After a long, cold winter I’m excited to take a vacation beginning at the end of this week. I’ll be relaxing on a beach in Florida with the family. I have the perfect shirt scripting lined up with my new Puma Golf Paradise Shirt.
The Paradise shirt is part of Puma’s PLAY LOOSE collection and that’s just what I’m going to be doing. This full button-up shirt is made from 89% polyester and 11% spandex, making it lightweight and very soft.
Puma Golf is making some cool new golf shirts that are a cross between a polo and a button down beach shirt. They’re part of the “Play Loose” collection. Here’s a first look at one of two new ones HOG will be reviewing below. Say hello to the Breezer Golf Shirt.
The Breezer works tucked or untucked (better untucked). The 91% polyester 9% elastane fabric is super soft and comfortable.
I just cracked this shirt open today and I’m looking forward to giving it a full wear test. Stay tuned for the full HOG review soon.
It’s not too early to think about Father’s Day. I can already guarantee dad will love a Puma Golf Breezer Golf Shirt.
I just upped by Masters Tournament apparel scripting for this week with the newly arrived Augusta-green Union Camo Polo from Puma Golf. The moment I saw Puma’s promo of this polo with Rickie Fowler wearing it, I knew I had to have one. Check it out:
I must admit the fabric on this polo is quite a surprise. It is made from 83% polyester, 13% cotton and has a “fluffy” feel and look to it. I’ve already put it though one day of use and it is extremely comfortable. Super soft and smooth.
My normal review length will extend my review past the Masters Tournament, so I wanted to at least get you a quick preview for this great week of golf and the first major of the year. Stay tuned for the full HOG review soon.
What’s the minimum miles walked before posting a legit golf shoe review? I’m going with 125+. I figure I’ve put that many miles (still going) on these Puma Ignite PWRADAPT Disc – golf shoes:
They don’t look as clean and pristine now, but they’re still in fantastic shape. Let’s take a look at the Ignite PWRADAPT Disc golf shoes.
Puma Ignite PWRADAPT Disc Golf Shoes Features
The PWRADAPT technology provides traction and stability in the bottom of the shoe, along with “tornado” cleats.
IGNITE foam in the sole, “adapts” to the terrain and all the flexing and turning of the golfer’s feet. The foam provides cushion and insulation to help reduce fatigue and aches/pains in the lower body.
The “performance mesh” of the upper in the shoe looks sort of like wet suit material. The mesh is very flexible but supports the feet comfortably. The shoe does boast a 2-year waterproof guarantee, so perhaps there’s something to the wet suit comment. The upper is also supported by the PWRFRAME. I know. I know. PWRTHIS and PWRTHAT. My spell checker is going nuts.
The disc system is for lacing/tightening the shoe. The “laces” are a coated metal wire which is tightened by the disc when rotated clockwise. To loosen just pop the disc counter-clockwise and it pops open.
The Ignite PWRADAPT Disc golf shoes are available currently in three colors. Black (shown here), as well as a tan and a light gray. I hope to snag a pair of the light grays for “scripting purposes.”
Sizes range from 7-14.
The fit of the shoe is accurate. If you wear a 10, order a 10. This cannot be said for some other golf shoe makers where it is a bit of a crap shoot.
On The Course
I wore these at the office for a few hours before my first round, just in case there were any issues or quick breaking in needed. No issues. After a short time I knew I could walk the course in them fine, and that same day I walked one of the most hilly courses in town, comfortably.
Since then I’ve confidently gamed the Ignite PWRADAPT Disc golf shoes with great results. I find the shoes to be very comfortable. I have never encountered a traction problem. My feet have never slipped in the 125+ miles I’ve used them.
The disc/lace system is very cool. The disc opens very wide, allowing easy entry of the foot into the shoe. Since I’m using in a parking lot sitting on my rear bumper, this is a welcome benefit. Same goes for removing the shoes. Pop the disc and open wide for easy exit.
Once my feet are in before my round, I’ll tighten the disc system just slightly for walking around, to/from the parking lot and such. Once I hit the range or get ready to start making real golf swings, I’ll crank the discs down and tighten up the shoes for best fit, adaptability and traction.
I have worn these in very light rain but have not had the chance to fully experience how well they perform in heavier rain and wet conditions. I have no reason not to believe they’ll perform very well.
A quick video review:
The Ignite PWRADAPT Disc golf shoes perform highly in three most important HOG golf shoe criteria: performance, comfort, and style. High marks across the board. #winning
Recently in for review is a pair of Puma Ignite PWRADAPT Disc Golf Shoes. I’ve already started the rigorous Hooked on Golf Blog test battery.
I walked two rounds in the Puma Ignite PWRADAPT Disc Golf Shoes last week and several more walking rounds will be coming for the next few weeks. I don’t wear golf shoes for five minutes in my office and then post a review. I test them for weeks and even months, on real golf courses, playing real golf!
These golf shoes feature a “Disc” lacing system. That’s the funky looking dial (disc) you see at the top of the tongue of the shoe. The single lace on each shoe is metal, and twisting the disc one way tightens and the other way pops it open. Check out the quick video demonstration below.
