Golf Monthly's Under Armour Spieth One Shoe Review, a new performance cleated model designed with help from two-time major champion Jordan Spieth

Under Armour Spieth One Shoe Review

Key technology The Spieth One has a breathable, waterproof upper to ensure world-class performance even in the toughest golfing conditions, preventing water from entering the shoe, but allowing perspiration to escape.

It also features groundbreaking Rotational Resistance Traction, which prevents the rotation of the foot during the swing from backswing to impact. The upper of the Spieth One is composed with a single seam, reducing layers and weight while enhancing the overall fit and feel.

Additionally, a dual durometer outsole has a softer forefoot for flexibility, paired with a firm heel for stability and support.

Will suit Those who prefer the feel and performance of a cleated shoe as well as modern styling.

GM Review

Looks From all sides, the Spieth One is a busy-looking shoe, with lots going on around the upper and on the sole. Some are purely cosmetic, but most are there with a tangible performance benefit.

Under Armour Speith One

Performance It’s clear Under Armour has left no stone unturned and no avenue untapped in developing this shoe and having a two-time major champion involved in the entire process can only enhance the end product.

What we have in Spieth One is a ground breaking design – we haven’t seen such a radical cleat design as is found in the rotational resistance traction cleats developed by Champ that feature on the outsole of Spieth One. It’s hard to measure if they do actually reduce your foot’s tendency to turn excessively, but what is certain is that they maintain excellent stability and ground contact for maximum power.

Under Armour Spieth One Sole

Under Armour’s previous premium cleated shoe offerings perhaps lacked the out-of-the-box comfort golfers of today expect, but this is no such problem in the Spieth One. Underfoot cushioning is rife and obvious, as is the padding around the ankle and underneath the tongue, making it a much more pleasant prospect when walking between shots.

That comfort continues during the round regardless of the playing conditions thanks to the softness and breathability of the leather upper. The alignment lines on the inside of the upper are a nice touch, as is the Jordan Spieth logos and the dual hardness of the outsole, utilizing a firmer material on the outside to increase stability through more perimeter weighting.

In terms of performance, the Spieth One excels in every area a golfer looks for and at £150, there's some decent value for money to be had.
