Hi-Tec seems to have put a lot of thought into the new CDT Power golf shoe and this has resulted in a very competent product. First off like all Hi-Tec golf shoes they are very comfortable. The sole is very well padded, even though it is a bit chunky looking. Hi-Tec's excellent policy of supplying a wide fit and regular fit insole is continued in this model and we think that is a great idea. The exterior styling of the shoe is more classy than previous models, especially around the arch of the foot. Using these shoes over several rounds and in torrential rain we can vouch for the Event membrane lining which provides excellent breathability and waterproofing. Hi-Tec's main pitch for the CDT Power shoes is the sole design and soft spike configuration. Certainly the custom designed Stinger softspikes provide excellent traction and are very comfortable to use, even on firmer links courses. The sole of the shoe is very rigid compared to previous Hi-Tec shoes and does provide great support and resistance to twisting, which Hi-Tec claim should increase distance and power. Whether it actually did or not was difficult to tell, but they are certainly of Tour calibre and compared to other less well structured shoes we feel they will definitely benefit your game and your feet!

Having been a bit of a Hi-Tec sceptic I think these CDT Power shoes have moved them into the serious players market. The design matches the contemporary with the modern well, although the soles, which are not as chunky as previous Hi-Tecs, are still on the large side when viewed from above. However this does mean that they are very comfortable indeed and the new sole design provides great stability and support. The Stinger spikes are very good and were much easier to walk on hard ground than normal softspikes. Overall a good alternative to the bigger names and I would recommend them.
