Ashworth Cardiff Golf Shoes Review
Imagine a golf shoes so comfortable you would actually wear it if you weren’t golfing. A handful of years ago that concept would have been laughed at but with the introduction of the “spikeless” or street golf shoes, it’s happening today.
Call me a traditionalist or a skeptic but I was not going to wear a spikeless golf shoe. My entire golf career I’ve been wearing golf shoes because they provide me with stability and the ability not to slip during my swing. If spikeless worked, why wouldn’t they have come out with it sooner?
It wasn’t until I saw the Ashworth Cardiff golf shoes that I became tempted to give them a test. Having frequently been asked by golfers if spikeless worked, I felt I owed it to everyone to test them out. With so many spikeless shoes on the market, I picked the one I found most appealing (based on looks) and it turns out, comfort.
Does A Spikeless Golf Shoe Work?
I’ll make this easy for you, YES!. My main reason for avoiding this technology was fear of slipping. In the four rounds I tested the Ashworth Cardiff Golf Shoes, two were in wet conditions and I slipped once. I can’t blame the shoes, I was standing in a puddle. That being said, my feet were still dry! When it came to functionality, this shoe offered everything any of my previous golf shoes had offer except I could put them on at home and drive to the course in them.
This brings me to comfort. In speaking with people who wear a spikeless golf shoe, the main reason has been comfort. I can't speak for all spikeless shoes but the Ashworth Cardiff shoes are extremely comfortable. So much so I have worn them in non golf situations including once to a meeting. While testing the shoes, I put them on at home, drove to the course, walked my rounds and wore them home. I felt no discomfort and an urge to get them off my feet. They were very comfortable.Continued on the next page
