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.

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

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.

    • Hi guys, Ive went and bought a set of Mizuno JPX 921 Forged irons from eBay, prob is l never read the description fully, they are 2 degrees flat. Im 6ft, 36" wrist to floor and using Ping's guide that would make me 2 degrees up(green). My current irons are Titleist AP1 718 and the are more upright from std than the mizunos.... So l know l can have them bent, but do you think going from 2 flat to 2 up will be ok for the clubs...? Thanks Brendan
    • 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.
