sole searching enJoy the walk t here's nothing like a comfortable new pair of golf shoes to help you walk your way around the course, and the lineup of releases for 2017 feature more than a hand- ful of options for feet. "There's always lots of innovation within the golf shoe companies," said Diane Dahlitz, shoe expert at the Roger Dunn Golf Shops Superstore in Santa Ana, Calif. "And this year, there's also lots of new aesthetics and im- provements in style. If your style is more ath- letic, Nike and adidas have put out some great options, and FootJoy is a really solid choice if your style tends to be more traditional. Either way, it's a good time to buy shoes. Worldwide Golf Shops has an extensive range of products and companies, which means you can always find something you like." If you're in the market for new shoes, Dahlitz recommends paying close attention to comfort, advising that after playing 18 holes, it's going to matter more that your feet feel good than if your shoes look good. scroll through the slideshow to view >> ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 APPAREL footJoy contour fit comfort is key w hen FootJoy innovators designed the new Contour Fit, comfort was key – and it's easy to tell that their efforts paid off. The insole, which was comfortable in past editions to begin with, is now thicker and extra deep, allowing it to better align with the natural shape of the foot. "The Contour Fit is a really good shoe overall," said Dahlitz. "FootJoy has improved the foam on the bottom of this shoe so it's softer than ever to play and walk on. They've also incorporated an Achilles pad to ensure ultimate protection on the back of the heel." Though the shoe is more comfortable, FootJoy made sure that it didn't come at the cost of sup- port, and describes this shoe as having uncom- promising lateral support and stability. Dahlitz says golfers who like a more modern approach will also appreciate the new style of the Contour- FIT, which has a sleeker, more athletic look. > C L I C K H E R E T O S H O P T H E C O M P L E T E L I N E O F S H O E S F R O M W O R L D W I D E G O L F S H O P S
