A High-Performance, Lightweight Athletic-Style Cleated Golf Shoe

Boston, Mass, August 1, 2016 – For Fall 2016, New Balance has introduced the NBG2004 golf shoe, a lightweight, athletic-style cleated shoe with a waterproof microfiber upper and REVLite® midsole designed for ultimate comfort.

The NBG2004 is built on the new PW-1 last which is perfect for golf. The wider forefoot allows the toes to spread out for balance, while the lower instep height helps the foot stay connected to the ground, which improves overall feel and power. The shallower toe box helps to keep the forefoot locked in, while the narrower heel creates stability during the swing. The waterproof microfiber leather upper has an ultralight FantomFit™ support and a welded form-fitted tongue construction.

The REVlite® midsole, originally designed to provide lightweight cushioning to runners, is an innovative foam compound that delivers responsiveness, durability and a lightweight ride without sacrificing underfoot cushioning and stability.


The TPU outsole also features anatomically placed grooves in the forefoot which provide flexibility and allow the shoe to move with the natural motion of your foot. The NBG2004 uses the low-profile Champ Slim-Lok® Zarma Tour cleat system* with seven cleats, for better contact with the ground and the ability to harness more power with the swing. The NBG2004 is backed by a two-year waterproof warranty.**
