I don't have photos bc I'm not sure how copyright works on this site, but JS has a new model on today. Looks like a
(gorgeous) cross between HOVR's and Spieth 3's. Any photos, info, etc would be wildly appreciated :)

    Did they look like the ones Fitzpatrick was wearing last week?

    I hope these turn out to be some cool new spikeless shoe.

    Looks like the Spieth 3 upper with a spikeless version of the HOVR Drive midsole

    Really does look like what you are describing, I could not catch a good look at the bottoms but only saw the putts on 18.

    Those shoes are out of bounds like many of Spieth’s tee shots with his driver!

    Next to "hilarious" & "totally creative" jokes from people who don't like them, thank you all for the info/pics. I'd like to see these hit the market, since I don't think HOVR midsole currently comes in a spikeless model.

    Thanks so much!! Here's hoping that this ("Spieth HOVR SL"?) is available by the time fall hits PA.

    I think what this likely means is that the Spieth 4 will have HOVR in them. He's probably testing out the cushioning system, or feels that it is much more comfortable than what's currently in the Spieth 3 so asked UA to build him a hybrid pair

    I hope you are both correct. I'd also add that if these are ready to go, let's hope UA releases them ASAP.
    Hey UA, it's ok to not have your logo/brand be so loud every once in a while.

    I wonder if UA has sold many Spieth shoes over the years. Doesn’t seem so.

    Depends where you play. If you spend the season at one or two small-town courses (my high school years), you're more likely to see New Balance Dad Premium Walking & Sitting Shoes or 7 year old 45$ FJ's than anything UA. If you hit the larger/championship courses, you'll see a few pair without looking too hard. If they didn't sell em, they wouldn't make em year after year. Right?

    My bet is they release these as the Spieth 3 HOVR, or just "Spieth HOVR" and do not explicitly release a Spieth 4.
    ..Unless it's part of his contract to have an updated signature shoe every year.
    No idea what UAs golf strategy is, but they need more than Spieth (and Fitz). They need multiple top guys wearing a premium model.
    For comparison, Nike is well placed to drop a Tour Premiere 2 as Koepka and Wolfs shoe (and they should disable the TW line and make a Tour Premier TW edition so Tiger fans can still have Tiger's shoe) The original TP was supposed to be a TW shoe, so I don't think this is too unrealistic. Ok that was a little bit of a tangent.

    Totally agree ^
    I have a casual theory here; there's a decent handful of tour players that wear UA apparel, but use FJ shoes. On the other side, GMac has never worn UA (that I'm aware of), yet he used Spieth 1's for a season or two. My theory is that they're still testing the golf market/tour presence, such that they don't want to make significant investments like "other brands" bc they aren't sure it really matters for sales. What they keep missing on is hype. Initially, they had this (2014-16ish) with the prototype shoes (would still drain my accounts to get a pair) and D1's, but they frustrated us by not stocking their s***!! They need to build hype. And they're trying, with the Curry range coming out soon.
    To summarize, I think they're still investigating novelty & hype vs traditional golf marketing (e.g., tour presence)

    I’m thinking the Spieth 3 didnt do so hot this season. I noticed most retailers and UA.com still has all 3 pairs of special edition Spieth 3’s and never even sold out. I’ve worn only ua golf shoes since the drive one and didn’t even have interest in these this year with all the cloth type material. Though I have been tempted to try the SL so these have me interested.

    I also stayed away from the 3's for the same reason; cloth stuff. My concern is spending 200, and they look dirty immediately...BUT, I'd buy a pair of the all black when they hit outlet. So far, the 3's and the prototypes are the only Spieth shoe I don't have (3x D1's, 3x Tempo tour, 1x Spieth1's, 1x Spieth2's, and the Mids)

    UA support has no knowledge of pics above. The lack of answers from their phone line or chat line is comical. I asked them if Matt and Jordan were making their own shoes now with scissors and glue.

    Jordan wasn’t the lead dog on tour this season so I’m curious if the UA hat logo was new over the weekend? I admittedly hadn’t noticed it all season. Possible oversight?

    PER "Ask Under Armour" twitter account, the shoes appear to be a Spieth exclusive for now. Shocker, I know.

    I noticed these as well watching the tournament and it was the first time that I saw a UA should and generally liked it. I would actually buy this shoe over appearance alone without trying it on.

    Let's remember; spieth didn't make it to East lake last year, yet we saw the Mids around this time/early fall. This year, I know Curry's stuff is being released, so my humble assumption is that we never see these SL's again. Doubt UA would release them at the same time as Curry's range. I have no inside knowledge though; anything is possible.

    I have the HOVR drives (the full leather/no woven) and even though I love my Nike kicks, the HOVR’s are THE most comfortable golf shoes I’ve ever worn by far.
