backwards shoes

10 posts in this topic

I was playing with my cousin the other day at Dear Creek.  I have always had problems with golf shoes, I hate them severly.  Now i just wear basketball shoes or crocs.  After the first nine I went into the bathroom (needed to release the six beers from the front nine).  I didn't notice at the time but when I came out of the bathroom I had put my shoes on the wrong feet.  I finished the round up with ABSOLUTELY no feet pain for the first time in years.  I want to wear them like that again but I don't want to look like a total idiot infront of my cousin.  Does anyone know of any brand of shoe that looks the same no matter what foot you wear it on.  My wife said her white keds did, but I went to the store and they didnt have a 13.

Wait, I don't get it.  You take your shoes off to take a leak?

Reminds me of that old Seinfeld episode where George decides to take off his shirt to go to the bathroom.

Your shoes fit better when on the wrong foot and you hate your golf shoes? Sounds to me like you should find the nearest golf retailer, multiple of them at that, and try different shoes until you find a pair that fits. I've had various experiences with golf shoes, but once I found the most comfortable ones, I wonder why I didn't go there before.

Polishing off a 6 pack on the front 9 might have had something to do with it.....

The lack of pain might have had something to do with the six pack on the front nine.  Try fitting shoes when you're more "alert" and I suspect they will feel better on the correct foot.

Yea If I had a six pack on the front nine anything would fell ok. So you took the shoes off so you would not get the wet is this correct

I may regret this but I am going to throw out an actual theory here. You could be a supinator which means you walk on the outside of your feet. Wearing your shoes on the opposite foot put the arch of the shoe under the outer part of your foot. This corrected your gait and helped take pressure off your feet and shins. I too have this issue. I have actually taken arch supports and put them in the opposite shoes to accomplish the same thing.

As for wearing the shoes themselves on the wrong foot... C'MON MAN!!! Please don't this. It just makes me sad.

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
