The best golfer (+2hc) and longest hitter of the ball I have EVER played with, plays exclusively in running shoes like ASICs.
I think golf shoes are overrated in recreational golf.

They only have 3 spikes that arent that long. Therefore enough walking on hard surfaces between holes will wear them out fast than the other soft spikes.

I might also add that it is a pain in the a** to change spikes with either the Q-lok or Fast Twist systems. The tools they give you only work if there's no dirt or debris wedged under the spike, which, unless your shoes are new and you're just changing spikes, is never. I usually have to use a couple pairs of pliers to get them out, and the tool to put them in.

I haven't worn my Nike's long enough to feel the spikes through the insoles like I would with my other shoes using the Metal threads. I'm not sure if that is an issue with the newer locking systems or golf shoes today.

I have found that to be a problem as well with new shoes that the spikes seem to be installed really tight. Usually before I wear the shoes for the first time I'll unlock them then tighten them again, but that was usually when I had spikes that used the metal threads. I found that once I did that I usually didn't have any issues later when I was replacing the worn out spikes. I also like to switch my spikes around so some the ones that get more wear are swap with others on the shoe that look hardly used. I find it help them last longer, like rotating the tires on your car for even wear and tear.

For brand of spikes it's only champ scorpions for me. This is because they are first of all the ones that give me best traction where I play and secondly I love their patented anti-mud ring thing around the fast twist threads as it really keeps dirt out and helps keeping threads clean an therefor makes changing easier and cleaner.

There is nothing like metal spikes, the grip they offer is 2nd to none!
I have a handful of pairs with soft spikes for use at courses that wont allow metal spikes.
I'm fortunate that my club allows metal spikes, I hate soft spikes with a passion!

I'm likely to get a new pair of shoes this year (as the old ones are wearing out). My next to last pair used the small screw type of attachment (and came with traditional metal spikes as "original equipment"). Trouble was when I switched to soft spikes, they always twisted out, and I'd lose a spike or two every few rounds.
So, my last pair (Foot Joys) used trilock and seems to work well, but I'm now wondering if folks have a preference. Additionally, if one attachment system is far and away the winner, I'd likely consider only shoes with that system (or it is more important to get the shoe you like, irrespective of the attachment system). Is there a trend to a clear market winner in terms of attachment system, or will we likely have to live with a number of systems for some time...seems each manufacturer says their system is "best".
I'm also wondering what the consensus is on the best spikes? I've been using Scorpion for a few years now, but I like the idea of the "wear indicator" on the Champ Stingers.
Love to hear what folks are using and what they feel is best (or worst).
