Casual Spikeless Golf Shoes

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

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?

Or various other links around here.

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.

I am a huge fan of the FJ Contour Casuals.  They are so comfortable I have started wearing them as normal shoes.  http://www.footjoy.com/catalog/productview.asp?c=339

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. a1_smile.gif

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.
