I am have a couple pairs of Ecco Boim Hybrids and love that shoe but I am looking for something that will breathe a little better during the hot summer months.  I play 3 days a week and walk 99% of the rounds I play.  So a shoe that is comfortable to walk in is what I need.

Any recommendation?  I am looking at the puma pwr ignite but no golf store around me has any to try on.

Thanks in advance.

Puma grip sport. Super comfortable and breathable. I'm a walker also.

Had a pair of the ignite drive last year but like the spikeless grip sport a little better for walking. Ignite has more support if that's what your looking for. Ignite is a little more narrow in the toe box than the grip sport but both fit true to size in a 12 for me

Haven't tried the power ignite sport, but I had the last year model (ignite spineless sport).  Very comfortable shoe, but I found the uppers way to stretchy. It was like my foot rolled over the sole every swing.  Not sure if the new saddle is any better in the pwr ignite.

I have a couple pairs of the Nike Roshe G - honestly very comfy, relatively cheap, and surprisingly stable.  Great warm/dry weather shoe.

You probably won't get much lighter of a shoe than the Nike Roshe G.  I wear the Roshe running shoes and was surprised they came out with a golf version.

Another vote for Nike Roshe G!

Also, just got new Knit from Truelinkswear, very light and very comfortable, but have yet to play a round with them yet. So jury is still out.
