Who should NOT buy it

As an expert puts it, the React Infinity Pro is a "takedown baby brother model" of the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour. So, if you don't mind spending extra on a more advanced golf shoe, you might consider going for the Infinity Tour. It comes with a real knit upper that feels more soft and airy than the Infinity Pro.

Another option to consider is the Nike React Vapor 2, which is one of the brand's range-topping golf shoes at the moment.

Innovative outsole

As opposed to other cleated models, the React Infinity Pro is designed with Piston rubber spikes. They are made of a soft and flexible element, they compress with pressure to reach maximum energy return and comfort. Golfers took note of how smooth walking feels in the React Infinity Pro compared to most spiked golf shoes.

At the same time, the outsole doesn't skimp on traction. Expert reviewers were impressed with the level of grip. "I didn't slip once in them," states one expert.

Some golfers wished that the spikes were replaceable though. If one spike breaks, you will have to replace the entire shoe.

Keeps you dry (as long as it's not pouring)

A large portion of the shoe's upper is treated with NikeSkin. It gives structure to the shoe and keeps the moisture out. Its waterproofing ability received lots of praise from golfers. However, if you do get caught in really heavy rain, the water is likely to seep through.

Secure fit but could be more comfortable

The Nike React Infinity Pro is going to keep your foot locked-in in the heel area. No heel slippage has been reported by the reviewers.

On the other hand, "it's not the softest-feeling upper, it feels a little bit cheap," as one expert puts it. He also got blisters on the heel after 9 holes.

High-energy midsole of the React Infinity Pro

Nike React Infinity Pro is a looker

This golf shoe from Nike is based on the silhouette of the Nike React Infinity Run running shoe. This is where the shoe gets its sleek and streamlined look which is so well-loved by the players.

The shoe comes in a variety of colorways including both classic black and white as well as bolder hues that make you stand out on the course. To cut it short, be prepared for other players to cut eyes at your shoes.
