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.

Skechers Go Golf have been the most comfortable golf shoe i have ever owned with the factory insole. Maybe you should find some comfotable custom insoles if your having trouble finding comfortable shoes. Shoes from the factory come in one insole is comfotable for most. However, most doesn't mean all obviously. Go try some custom fit insoles!

Bingo.  I have found a good quality leather shoe that fits properly (I currently wear Icon Blacks) works best for walking.  The shoe molds to your feet after a couple rounds and you aren't aware of your feet during a round.  Wearing the soft "tennis shoe" style doesn't work for me - not proper support. It reminds me of walking barefoot on the beach.

The best shoe in the world with no orthotics will be worse than a mid-level shoe with proper orthotics.  

Get thee to a doctor.

Nothing beats Superfeet, they can turn an uncomfortable shoe into the best shoe you've ever worn. I wear them in my golf shoes and hockey skates and they can't be beaten. I've found the carbon to be the best for golf.

^^^ this

Nothing can match the comfort of custom-made orthotics. Make walking 36 holes very pleasant again. Cushy shoes help in the beginning but break down fast and the discomfort will come back. A well made orthotic will last years and can be refinished. I still wear ones that are 15 years old and have been refinished twice (for a fraction of the original cost). The carbon fiber moldings last forever if you don't do something stupid to them.

How much do you weigh? If your heavy, your crushing your shoes and need to alternate every other round. Just like my running shoes, you need more then 1 pair. You need to give time for the rubber and foam to reset itself. I play more then you and I rotate between 4 pairs. Try Ecco and new balance
