  • Patent number: 9999275
    Abstract: A golf shoe has an upper, a midsole, and an outsole. The outsole includes a plurality of wave-like flex channels, surrounded by a hard base material. The hard base material provides stiffness for support and stability while the flex channels allow the outsole to bend when a user walks or swings a golf club. The outsole also has a plurality of receptacles for attaching and removing cleats, providing traction between the golf shoe and a ground surface.

  • Publication number: 20150096195
    Abstract: Golf shoes having improved outsole constructions are provided. The golf shoes include upper, midsole, and outsole sections. The outsole includes interior (central area) and exterior (perimeter area) traction projections. Materials having different hardness properties are used to construct different sections of the outsole. For example, thermoplastic polyurethanes may be used in the exterior region and rubber materials may be used in the interior region. The outsole has improved stability and flexibility.

  • Patent number: 8621768
    Abstract: A golf shoe having an upper, a midsole, and an outsole is provided. A collapsible support element is positioned in a recess proximate to a wearer's first metatarsal bone. The collapsible support element has anisotropic mechanical properties and includes a series of longitudinal wave elements. The wave elements are stiffer in a longitudinal direction and more collapsible in a transverse direction. The wave elements resist collapsing when a golfer walks but have a propensity to collapse during the golfer's swing, which allows more efficient transfer of energy during the swing. The shoe further includes flexing channels in a forward portion as well as a flexing channel in the rear portion.
