How often do you have to replace them? With traditional shoes, I need to replace the spikes every now and then. Can that even be done with Trues? Is it needed?

I might end up buying a pair before too long if it's that easy and they last that long. That sounds even easier than my current strategy of using sandals and keeping socks in the shoe bags.

There's nothing to replace - they're just part of the sole.  Now, as part of their current lineup, they do make a couple types that have traditional soft spikes, but all of the pairs I have are just simple and spikeless.

(Incidentally, if you're interested, they're having a sale on the "Vegas" model shoe today for $50.)

So... how long do they last? Longer than a pair of shoes with spikes that need replacing now and then? Or as long as a set of spikes? And... is the Vegas model any good? And who is "they"? I... might be making a purchase from they today.

I don't know.  Before I started wearing Trues, I was wearing the Eccos with no spikes either.  Honestly, I don't know that I've EVER replaced a set of spikes on a golf shoe.  The first pair I bought was probably late 2012?  Maybe early 2013?  None of my pairs (I have 4 of them now) have shown any kind of noticeable wear.

"They" are True Linkswear - the ones that make the shoes. :-P

And I do not own any pairs of Vegas, so I can't speak to whether or not that particular model is any good.  They kinda LOOK like a cross between my Protos and my Senseis, but I don't know for sure.

Adidas Adipower Boost Shoes

Check out the member reviews at http://thesandtrap.com/products/adidas-adipower-boost-golf-shoes/reviews

This is what I was going to suggest, a few guys I know tried them off the back of Mark Crossfields review on youtube and they've all said they're awesome.

I've not even heard of True's though, not seen anybody with them on in the UK, saying that I don't spend much time looking at peoples feet.

I need some new shoes now anyway, so going to look into both.

Forget that, they're not common in the UK and the only ones I like on their site are $200 and I won't be paying that :loco:

Comfort depends on your foot, and for me, the most comfy is now the Ecco Biom Lace (I believe it is the equivalent o the G2, only more conservative). They fit my feet nicely - not too tight nor too loose.

I've also owned True Linkswear, and they are comfy. With the stock insert, my feet move too much and bang up my toes - so I need an aftermarket insert. I've also purchased socks with separate toes - weird looking but they help a bit with the True stock setup.

The Adipowers that we reviewed are $190.

(That said, I wouldn't pay $200 for any pair of golf shoes, so I'm with you on the True Classix ... no thanks ;))

I've just noticed the price of those too, they're about £100-£130 for what I like, but that's still going to be near $180 :loco:

My last Adidas pair were £40 ($60) and were good, but they've lasted me about 100 rounds (not sure if this is good or bad), looks like no boost for me, the remainder can go towards a driver when I figure out how not to hit the bloody thing out of the heel (so can at least get fit properly).

Put me in the camp of wearing trues.....I also have wide flat feet so options for me are limited to begin with.  I have a older pair of true tours that I love, didn't like the 2014 stuff nearly as much(not as wide toe box).  haven't seen any of the 2015's yet...I check ebay every couple days trying to find more of the older true's in my size.

I know they weren't on your list but if you're looking to save some money if you have a Nike or Addias outlet store near you can you can usually get last year's models at least 50 percent off.

@ajst22 , is this enough to get you to try a pair? :-D

It was, I ordered a pair of the Game Changer Hybrids (as well as their ultralightweight stand bag which looks nice. Will just return it if I don't really like it). Thanks for all the input guys! I expected more people to be pushing Ecco on here since they seem to have a good reputation with comfort, but we shall see how the Trues are :)

I'm also with you where I've never replaced spikes on shoes. I'm generally very gentle with mine. I try to stay away from gravel/asphalt/concrete and do my best to just walk on grass. That's a sure fire way to get your golf shoes treads and spikes to last forever!

    • Day 8.  Spent ten minutes hitting 8-iron and 6-iron indoors, off a mat, into a net.  Took about as many minutes.  Then, I wandered out back to do Speed Sticks.  I haven't read the rules of that encouragement role, but I should:  my last time (before a few minutes ago) using speed sticks, or at least measuring it, was October 25.
    • Just want to add that it's also related to ankle dorsiflexion. So for the last month before each round I'll take the grip end of a club and press it into the top of my calf as I rehearse the backswing and early downswing. Basically I don't want that angle from the foot to the ankle to change. Puts me in a position to work through the hip joint, which means that knee won't collapse inward. Gives me a good feel and reminder before and even during the round.

    • Hmmm I will have to ask around. I may be able to rent a trackman bay for an hour for the cost of a lesson. Bought the videos just get a visual representation of key #5 drills, very worth it!
    • Yea, I think it depends on how you view a caddies role. If a caddie is meant to have a bigger role for the golfer, then sure that makes sense. I do think the book even takes away from a caddies skill to read a green. I think at a certain level, the green reading books need to be limited. I rather a caddie be good at reading a green versus using a book. Same with a golfer.
