The Ashworth Cardiffs are great. They look great, they feel great and they perform well too.
Offered in a range of colours, the Cardiffs offer quality and style. The detail on the shoe is typical of Ashworth and the suade/leather combination works really nicely.
Whilst they may not offer the same stability and traction as a more traditional shoe, I haven't noticed any loss in performance. However, I tend to wear them in dry, hard conditions.
I have found myself wearing these more away from the course than on. In fact, after wearing them for a couple of months, I bought the exact same pair again. That is a first and proof of how much I like them.
The only drawback I see if that wearing them off the course can wear down the rubber studded sole quicker than you may expect. But if you use them as a second pair for links courses or dry days, you'll hardly notice.
If you fancy joining the Street-shoe revolution, you can't go wrong with the Ashworth Cardiff.
