Casual Spikeless Golf Shoes

22 posts in this topic

i would like to buy a pair of casual golf shoes like those made by Ecco, Footjoy, Ashworth, Nike, Adidas, etc.

Can anyone give me some recommendations on a casual spikeless golf shoe which offers very good comfort, very good stability, and very good traction?

Just bought the Ecco Biom Hybrids and they are very comfortable.  Haven't taken them on the course yet, but I don't think traction will be an issue.  My home course isn't very hilly so it won't be a great test anyway.  Also might try out the True Stealths if the Ecco's work out well on the course.

The Nike Lunar Ascend shoes http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12614248&cp;=4406646.4413987.4417989 are very comfortable and provide good traction. I had to go a half size larger than my other shoes (FootJoys). The only negative is the fact that they are not waterproof.

Here in Florida, I have to have waterproof golf shoes with all the water they have around many of the courses. When we get a heavy rain, a lot of the rough areas get kind of muddy.

The FJ Contour Casuals are waterproof.

I believe the Nike Lunar Prevail are the waterproof version of the Ascends.  Same sole as the Ascend but 2 year limited waterproof warranty.

TRUEs are the only ones I've tried, therefore the only ones I can endorse. :)

Well these are pretty casual. treksport.JPG

I've played golf this spring with these Vibram treksports. The feeling is almost barefoot. Great for improving your weight shift.

I have a pair of 2011 True Tours that I love. By far the most comfortable golf shoe I've worn. Your closer to the ground and a bit more on your heels than in traditional shoes/golf shoes, which took some getting used to. But after a couple holes, they felt great. I felt that the grip was pretty good, I only slipped once or twice, and that was while walking down a somewhat steep, damp hill. Not once have I slipped while swinging with them, even in damp conditions.

I actually just ordered a second pair that should be here Wednesday.

I've got a pair of the ECCO, Oakley Ripcord and FootJoy Contour Casual.  All of them are great can't really put one ahead of the other, I swear by the spikeless shoes in general, but these 3 were the most comfortable of the ones I tried.  The ECCO were the most expensive, the Oakley the least expensive and have a 2 year warranty.

Anyone have comments on the Footjoy Contour Casual golf shoe?  I am leaning towards it, but would appreciate additional comments on that shoe by those who have worn it.

I recently bought the Ashworths.

Very comfortable shoes...And I tend to have "issues" with finding comfort in footwear.

Grip seems good, but my plan is to only use them on nice(r) days with traditional golf shoes on not-so-nice days.

How do you like these kicks?  I'm in the market to buy another pair of black golf shoes and have been looking at these.

I have some FootJoys MyJoys from a few years back and they feel great. Only really use them for putting around or going out though.

I like them alot, they are more comfortable than the Street Premieres and are waterproof.  I don't recommend them in rain or on muddy courses but on a nice day they are my first choice out of all my golf shoes.

Thanks for the response newtogolf.  I'm going to order a pair.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      Hit my first 100+ in 9 or 10 games - 101 (low 90s hitter of late) Which really pissed me off because before today, I would have said the only reason I'm struggling to shoot under 90 was because of my driver getting me into jail all too often, Today was the best day I've ever had with a driver, not once in the woods, hit 11FW in regulation with an average of around 220/25, which is an absolute first for me by a mile. However 52 putts, lost count of how many triple putts I made - off the charts! In my defense I've never played on such challenging greens, also a first for me, still no excuse.

      Hi, Dan. There was a brief thread on that here (easy to miss as the volume of topics can get pretty high around at times): I just played a round today at a fairly popular county-run course (Twin Lakes), and I only see a couple GG rounds there per week. Surprised me, as I thought I might see a few per day or something. Since I play in the mornings typically, I doubt I'll have the luxury of a pin being marked prior to my playing that hole! After 4 rounds entered, here's how I stack up against 15-handicappers: GG gives me an 18 index, so let's see.... 6 strokes lost in driving and putting. 2.7 gained in approaches/short game.  That's 3.3 lost compared to a 15-handicap. Math works out. Also seems about right- my irons have been decent, as has my play around the greens. Driving erratic (too many penalties), and I've lost focus on way too many first putts to give me too many three-putts.    
    • Your best golfing bargain
      E-bay   200.00 fairway wood new for 50.00  sitting in my closet till the one I use breaks or gets a time out.
    • Rib fracture
      I haven't been playing but just because of my schedule. I'm actually about to go play a little executive course in about an hour or so. I feel pretty confident because it never hurts in the gym anymore. I hope you feel 100% soon, try to give it more rest than you think it needs. Also make sure you are getting proper nutrients, someone with a broken bone may want to look into bone supplements because of the need for additional calcium. I took this pill called bone restore or something to make sure I got an adequate amount of vitamin D, calcium, etc
    • Reading Greens
      I passed on Aimpoint. That doesn't mean that was the correct decision - I could probably use the skills there. Instead, I just created my own pre-shot routine, just like with any other shot. I won't go through my whole routine, but basically when it comes to reading breaks I squat down and the most important part of it (for me) is me determining which was the green drains rainwater. All greens have to drain. I then take a very wide look at the green in my peripheral vision and match it with the trees in any treelines around to have an offset in my vision to determine the magnitude of any slops/breaks. Then I just imagine lightly tossing a ball in my mind and seeing where I think it would go. Works for me, for now. May not work for you. I just realized that when I focused hard on a line and where I was going to put it that's when I would greatly misread breaks. Putting has a huge negative tunnel-vision influence on me.
