When it comes to golf shoes, performance is paramount — but having a stylish shoe that can transition from a day on the links to a night on the town is a major plus. That’s why Johnston & Murphy designed the XC4® H1-Luxe Hybrid to excel at both. It’s crafted from soft, waterproof leathers (with fully waterproof bootie construction inspired by hiking boot designs). And in terms of comfort, the XC4® features a multi-density footbed with memory-foam cushioning and arch support, a lightweight, shock-absorbing EVA midsole and a stretch neoprene collar. Plus, Johnston & Murphy’s Smart Degree Technology™ is built right in — so your feet are always the right temperature.
