Hey guys,

 

What are your preferences and experiences in regards to shoes that have really worked for you in wet weather golfing.

I have a couple of pairs I will be more likely to pull out if it is going to be wet, but none of them is guaranteed.  I have an older model set of adidas leather shoes and a newer model of callaway leather shoes and of my lot, both of them perform the best at keeping the rain out.

 

Out of interest, one of the pairs that I used to prefer in the rain was a pair of nikes but the reason I preferred them was because they had a thicker sole, so your foot was a little further off the ground.  I felt it meant that I was less likely to get unbearable mud splatter and seepage onto the bottom of my pants.

They'd look like the pair of platform things that Kiwi wheels out occasionally.

 

They're special.

I have the more quality model golf shoes of Nike, Puma and Ecco and they're all waterproof.  If I lived in a place where it was sloshy all of the time, I'd probably buy a pair of Nike Bandons.

I'm thinking of the Bandons as well....

These ones Inkosi.  Unfortunately Ecco has gone all funky retro skateboardy and you can't get them anymore.

manufacturers are sneaky C....every new driver release model  20 yards longer than the previous, etc..

 

I am sure that many a shoe hasn't held up to the manufacturers word...just like to know what the peoples experience has been.

If you're concerned about a 2 year waterproof guarantee not be accurate, you return the shoes when they let you down inside that 2 years.

If heard many stories of people doing that without hassle.

 

FWIW - my last four pairs of golf shoes have been Adidas models.

All came with 2 year w/proof guarantee.

All held up just fine when it got wet/dewy within that period.

The only reason I replaced any of them was because the soft spikes wore down to a point that i couldn't get a wrench on them to swap them out.

Pretty sure I got at least 18 months of weekly golf out of all of them too.

Currently wearing the AdiZero Tour shoe.

Looooooooove them!
