It’s been nearly three years since Cleveland/Srixon/XXIO announced their exclusive partnership with Asics to help bring new golf shoes to the North American market. We’ve seen several pairs of Asics golf shoes hit the market through this affiliation, and as you’d expect, they’ve all looked very similar to what you might find when looking for a new pair. of running shoes. In reality, this should come as no surprise, as Asics makes some of the best running shoes in the world. That changes today as Asics releases the GEL-ACE PRO M golf shoe, which pits athletic style in favor of a more classic golf shoe.

“These GEL-ACE PRO M golf shoes are great for providing a solid foundation for my golf swing,” said Hideki Matsuyama, Srixon Staff Member and Grand Champion. “The comfort and support are second to none and have been central to my success on the Tour.”

Just because the GEL-ACE PRO M looks more like a hiking shoe doesn’t mean it doesn’t have the feel and stability associated with Asics. An X-shaped TPU Trusstic runs from rearfoot to forefoot, helping to add support throughout the golf swing. Asics FlyteFoam is also present to help provide lightweight shock absorption, while the Flex Groove allows for some flexibility on the sole. These factors work with ASICS GEL to make the GEL-ACE PRO M a shoe that will provide plenty of comfort on the course.

Asics opted for soft synthetic leather for the upper part of the shoe. This material will help provide waterproofing to keep your feet dry on rainy days. At this time, I don’t see any mention of an annual waterproof warranty, but I anticipate these will be assessed over that one to two year period.

Even though the GEL-ACE Pro M shoes are making headlines today, Asics has also introduced two updated colorways for the GEL-COURSE DUO BOA shoes. I expect the color combinations to pop up when I’m talking about Asics shoes, and while that’s not the case with the new white/black and black/black options, I think those options fit in well with the three current colors. As with the GEL-ACE Pro M shoes, these new color options for the GEL-COURSE DUO BOA golf shoes are available today.

Golfers who clamor for a golf shoe similar to Hideki Matsuyama’s should be pleased with the release of the new GEL-ACE PRO M. As part of the initial release, there are only two color options for the PRO M, White/black and black/pure silver. Hopefully Asics will add a few more colors like they did today with the GEL-COURSE DUO BOA.
