Who should NOT buy Nike Vapor Pro

The Adidas Tour360 XT SL or the Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour are better choices than the Vapor Pro for those who overpronate or want a more supportive golf shoe.

No break-in period

According to plenty of users, this Nike golf shoe has a straight-out-of-the-box comfort that is apparent.

Nike Vapor Pro padded tongue

The shoe comes with soft padding on the tongue and has a lining that wraps the foot on the heel for added comfort.

Cushioning that effectively absorbs impact

One notices that the addition of the Lunarlon cushioning makes a vast difference in the shoe's comfort.

Nike Vapor Pro cushioning

This cushioning technology was first used on Nike's basketball and running shoes. The golfing community now also benefits from this lightweight foam. Lunarlon effectively absorbs impact by evenly distributing the weight across the entire foot.

Vapor Pro's Flywire doesn't add weight and is flexible

According to a couple of reviewers, the shoe's lightweight nature is perfect for walking. Few individuals also highly appreciate the flexibility that this shoe provides.

The upper of the shoe utilizes a Nike Flywire. This advancement is composed of lightweight yet heavy-duty Vectran filaments that are placed on specific areas to enhance fit, support, and flexibility. 

Its removable spikes optimize its grip

Several testers laud the grip of the Vapor Pro on the course. It works well on both wet and dry surfaces.

The Vapor Pro comes with seven removable CHAMP PiviX golf spikes. Each of these is positioned on the outsides of the shoe delivering more gripping power on lateral movements.

It has a simple twist and lock system powered by the CHAMP SLIM-Lok system. The combination delivers extraordinary traction without sacrificing ground feel in different terrain conditions. 

Fasten it up with traditional closure

The lace-up closure ensures that the foot is securely fastened even through long-distance walking or when the foot rotates during a swing.

The waterproof Flywire upper allows the Vapor Pro to be unfazed through different seasons and weather conditions, and its styling perfectly aligns with it.

A one-year waterproofing warranty is given for this model to ensure complete water repellency throughout the year.

The clean and simple look of the Vapor Pro

A high number of golfers are instantly captivated by the Nike Vapor Pro's sleek and stylish profile. 

This shoe has achieved harmony in style as it carries off classic styling through the use of modern materials. The whole silhouette of the shoe exudes a clean and simple look, but it is also versatile enough to be paired with different types of clothing.

The entire look of the shoe is minimal, and the only branding that can be spotted on the whole shoe is the contrasting-colored Swoosh on the sides.

Supportive for those who don't have flat feet

Several commenters claim that this spiked pair is extraordinarily supportive.

However, the construction of the shoe tends to exaggerate overpronation, says one golfer.
