The shoes look stunning and are spikeless. From a look perspective, even though the shoes look decent, Mickelson’s iconic Masters winning celebration logo takes the design to another level. A sweet spot cushioning system adds comfort to the shoe and has been designed with a simple and casual style. 

Phil has been wearing these for quite some time now. He even wore these shoes during his sixth major championship victory at Kiawah Island earlier this year. Following that triumph, Phil became the oldest player to win a major championship title.
