Who should NOT buy it

With no dirt-trapping grooves and crushable Air Zoom units in its midsole, the Nike Vapor Pro is a great alternative to the Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT%. And if you have burly feet, try the wide version of the Hyperflex from Footjoy.

Updates to the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT%

The featured Nike shoe has been updated to give players more golfing prowess on the course. While its weight and asking price are exactly the same as its predecessor (a.k.a. the Air Zoom Infinity Tour), it comes with several improvements, the noteworthiest of which are as follows:  

Reinforced ankle cuff. The showy design of the OG version's collar is gone in the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT%. In its place is a lower-profile shaft, whose reinforcements deliver extra support around the ankle.

Randed toe box. A hardy overlay or rand now envelops the toe section of the Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT%. Its presence makes the upper around the forefoot a lot tougher, especially against abrasive and bumpy hazards.

Revamped outsole. The Air Zoom Infinity Tour's rubber outsole only had one big spike on the heel. Its successor, on the other hand, has two, albeit smaller. This change increases the front foot's control and stability during and after the swing.

Jaw-dropping comfort from the box

The Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT% is undeniably pampering, according to quite a number of reviewers. Their hot takes on the shoe's level of comfort are as follows:

  • "Mad comfy."
  • "Felt like I was walking on clouds."
  • "Super comfortable for walking the greens."

The better news here is that the kick's wonderful snugness is available right from the get-go. "It felt like I played a hundred rounds in them," says a vlogger.

Next-level grip on the course

With remarks such as "no slippage whatsoever!" and "the grip is perfect," the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT% is simply tenacious. An expert was also floored by its sticking prowess not just on natural grass but also on artificial turf.

Furthermore, the stock footbed of the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT% appears to be quite non-slip, too. "The grip on the insole was amazing," a vlogger said.

Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT%: A haven for dirt

"Dirt traps" is what a gear pundit calls the recesses on the sides of the featured shoe's midsole. They collect a variety of debris, including grass clippings, according to another.

This issue appears to be only the other half of the story, as those deep channels allegedly can be quite tough to clean. Ridding them of soggy grass clippings is "an absolute pain," says a golf player.

Your balance preserved

The Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT% delivers excellent balance, according to reviewers. It has "insane stability," says one of them. Another tester is more specific about it, saying that the shoe is "very stable in the heel."

Air-like lightness in every box

With comments such as "extremely lightweight" and "SUPER lightweight," the Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT% truly delivers on the weight front. After all, it's 61 g lighter per shoe than the average weight of spiked golf shoes.

Great but frail Air Zoom units

A footwear critic says that, with the shoe's Air Zoom units, you can pull off "explosive moves." In other words, your forefoot will feel powerful, especially during each swing.

That said, there are those who allege that the Air Zoom units of the featured kick aren't as durable as they should be. One golfer says that the shoe isn't for heavy hitters because, in their experience, the Zoom Air units got crushed easily after an aggressive swing. In another case, the shoe's bouncy pods popped during a player's second round.

But its confines could be more spacious

Reports say that the Air Zoom Infinity Tour NEXT% is still not that spacious. This is despite the fact that Nike engineers have increased the shoe's volume to give wearers a roomier experience.
