Following the major success of the Spieth and the Spieth 2, three-time major winner Jordan Spieth and the Under Armour design team have worked together to produce a one of the most technologically advanced golf shoes on the market, the Spieth 3.

The Spieth 3 is the lightest weight Spieth golf shoe to date, while maintaining stability and structural support. Jordan worked with UA’s research team to determine three must-haves that could not be compromised in the construction of the Spieth 3.

TRACTION TO SUPPORT THE SWING

When a golfer swings, the forefoot rotates laterally and the heel rotates in the medial direction. When the swing comes back to impact, the foot wants to twist out from under the golfer, resulting in foot slippage. The Spieth 3 uses patented rotational resistance and traction, both vertically and horizontally, to keep the feet on the ground as long as possible. The golfer is able to use the ground for leverage to power the swing and prevent slipping, ensuring maximum control and minimizing power loss.

COMFORT WHILE WALKING ON THE GREEN

At Jordan’s request, the overall weight of the Spieth 3 is significantly lighter than past models. To provide the most comfort and stability when walking the course, the Spieth 3 has an upper with microfiber in the heel and a smartly woven jacquard in the forefoot.

WATERPROOFING FOR ANY ELEMENTS

Jordan is in his shoes for up to 10 hours at times, so the Spieth 3 was given a waterproof and breathable membrane designed to release perspiration while keeping water from entering. Jordan wanted a zero-distraction shoe, built to perform in any climate, and he got it.

"The Spieth 3 is the best one yet. No question about it. It's easy for me to be really excited about it. I can definitely feel the difference, and seeing the data to back up the work the Under Armour team put in confirms it." - Jordan Spieth
 
The Spieth 3 will be available for purchase on February 1, 2019 on UA.com.
