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 GolfWRXers are saying about the best drivers for a beginner

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing drivers for new players to the game. WRXer ‘KWatch’ is looking for a used driver and mentions his preference for TaylorMade, Callaway and Ping – with the latter getting plenty of approval from our members.

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

  • rjdivis: “Most places, i.e. Golf Galaxy, PGATSS, etc…, allow you to hit preowned drivers in store. If there is one nearby, this could be a good way to test them out. Prior gen TM, say Sim or M6, could be a good place to start. Same goes for the prior gen Callaway and Ping. I would likely go with the more forgiving, possibly even Draw based, heads. Sim Max, G400 max or G400 SFT are a few examples.”
  • scooterhd2: “PING K15.”
  • Markrip: “Cobra F7, 8 and 9 are all very forgiving drivers. Tour Edge Exs/Exs 220 are also very forgiving if you’re willing to look at other brands.”
  • Tommyboi95: “Anything Ping!”
