The TOMO Volume 1 golf shoes are super comfortable and very affordable. Light and breathable with good traction.
Almost every golfer that I know wants to play more golf. Making that a reality means that we need to be able to transition quickly from the real world to the golf course and back. TOMO aims to ease that transition with their versatile, wear-anywhere Volume 1 golf shoe. Can this shoe really pull off the feat of being high performance on the course and fashionable off it?
The Volume 1 is a clean looking knit shoe. Branding is limited to an embossed leather square on the tongue and “Tomo” printed on the heel strap.
Tomo is making the initial run in four colors: Sand, Stone, Charcoal, and Forest. In the dark and light grey (Charcoal and Stone), the shoes have a bright red sole that adds a fun visual pop with each step. Sand and Forest get a less flashy orange sole.
The TOMO Vol. 1 has a broken-in feel right out of the box. At under 10 ounces, they’re extremely light, and the knit upper conforms to your foot like a sock.
Their best feature in the summer is the breathability. On a 90+ degree day, the Volume 1 made walking tolerable. I’d have a hard time going back to traditional shoes in the heat.
Traction is often an uphill battle for spikeless shoes. I found that the TOMO Vol. 1 stands up well next to similar shoes from other companies. They provide adequate grip in good conditions, but they do sacrifice stability when the turf is wet or sloppy.
TOMO’s secret weapon is in the sole. Where many shoes use EVA, TPU, or rubber, TOMO uses polyurethane. This material, combined with their FLEX Technology, make the shoe bounce back with each step rather than just absorbing your foot. This is another way that the Volume 1 helps you save your energy for your swing.
If you’re looking for a shoe that’s extremely comfortable and light for those summer rounds, the TOMO Volume 1 is it. For me, it’s also been a great shoe to wear off the course. When you add in the value ($89) and TOMO’s use of eco-friendly products, it’s a win-win. Check them out HERE.
