Jordan Spieth is without doubt one of the most likeable Golfers on Tour. Well mannered and effortlessly stylish, the three-time major winner is the poster boy for Under Armour and over the years has been a superb ambassador for the brand. It’s no surprise then that Under Armour put their full backing into the former World number one and have created a dedicated Jordan Spieth line of footwear and apparel. In this article we take a closer look at what golf shoes Jordan Spieth wears?
Over the past five years Under Armour have developed a shoe that is based on Jordan’s exacting requirements as well as his styling, traction and comfort preferences. The latest iteration of this is the 2021 Under Armour Spieth 5 SL golf shoe which is a premium spikeless offering.
Since 2016 Jordan has worn a new iteration of the Under Armour Spieth shoe every year and he’s seen incredible success with it. With his latest win coming in April 2021 at the Valero Texas Open the shoe is a consistent feature of Jordan’s regularly scripting. Most recently Jordan could be seen wearing the Spieth 5 SL golf shoes in April at the 2021 Masters at Augusta National, and in June at the 2021 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.
The Under Armour Spieth 5 SL golf shoe
The Spieth 5 SL is an incredibly well thought out golf shoe and Jordan’s renowned attention to detail is clear in every aspect of it. The shoes have the grip and power levels of a spiked golf shoe but the comfort and feel of a spikeless option – creating the best of both worlds. Under Armour also include their UA Rotational Resistance Traction element within the sole which creates incredible levels of stability throughout the golf swing. With the Spieth 5 SL, Under Armour also introduced the ‘Fourth Dimension of Traction’ which is a grip and traction technology aimed at making a spikeless golf which surpasses anything else that’s gone before.
To top things off there is the UA HOVR cushioning system which returns the energy put through the bottom of the shoe giving excellent levels of comfort hour after hour, round after round. Helpfully they’re also waterproof whilst still remaining breathable making them ideal for wet conditions.
