I’ve written in other posts about the expanding pathway toward comfortable, sneakerish golf shoes. Golf is a battle against the self and the elements; why should its combatants be stuck wearing uncomfortable wingtips that remind us of uncomfortable places? I’m all for the options available today. The Nike Lunar Ascend presents an athletic appearance and provides a comfortable wear.

If you like the feel of a light, athletic shoe on your feet, one that takes you fairways and fairways, yet allows you to migrate from course to restaurant to parking lot, the Lunar Ascend should be a candidate for consideration. Be sure to get a good fit, as this shoe runs a bit snugger than sizing suggests.
