Casual Spikeless Golf Shoes

22 posts in this topic

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?

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.

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.

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.

    • I don't think we're at the point where all that stuff can really be integrated quite yet. Too many competing standards and stuff right now. Soon. Not yet.
    • Of the six military guys I asked about it, five felt it was exactly the kind of thing they fought to protect and had no problem with it. The sixth said he thought it was disrespectful but said so is killing people and blowing shit up and the military does that itself. Have you polled enough of the military to see whether it was seen as disrespectful by the majority?
    • Of course the outrage is after the fact.  As it is with most things.  Are you stating you would have to personally witness something as it happens to be outraged or disagree with it?   I don't believe it is something that can be "proved" either.  I don't think it needs to be.  If the majority of the military feels it is disrespectful, than I tend to agree with that.
    • My house is dumb as a brick.  And 2x4 posts.  And drywall.  And paint.
    • No. Liking the entirety of your country, your government, etc. is not a binary state. You don't even like everything about your wife. Or children. Or golf. @Gunther, never one to disappoint with that crap. More below… You never give people enough credit. Guess what? You can support a person's right to protest while completely disagreeing with whatever they're protesting. It isn't. But your constant attempts to pigeonhole do more to divide than they do to gain understanding, find common ground, and discuss things intelligently. I'll call it like I see it - you're intellectually lazy when it comes to anything political. That's why I think you pigeonhole everything into "liberal" and "correct" (in your opinion). And hey, I tend to vote Republican. We're probably more alike than you imagine, politically… except that I try to look at things separately, when I do take the time to consider it, while you seem to want to just pigeonhole and spout. Others have said it, but you can't "prove" that it's disrespectful. It's just your opinion. And anyone else's. At the risk of making a post that's not "on topic" enough that I'd moderate it if it weren't my own post (though mods are and always have been free to moderate my posts as they see fit)… my thoughts on the matter include: I don't think it's disrespectful to sit. I think you should probably have a reason to sit, because if you garner attention for sitting you'd better have an answer as to why, not just "I don't know, stuff sucks here right now." He seems to have had a reason, so okay. Sitting is no different, IMO, than burning a flag. Protesting in front of Capitol Hill. If a "regular person" sits, nobody will care. A few people might say "what a jerk" in their minds, but they're not going to care if he has an issue. They will if a celebrity sits, so he used the fame to get his point across. I'm not entirely sure what he was protesting, so I don't know if I agree or disagree with him. I know people who support gay marriage but who oppose welfare. Or the opposite. IMO, things are rarely so clearly divided along party lines. I know military people who think what he did was terrible, and others who think it was a great expression of the freedom their fighting and work has allowed for. As usual, since it's politics, I don't give it a whole ton of thought. But what little thoughts I've given it are right there.
