I recently bought a pair of Footjoy Pro SL and they aren't bad as far as comfort but they squeak and it is driving me nuts...lol. May have to go back to the True Linkswear myself.

My True knits squeak if I put my Sole inserts in them. Makes me crazy. I have high arches and the True inserts have no arch.

I cannot stand it..lol.  Little sounds like that just feel like they are poking my brain. It happens in vehicles too. My feet are as flat as a 2x4, so I'd have no problem there

Do you walk or ride?

I got maybe a season out of each pair (walking, alternating between two pairs).  Fortunately, they changed their styles a little a couple of years ago, so they didn't fit my feet as well anymore.  I've still got two pair left, but I only use them if I'm going to ride a cart or walk my 9-hole par executive course.  (Fortunately, because I went to a cheaper Footjoy.)

I walk. I also like to alternate between 2 pairs. 

I'm kind of surprised yours didn't do better. Were they the cage variety? Those things seem like they are bullet proof.

I've never tried those. But my Cage EVO's and Ecco Cage Pros are still going strong. They are both at least 3 years old. I'm a descent sized guy, I weigh about 185-190 pounds. So not the heaviest, but certainly not the lightest either.

I have a pair of ecco bioms and my toes get very cold in winter which is annoying. I’m mainly using them for work shoes when I’m out teaching.

I have four pairs of golf shoes, all of which have spikes:

  • Nike Lunar Fire
  • Nike Lunar Command 2
  • Nike Roshe G Tour
  • Adidas Tour360 XT

Nike doesn't make the Lunar Fire or Lunar Command 2 anymore, but I really like them. They don't make the Roshe G Tours anymore either, but I was able to get a brand new pair off EBay for pretty cheap a few months ago. Highly recommend them if you can find them - they're very comfortable, they look great, and the sole is nice (not too tall). The Tour version of the Roshes are the ones with leather uppers and spikes. (They make a non-Tour version without spikes and with a cloth upper.)

If you can't find those, I also like the Air Zoom Victory Tour models.

I don't like the Adidas shoes and have basically stopped wearing them. The sizing was weird (I'm very consistently an 11.5 in all Nike shoes, but I had to go to an 11 wide in those Adidas shoes), and the heel is really, really thick. Bizarrely so. I honestly don't know how their Tour players wear them. I've had Adidas golf shoes before and liked them fine, so I'm not sure why these ones are so different. I would stay away.

If @xrayvizhen is looking for spiked shoes then in my mind there is no question. He should buy Eccos. Ideally, one of the cage varieties. They pretty much last forever and a day. 

I've had good luck with Under Armour. I've had good luck with Nikes and with Footjoys. I've also had less than great experiences with those as well. The only two brands I seem to ALWAYS be satisfied with is Ecco and TRUE. 

If you want a SPIKED shoe, that will be comfortable and last a long time Ecco Cage shoes are a can't miss. 

I wear nothing but Ecco dress shoes for work.  Phenomenal shoe but the golf shoes kill my feet.  It drives me crazy as the rest of the Eccos are so nice.  

I have found Footjoy Pro SL spike less as a very comfortable and great traction.

Never tried these. But they make some pretty bold claims. Right there on the website it says putting these shoes on will take you from an 18 handicap to an 11 handicap.....

$200? No thanks. And Faldo would endorse Canada Goose turds as beneficial to golf courses if the geese could pay him.

They will add at least 12 yards to your drive!

This season I purchased my third pair of Foot Joy Classic spiked shoes. I find they last for years, (I guess that depends on how much you play, I play like once or trice a week but not in the winter). For me they are very comfortable and I like the classic look, plus the price is right.

    • I think this is the key comparison. Why do men get an average of 23% higher ratings but have a purse that's 127% higher. Granted that purse is the US Open, not an average like that ratings number is. But my impression just from watching over the years is that the average men's purse is nowhere close to only 23% higher than the average women's purse. World Surf League's equal prize money stand for men and women The World Surf League has announced an equal prize money structure for male and female competitors, becoming the first US-based sports... WSL events are as or nearly as frequent as (L)PGA events.
    • Not really. I don’t know if you’ve heard of Jim Venetos...we discussed his swing on this site. I swing from a position that I hold...closed stance and remain quite still on the back swing. So honestly I’m pretty consistent with my driver and figured a little longer shaft would give me some more yards. My accuracy was a little less as when I did make a mistake ( like opening too much on my downswing) my cut would be a little more drastic than with the shorter length. 
    • But that has been the rule in the LPGA since late 2010, more than 10 years.  The NCAA already allows transgender players to compete in women's sports, with some stipulations.  I don't see the Executive Order as changing much of what goes on in women's golf.
    • But this doesn't affect golf or the LPGA Tour. LPGA players vote to allow transgender women golfers LPGA players have voted to allow transgender players to compete on tour in response to a lawsuit filed by a California woman who had her sex changed five years ago. That's ten years ago. They scrapped the "female at birth" clause in 2010.
    • Thank you.  Truer words were never spoken.  But if I cut out golf, cocktails, girls and coffee I'd be a wealthy man... but where's the fun in that???
