Says who?  Still rockin' TW13 here.  It's just like with running--you gotta rotate your shoes.  I try to play black shoes, white shoes, and brown shoes and rotate them.  Sometimes i might even treat myself and get a grey pair.

Not sure about the Nike thing. But I'm a big fan of the rotating shoes thing. I always bring at least 2 pair to any tournament, so I can rotate them. I think it makes my feet feel much better.... maybe it's psychological, not sure.

Not to keep harping on this, but I have owned a fair share of golf shoes. If you want quality, comfort and balance in your golf swing, there really is no better choice than True. 

I have to agree with you on this. I used to be an Ecco guy, but I've converted now.

Same here, I had my Adidas 360 for 6 years.  Got rid of them when they started to leak.  Nike’s I have cost me $25 and I’m going on season 2.  I prefer plastic replaceable spikes which is my top priority.  
 

I only have one pair of shoes and play 3 times a week.  Practice the other days so they get plenty of wear.

Just bought my third pair of Trues.  I really wouldn't consider anything else at this point.  They're the most comfortable shoes--not just golf shoes--I've ever worn.

I've been wearing True Originals for a couple months now, and I have to say they're the best golf shoes I've had. The zero drop sole took a little time to get used to since it feels a different. The heel is snug on my foot, so to get my heel to sit down on the sole without folding the inner liner on itself I use a shoehorn. Water proofing has been great so far, and my home course gets really sloppy in rainy season.

I'll probably buy one of the lighter knit models for when things dry out.

I've got Majors that I bought last year and a pair of Originals on the way.  I don't remember what my first pair was but they lasted a long time.

I must golf on some different golf courses. I hardly ever see folks playing in golf specific shoes. 

Most are wearing some sort of tennis shoe. That, or like myself, a comfortable, water proof,  pair of walking shoes, with a some what aggressive sole. Mine are also 3/4 toppers.

It's gotta be completely different in the desert.   I rarely see people golf w/o golf specific shoes in Michigan.

What do you guys think of spike-less shoes?

The old shoes I have certainly lose spikes after a while, but I've never tried to play in spike-less before.

 

Friends of mine have them and feel they are good but have slipped on wet grass. I for one want spikes which I can change, my shoes last a long time.

I was reluctant to try spikeless for a very long time. Finally tried some and they've become my primary choice.  They can slip, but have rarely.  And the new designs are much better at maximizing traction.  I have some Adidas Code Chaos coming in this Thurs, accordingly to Amazon.. so it's virtually a lock that a 64 is in store for the weekend.

They are far more comfortable on and (especially) off the grass.

I wore metal spikes in the twilight of their life.  The day I switched to soft spikes I slipped on two slopes near the tee box.  I learned quickly.  Haven't slipped since.  Though I have a friend who slips about 4 times a year, especially in the winter.  Especially when he's inputting info into his iphone as he leaves the green.

Yeah. I have to figure that they wouldn't encounter very much "dew' in the desert southwest!

    • Day 373 - January 16, 2021 Mach 3 stuff to demonstrate, not for me (I’ll do mine tomorrow), then in the few minutes I had between juniors and a group of five adults, hit about 15 balls. Less exaggerated than the previous time(s).
    • Good advice.  Lay a towel a couple of inches behind the ball when you practice.   It will be an eye opener.
    • Oh no...here comes the ‘ he was the greatest ball striker of all time’ talk....
    • Ok so I went out today and played a few holes.  Been videoing my swing and I’m seeing definite improvement.  I’m not flipping anymore and I’m starting to take divots after the ball.  On my good shots now I’m pulling in the ball left.  Any ideas why that would be?  I go to my pro for second lesson on Monday so I will get his input obviously.  Just curious if anyone else has had this issue.
    • I don't know much about endorsements, but despite that bit on the bottom, I don't think Thomas will be signing with Ralph Lauren again.
