In need of New Golf Shoes!

30 posts in this topic

In dyer need of some new golf shoes! I'm probably going to need something that holds up well in rain, comfort would be nice as well.  Looking to spend a hundred dollars or less. My grandpa has been suggesting some dryjoys but I'm open to anything!

Thanks for all input!

Nike Lunar Control.

Best shoe I've ever owned. Hard wearing, look good, waterproof, and VERY comfortable indeed.

I hear great things about Ecco Street and True shoes on here as well but personally I like my golf shoes to resemble golf shoes.

True Linkswear Tours are super comfortable, waterproof, work very very well. The "barefoot" feel makes reading greens easier Really does. $140.

True Linkswear or Ecco street style. The latter is more expensive, but also more comfortable (for me anyways).

Thanks for the replies! I'll check out all of em after practice later. Looking for something aesthetically pleasing as well but not top top priority. Leaning towards Nike or FJ. Haven't heard much about the true links wears yet..

Agreed, I bought the 2011 model off ebay for 1/2 the price of the '12's, and have to say they are the best golf shoe i've ever worn... I want to get a similar pair of sneakers they are so comfortable... Friends swear by the adidas 360's/ATV's and i've tried them on and they seem comfy too, i'd go one of those two directions...

I just got a pair of FootJoy Tours, that were on sale at Golfsmith for $107 (reg $167). They are very comfortable, and love the spike design, very stable.

If you're on a budget, I just got a pair of Adidas Powerband Grind on sale at golfetail.com for $55.  They're en route now, so I'll have to post more when they're actually in hand, but it's a pretty good deal (reg price $100)

Listen to Grandpa!

You'll get some great shoes and the added benefit of letting him know that you value his opinion!

    • No offense, but in my opinion this makes you unprepared to discuss it.
    • Every year, something is changed in a club design.  The real differences are minimal, assuming your current clubs are from within the last 10 or so years (just throwing out a random number).

      However, I just got upgraded to the Ping G driver from the Ping G30, and the big change I noticed is the face of the driver has a bit more friction on the G (at least as I understand it).  What it seems to do is reduce side spin, while retaining normal-ish back spin (I use the low-spin tec version).  When I miss-hit a drive with my old driver vs the newer one, I see noticeably less slice or hook with the newer version.
        When I go through those articles, I mostly read through the reviews of them.  It gives a better idea of what might be better.
    • Right, but then you're just getting into however different people value different things (including money, the performance of their golf clubs, the looks of the golf clubs, the value of a name brand, etc.). People have different values. For something like this, there's rarely any agreement on those, nor is there any "right" or "wrong" answers. I use a set of muscle backs that could just as easily be from the 1950s as now. The tech on those isn't really improving much (though the shafts are undoubtedly much better).
    • We went round and round a bit on this last year, but I don't remember seeing decision 15-3b/1 mentioned.  The difference between this decision and 27/6 seems to be that B's ball is found in a timely manner.  The finding of the "other" ball makes it virtually certain that A's ball was moved by an outside agency (Player B).  In the other thread, B's ball is never found.  27/6 allows the same kind of relief as long as the "other" ball is found within the 5-minute search limit.  As I read the rules and decisions, this is a timing issue,  the rules require a decision to be made within 5 minutes of beginning the search for A's ball.  If the "other ball" isn't found, its presumed lost.   In a way this is somewhat similar to another discussion we had, where a player's ball apparently hit a cart path and went much further than anticipated.  He searched and didn't find it at the expected distance, went back and played another tee shot for the lost ball, and eventually found the original much closer to the green.  He couldn't then put the original into play and "negate" the second tee ball, as he'd already searched for 5 minutes. I don't know if the difference in the timing of the discovery is adequate justification for the different outcomes, but that seems to me to be the defining factor.  It would be interesting to get the take of some of the USGA rules experts on this, not on what the rules say, but on why they draw the distinction.
    • I'd have thought there would be a sliding scale, akin to a volume discount. Not just $x/18 = per-hole cost. Or if there are obvious points where it's not terrible to get back to the clubhouse, make 3-hole, 7-hole, 11-hole, 15-hole, and 18-hole rates. Then you could even consider the par of the holes. Heck, if the course started par 5, 4, 5 I'd be tempted to just play the first three holes three times.  I'd get more for my money than playing holes 4, 5, and 6 which are pars 3, 4, 3.
