I have some foot issues but they have not been so bad as to having to wear my orthotics when I play golf. Now that has changed but my orthotics don't fit in my golf shoes (dri-joys) even if I remove the bottom sole. Any custom shoe people or shoes that are made to work with orthotics? Thanks

I can't wear any type of shoe/sneaker without special insoles for more than a day without getting back pain. The ones at Costco work great fo me and I put them in all my footwear. It is always recommended to remove the original insoles. I have Footjoy Contours with BOA and True Links for hotter days and they work great. Hope this was helpfull.

Welcome to the site.

I don't use orthotics but you can try the search function above to look for all the threads on golf shoes or any other topic you like.

I did a quick search for you and a few people suggest trying out the ECCO brand.  I'm pretty sure I've read some posts from @Mr. Desmond where he mentions that he wears True Linkswear shoes with inserts so he may be able to share his experiences with them.

Thanks for the help. I have E-mailed True Linkswear shoes about what they think would be best for me. I still think its strange that their is so little access to custom fitted golf shoes......

I used to "custom fit ski boots" years ago and would use my insoles in my golf shoes.

You have a couple of options.

Purchase a 1/2 size larger golf shoe with a larger width.

Trim your custom insole (Toe, Heel, width areas) slightly to fit.

Also, check other brands of insoles. Some are less dense than other brands and work well.

A belt sander works well on most insoles for modifying.

Take your golf shoes and insoles to a ski shop and ask a boot fitter for help.

Also, insoles sold at ski shops are usually a very good product and easier to fit.

Last year my feet were absolutely killing me when I played golf so I replaced my LiteJoys (or whatever, I don't think that's the name) with the Contour series which is FootJoy's comfort shoe. On top of that I also bought some orthodics which I can comfortably slip ontop of the liner that was already there. It was tight at first, but once the shoe broke in I have no problems whatsoever and they fit me perfectly.

That works, are they BOA style or lace ups?. Let me know how you guys make out though the summer. My older Contours lost their water proof quality near year end last year...they where bought in the spring at $150. I'm dassapointed. On the up side they are the most comfortable golf shoes ever so I bought a new pair for 19.95 at GolfTown on a one day online sale. I also own a set of lace up Contours; the pointed ones with holes down the sides of the lace area and find that the heel area wore through just after three rounds.

Mine are standard lace ups, and I'm with you...they're the most comfortable golf shoe I have owned

There are also options that aren't golf shoes. Many trail running shoes will provide the same if not more traction than street golf shoes and will have a variety of fit options. I love the Inov-8 X-Talon.

Hi,

I have the same issue and most "removable" insoles do not provide enough depth. Ecco have removal insoles on some shoes but you need to try before you buy.

I have been using Footjoy XPS-1 which have a deep removal insole and they have been fine with my orthotics. However, I am now have trouble buying them in an EU47 or U.K. size 12.

Good luck, I hope this helps you.

David

    • I just can't believe this on top of everything else has happened to him, he was supposed to win 25 majors and at least 10 green jackets and everything just derailed in 2009 and just setback after setback. We got a brief taste of his greatness at Augusta and then the world has to stop and just before we can see the second encore this has to happen.?When he had it all clicking in the early 2000's no one has ever played this game better than him and I don't think we will see anyone ever at least in our lifetimes dominate professional golf like he did ever. When I heard the news I just felt an emptiness I really never felt before about the game, sure the world keeps spinning on its axis but it's just never going to be the same for me on Sunday at Augusta.
    • I watched this video twice. I found it very interesting. Here's what I heard. First, I think the biggest point Mark was trying to make is that a golfer should in an ideal world built their bag one club at a time. As you go to lower and lower lofted clubs, you are more and more likely to need some help getting the ball in the air. It is hard to create proper launch conditions without enough loft. Where in the bag that happens (be it your 6 iron or your 2 iron) will depend upon your delivery, your swing speed, and it will be different for everyone. Some folks can hit a 2 iron. Other folks should drop from their 6 iron on up and go to a SGI iron or a hybrid.  Second, higher loft produces higher consistency. The trend of getting everything lower and lower lofted while possibly helping you hit the long irons, it might be hurting you in the short irons and traditionally higher lofted clubs. Loft is your friend when it comes to consistency.  Third, the further you are from target, the harder it is to hit target... No matter who you are. Fourth, higher handicap golfers are less consistent (i.e. have more bad shots) than lower handicap golfers. This creates a ton of what Mark called "noise" in the data. And with all that noise you can make an argument for anything you like. Therefore be careful when you are testing/getting fitted, because a fitter/salesperson can make what ever they want out of the data.  Finally, better players hit all clubs better. Worse players hit all clubs worse. The archer is more important than the arrow.
    • I apologize for resurrecting this thread but I thought this would be relevant information. The difference between Tiger's dip and Hogan's dip is that Hogan stopped the dip past P6 and only raised his head from that point on, even while hitting a driver. Tiger's just kept dipping past P7 and maybe P8. Mac O'Grady also raised his head in the downswing as well after his dip, just a bit earlier at P5 onwards. I believe this is a big part of the reason why Tiger needed multiple back surgeries and Hogan none, even Byron Nelson needed back surgery in his 40s as recalled in his autobiography and he definitely had a major head dip that continued past P7.  Now, I notice this head raising in downswing move after the post P4 dip only occurs with Hogan and Mac and very very very few others; I'd say 99.99% of golfers including the top tour pros today continue to dip past P6 and P7 especially with the longer clubs. That would mean only a handful of golfers in the world would truly pass Key #1 if this move was required to master it.
    • For any one wanting a cheaper sharpening option, the Accusharp is decent and requires no skill level to use.  Amazon.com  
    • Can't find the article or blog but I remember reading about Paul Wood (PING engineer) talking about how from a physics standpoint, more compact heads worked better for more skilled players. Basically a longer/wider face makes it harder for the better player to square up the face and hit the center. This bit hints at it.
