New Balance looks to bring its running shoe smarts to golf footwear

TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014

When a company known for running shoes takes up golf, no one should be surprised its focus would be on comfort, support and feeling light. These keys guided New Balance and its new NBG2002 golf shoe. 

NewStuff-NewBalance-shoe.jpgThe midsole is made of the company's REVlite material, which aids in cushioning and keeps the shoe's weight to only 11.9 ounces. Its outsole offers stability, and just a 10-millimeter drop from the heel to the midsole increases the shoe's responsiveness. 

New Balance's athletic influence is obvious, too. Though the upper is made of microfiber leather, it still has a running-shoe look. 

The NBG2002 ($125) comes in three colors and has a two-year waterproof warranty.

I wonder if these are made in the US plant or overseas?  NB does a bit of both.
