Kikkor shoes?

11 posts in this topic

I've done a search and there is limited reference to them that I've found in the forums. My question is have many here played in them and how do they feel? I'm considering ordering a pair, I really like the styles and color schemes they offer. Not to bad with the prices on some of them either. These are the ones I'm considering the most Thanks ahead of time for any feedback http://www.kikkor.com/products/Eppik-2-Breathe-Blue-Swede?pageID=f79af2d7-f052-4f08-05bd-e0b561e89da0&sortBy;=DisplayOrder

I play in a friends member-guest and one of the guys who plays there wears them. He has 2-3 pairs. He likes them because they have a casual look, he said there were no more/less comfortable than most of the other golf shoes he wore. Sorry I can't help more.

I just received the pair i ordered online, they look good, they are comfortable but i have yet to play a round with them because of some small weather problem (3 feet of snow). They advise to order half a size longer than your normal shoe size, was true for me.

I was wondering if that was actually necessary with the half size larger. Thanks for letting me know

Yea that's how I had heard about them, I've been pretty impressed with the appearance of his line of shoes so far

I've been told there's a brand ( I believe Nike? ) that if you were them without the spikes in them it will tear up the receivers where you screw them in. Can you ask your friend if that's the case for his Kikkors? The shoes look really sharp and I would want to be able to wear them around off the course occasionally. Thank you in advance

Most of the new shoes look like you can't replace the spikes. Some of them you can, but most look like they are permanent spikes like most of the casual golf shoes now (ie Ecco, foot joy, True)

I rechecked the website and it shows the spikes are replaceable, I'm just waiting to hear back from their customer service if they can be worn casually off a course without damaging the spike receivers

I've been emailing Scott at Kikkor, he said they have the same problem it will tear up the receiver if you walk without the spikes. I made a joke about giving me a discount for buying 2 pair, one for play and one for casual wear and he's checking to see what kind of deal they can work out for me :)

I have a pair of these Kikkor shoes . I love the casual look, they are the most comfortable golf shoes I have owned, the price is excellent. They don't have removable spikes but after two seasons and only walking I haven't noticed any significant wear.

I would definitely recommend Kikkor.

    • 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.
