Who should not buy the Nike Vapor

You should consider getting another model if you want:

  • a golf shoe for all conditions since the Nike Vapor is not fully waterproof, which makes this inappropriate for wet days
  • a shoe where you can replace the spikes

Amplified but not too aggressive grip

The bottom of the shoe sports a revolutionary technology called the Integration Traction. It is unique to spikeless golf trainers because it amplifies the grip by having a design that resembles the weight transfer pattern of a golf swing. 

Nike Vapor outsole

Built-in spikes are also placed on the outsole. However, the design of the cleats is not as aggressive as the usual spikes seen on regular golf shoes. The low-profile shape allows it not to compromise being close to the turf.

Long-lasting comfort

The midsection of the Vapor utilizes an EVA Fitsole Sockliner. It is die-cut to improve cushioning and support. It is also complemented by a soft foam midsole, which generates a plush layer that breeds long-lasting comfort.

Nike Vapor can resist water but it isn’t fully waterproof

Synthetic leather makes up the upper of this Swoosh pair. Not only will it satisfy those that are gearing towards the protection of the environment, but it is water-resistant as well. It means that the Nike Vapor can withstand light moisture and morning dew.

Simple but premium look of the Nike Vapor

One of the wonders of synthetic leather is that it remains to look as sleek as genuine leather. Despite looking minimal because of the simple styling, the overall design of the shoe remains stylish and premium.

Because of the water-resistant upper, the Nike Vapor is ideal to be worn when the weather’s perfect. But, its versatile style illustrates that it pairs well with both shorts and trousers.

Nike Vapor low top

This particular model is also decorated with a lace-up closure. To inject additional durability on this trainer, the laces are incorporated with debossed eye stays.
