Puma Avant golf shoes review

Puma are known for their bright colours and fun designs, especially when it comes to their golf shoes. But, with the new Avant shoes, we have two classic and traditional styles mixed with today’s modern technology.   

First Look

If you like a classic golf shoe design with a splash of modern tech, that’s exactly what you have with the Avant. With a brogue-like design, this is a seriously good looking shoe.

The traction design on the sole is fun, with a burst of colour in typical Puma fashion. On the sole, you’ll see the word ‘Golf’ in bright colours.  The heel insert stands out but it’s subtle, blending in with the sole of shoe which gives it that hint of modern tech.

The Tech

All models feature premium materials and modern technologies, making them as functional as they are classic. Most notably, all Avant shoes are built with a premium full grain leather upper with one-year waterproof protection, lending an ultra-premium look and feel in all conditions. The Avant style features full-length profoam eva midsoles, providing exceptional cushioning and all-day comfort. Radial Traction Technology for spikeless performance utilises strategically placed ridges and lugs to grip any surface players might encounter. 

In addition, a Proclip TPU Heel Counter and Performance TPU Welt provides a secure fit and 360-degree stability around the foot. Other features include a Comfort Collar Lining for improved step in feel and elevated details like the metal cat badge and brogue details. 

“The saddle and wingtip styles were a lot of fun to design. We are entering the classics space. A traditional style is a first for us and we are super thrilled to be part of the action. We want to serve the golfer; we have been listening and are excited to deliver this trend to our golf consumer.” – Andrew Lawson, Senior PLM, Golf Footwear at Puma Golf.

The bunkered Verdict

If you look at this shoe, you’ll love the classic design with the modern tech that’s integrated into it. It looks like it would be expensive, but for £100 it’s a great price. It still has the traits of what Puma likes to do with brighter colours, but it’s very much all business on the top and party on the bottom with the bright traction design.

It looks great and sounds extremely comfortable. I’ll be getting a pair on my feet as soon as possible and will give you a full review.

RRP: £100
