@iacas thoughts on the Knit II?

Very comfortable shoe but, I am not a favor of the high back. It will take my lower ankle time to adjust. I am not sure I would wear them golfing or at least not 18. 

Overall super comfortable and good looking. I just don’t like the higher back as it can irritate the back of my ankles if wearing low socks.

The Original still is the Champ in my eyes.

The Original is a very good shoe. Not the best in hot weather, as it can get a little sweaty (that's just logical - if you want a waterproof leather shoe).

And of the Knits, the original is a very good shoe, too.

I see what you mean about the higher back, but it's pretty soft IMO. Do you wear a sock that goes up that high, or is it rubbing skin? I don't like a high back, either, but if I'm being specific I don't like a high back that's more solid or firmer. These are like socks, very "huggy" without digging in or rubbing much.

The Knits are some of my favorite shoes. I wear them everywhere. Teaching. Playing, when it's at least half dry. Errands. Going out to do anything. They're the first shoe I grab, and the only shoes that I generally have inside the house. The old Knit "I" models will likely be relegated strictly to errand shoes, though, or teaching maybe, as I've worn the tread away.

These are the replacements, in spirit, for the original Sensei shoes, which I also loved. Perhaps even more than the Tours.

For golf, the Originals win. For everything, the Knits and the Knit Its win, for me, hands down.

Funny you say that, I wore them during a summer round, thought the waterproofing was crap, it wasn’t. My feet were sweating that much.

As for the Knit II, i wear a real low cut sock. Very comfortable shoe. I wear to the office and errands. Got them during Christmas so no golf in them.

The small stitching in the back pull rubs my lower ankle.

I get a little of the rubbing from the LUX Knits, but there's an actual "bump" in those shoes.

    • Shot 100 yesterday.  I can tolerate that for now as it's just my second round after an extended layoff. Overall, I feel like I hit a handful of good shots and struggled from some inconsistency and a few bad decisions. It also didn't help that it was windy all day (about 20mph).
    • My "pairing up" story.  One evening I was out as a single.  On the 2nd hole a guy drove into me.  The green hadn't cleared in front of me so I had to wait.  When the a**hole walked up I let him have it!  He was larger than me and muscular and possibly could have pummeled me, but I was pissed.  So now the two of us are waiting for the green to clear.  Told him he could join me if he wanted to, but I wouldn't let him play through.  So he joined up.  He apologized without being prompted.  Turns out he worked in the same building as I did.  Ended up actually being an inattentive nice guy.  And we became friends.  And played again.  The best revenge was whipping his butt every time we played.
    • I am sort of easy on this, everything changes with the times. The only things I dislike are wearing a hat backwards and baggy pants. Also not a fan of collarless shirts.
    • I don't mind being paired up; I have met some real nice people this way. Since I end up wanting to golf and most of my friends don't play, I would just call the course and say "hi, I am just a single golfer, can I play today?", and they would just say to come out here and we'll get you out. So not usually a problem. In my way of thinking, if I don't book a foursome, I am at the mercy of the course anyway as to where and when they want to put me and that's perfectly ok, I accept that. The main thing is, I get to play!!! 
    • You should get it pretty quickly. I ordered mine on 2/15 and it was delivered 2/20. They're based out of AZ, and I'm in SoCal, so the shipping was pretty quick to get to me. You may experience an extra couple of days depending on where you live. Also, if you're looking for a different shaft for it, you could always look at getting something from The Golf Works. They have pretty much any shaft you'd want as well as the PXG adapter. I believe they can install the adapter for you as well for a small fee.
