I received the same promo material from them today.  Night and day difference between them and the AdiPure and Tour 360's.  I guess everyone is going to be competing with True and Ecco now.

I wore them sitting in my chair and walking around my house for half an hour before taking them off.

Does that answer the question? :)

Do they say what the heel drop is? I like the light strategy but I am interested to know how close they got to barefoot shoes.

I really like the look as well.

No. Hopefully 4mm or less, but I'm doubtful.

Seems about normal... if you like having your toes squished together. I've grown accustomed to a much wider toe box. I never understood why golf shoes by and large had such pointy toeboxes.

I was told it's because golf shoes were initially designed to resemble dress shoes which typically (depending on fashion trends) have a pointy toe box.

In the traditional sense of the country club golfer wearing "slacks," I can see that logic.

Even better. I have very narrow feet so I like a tight fitting shoe.

I think there's a difference between toe box shape and the general "width" of a shoe.

Perhaps you've simply found that narrower toeboxes are a reasonable tradeoff since you probably can't easily find shoes that are narrower than standard.

    • For those who don't know, for my actual "job," I am a professional photographer. I recently picked up a few putters from a now out-of-business company called PLOP, and they are just gorgeous putters, so I had to photograph them and I wanted to share. I was looking for a center shafted putter, as it was what I was fit into. Unfortunately I can't stand the look of center shafted putters so every one I've ever tried was just not an option. That is, until I found an old (what would be original version) of a putter my grandfather had in his bag called a PLOP. I looked up this particular brand and found that it was no longer in business, but best of all, the owner/inventor of the putter made what he calls a CSH putter, that is Center shafted hosel, but the hosel is "floated" through the heel end of the putter, still welded and attached to the center. Even better, he was selling the rest of what he had milled on Ebay, including a few special putters. So I get to look down at what is a blade style, while still having my center shafted putter. It was a downright bargain for a milled putter, too.  I have in photography what we call GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome), and sadly it translates to golf, too. I ended up buying 3 putters. One is a very wonderful black PVD finish, and the other is a nickel PVD finish that was tour-stamped, both very limited editions. I will do my best to photograph these and upload at some point, too.  In any case, I wanted to share a few of the images here. Unfortunately I can't upload the full size quality files but hopefully everyone enjoys a few of these. On a side note, golf clubs are actually extremely fun photographic subjects.  (Wasn't sure if this would fall under "clubs," but I thought it was more of a golf story/tidbit with the pictures. When I find the time to sit down and create a blog, I can put them there.) Feedback welcome, of course.   -Andrew.
    • I was about to ask what the birdie conversion rate was at the Barclays, to you know, get back on topic !
    • I have also experienced that. For whatever reason I excel at wedges in the sim. Its my full swings that dont register. I hit it hard enough for it to be loud and for the ball to hit middle of the screen but it either doesnt register or it comes back with something like dead straight but 98 yards. I had demoed a 3 hybrid and got that particular distance. I hit my 56 degree wedge that far. I often have near the same experience at the range. Only place I can hit a golf shot is on the golf course. It's ridiculous!! I mean come on, Im there, Im the one its happening to, Im present to witness it. It defies all logic!!!!! Has anyone else ever experienced such lop sided madness?!
    • It's only because, at one time, I worked with a lady from a California winery who kept referring to her Son, Pawul and her husband Gee-aw-gee-ohh! I couldn't place the accent except that I knew it was eastern. I finally asked if she was originally from Cali, and she told me she grew up in Lawn Guylund! The "G" in that accent definitely leads the second word. Maybe I'm weird, but I really like accents. I think they make the world, and it's people, more interesting. Imagine how boring the world would be if everyone sounded like a network news anchor!
    • Ah! Another mystery solved. I've seen these and kind of wondered where they came from.
