Hey Folks!

Just wanted to drop in and let you guys know about some newly released golf shoes we've got over on golfshoesonly.com now.

We're really seeing manufacturers flock to the "street" and sneaker styles with their new shoes.

What do you guys think? Do you go for the street shoes or do you kick it old school with more traditional style golf shoes?

And for those of you already on board with the street shoes: do you wear them a lot off the course as well? Or are they still just for golf?

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

I should correct my earlier post. I like the look of the new Adidas Power Band and Tour 360 shoes, not the ones shown above. Out of the shoes shown above, FootJoy by far wins the "appearance" award in my book.

Huge fan of the street shoes, I have 3 pair, FJ Contour Casual, ECCO Street and Oakley Ripcord, plus hoping to get the Adidas Crossflex for my birthday.  I hope this is not just a trend, I really don't want to go back to traditional golf shoes, I find the street shoes much easier on my feet, I can walk 18 and still stand on my feet the next morning.  I don't wear my street shoes for anything but golf, but I really like being able to put my shoes on at home, drive to the course, play 18, and drive home.  No more trying to change shoes sitting on the cart or trunk of the car.

    • I had a hard time doing the hip thing. What happened was starting the swing with the arms. Now I start my swing by literally attacking with my right shoulder to the ball and just ignoring the club, hands, arms. The effect is, the hip is pushed out of the way, it just has to anatomically, the right elbow comes in before the body and you get in a position where you can give it smack with the right side.  So yes for me it is a start with the upper body the thing that is said to be a nono.  Its really just an approach from the other side to clear the hips. Worth a try. I love it.
    • When you say with the right shoulder you mean staying connected with the hips though? Not rotating the uper body 1st right? I really struggle with the legs / knees doing what they're supposed to.
    • Ok. I think I made big progress now. I practised swinging with speed yesterday (without hitting the ball) and measuring club head speed. What I noticed is that rotating my hips and body faster did nothing for speed. But keeping my wrists and arms loose and do everything from there gave at least 10 mph more speed. Also I worked on my timing. I measured 80 with my 7 iron, and around 85 with my 5. Could not measure my driver at home though. Today at the range I hit the ball around 200-220 yards with my seven iron which is pretty insane compared to how far hit it before. I was doing this on hard practise mats though. So on the fairway this might be less. Also I used a lot of lag. So my 7 iron probably behaved more like 6 or even 5 iron. Ok. Now for the driver. I did some corrections to my hand position and stance. No slice anymore which of course makes the ball flight straighter and longer. I hit is pretty consistently 220 yards. Which is pretty interesting since this is NOT a lot of longer than I hit my 7 iron. I also tried my Hybrid (its like a 4 iron) but did only gain about 10m of distance and more much inconsistent shots. Now I took your advice and tried a 3 wood. Wow you were right. I hit the ball 240 yards.  Whats is all means to me that I could probably hit the driver 250 yards or more but at the moment I still have a swing problem with this. I should mention that I use a very cheap driver from a complete Wilson set (whole set around $300). Maybe my timing with arms and wirst are just wrong with the driver.  Could also be the driver itself. But I doubt it since I hit the 3 wood from the same Wilson set much longer it seems.
    • do the hipslide by attacking with right shoulder, some find it easier. Try it it also presses the hip away just passively. 
    • Hopefully won't get into trouble for bumping an older thread but this is awesome. I'm working on hipslide, infact I'm obsessed with hipslide. I'm a s&t player so the hipslide is key part of the process for me at the moment. Any of you high HC players onto any feelings that help you get this down?  Finding it so hard to nail. I'm a feeling player and the info the coach has given me all makes total sense but unless I can get a feeling to work towards its hit and miss.  Cheers.
