Footjoy Icon or Icon Blacks. Also Patrick Gibbons makes awesome looking shoes that I am tempted to try.

PG shoes are all on sale right now - pretty big discounts plus additional 30% off with "closeout" code at checkout.  FYI

You may want to check sooner rather than later before your size is gone...

Was just looking at Adam Scott sporting a brand new pair of FJs at the US Open. Was just wondering, how do the Pros feet hold up wearing new or near new shoes all the time? I for one hate wearing brand new shoes and look forward to them being used for a month or so before they are really comfortable.

Do the pros get them somehow worn in for them?

Those FJ's Scott wears are a super soft last like a sneaker.  The classic Icon Blacks and other leather soled shoes aren't swapped out every tournament, they're just cleaned and polished, like the brown and white wingtips Justin Thomas wears often.

Ashworth Encinitas.  Classic look and spikeless.  More comfortable than my Icons plus you can wear to work before heading to the course ; )           I have the black and the brown.

I walk all the time and I wear Eccos. Great shoes, but I admit that the appearance I like most in a pair of golf shoes comes out of the 1940s.

Ecco had it down perfect with the original Tour Hybrid ... but really don't like the new Lux model that seems to have replaced those. Soles are trying too hard to be trendy ....

And when I go to the Allan Edmonds website they seem to have now given up on the golf market ?

I'm going to have to start my own classic golf shoe company at this rate !!!!!!

I'll probably never switch from Puma, but for a dress shoe look (which I don't think looks good with shorts; which is what I wear 90% of the time) I think the G-fore's look pretty sweet.

FI's are not leather soles and have not been for years. Both the Icon and Icon balck are rubber soled.  But I agree with you that those style shoes are likely worn for a while-not just brand new every event.

Appears so. Not sure if it was a supplier issue or just not enough sales. One of the last rounds we played before I ordered my My Joy Shield Tips I asked him if he was going to have a new style coming out, he said no. Was going to sell through what he had and leave it at that.

Anyone have an opinion on the latest adidas adipure tp shoes. Some good prices online now but I haven't had any luck finding them at a local retailer.
