ADIDAS CROSSKNIT BOOST
A full-length foam midsole returns energy to your feet with every step. Your legs will feel as fresh as you putt out on No. 18 as they did when you teed off on No. 1. $160; adidasgolf.com

ECCO COOL
An advanced air-channeling system provides 360-degree breathability with full waterproof protection, keeping your feet cool and dry in all weather. The outsole bonds to the upper sans glue or stitching, yielding flexibility and a lighter load. $280; eccousa.com

FOOTJOY CONTOURFIT
This comfort-defining waterproof shoe combines a soft midsole; a soft, extra-thick insole that matches your foot's contours; and a cushy heel pad that adds support and protection in the rear. Its flexible outsole bends with your foot. $135; footjoy.com

NEW BALANCE NBG2004
This 11.6-ounce shoe features a midsole originally designed to give runners lightweight cushioning and an outsole with anatomically placed grooves, so it flexes with your foot's natural motion. $120; newbalance.com

NIKE LUNAR CONTROL VAPOR
An outsole inspired by snowmobile tread bears protruding teeth that grab the ground as your weight shifts from heel to toe during your swing. Extra foam underfoot adds cushioning. $175; nike.com
