New golf shoes!

34 posts in this topic

Well on the 13th hole yesterday morning my current pair of Nike Lunar golf shoes began leaking from morning dew. They were a tee gift 5 years ago, so its time for new shoes anyways. I prefer to stay with spikes and im leaning towards the FJ DNA, TW2013 model, or maybe find some discounted last years FJ model shoe. Im partial to the really sleek look of the FJ DNA or Icon shoe, however for $189-$230 Im sure I could get two pairs of discounted shoes that will be fine. I am always teetering on spending a lot of money and somehow try to always outweigh the pros vs cons.

Anyone experience either? Your thoughts?

I know you are looking for spikes, but maybe you should try on a pair of True Linkswear.  I bought a pair about 3 weeks ago.  They are easily the most comfortable shoe I have ever had.  I wear them daily at the office, and to play golf.  They are also water-proof.

I played one morning in the wet/dew.  By the ninth hole, my playing partner's shoes were soaked.  My were still dry as can be.

I got the "Stealth" model for $75.

Ditch the spikes. My new Ecco shoes are amazingly comfortable and have plenty of grip.

I thought the same thing.  I actually bought the True Linkswear because I needed a brown, kinda dressy shoe for the office.  I read good reviews on it as far as comfort, and they were water proof as well.  I had not planned on wearing them as my go-to golf shoe.  When I tried them though, I did not want to take them off.  They really are that comfortable.

I would be cautious of getting any model that uses the "PINS" spike system. I've heard lots of complaints of those type spikes falling out. If you go with a spike less model, no problem obviously.

I agree. I just can't get with the looks of the True shoes. I have the TW13s, they are super comfy, waterproof, and awesome looking.

Know how you feel. The new lunar 2s look really sleek too. Last year I went to some soft spike and am really not liking them. For me there is not enough grip so i am currently shopping around for some DNAs too. Amazing shoe

Kpaulhus - I'm with you on the spikes, I just prefer it. Haven't felt comfortable when trying on any of the other styles. I currently have the Nike Lunar, and they are the most comfortable golf shoe I've worn. I had the Adidas Powerband prior to that, and was pretty happy with them as well. I figure why fix what isn't broken... So I'd probably stick with the Lunars next time around (although I'd probably still compare to other shoes at that point just to perform my due diligence haha) Good luck, let us know what you wind up with and what you think of them.

Truelinkswear, nothing better than a low profile zero drop shoe. It was very wet out Sunday, didn't slip once. Spikeless doesn't have any problems with wet conditions. I can wear them anywhere, no changing shoes after golfing.

I like to throw on sandals after my round so my toes get some sun and offset the sock tan lol!

Whenever I need new shoes I always find myself opting for a year or two old Adidas model. The tour 360 line if their shoes of the equivalent top of the line shoe from 2-3 years ago is always on sale on my local store so i can get a high quality pair of shoes for <£60 which i can never seem to find a better option than.

But for the summer i am considering a spikeless, lighter and hopefully cooler pair. The truelinkswear shoes do look very nice, and I have seen a couple of pairs going cheap of eBay.

I have the FJ DNA shoes and they truly are everything people have been raving about! I absolutely love them, so comfortable and stable and having the spike right at the front if the shoe, in my opinion, makes a big difference when it comes to stability and control. Great shoe if you can bear the pain of paying for them :) Regards Mailman

some people dont slip, others do.  i cant wear my spikeless shoes (footjoy m project or nike lunar ascend) on wet days without slipping.  i can only wear them on dry days.

I have to agree that I don't care for the look of truelink golf shoes. They look clownish to me. I am playing a pair of adidas spikeless and do occasionally slip when I am swinging out of them. We have a adidas outlet here and I can often score a reasonably comfortable and decent priced shoe.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
