The good folks at Nike Golf Japan unveiled a new golf shoe for 2011 called the Zoom SHINXI. There’s not a whole lot of information about this new shoe but what I can tell you is that it has the same sole as the Lunar Control, which in my experience, is the best platform that Nike Golf has ever made. However, it does not appear to have the Lunarlon base which would be sorely missed if that is the case. The other main difference is that unlike the shoes in the U.S. which are made out of waterproof leather, the Zoom SHINXI is made out of artificial leather.
There are four different models including White/Volt, White/Red, White/Black and Black/Red. And the more I look at it, the more it resembles a hybrid of the Zoom Advance and the Lunar Control. One key improvement is the lacing system which conceals the laces. I don’t know why, but it just seems more visually appealing to me when putting.
