Who should buy the New Balance Minimus Tour
This is an option to consider if you want a high-performance and that:
- is noticeably lighter compared to other models on the market
- creates a sneaker-like sensation
Anything that carries the word 'Minimus' in New Balance's footwear implies a lighter-than-average shoe. It aims to help you feel much lighter on your feet. You might as well want to check out the spikeless version of the NB Minimus.
Minimal FantomFit upper
One of the biggest contributors to this golf shoe's lightness is the brand's proprietary FantomFit upper. As the name implies, it is constructed to give a barely-there sensation.
Golfers have taken note of how minimal it feels without losing its waterproofing characteristics. And as for the latter, this shoe comes with a two-year waterproofing warranty.
Light yet responsive REVlite cushioning
Claimed to have 30% less weight than other cushioning foams, the REVlite also remains surprisingly responsive.
You will also experience a very low-to-the-ground and stable sensation with its 4-mm heel-to-toe differential. Reviewers mention that it forms a stable foundation for a solid and better footing during a golf swing.
Additional padding with the Ortholite
To make sure you feel extra comfortable inside this golf shoe, an Ortholite insole has been added.
Athletes note that in addition to extra underfoot padding, it also helps in keeping the foot fresh by wicking the sweat and moisture away.
NB Minimus Tour spikes are ready to bite
Players are happy with the amount of traction this golf shoe provides on wet and slippery ground.
Additional NDurance protection
To make sure the outsole lasts, New Balance added special NDurance rubber components in the high-wear areas.
Even though some reviewers complained about the nubs falling off at times, this part of the shoe generally ranked high in the durability department.
Minimus Tour has an accommodating toebox
Players are happy that the forefoot of the shoe offers enough space to keep the foot comfortable as it expands during a swing.
