I walk around 70+ rounds a year, 7 1/2 miles per round.  Tried Skechers Go Golf2, various Footjoys and Nike. It so far my feet still hurt. We s there a better shoe or should I be looking at inserts?  Thanks.

Ecco

I have the Biom hybrid 2

I walk a lot as well and have wider feet, and really appreciate the roomy toe box on the Eccos.

FootJoy Pros SL's are the best I've ever owned.

I walk when playing & liked that the Pro SL, being leather, shaped to my foot.  Once that happened I couldn't tell i was wearing shoes (that comfortable).

7 1/2 miles per round?  How crooked do you hit it?

Go see an orthopedist for some help.  Other than that, wear a shoe that has lots of support.  I gave up on the soft shoes and have gone back to shoes with more support and a firmer sole. Puma Titan Tour Ignite.

Agree with Ecco. Also superfeet insoles are pretty good for a lot of folks.

If you really want to do it right - make an appointment with an orthopedist and get custom made orthotics.
Superfeet, Dr.Scholls etc. are decent products but do not compare to orthotics. They are expensive but hopefully you have coverage.

Other than sandals, every shoe I own I slip my orthotics into. I buy all my shoes in wide and rarely wear slip ons but my weird high-arched feet are trouble-free.
