Key Features and Benefits
- New clean toe profile preferred by the world’s best players

- New TourLock Cleat System
The TourLock cleat system provides low profile, green friendly performance and enhanced retention in all playing conditions.

- The 3D FoamCollar for COMFORT
The 3D FoamCollar moulds to your ankle for ideal comfort, fit and support. Locking your ankle in place minimizing any movement of the foot – a situation that can lead to discomfort and power-reduction during the swing.

- Re-Engineered SnugFit Tongue for FIT
The SnugFit tongue was reengineered for additional durability. Utilizing thin, soft, and breathable materials - including MicroVent technology- in order to properly conform to the top of your foot providing superb fit and an incredibly comfortable in-shoe environment.

- NitroThin 2.0 TPU Outsole for STABILITY
The all-new NitroThin 2.0 TPU outsole has been in development for several years, undergoing numerous rounds of testing and technical modifications. The result is a super thin-yet-strong chassis that frames the soft, FTF internal midsole, delivering the perfect combination of rigidity and flexibility for maximum on-course performance.

- Xtra-Thick FTF FitBed for Cushioning
In order to achieve the sleek, lowprofile look of D.N.A. the midsole was moved inside the shoe. FTF (Fine-Tuned Foam), a new proprietary cushioning material, is used throughout the interior midsole also known as the FitBed. In order to achieve in-shoe stability as well as premium cushioning, two densities of FTF were utilized - a firmer density for stability around the perimeter of the FitBed and a softer density in the heel and forefoot providing industry-leading in-shoe comfort. The New D.N.A. will be available in 7 colours including 4 in the BOA Lacing System.
