As he launched his first signature under the global brand Under Armour, Jordan Spieth went right into the core of the sport. The Spieth One boasts that it is created "Down to a Science." It means that similar to how the athlete plays, it showcases precision.
The bottom of the UA Spieth One features a spiked outsole with the innovation called the Rotational Resistance Spikes (RST). These spikes are developed by the brand to address the natural tendency of the foot to resist when weight is placed on the forefoot. This resistance causes slip during a golf swing. Thus, two of these special spikes are located at the forefoot and the other two are placed on the heel. The spikes rotate to provide secure turf lockdown and stop during lateral and medial positions. The rest of the cleats help in providing additional grip on the ground when walking on the course.
An extraordinary trait of the outsole is its dual-durometer characteristic. Having two types of firmness, a softer forefoot and a firmer heel, get the best of both worlds of attaining flexibility, stability, and support, where they are needed to be.
Comfort remains to be a top priority of the Spieth One. The shoe holds a lightweight EVA cushioning system that gives a responsive feel on every step. It blends well with the detachable PU footbed that offers plush underfoot comfort.
The material that is covering the majority of the golf trainer hits two birds with one stone. The one-seam upper does not only improve the overall fit and feel of the shoe but it also drastically reduces the weight.
To make its features more spot-on, the upper is placed with the Storm technology. It maintains breathability while completely repelling water off.
Just like the technologies injected into this shoe, its look also speaks much about the athlete that represents it. The Spieth One, at first look, is simple yet modern-styled. However, having a closer inspection shows that the details make up much of its characteristics.
It is minimalist yet packed with various textures and patterns while incorporating contrasting hues. The trainer guarantees that it blends well with different clothes and characters.
