Oakley Golf goes lighter and lower with its two new shoes

Published

on

For those golfers looking to reduce the burden on their feet during a round of golf, Oakley Golf may have the answer.

Its newest tech series shoe, the Cipher 2, weighs only 9.2 ounces — 1.4 ounces lighter than Adidas’ new adizero shoes, which were released earlier this month.

To help get the weight down, Oakley moved away from the traditional cleat design and instead used NanoSpikes on the bottom of the shoe. These small, high-grade pieces of metal were tested at USC’s biokinesiolgy institute and were found to last as long, or longer, than other spikes on the market.

For the golfer who wants a more traditional shoe, there’s the new Oakley Carbon Pro. Oakley worked with Softspikes to include its Performance Insert System (PINS) to the bottom of the cleats to help make the spikes lower and lighter.

The inside of the Carbon Pro contains Octostick, a silicon additive that will help prevent the foot from moving around within the shoe.

“We wanted to create a higher-end, durable shoe,” said Justin Cobb, Oakley channel sales manager for apparel, footwear and accessories. “You have your Cypher, which is a real technical product and you also have your (Tour) series product which is going to be really durable and going to take a lot of rounds of golf.”

The lower-to-the-ground cleats will help give golfers more stability while swinging. Get more information about the shoes by watching the video below:

The Cypher 2 will sell for $150 while the Carbon Pro retails for $200. Both shoes come in five different color schemes. Check out the photos of the shoe in the gallery below:

What’s the optimal putter color? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing putter colors. WRXer ‘BankBank’ has come to the conclusion that he putts far better with a black putter than any other color and is interested in hearing the color preference of fellow members.

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.

  • sevenfourate: “I love the long-term ease of maintenance of a plain Stainless finish. But like do also love the contrast a black putter head gives. But having a marked/chipped up black finish would drive me nuts. I was at the BMW PGA at Wentworth last week. And saw a surprising number of players using the Red Odyssey putters. Which surprised me as they look quite ‘busy’ at address IMO……”
  • caniac6: “I am using a stainless Cameron, and I like it, but it’s just a bit too shiny. I really prefer a stainless with a finish like the old stainless Pings.”
  • GHIN and Juice: “I love an oil can finish, but I also hate getting rust marks on the head, so I’ll putt with an oil can finish until I can’t stand the rust anymore, and then I’ll change it to a pro platinum/ stainless look.”
  • Fairway14: “My preference is a carbon steel head with a shiny black oxide finish.”
  • iknowbagu: “Color never really mattered to me until I got my current putter. White with a black sightline that works in perfect symmetry with my white ball with a black line just has me really confident with my alignment when I’m over the ball.”
