Kikkor shoes?

11 posts in this topic

I've done a search and there is limited reference to them that I've found in the forums. My question is have many here played in them and how do they feel? I'm considering ordering a pair, I really like the styles and color schemes they offer. Not to bad with the prices on some of them either. These are the ones I'm considering the most Thanks ahead of time for any feedback http://www.kikkor.com/products/Eppik-2-Breathe-Blue-Swede?pageID=f79af2d7-f052-4f08-05bd-e0b561e89da0&sortBy;=DisplayOrder

I play in a friends member-guest and one of the guys who plays there wears them. He has 2-3 pairs. He likes them because they have a casual look, he said there were no more/less comfortable than most of the other golf shoes he wore. Sorry I can't help more.

I just received the pair i ordered online, they look good, they are comfortable but i have yet to play a round with them because of some small weather problem (3 feet of snow). They advise to order half a size longer than your normal shoe size, was true for me.

I was wondering if that was actually necessary with the half size larger. Thanks for letting me know

Yea that's how I had heard about them, I've been pretty impressed with the appearance of his line of shoes so far

I've been told there's a brand ( I believe Nike? ) that if you were them without the spikes in them it will tear up the receivers where you screw them in. Can you ask your friend if that's the case for his Kikkors? The shoes look really sharp and I would want to be able to wear them around off the course occasionally. Thank you in advance

Most of the new shoes look like you can't replace the spikes. Some of them you can, but most look like they are permanent spikes like most of the casual golf shoes now (ie Ecco, foot joy, True)

I rechecked the website and it shows the spikes are replaceable, I'm just waiting to hear back from their customer service if they can be worn casually off a course without damaging the spike receivers

I've been emailing Scott at Kikkor, he said they have the same problem it will tear up the receiver if you walk without the spikes. I made a joke about giving me a discount for buying 2 pair, one for play and one for casual wear and he's checking to see what kind of deal they can work out for me :)

I have a pair of these Kikkor shoes . I love the casual look, they are the most comfortable golf shoes I have owned, the price is excellent. They don't have removable spikes but after two seasons and only walking I haven't noticed any significant wear.

I would definitely recommend Kikkor.

    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      You're exactly right. At first I meant we were told to re tee if we could not find it, meaning unplayable stroke and distance, same as a lost ball but obviously you must call the correct penalty. But that makes no sense because it would just be a free drop if certain the ball was in. But what ACTUALLY occured was because of the cold and forecast of pouring rain (which happened) they made an odd rule where we could re tee without penalty if we saw the ball go in. So I did not do the free re tee, which someone in the group did a few holes before, beause we were not sure, AND we didn't rake it out, so it was declared a lost ball. But the other kid who did not do a re tee because he thought he saw his ball clear the sand, took a free drop without finding it, all within the rules. The bunker was on the right side of the fairway so my line was further and to the right of the kid who took the drop, who hit it straight and short. All i can vividly remember is us standing in the pouring rain and cold, dragging rakes through a bunker full of deep water, and finding every other golf ball! Crazy!  I think you got to the real oddity where an unidentified unplayable is the same penalty as a lost ball, but called something different. Unless there is some difference? I guess if it is found before you hit the next shot you would not be able to play it where it lies in the unplayable scenario, granted you did not declare the lost ball lost yet (then no penalty). Is there any other difference? I guess both you can tee it up after the penalty, and you still can't go more than 2 clubs behind the tee markers in the unplayable scenario I believe. Wonder if there are any other differences between lost ball and unplayable but unidentified.
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      I think we are talking about a couple of different things.  First, I don't really understand the "local rule" you were given in your tournament with regards to the flooded bunkers.  When you say re tee, did they tell you to play your stroke over with no penalty.  Can't do that. As far as declaring a ball unplayable, this is different than taking relief for Casual Water.  You may in fact declare a ball unplayable without finding it, but in this case, you must play your next stroke from the spot where you played your last.  (Stroke and Distance)  If you think about it, its the same procedure as if you were to lose your ball.  Under the ball unplayable rule there is a one stroke penalty. Iacas gave you the rule for taking relief from casual water in a bunker.  In order to do this, it must be known or virtually certain the ball is in the casual water.

      @coop6. You're right about opening up too fast. I should have worded differently. It's not that your body isn't moving where it needs to move. It's that your arms aren't moving with your body enough. Or you might say the body isn't inluencing the motion of the arms. Try the Dufner towel under arms drill, it's an extreme drill but it will help this. Your body rotation has to help turn the club back to square, that is the whole idea, feel the body and upper arms turning the club back. Once that happens you won't have to flip the club shut right after impact.

      There is no such thing as a strong grip. There is a stronger left hand or stronger right hand. If you strengthen the right hand grip this will help close the face. If you weaken the left hand grip this will also help close the face, though less so. Stand taller and flatten the swing out until you are older. Don't try to be so bent over at the hips at impact. Take lessons so you don't get hurt swinging this way. Your shoulders should turn level through the ball. Like I said don't increase the bend from the hips at impact.
