The Under Armour HOVR Drive 2 golf shoes, in our opinion, are the best golf shoes of 2022 and this is because of their superb stability and incredible comfort.

With HOVR technology, specially-made spikes, footbed support and midfoot comfort, it is no surprise that these Under Armour golf shoes grew so popular in 2022.

They come with spiked and spikeless versions and they have got varying technologies involved. However, they provide similar types of performance.

What are the Under Armour HOVR Drive 2 golf shoes all about?

The UA HOVR Drive 2 golf shoes come with a breathable microfibre upper and they also have an Under Armour HOVR moulded EVA footbed.

The microfibre upper helps your shoes to cool and dry all year round and this is why they are such a reliable pair of shoes which will perform over an extended period of time.

The spiked model comes with UA Rotational Resistance spikes and like most of Under Armour's market rivals, these shoes come with a one-year waterproof guarantee.

The Rotational Resistance spikes help to prevent your feet from twisting too much on the ground during your swing. This helps to increase stability in your motion.

The spikeless model comes with an Under Armour IntelliKnit upper with a HOVR midsole and a lightweight and durable TPU outsole. Again, the spikeless model comes with a one-year waterproof guarantee.

The HOVR midsole technology delivers maximum comfort to your feet when you are walking the course and it also helps to deliver maximum energy return.

The HOVR technology also supports natural movement in your foot throughout your swing and provides a zero-gravity feel which helps to eliminate the negative effects of impact.

The Verdict

The waterproof performance of these knitted shoes is particularly impressive and their durability is what has helped them become so popular in 2022.

For a knitted shoe with no spikes in the spikeless model, we were extremely impressed with its stability and reliability. You can trust them to perform and keep you steady in wet and harsh conditions.

The Under Armour HOVR Drive 2 golf shoes could last you for a number of years and this is a testament to their performance qualities and durability. 

This product cost £139.95 when they were released earlier this year which, in our view, represented good value for money as they deliver on all fronts.

When you step on to the golf course each weekend, you need a pair of shoes that deliver good a energy return and top performance and this is what you'll find with the Under Armour HOVR Drive 2 golf shoes.
