Rory just posted a boomerang clip on his Instagram.

No more spikes on the LC!!

Seems it is the Vapor and not the 5.

Quite like the design of them, never had spikeless shoes before so will be interested to see the grip pattern that these have.
Guessing the tick on the toe will split opinion once again.

Really like that the Swoosh looks smaller than the LC4, even though the LC4 Swoosh didn't really bother me,  but I just recently got turned on to the Chukkas so don't see me picking up the LC5 for a while.

I guess I'm the minority in here....Not a fan of these. Not interested in spikeless and the lines/graphics on the side just don't look right to me. I'm sure they are comfortable though!

Did you try a wide size in the LC4?  

Wide size + Flywire lacing = perfect fit.

Spikeless shoes are for folks in Sun City...I want a golf shoe with some spikes.

No way Rory wears a spikeless when it counts.

This is the same traction they used the Flyknit Elites this year....it will replace spikes for most Nike shoes down the road I assume.
Rory will definitely ride these all year.

He wore the Chukkas alot last year. He also wore the Air Maxs a couple of times

Not in the majors and not in the playoffs.

not to mention his version of the air max shoes had special spikes attached to them, so they weren't exactly a spikeless.

and he was also slated to wear the flyknit lunar elites when they launched, but scraped that idea for the LC4's. The tread pattern is the same, so unless he feels more comfortable with them, i can see a special spiked edition for rory.
