Anyone gaming these? How's the traction and comfort? BOA or no BOA?

I have a pair of Puma spikeless, all leather, don't know the model.  They are very light, very comfortable, and the traction is good.  As a disclaimer, at my age and ss, traction is not a huge issue, and where I live, we never play on wet, slick grass.

I have just gotten the Boa Titantour... They are great, but the boa isn't tight enough, and the thing squeaks.  They are great shoes, but I will stick to lace from here on out.

I have the Ignite Drive sport (spiked) and its extremely comfortable.

Which year and model ?  Was it the 2017 premium titan tour Boa?   I thought I remember from another thread you had ordered them.  If so how do they compare to your 2016 premium as the 2017 look like there us an inner bootie liner?

They are the new 2017

They are super comfortable and there is an inner liner. The show is a little roomier than the 2016. But that may be the disc model. I read somewhere that it was going to be a wider shoe.

It is.  I can't get them quite tight enough.

I tried these on at PGAS this weekend.  They were very light weight but I personally didn't care for the wet-suit type material.  I also, could not get the boa tight enough.  My heel always wanted to slide out.  I tried on a size down but they were to small.  Stick to laces.

I bought a pair on sale last fall and here's my takeaway:
Extremely comfortable.  They are tied for first in my arsenal of shoes (with True Linkswear True Motion) on comfort.  One tip: be sure to try them on because I had to go to a different size versus my normal shoes.  
Traction: Very good for a soft spike
No BOA.  I'm not a fan of the BOA.  Prefer laces
Only thing keeping me from buying other pair is they are not supportive.  I realize they aren't supposed to be but I find  my True Linkswear True Motion are even more supportive.  I will say I love these but not to play in but to practice chipping, putting, or bumming around town.  I slide a little too much on the course to trust them day in and day out.  However, I still think they are worth it if for no other reason than to have a lightweight pair for casual work days or light practice.

I was thinking the same thing about the support when I tried them on.

I have 2 pairs of the ignite spikeless sport and they are amazing (grey/gecko and the new all white pro models).  They are one of the most comfortable shoes (not just golf shoe) I've ever worn, period.  They are very fashionable as well, if you are into that.

I will say that are a bit "stretchy" and some might not feel like they are getting the support of a more traditional leather shoe, and some people flat out don't believe spikeless soles give you traction needed.  My driver swing speed is about 110mph and I don't have any traction or support issues with them.  I don't like the BOA tech though, so I go with laces.

If you are on the fence with them, I would go try a pair on and I bet you fall in love.

I picked up two pair of the Puma Ignite Spikeless Sport (non-disc) last week and wore both over the long holiday weekend, walking 54 holes and riding for 18.  These shoes are like wearing slippers, they are so comfortable.  They remind me of my Addidas Ultraboost shoes.  Incredibly light weight.  They grip great (I am a dew-sweeper).  They are waterproof.  They don't offer much structure, if you need that (I don't, apparently).  This is everything I've been looking for in a Summer golf shoe.  And they were only around $100.

Gave in and bought a pair of the new discs in pure blue.

More comfortable than the premium, but not quite as nice. And the disc on the side is better

I wear a size 10 in most shoes, except for my Addidas Ultraboost running shoes.  I ended up with 10.5 for the Ignites, which felt the best with the thicker Kentwool socks I wear.

I think they run pretty true to size.  I wear size 10 in my Nike Pegasus running shoes, and that's what I ended up getting in the Ignite Spikeless Sport.  If you live near a Dick's, you can order a couple sizes online (free shipping) and return what doesn't fit in-store.  It's honestly how I buy most of my shoes, because I can wear them around my house for a day and decide which fits best.
