Need to Buy New Golf Shoes

20 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

My current ones are from 2001, and the soles are decaying.
Plus, I need to replace the worn out spikes, or just get new shoes.

Any good values out there?

I don't want sneaker looking ones.
I want ones that look like classic dress shoes.

Here is an option:

To piggy-back on this...do you go spike or spikeless?

There are lots of options available.   As mention from @Osnola, spike or spikeless, cost, waterproof, style?    Several guys here like True shoes.   I prefer Footjoy.   Echo makes a good shoe as does Nike, New Balance and many others.

The shoes you showed in the link are nice. I wear Footjoy and love them, have two pair. I prefer the white and brown myself but they are a good shoe and last a long time. I also like to be able to change the spikes when needed, although it can be a pain getting the old ones out even with the tool. Last time I had to use needle nose pliers.

Holy smoke, 2001? Tell me you haven’t played much golf during that time? Over the past two years I have tried all the FootJoy models with the new BOA closure system, which is fantastic. It is worth the extra money. However, the new Ecco shoes with the BOA closure system are far superior to the offerings from FootJoy. Do not overlook Ecco, even if you don’t want the BOA system.

Shoes?  Is that like a dress code thing?

Hey Footjoy, I hope you're reading this.  Bought a new pair a year ago and within 10 months (unlike the other Footjoys I've owned) they began cracking in the uppers region.  So I contacted Footjoy and told them I'd been doing proper maintenance like I'd always done... polishing with a good shoe wax, cleaning, cedar shoe trees.

Ha, they told me the shoes were plastic and didn't need anything other than cleaning.  F that.  And their customer service did nothing.

A pair of golf shoes should not wear out in under a year... even if you are playing close to 100 rounds.  In the past I got 2-3 years out of my Footjoys, same number of rounds.  Built-in obsolescence?

 First thing I'll do after the busy season ends in April is replace my golf shoes.

I had a cheap pair of Footjoy Greenjoy shoes that I got for $50 a couple of years ago. They were pretty comfortable, but they died in October. The entire upper separated from the lower.

In a pinch, my old Adidas Adizero shoes still had enough in them to carry me since then. Less comfortable but more durable.

Personally, I'm a firm believer that comfort is the #1 reason to buy any shoe.  Durability, styling and waterproofing come second.

I'd generally agree with you there.

In my tightly budgeted world, money I spend on golf shoes is money that won't go to other golf-related things. That, unfortunately, always plays a role for me. That said, I've had pretty good luck with my previous two purchases. You can definitely get quality shoes for under $70.

I hope you gave them a proper burial. :-P

Comfort is number 1 for me, but I agree durability and function are very important.

Hasn't happened yet. I'm going to wait for a relatively warm evening, head to Kittyhawk with a shovel and bury them in the hazard on No. 10 of the Hawk course which has been drained for the winter.

I figure I've put enough balls into the thing that it could use something else. I'll use a broken tee as the grave marker.

Burial at sea. Appropriate.
