are looking for a new pair of golf shoes this summer that will work for you come the winter month, I would recommend you take a look at the Puma TitanTour Ignite golf shoe.
