Who should buy the New Balance Striker
The New Balance Striker is made for golfers who are looking for an all-around shoe that can be used all-year-round. It is a solid option if you:
- Need a shoe that has spiked construction and serves as a nice option for traditionalists, or those craving for a sure-footing when walking or swinging on damp areas.
- Need a shoe that is ideal for the rainy and cold season because of its waterproofing qualities.
Champ Slim-Lok Zarma Tour cleats
The bottom of the Striker is engineered with Champ Slim-Lok Zarma Tour cleats. It is designed to draw in optimum traction and support as it holds the turf.
The cleat system is seated on an exoskeleton TPU outsole, which is durable enough to handle aggressive wear but flexible enough to move with the natural motion of the foot.
The CUSH+ houses the interior of the shoe. The removable insole works like a leveled up insole. However, its cushioning works comparably to memory foam because its softness and stability help provide comfort throughout the entire round.
Accompanying the Cush+ is the REVlite, a foam compound that provides 30% more responsiveness and durability than typical NB foams.
Waterproof microfiber leather
A waterproof microfiber leather covers almost the entire upper of the New Balance Striker. It is complemented by a FantomFit support system, a skeletally-engineered upper that fuses two thin and lightweight materials through a no-sew process. This technology enhances the support and fit of the shoe.
It is also built on a PW-1 last. It features a lower instep height, anatomical heel width, lessened toe box depth, and wider toe box to accommodate the foot as it expands during a swing.
