Hey NG Nation! It’s been a while since I’ve posted a product review, but I had to share with you the great news about the Nike Golf FI Bermuda golf shoe. Here’s my review:
Here in Phoenix, a cool, comfortable pair of summer golf shoes is a must. For many years, Nike Golf has led the category of summer golf footwear, as has been well documented here on NGN — shoes like the Air Rate, Air Range, Lunar Ascend (here and here), FI Impact and FI Impact 2 (seen in this awesome ‘Don’t Sleep on Summer’ promo), all embody the epitome of style, comfort, coolness and stability that one could wish for in a summer golf shoe.
Nike Golf has continued its legacy of outstanding summer golf footwear with the FI Bermuda — an amazingly light, cool, comfortable golf shoe that delivers outstanding stability and traction on the course. I’ve worn my FI Bermudas at the range and on the course a few times now, and here is my review of how they’ve performed:
The FI Bermuda fits me true to size, with an ample forefoot section and wide toe box, which I prefer. Fit is snug and secure without being tight or narrow.
The “FI” stands for “Free-Inspired”, with the shoe design being based on Nike’s groundbreaking Nike Free running shoe technology. The style of the FI Bermuda is that of an athletic or running type shoe, with a mesh upper and flexible outsole.
This is where the FI Bermuda shines — I’ve said for a long time that Nike Golf makes the most comfortable golf shoes on the market, and the FI Bermuda is no exception. These shoes are extremely comfortable, a real pleasure to wear at the range and on the course.
The FI Bermuda features a comfortable inner “bootie” that locks your foot into the shoe — my feet stay put and don’t slide around inside the shoe during the golf swing.
The FI Bermuda features an integrated traction pattern that is molded into the sole of the shoe. The integrated traction does its job perfectly, I haven’t slipped once during a swing while wearing these shoes.
For a long time, the FI Impact and FI Impact 2 have been the most comfortable golf shoes I’ve ever owned. Well, I think they just lost the title, being edged out by the FI Bermuda — these shoes are super-light, super-comfortable, great looking and they perform amazingly on the course with great stability and traction. If you’re looking for a new pair of summer golf shoes for the 2016 season, I highly recommend you give the FI Bermuda a test drive.
