There is all kind of supportive features in these shoes. They are designed to make sure that you are going to get all the support and comfort that you need while you are on the course. They have a dual durometer footbed that gives you a combination of lateral support and medial softness that will aid you in harnessing the power of your swing, protecting your feet while you do it. They are designed to support the natural movement of your feet so you can enjoy your day out without risking unnecessary pain or discomfort.

The lacing system is integrated into the woven upper of the shoes to ensure that you are getting a locked in and secure feeling, not leaving a lot of room for your midfoot to slip and slide around inside the foot chamber. You will still get some wiggle room for your toes, but that does not mean that you need to have a lot of extra room for the rest of your feet to wobble around.

The midsole has some strategically placed cushioning throughout that will provide you with a decent amount of arch support that is adequate for a majority of those who will wear them. If you have slightly high arches or experience flat feet, then these might not be the best shoes for you right out of the box, but they work well for the vast majority of consumers.
