Under Armour launches new Spieth One golf shoes

Published

on

Jordan Spieth, a two-time major champion and undoubtedly one of golf’s biggest stars, made waves in the golf apparel world by sporting Under Armour’s UA Drive One golf shoes in 2015 and 2016. The shoes were often referred to as the “Jordan Spieths,” and received positive reviews here on GolfWRX.

On Tuesday, Under Armour announced that Spieth is starting a world tour to promote a shoe officially made in his namesake, the “Spieth One.” The promotional tour begins in Tokyo, then continues onto Seoul, South Korea, Los Angeles, Calif., and Mexico City. According to the company, Spieth worked closely with the Under Armour footwear team in the development of the shoes.

“I couldn’t be more excited to officially unveil my first signature shoe, the Spieth One, with Under Armour,” Spieth said in a press release. “I worked closely with the Under Armour footwear team to design an innovative shoe that is grounded in the details of my game. The opportunity to unveil my signature shoe with the amazing fans here in Tokyo is extremely humbling and an experience I will never forget.”

Technically speaking, the shoes offer a waterproof upper, what the company calls “Rotational Resistence Traction” to prevent slipping throughout the swing, a one-seam upper that reduces weight and enhances the fit of the shoe and has a “Dual durometer outsole,” which means there’s a softer forefoot for flexibility but a firm heel for stability. Under Armour says the shoes are engineered “down to a science,” comparing the shoes design with how Spieth attacks a golf course: scientifically.

It’s clear from the photos provided by Under Armour that the shoes use a form of BOA’s lace system that does not require golfers to tie their shoes, but rather just twist a knob to find the right fit.

“This is an exciting moment for the Under Armour brand and the UA Golf category,”said Kevin Ross, General Manager, Global Golf, Under Armour. “We’re honored to introduce the Spieth One on the first stop of the 2017 Spieth One Global Tour. With engaging activations, unique cultural experiences and more, we are showcasing Jordan’s love of the game and Under Armour’s commitment to providing world-class product, all while driving the game of golf forward on a global scale.”

The Spieth One golf shoes will be available at retail on March 1 for $200, and a limited-edition version of the shoe will be available today in Japan on the company’s Japanese site.

    Looks like the love child of a UA Shoe and a TM R1.

    Those don’t look to bad in the front but as the eyes wander to the heel those are not pretty shoes. Why is UU not making the logo bit BIGGER. Give me a break.

    $200 for an absolutely hideous pair of shoes? No thanks.

    Totally agree. At this price point the show overall will sit on the shelf. Is Under Armour really joining the “grow the game” campaign at this price point?

    $200 shoes are not “driving the game of golf forward on a global scale.” Good grief.

      I was going to say the same thing about the duct tape???? That’s one ugly shoe. Will on the clearance rack just as fast as the other UA shoes

What GolfWRXers are saying about stronger players using a 7-wood

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the strategy behind playing a 7-wood. WRXer ‘Sabzor’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“Lately I’ve been interested in possibly swapping the hybrid for a 7-wood and wanted to see if there were any stronger players who did the same? Often you hear of it going too high, but I feel that even the 4w is pretty optimal for me.

 My thought process is mainly around having 2 versatile distance woods starting around 250yds down – I figure off the tee if I need more than 250 I’m hitting driver anyway. Just curious with some of the pros we’ve seen lately doing the same thing.”

And our members have been having their say on the subject in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • demeeksDC: “Big fan of the 7-wood. Main thing is to get the right shaft — stiff enough — as they often come with softer shafts. Easy to hit and easy to stop. I have landed many 7-woods on greens that stopped dead.”
  • uglande: “I’ve got a TS2 7 wood with a Ventus Blue 7x shaft, and it’s phenomenal. Nice height but no ballooning. Shaft is important, but so is the clubhead. Brands that are more game-improvement focused have 7-woods with COG that are too low, and you can get high spinny flights. But the Titleist 7-woods (esp. TS2) have not been a problem for me. And obviously, some of the TaylorMade guys are doing well with the SIM 7-wood.”
  • VNutz: “I’ve played the 7w on and off for quite some time, SS is probably around 110 nowadays so a bit behind you. For me, it plays like a 5w and was better than a hybrid for my game as those tend to hook on me. I’ve since taken it out of the bag in favor of the modern more hittable driving irons, but I wouldn’t hesitate to put it back in the bag.”
  • L29: “I love the 4w, 7w combo. Still have the Cally xr16 in both and can’t get them out of the bag. My only issue with the 7w is when there is a significant amount of headwind. I do have a little bit of difficulty flighting it down. This problem, however, is nowhere near bad enough to have me thinking of any kind of change. That 7w lands like a raindrop on the green.”
  • Chazb: “The Callaway heaven wood has been my go-to club for over a year, and it’s been a Scoring difference. I even use it to tee off at times as it has very good distance and direction.The people I play with call it my magic club because it always puts me in a good place on the course.”

Member Baroo – Titleist T100s “Blackout” irons

The theme for today is “reduced glare” and you’re certainly going to get that with this set of Titleist T100s irons. Going from 4-iron through 48 degree, the only thing more stealth than these would be a camo set.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: T100s Blackout

Member Techgolfer61 – Raw Miura CB1008 irons

A little rust means no glare and a very unique look. Considering the price of these Miura’s, don’t expect them to last long on the open market.

Member LeftyCabe – Ping G400 LST

I’m going to call this the LLST (Lefty Low Spin Technology). This driver head is in fantastic shape and ready for a shaft. Did I also mention it’s going for one heck of a price?
