Stuburt Urban 2.0 Spikeless Golf Shoe Review
It’s no secret that golf can be an expensive sport. With the current economic times we live in, the luxury of golf equipment and apparel is currently not at the top of all of our spending priorities. However, rising prices and economic pressure shouldn’t mean we can’t fully enjoy our hobbies and have gear that makes us feel, look and play our best. Enter the Stuburt Urban 2.0 Spikeless Golf Shoes, a very solid offering at a very competitive price compared to the rest of the best golf shoes of 2022.
Available in three colors – grey, navy and black – the Urban 2.0 is a spikeless golf shoe with a mixed mesh and synthetic leather upper. It’s a very casual style shoe that I think lends itself perfectly to a summer golf shoe. While the style isn’t going to set the world on fire, I love how its neutral, relaxed silhouette lends it to be worn on and off the course. The neutral look will also allow the Urban 2.0 to match most outfits you already have in your closet. This should hopefully mean that you only have to invest in a pair of golf shoes, which will further reduce costs.
So far I have only been able to test it on the golf course in dry conditions and impressively the grip has proven to be as good as many more expensive Urban 2.0 counterparts. All of the best spikeless golf shoes should be able to provide solid grip in dry conditions – and the Urban 2.0 does just that – but I’m afraid the Urban 2.0 will struggle in wet conditions. As good as it is in the dry, I can see how the Under Armor HOVR Tour SL or FootJoy Fuel models will provide much more year-round wearability, as the Urban 2.0’s outsole doesn’t have the l seem to do so. Convincingly handle properly wet conditions.
From a comfort standpoint, the Urban 2.0 again shows a solid performance compared to similar shoes on the market. Sure, the Ecco Biom C4 and Skechers Go Golf Drive 5 are going to offer more comfort, but the Urban 2.0’s insole offers a good amount of cushioning and doesn’t hurt your feet at the end of around. It’s true to size and I can see how the width will fit a lot of different foot shapes and widths. It should be noted that ankle and heel support can be a slight issue in the Urban 2.0. It certainly doesn’t offer the same “locked in” feel as the FootJoy Pro SL or G/FORE MG4x2 shoe, but that’s why it lends itself to being a great casual summer shoe. At under £50, the Stuburt Urban 2.0 Golf Shoe is an impressive deal if you’re looking for something casual, neutral and comfortable for the drier months of the golf season.
