Who should buy Nike Air Max 90 G

  • only want to play a short round of golf
  • don’t play much during the wet days
  • want a golf shoe that they can wear outside the golf course

Who should NOT buy Nike Air Max 90 G

The AM 90 G is not that grippy. Consider getting a spiked golf shoe if you want a reliable golf shoe that will surely bite on any surface like the Nike Vapor. There are also spikeless golf shoes with proven traction like the Footjoy Pro SL.

Nike Air Max 90 G vs. Air Max 90

The most apparent difference between these two shoes is, of course, that each is designed for a different purpose. Below are more comparisons between the two models.

  • The outsole of the golf version is updated for golf use to provide better traction than its sneaker counterpart.
  • The pairs' midsoles house the same elements: foam midsole and Nike Max Air unit, providing tried-and-tested comfort.
  • The golf iteration has a predominantly seamless upper, looks sleeker, and uses more updated materials.
  • The AM 90 G is waterproof.

Be careful, you might slip

Many golf players observe that this model doesn't have the same grippy golf shoe feel as their other pairs. But some are quick to emphasize that "it has more grip than sneakers."
