Who is it for? The NB Sweeper is created for modern players who still crave for the traction of a spiked shoe, but avoiding the traditional saddle-leather shoe.
Why is it good? This New Balance golf shoe easily connects to golfers because of the following features:
- The waterproof upper ensures of a dry foot no matter the weather and season is.
- Technologies that are injected on the midsole give the utmost comfort, especially for walkers.
- The spiked construction keeps the foot locked in place in a bunker, rough, or fairway.
Easy but grippy. The outsole of the New Balance Sweeper is outfitted with six removable Pulsar cleats (FastTwist 3.0). Aside from gripping the ground to the maximum, these spikes are easily replaceable, which can further extend the lifespan of the shoe.
Hardwearing bottom. Despite the relaxed feel that many appreciate with golf, it entails long-distance walking and aggressive, dynamic swings. The bottom of this shoe takes care of that through a rubber technology called NDurance. It boasts of superior durability, apt for unnatural movements and different surfaces.
Cushioned comfort. Tucked in the middle of the upper and the midsole is a Cush+ insole. What is unique about this is that even though it has ultra-soft properties that cradle the foot to comfort, it doesn't sacrifice stability. An ABZORB midsole keeps the Cush+ company. The combination of both innovations provides maximum benefits for golfers as it helps absorb forceful impacts and adds cushioning compression resistance.
Lightweight midsole. Completing the triad of midsole techs is the REVlite 10mm drop foam. The addition of this injects premium responsiveness on every step and swing and, because of its lightweight qualities, it wouldn't wear the foot down.
A different leather. This version strays far from the traditional golf shoes and the use of the microfiber leather is just one proof to showcase that. Though it is not the conventional material, microfiber leather gives additional durability without sacrificing looks. It is also granted with waterproof protection and a two-year waterproofing warranty, making the shoe suitable for all-year-round wear.
Those familiar with New Balance golf shoes would most likely be familiar with its classic styling and the New Balance Sweeper is no exception. As everything is kept cohesive and sleek, different components make up this shoe. The play of texture and pops of contrasting colors bears similarities to the iconic NB574. The silhouette offers a timeless look that will fashionably last for several years.
