Stuburt Ace Casual Hybrid golf shoes review

Spikeless shoes are the preferred choice for plenty of golfers right now and these from Stuburt will appeal to a wide audience. The Ace Casual hybrid shoes really can be worn away from the golf course, but they perform pretty well on it too.

I took these out for 27 holes in pretty changeable conditions to see what they’re all about.

The First Look

I really liked what I saw when I first opened these shoes from Stuburt. They’re a subtle design, but on the feet they look great and will go with pretty much any outfit. The white detail at the bottom of these is definitely a nice touch and the good news is they’re pretty easy to clean, too.

All in all, a decent looking pair of shoes.

The Tech

Of course, these are spikeless shoes, but that doesn’t mean they lack innovation when it comes to technology.

They feature an advance lacing and sock-fit system, which is designed to deliver exceptional comfort and fit. The sock-fit collar is there to provide a snug yet breathable embrace for your foot on the course.

On the sole of these shoes, you’ll find versatility from the dual outsole. This seamlessly blends the performance of a golf shoe, along with the versatility of casual footwear. Stuburt say that whether you’re on the course or exploring the city streets, then these shoes are going to do the job.

They also feature advanced breathability for all-weather comfort. This allows your feet to stay cool and dry even in warm and humid conditions. Whether you’re playing in the sun or in the rain, these will help to keep your feet comfortable throughout the golf season.

The bunkered Verdict

I tested these shoes over two rounds, one of them being 18-holes and the other being nine-holes. The first thing to say is that despite being very wet underfoot both times, I didn’t feel any moisture in my feet whatsoever.

I was a little apprehensive about wearing these in potentially slippery conditions, and while I was still walking with care, they did well in terms of stability. Sure, I would get more traction with a spiked model, something which I usually wear, but I had no issues with these in terms of slipping.

These are certainly a comfortable pair of golf shoes. I had no issues in terms of breaking them in, in fact I played 18 holes the first time I had them on my feet and had no problems with comfort at all.

Another big plus to these is the fact that they can be worn away from the course too. I drove to and from the golf course in them and had no issue doing so, something which can’t really be done in spiked shoes, so that was a positive. It certainly saves time when you arrive to the course.

As I said before, I tend to wear spiked shoes on the course, particularly in competition and I’ll continue to do that when I have a scorecard in my pocket. That little bit of extra stability, for me, goes a long way. But, in dry conditions for nine holes after work, I’d have no issue putting these on.

One thing that you’ll notice is that these are great value for money. Coming in at under £80, they’re one of the most affordable golf shoes on the market, so if that’s something you’re looking for, you’ll appreciate these.
