To each his own I suppose, I want less shoe not more for myself. The Proto (at least for me) were a great balance between the two. The Lyt might be leaning a little too far in the wrong direction for me, but I own them now so I'll certainly use them.
I'm not sure what other options there really are at this point anyway. Got all winter to look at this point sadly.
I wasn't really complaining, as I said I found them quite comfortable. Just compared to the sensei I'm usually wearing they felt as stiff as plywood. Time will tell I suppose and if they are moving away from true minimalist shoes I wouldn't be surprised for the very reason you mentioned.
Has anyone tried the Lyt/Dry model? They had a sale on golftown daily deal a few weeks ago. I quite liked the look so I decided to buy them without having seen them in person or tried them on (none of the GT stores carry True in stock). I finally received them yesterday and headed over to the simulator to hit some balls and I have to say the soles are incredibly stiff.
They don't have any heel drop but I wouldn't call them minimalist shoes by any stretch. I can't...
All the time, it's great fun! I play 5-6 times per week and about half are match of some sort (at least for another couple weeks, stupid Canadian winter!) Favourites are:
Mostly it depends how many players there are. Often it's just 2 or 3 so match and 4-2-1 tends to be the most used.
I just drink water, I never have beer at the course. If it's really hot and humid (normal for southern Ontario summer) I usually bring 4 bottles with me. 1 of which is half frozen to keep the rest cold. I'll have finished them all by the end of my round.
If it's not too hot I will usually go for 1 bottle per 9 and 1 bottle at the turn.
I'm up in Guelph and if there was a course of that quality around here offering that deal I would jump all over it! We don't get great deals like they do south of the border, gotta take advantage when they do come up in my opinion.
That's a great looking shoe. I will definitely check those out. Ouch on the price tag though. This is my plan, I won't need new shoes this year but I will definitely need to pick something up for next season. Complicated by the fact that Golf Town (all of my local ones anyway) have stopped carrying TRUE. I won't buy without trying on first so may have to switch brands anyway.
