Do you play in golf shoes, running shoes, Crocs or ? - Page 3

post #37 of 56

If I'm on the range practicing short game, or playing a Par 3 course, I will sometimes wear cross-training shoes. Otherwise, I play in golf shoes - the spikes really help, especially on hilly lies.

Started wearing Kanadia running shoes. Only problem to me is the toe support - no protection at that part of the shoe. But the grip is adequate, imo. Comfortable for me -

I have worn tennis shoes and golf shoes.  Obviously, I enjoy golf shoes much better.  I have seen quite a few people playing in Crocs or sandals and I was shocked.  I could not imagine doing that because I'd probably bust my rear.  But a few guys played very well in them.

I play in slip resistant kitchen shoes. I cook for a living and often go straight to and from the course, and as a result have found them to be quite effective. I've never found golf shoes very comfortable for walking, and I always walk. I've also never really understood why people play in spikes anyway. If you're swinging so hard that you really think you would fall without spikes, I'd say you're swinging too hard. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BJsZcGatEo

I played the first couple years just wearing sneakers. When I finally got a pair of golf shoes my scoring average went down a bunch. It makes a difference. It's not that you're going to fall down without them, it's that even a small amount of movement or slippage can totally screw up clean ball striking, especially on damp or wet grass.

If its really dry out, and the ground is firm, I prefer to play in cross trainers, they're just more comfortable. The rest of the time I play in golf shoes.

Golf shoes always

I plan on changing it up next year, i really like golf shoes that are spikeless and more mobility in the foot area. I hope the minimalist trend continues in shoes for golf.

I am probably the minority but I prefer traditional golf shoes, actually like the way the shoes feel, the support etc. I've played in my running shoes on nice, dry days when there isn't a chance I will step in anything wet. But it only takes a few trips to the bunker to trash them. I bought some Adidas golf shoes that were pretty close to a running shoe earlier this year and those weren't very durable. In just a few month water stains on the mesh. That's a big part of it for me, will the shoe stand up to what the course offers. My cheapie pleather Nike's keep me dry and it's easy to get the mud and goose crap off of the shoe. I intend to play a lot of early spring golf and will be buying myself a pair of nice DryJoys for xmas.

Running shoes are fairly common for me during casual rounds. People think its funny, but I've never really been convinced that golf shoes help all that much.  (Wet days might be an exception)

Golf shoes always, range and course, which includes Byte golf sandals when its hot and I'm riding. I like not wearing socks when its hot but the Bytes don't have enough support for me to walk 18 in them.

Golf shoes.  There are so many types now you can wear golf shoes year round.  Who wears crocs to a golf course?  Bite shoes were so comfortable, I had a few pair.  I have Adidas ones now.  Golf shoes go from $50 to $500.  Wearing them on the course and the the range helps for feel.

I'm with you Dave, I like to wear spike less shoes to the range, but on the course I prefer the Adidas AdiPURE and FootJoy XPS-1 shoes.  The course I play is hilly and I like having the support of these types of shoes and real spikes.

Golf shoes, and I like shoes with support. I tried some on some of the new True Linkswear, and I did not like them. In their defense they were half a size too small. They sure were comfortable to walk around in, but I didn't like the feel during the swing at all.  I just ordered some Footjoy XPS-1's, they are more my style.

Golf shoes! I would never even think about wearing anything other than golf shoes.

Golf Shoes always for practice and play, even par 3's. I questioned my instructor last year that I was playing worst than I was practicing and did not have the same contact with the ball, in the beginning I practiced with sneakers. He told me sneakers do not have the same support and in many cases are different in height than golf shoes, so whatever I play in I practice in, trying to keep something consistent, plus they keep my feet dry.
