Hey folks! Right now I'm in the market for a new pair of golf shoes. Right now I have the FootJoy Contour series that are going into their third year of play, and they're just not really cutting it. I remember when I bought them, they were a heck of a lot more comfortable than my FootJoy Lites I had before them. Maybe just age is getting to them, but they're still in great condition. Regardless, my feet are killing me. As of right now, price isn't really the deciding factor...I have yet to find a golf shoe that is actually comfortable to wear. There isn't a place anywhere nearby where I can try any on, so I was looking to just order something off of Zappos.

There are a few models I have in mind:

Ecco Biom Hybrid 2

Ecco Biom G 2

Puma BioDrive

Puma TitanTour

FootJoy HyperFlex

FootJoy DNA

I'm also not really sure if the "hybrid" style shoes would be generally considered more comfortable than the traditional spike ones. I just want to get as much feedback from this great community of avid golfers, and I'd trust this forum over reading reviews on sites.

If you have any of the models I am considering, I'd love to hear from you. If you have any shoes you'd like to mention that aren't on my list, obviously feel free to shout it out. And like I said, not looking at price as the real deciding factor. I just want to get the right pair of shoes. I appreciate all the feedback!

Footjoy Greenjoys guy, very basic. But I found out about True Linkswear golf shoes from this site. The zero heel drop models are basically waterproof leather slippers with better traction. Very comfortable and great for feeling the slope of the greens with your feet.

You know, I keep getting their magazine, and I don't know why I never thought to look at their shoes! I'll look into True Linkswear

Sixthed for Trues.  I was one of the members that reviewed the Adidas Adipower that @meenman linked, and they're great, but they don't hold a candle to Trues in the comfort category.  Nothing I've worn - golf shoe or otherwise - with the possible exception of fleece slippers I might get in my Christmas stocking, have come anywhere close to the comfort of the Trues.

Seventhed for Trues.

I like them so much, I wear mine every day at the office.

Easily the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn.

Does that affect your ability to use them as golf shoes? I can't imagine any other shoes I own being wearable off-course without affecting their desired use on-course.

I know you weren't asking me, but ... nope.  There really isn't much to the bottom of them.  Just some little rubber nubbies.  I wear a pair to work on days I'm going to the range at lunch (unless I forget like I did yesterday and today) so I don't waste any time putting on shoes in the parking lot.  There is no noticeable difference between the bottom of that pair and the bottoms of the other pairs I own that I can't wear to work.

Eighthed.

Been wearing Trues for the past 4 years, really liking my new pair, the Game Changer Hybrids.

9th'd.

I walk just about every round I play.  My feet used to hurt, now they don't.

for me there are three types of golf shoes.

the classic hard leather or similar with huge spikes (not confortable at all, to firm yet great for wet condition). high price.

the basketball looking shoes with huge heals and spikes (not great, fells like the foot is cooking). mid to high price if technical

the sneakers (great confort, not at all adapted to wet conditions). very low price if not too trendy.

I play adidas samba shoes since a year (sort of stan smith style sneakers) they have little tiny spikes. hold well on dry firm short cut turf.

Great confort compared to leather golf shoes with huge spikes and all that.

So I can't go back to classic shoes unless it's raining.

so i got a new pairs of addidas Idunowhat adicros. molded spikes. haven't tried yet.

I made two changes that really have helped my feet. I got some Adicross Gripmores, and they are very comfortable. Also, I have quit carrying my bag, and am using a three wheeler. Taking the weight of the bag off my shoulders has really reduced the stress on my feet. I can't put in a good word for Trues, because I can't find them. I am reluctant to order shoes I can't try on despite True's return policy. I hope they can improve their distribution. The closest golf shop that stocks them is over an hour away, and it is not on the way to any place I go.

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.

    • Great fact based no BS commentary. Sounds like she filtered out a series of different and significant injuries. He was well above average fit and hopefully will recover and return to a normal life.
    • Thanks for your story. Seems like a realistic timeframe for me, too - as I read that in other posts as well. Maybe I am too optimistic to achieve that in only one year. I see. That's another factor which I will have to face. I broke 90 on my home course. I will probably get a reality check after I play more on other, perhaps more difficult courses. Thanks for your input! That is very interesting. I like the breakdown of what worked for you. My coach and I are working on a playbook for me and have set out specific goals to shave off strokes in particular areas of my weakness. Thanks for sharing your story.
    • I am just over 40 and I used to be quite athletic (2nd league pro in another sport). Besides my humble brag here, I feel the athletic stance and have the 4-5 hour cardio and mental focus - however my putting and driver technique cause me at around 10 extra strokes together. Yeah, I basically break 90 now: - OB driver shots, and barely over 200 yards - Above average iron shots (short and long) - making up for my driver; quite accurate and distances are by the book - 3-4 putts (messing up my score)
    • Thank you for the stats chart, that's worth gold! Yes, I have a golf coach and I keep a hand-written log in my scorebook. I am embarrassingly bad at putting (3-4) and my driver shot is not accurate and the distance is well below my age. However, my iron game is above average in terms of full swing mechanics, distance and accuracy - that was pretty much the only thing I practiced until I met my coach. The goal is to reduce by 5 putts in the short term. Thank you for your feedback. Yeah, Iooks like if I improve my putting and driving (among other aspects) to the same level as my iron skills I could be a more consistent 90s player. Come on! The putting struggle is real and tracked in my book.
    • Good luck! Let's ping each other by the end of the year again. I see that you that you also worked on your putting and short game. Good to have stretch-goals.  My golf coach guides me. Before I met him I practiced my iron game so much and completely neglected putting over that period. Genuinely, my iron game is quite accurate and the iron (short, long) distances I shoot are above average. However, I often end up doing 3-4 putts and my driver shot goes barely over 200 yards and is not accurate either. If I can shave some off those putts that could be 5-7 strokes right there.
