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

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.

Me: Oh, sweet, that's cool Vans is expanding their line of footwear to golf. Are those at retail yet?
Him: Oh, these aren't golf shoes, they're skate shoes.
Me: So what are the nubs for?
Him: Oh, for skating.
Me: Why are you golfing in them?
Him: They're comfortable. Vans is never going into the golf business, we are a skateboard company. We'll never market to golfers.
Me: You're in the shoe business and don't realize the huge market of 80's kids who are now adults and golf and their teenage kids who already wear your shoes and are starting to get into golf would cop a pair Vans golf shoes for nostalgia? You're missing a huge market.
This is where I mentioned Kikkor shoes from Canada and that guy on Big Break taking the idea of a skate shoe turned golf shoe. I never bought them but they had some okay styles. I believe a couple tour guys repped 'em for a bit, including Kevin Chappell. His company failed but the concept was cool and why wouldn't a huge company like Vans add a couple golf options?
Him: I've never heard of Kikkor shoes or the Big Break, what's that? Our target market is skateboarders, surfers, snowboarders, etc. We're a lifestyle company.
Me: Yeah, but just make more of those in a bunch of colorways with a little longer nubs and you'd make a killing. People like nostalgia and "cooler" golf stuff. Haven't you seen the crazy Nike, Puma, Jordan high-top shoes with wild colorways and the jogger pants getting popular? Pat Perez rocking Jordans on Tour and the all the young fans Fowler brings to the game? Kids love Vans shoes. You know Kelly Slater and Eric Koston love golf too and Koston has a Nike golf shoe?
Him: No, golfers are traditionalists. We don't want to market to golfers.
For somebody who works at Vans corporate the guy was absolutely clueless. And by the end of his round his white on white shoes were filthy. I'd pick up some of classic "Core" style in darker colorways for the summer/dry rounds in a heartbeat. They could do hightops for kids or some of the classic designs too (checkered/ska).
Stuff like this:
