What company do you think makes the best looking classic all leather golf shoes? I love the Footjoy Icons but not a fan of the Icon Black shoes. Justin Boots also made golf shoes for a bit with the Ben Hogan extra spike. I have a few pairs of them and they're amazing. Problem is that they are no longer being made and had limited colors and styles. Another sweet setup is brought to us by Allen Edmonds. I've picked up a few pairs and they're awesome. Great feel and quality. Wear like a cast iron skillet and have the Allen Edmonds resole ability and warranty. I'm contemplating getting street caps and rocking them at some events (might even try to get the green light for my wedding).

Are there any other companies out there that made awesome classic golf shoes?

Option 1
Taylormade M1 460 10.5 down 2 notches set to stun Matrix Ozik TP6HDe
Taylormade M1 5 wood Fujikura Pro 70s
Nike VR Pro 3 hybrid project x 6.0
Nike Vapor Pro 4-PW DG S300
Adams MB2 GW
Nike Engage 60 Dual Grind
Bettinardi Inovai 3.0
Ping 4 Series Tour Edition White/ Bridgestone 2014 Tour Bag

Option 2
Nike Vapor Speed w/ Whiteboard Flowerband 7x
Adams XTD ti 5 wood AD-TP 7x
Adams red 20 Matrix Ozik Altus 80s
Callaway Apex Pro 2014 KBS Tour V X flex
Cleveland RTX 2.0 52 deg raw
Titleist Vokey Prototype 58 T Grind

It's alive, this swing! A living sculpture and down through contact, always down, striking the ball crisply, with character. A tuning fork goes off in your heart and your balls. Such a pure feeling is the well-struck golf shot. Now the follow through to finish. Always on line. The reverse C of the Golden Bear! The steel workers' power and brawn of Carl Sandburg's.

Dont need the pics to show up to tell you this is a great option. I have the black kangaroo/black lizard. Besides being really good looking I walk rounds in them as well and they are comfortable.

I love my Icon Black's. Stylish and comfortable right out of the box. After wearing for one round you don't even know you're wearing shoes. I was initially skeptical of the cork bed liners but when you wear the shoe they feel great. A luxury touch (that doesn't show in photo) are the brass tips on the end of the shoelaces - I guess that's to match the heel plates.

I walked 18 today in FootJoy Freestyles, and while they are comfortable, tonight, my feet are a bit sore and tired. At one time, I had a pair of FJ Classic Drys. Those shoes were a bit heavy, but my feet always felt good after the round. I would love to try some Icons, but I can't find anyone that stocks them. I sure seems a lot harder to find solid, well built golf shoes.

Until recently, Allen Edmond... there current models are basic saddle shoes (and one really ugly athletic shoe model that I think Jack wears), but you used to be able to get a wide array of uppers on a golf last.

The great thing about "Classy?"

Like the Champions of our game, it is timeless....

For me, one shoe defines Class, Elegance & Distinction~

Allen Edmonds

Specifically, the Honors Collection

One shoe actually, which is the only shoe that I have worn since they were introduced in Swats and Tournaments, and that is the Haskell

I only wear the black cleated model in Tournaments though I wear the brown cleated sometimes in my Swats and also the "shop" shoe(cleat less) in both brown and black casually.

I do have two pair of hand made Nebuloni's(Miguel Angel rocks em), one made from a burgundy died steer leather that Pete gave me prior to our last Club Championship together(2005) and the second pair a black croc that looks similar to the Haskells, that Madison gave me prior to the 2012 Inter Club MP Championship and I wore them over the black Haskells and won, lol, however I would never ever pay for a pair of shoes what they paid for these, lol

That's the other great thing about "Classy."

The dollar bill does not and cannot define it-

Allen Edmonds fits the bill for me

Stay well BroMeister😎👊

Hadn't seen those before. Great looking shoes!  I need some of those white ones. I really with they would incorporate the hybrid sole, though. They would be the perfect work/golf shoe.
