Puma evoSPEED Faas Trac Golf Shoe Review

This season has been great for testing out golf shoes. So many companies making high quality golf shoes in so many styles and colors. I haven't done a Puma Golf Shoe Review in awhile so when you get a pair of Usain Bolt inspired Puma Golf Shoes to test out you get a bit giddy.

Puma is calling the cross category collection, evoSPEED (The footwear was developed for running, soccer, cricket, motorsport, handball and of course golf). If you haven't seen the commercial it's worth a look.

I got to test out the evoSPEED Faas Trac Golf Shoes in a variety of  weather conditions (cool, hot, rainy, windy, dry) plus both walking 9/18 holes and carting 18 holes. Here's the highlights:

No Traction Worries
Puma has done a great job with the evoSpeed's outsole, combining both stationary directionally molded S²QuillTec spikes with replaceable S²Quill spikes. The close-to-the-ground design of the evoSpeed combines these two types of spikes and flex grooves in the heal and toe to enhance flexibility and 360 degrees of movement. There's no slipping here while your swinging your driver or using your wedges out of the rough. The combination of the two types of spikes plus the flex grooves leaves you with no worries about traction.

Can You Say Waterproof
No one wants wet feet when there out on the golf course. Puma has Storm Cell (a combination of waterproof materials, membranes, and seam-sealing) built in to these evoSPEED Faas Trac Golf Shoes. The one piece design kept me dry in the wet conditions I experience during my rounds. No wet feet here.

Puma Colors 
Puma is noted for their vibrant color schemes and they didn't disappoint with the evoSpeed's white-limoges-ribbon red colors. The colors radiates from the evoSPEED Faas Trac. Goes great with my one of my favorites golf shirts Puma's Golf Crestable Tech Polo in Tomato Red.


Hands Down Great Comfort
There was no break in period for these golf shoes. Puma uses EverFoam,  a special slow recovery foam construction for an improved fit. Slip your foot in and after the first round it conforms to the natural contours of your foot.

At $169 CDN at Shop Puma Canada these are a great price for what you get in the evoSPEED Faas Trac Golf Shoe. A whole lot of traction, waterproof,  and comfort technology wrapped up into a vibrant Puma color scheme. My pick for shoe of the year.
