Really interesting... I saw it on Instagram and then saw it selling on Eastbay. Looks like a nice Range Shoes or casual practice shoe. Not sure how it'll hold up walking 18 holes or how your feet will feel. Then again, the Skateboarding and walking might be ok?

Vans didn't intend this to be a golf shoe, if you read the description on their site.  Doesn't mean it can't work for someone who likes a more flexible golf shoe though.

I've been wearing these for golf lately and the traction is actually pretty good and they are super light and comfortable.

The bottoms looks similar to my ecco spikeless, which have tremendous grip

‘Range’ shoe, I believe intending a wide range of possibilities.

Looks so so.

Some ‘turf’ offerings from other brands do okay at the range but not enough grip for me to use on course.

These look pretty similar to the older Nike spikeless shoes. There are a handful of different variations in looks and material.

My personal favorite is the white on whites

That's exactly how I took it.  Not sure if some folks are seeing "range" and are thinking driving range but I don' think that is at all what they meant. I think they just mean they have a wide range of uses.   Can you golf in these shoes..sure.  Are they meant as golf shoes..I don't think so.

Pretty sweet shoe that would really look good on/off the course.

I got the white on white with gum sole accent. Love them for a quick bucket between lessons on the practice tee or putting green work.

Definitely an everyday shoe that can work for golf and not the other way around.

Yeah, talked to my buddy who works at Vans and he was confused when I asked about the new golf shoes.. apparently they weren't made with golf in mind, but I do want to give them a shot!

I have them and have been using them for about a month. I have the all white ones btw. They are very nice, light, and comfortable. Tough to wear in the morning because the all mesh get wet quickly with the dew I wear them with no socks sometimes cause they're that comfortable perfect for the range or walking 9 holes in the afternoon.
