A smart, comfortable and versatile golf shoe at a great price. Despite the less than adventurous aesthetic, this is an excellent spikeless shoe.
Full leather upper a rarity on a shoe at this price
Impressive grip in a range of conditions
Slightly plain styling

Stuburt are a brand well known for providing golfers with high quality golf equipment at a more affordable price than some of the bigger brands in the sport.
The first thing to note is that it comes with a full grain leather upper, a feature often unheard of in a shoe this price. Most manufactures will opt for a synthetic upper on a spikeless shoe like this, but the leather upper used here makes the shoe softer, more comfortable and more breathable than its synthetic counterparts.
The Evolve II also uses Stuburt's Dri-Back technology, meaning it's fully waterproof too (you also get a 1-year warranty).
As for the grip, the spikeless traction offered by the outsole was impressive in a number of conditions. As you'd expect, it's great in dry conditions and the low profile feel makes for a much more comfortable walk across the turf.
The spikeless outsole has a number of strategically placed lugs to maximise the grip in areas where you need it most. The lugs are also made to be different sizes and shapes to aid this unique outsole structure and provide maximum grip.
Whilst we wouldn't recommend this shoe over some of the best spiked golf shoes in wet conditions, it certainly holds its own in the spikeless category and one of the best we've tried.
Paired with the cushioned and comfortable midsole and the Evolve II is a genuinely comfortable golf shoe that can hold its own in most conditions.
