I think flat Brim hats look rather silly but Im not gonna look at anyone sideways becasue they have one on. When Im on the course the last thing on my mind is what the next grown man is wearing.
Thanks for pointing out that they are Nikes and made for the rain. I couldn't tell that myself, even though I found them on Golfsmith and took the time to post the picture.
That being said, I don't care if they're made by Adidas and they're made for the month of MARCH only, they're freakin UGLY and they look like basketball shoes. Yes they have urban appeal, and yes they are ugly in my opinion. And yes, I believe that they appeal to the same person that an oversized flat bill hat appeals to.
I know plenty of impressionable young golfers at the courses I play who are growing up to be exceptional gentlemen and not dressing like rap stars with oversized flat bill hats and giant high top sneakers.
