Nike Junior Remix Golf Shoe

Ever since my little man has been interested in golf it has cost us a fair bit of money to kit him out in all the necessary items needed for him to go and have a game with his daddy. I have tried to source the cheapest items I can and have bought a few items second hand but often when it comes to certain things, such as shoes, you can't scrimp on the price as I feel sporting footwear is important and you do get what you pay for.

Price and Avalibility

These Nike Junior Remix Golf shoes were for sale on Amazon and luckily I had a few Amazon vouchers saved up in my account which meant I didn't have to pay out of my own “proper” money for them. The price they were up for was £29.99 pence and there was some money off of the RRP at the time I purchased them. This price is not a bad one as it seems that most junior golf shoes of what ever brand are around the same price so I didn't feel as though I was paying over the odds and of course I was getting a good brand name with buying a Nike product.

The shoes came and were a perfect fit for Jack and he was happy that they were both comfortable and ideal for playing up the club with his daddy. He not only wears them to play on the actual course but he will wear them when they go to the driving range as well so that he gets used to the feel and breaks them in too.

The good thing about these golf shoes is that they don't look too “golfy” like some other shoes I was looking at do. They have a very trainer type look about them whilst still being smart enough to go up the course and not be looked down upon by some of the snooty members of the club.

The Shoes

The shoes are laces as you would imagine and as we are still teaching Jack to tie his laces correctly he will often need a hand with tying them up but does always try to give it a go and will sometimes master this technique on his own accord. The laces themselves are strong and sturdy and I can't see them breaking any time soon. They have of course been getting rather grubby of late what with all the mud on the course so I have taken them off and popped them in the washing machine with a white wash and this has brought them up nice and new looking.

The shoes are made from a water resistant synthetic leather which means that unless you step in a rather deep puddle or try to retrieve your lost ball from the lake, in theory your feet should stay dry and fresh even when the grass and course is muddy and wet. This has seemed to have been the case each time Jack and his daddy go out and they both come home with dry socks and feet. Of course the bottoms of their trouser generally get a bit wet unless they have been wearing their waterproof trousers but this will only happen when they go out in the rain (my other half is trying to teach Jack not to be a fair weather golfer – either that or make him catch pneumonia again!).

The trainers are made from a mostly white colouring which means that the mud likes to stick to them and they will often need a clean. The material that they are made from does mean that cleaning them isn't too difficult and I am trying to get Jack to master this task himself along with his football boots and he seems to be getting the hang of using the brush to bring them up nice and takes pride in keeping them looking good.

The thing that appealed to jack most with these trainers is the fact that you can change the look of them somewhat by using the colourful discs that come with the shoes and insert them inside the mesh design to show through on the Nike tick on the outside. This means that you can have a different coloured tick each time you wear them and it makes it seem like you have a ton of different shoes! Its these simple things that kids love I guess. It is a nice feature although more of a bonus one rather than making them any more comfortable or better for the game.

The most important aspect of the golf shoes, even more so than the water proof part of them is that they have the 7 disc shaped spike in the bottom of the shoe. These grey grippers so to speak make sure that they give the wearer the up most comfort and grip on different kinds of terrain so that when you are swinging your club your feet won't slide around and it gives you a good sturdy fix on the ground. Therefore Jack can't blame his poor shot on the slippage of his foot position!

Overall

Jack has been wearing these shoes for a good few months now and although they have the usual wear and tear that you would expect from any kind of sport shoe they are still in a pretty good condition. He states that they are comfortable to wear and the inner sole cushion that these golf shoes have would support that fact. With looking after I should expect that these shoes will last him a good while and he will grow out of them whilst they are still looking okay and we may be able to sell them on to put the money made towards his next pair.

I think that Nike have made a fabulous little pair of shoes for the young golfer here and I would highly recommend them. I am glad I didn't opt for a cheaper brand as I really do think these shoes offer good value for money in the way that they are made and the comfort and grip that they provide. Jack is most impressed with the way the coloured tick can be changed and with the fact that he looks “just like daddy”. This does help him to be more keen on the game and the keener he is the better he is seeming to play and become a little super star in my eyes! Rory Macilroy better watch out!

A tops core of 5 out of 5 stars and a super high recommendation is what I am more than happy to award these great little shoes!

I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you

Many thanks for taking the time to read.
