Mizuno is taking its golf footwear game to the next level with the release of five new models for 2021.

Mizuno has a reputation for producing top-notch running shoes, and for this latest golf shoe line-up, the Japanese brand looked to increase the design influence from its acclaimed running and court shoe departments.

Extreme comfort and ultra-lightweight performance are two key features present across the entire range.

“Mizuno is in a unique position – widely respected for our running shoes, but unlike other dedicated footwear brands, we also have a passionate following amongst golfers,” said Kate Whitmore, Soft Goods Manager for Mizuno EMEA.

She added: “This deeper footwear line-up features the perfect balance of comfort, looks and the stability needed for an efficient golf swing.”

Headlining this new collection is the premium Nexlite Pro, which delivers the comfort of soft-touch leather, with the support and lightweight ride of an EVA midsole running shoe. 

The streamlined looks, a monochrome Runbird logo and the perfectly fitted upper are the result of a centrally placed BOA closure unit.

At just 270g per shoe, the Pro will take the weight off both the joints and feet when walking 18 and beyond.

The Nexlite GS Spiked delivers stability in all conditions, with the support and lightweight ride of an EVA midsole running shoe. A soft-touch fully waterproof Kurary upper is securely fitted with Mizuno’s BOA system.

The GS’s spikeless counterpart brushes the scales at a featherlight 235g per shoe but once again delivers the support and feel of a Mizuno running shoe. The hard-wearing X10 rubber sole will maintain a grip in all but the wettest conditions.
