I've got Footjoy Contour Casuals and can't speak highly enough of them. I usually play 2 x 18 holes per week and they are just so comfortable. I've tried spiked shoes from Adidas, Nike and Footjoy, and where Footjoy spikes rated highly for comfort, the spikeless contour casuals are the duck's guts by far. Been using them for a few months now, highly satisfied despite having "strange" feet (slightly different sizes) and no longer experience any problems at all.

I have been looking at Footjoy Contour Casuals they look good and good to get the feedback they are very comfortable as well..My feet get very sore after a round so hopefully these help. Thanks Wolfe :)

I think spikeless golf shoes defeat the purpose. Save yourself the money from buying "golf specific" spikeless shoes. Grab yourself a pair of cheap joggers from K-Mart.

but do you still get the same amount of traction? I've used joggers at the range and slip and slide all over the place. Haven't used spikeless golf shoes but I would imagine the traction would be a lot better.

I reckon A-Mart All Sport would have ripple soled touch footy shoes at a much cheaper price than "golf specific" spikeless shoes. Just my .02.

The one thing non specific golf joggers won't give is waterproofing. I use to use Asics Tiger Touch shoes and just on a morning dew outing you would have saturated feet.

Asics make a range of turf/grass sports specific shoes, and their "Gel Lethal Elite 4" model looks ideal for golf. These have the rubber pimple soles like many other "spikeless" golf shoes, combined with the support and comfort of well-made running shoes. But - how do I get them accepted by the fashion police at those golf clubs that insist on banning "joggers or trainers"?

Adidas CrossFlex are compfy, light and waterproof. They are also inexpensive, $90 a pair. They are ideal for players who have orthotics as they don't come with arch supports. Sergio threw his into the gallery after his round on the final day of the Ryder Cup, but he took out his inserts beforehand.

kym1387 No doubt there are a lot of suitable "spikeless" soles on the market these days and also no doubt some of them would suit some people better than others for a variety of reasons, be it feet problems, finances, or whatever. The reason I chose mine was for comfort and combined with the fact that they are leather, good looking (for me at least) and I don't get wet feet after the early morning sprinklers and dew, they do the job admirably. They cost me about $145-$155 at Golf Box in Perth. I tried the cheap joggers routine, failure all round, (and I'm not prepared to spend up to $200 or more for plastic and fabric "good" joggers), I tried the spiked shoes and got pretty good results from Footjoys and still have them but personally I get better results for me from the Contour Casuals. I'm not a shareholder in either Footjoy or Golf Box but you asked for an experienced opinion so there it is :) For what it's worth, I do wonder about the longevity of the dimples on the sole and I think the good leather shoe body would undoubtedly outlast the sole particularly if they were worn on hard surfaces a lot so there is some food for thought. Everyone is different, same with clubs, bags, buggies etc, so go along and try some different brands out in the shop and see if they are fit for YOUR purpose....you will be wearing them and paying for them :)

+1 vote for the crossflex shoes - got a pair recently and wished I had bought more but all my local stores have sold out of my size already. Really light and extremely comfortable as well.

I've recently got a pair of Ashworth Cardiff spikeless shoes. First round was 36 holes of rainy weather, no slippage issues at all and these shoes come with 2 year waterproof guarantee. The only thing if I was being picky, is that the stability on the sides of the shoes may be a little less than 'normal' shoes...maybe. Another bonus is they look good enough to wear out or in my case, wear to the office before going straight to a round :)

I have 2 pairs of Reebok golf shoes and really good value for money These are spikeless and very comfortable on the feet. Well worth having a look at you may be very surprised at the price.

agree TTR....or partly anyway. Joggers, yes, from K-Mart, no. Whenever I go up to Thailand for golf (hopefully twice a year now) , to keep the packing light, I wear a good pair of New Balance joggers to travel in and then wear them for golf. Had 7 trips now, 10 games per trip and I think I've actually slipped only once, trying to force a shot while standing on a mound. These are very comfortable and I'm thinking when my current Footjoys are stuffed it will be the NB's every day for golf. Probably will require some sort of waterproofing spray on them, but that ain't an issue.

So my credit card was burning a hole in my pocket and the pro shop at my club has 20% off FootJoy this month so bought a pair of the Contour Casuals. They were absolutely great. Extremely comfortable and pretty much the same sort of traction as normal spikes. I think they are probably best for spring/summer months but so far I'm a huge fan.

Yep, don't be throwing your leather shoes away soon. I have a pair of lightweight Puma golf shoes that aren't waterproof. They're as comfortable as heck but if its wet or if there's a suggestion of rain, I'm wearing the other (waterproof) leather golf shoes in my collection. Good to see you're wrapped in them though.
