I HAVE or HAVE HAD dozens of pairs of golf shoes, but I don't necessarily still wear them.

So my question is...how many do you actually currently rotate in and out??

I was up to about 6 or 8 last year, but now I've gotten it down to my favorite 3 pair (maybe 4 actually)

Two pair.  All black and all white.  I play in running shoes from time to time.  I really don't see the need for golf shoes if you can't use metal spikes.

Major shoe junkie here.  I've got six pair of Adidas.  All the Adidas on the "sport" last fit me just perfectly.  I also  have 1 Oakley,  1 Nike, and 3 Etonic G-Soks.  

I think every single pair was purchased on clearance.

Since I walk a hilly course over 170 times a year, I like to rotate several pairs and fit and comfort are very important.

I want to see a photo of anyone voting for more than 1 :cheesy:

:worth:

With that now done, I do own 5 pair that I rotate...but I'm phasing three of them out and hoping to replace them with another pair of Classics.  I really feel a Classics collection starting--I purchased my first pair a month ago, and they are awesome.  I'm moving out the 3 pair of Adidas Tour 360's...

Looking at the Adidas Tour 360 if I can find my size in the clearance section.  :D

I currently have in the "rotation"

1 Adidas
2 Pumas
4 Nikes

Before the season starts I'll add at least 2 more pairs (most likely Puma) that will knock out the older Nikes.

I currently have in rotation:

1 pair of Adidas Tour 360 I White/Black/Gold - for really crappy winter weather
4 pair of Adidas Tour 360 II - for range practice and pretty crappy weather
4 pair of Adidas Tour 360 Limited - for summer and good weather use
3 pair of Footjoy Classic Tour for really fancy occasions

I'm an Adidas shoe guy, when it comes to golf shoes and a Nike shoe guy, when it comes to everything else active - tennis, running & fitness

I have 3, but I've been getting a free pair of FJ's from the sales rep each year for most of the time I've been in the golf business.  I generally use them for 2 years and give them to some friends who have my shoe size.

I don't play much anymore so I don't have to worry about wearing them out anytime soon!

I have a pair of FootJoy's I love- generic in color so they match all of my golf clothes.

Damn, 5 or more pairs of golf shoes?  I'd rather put the money into actually playing golf.

I absolutely NEED a new pair of spikes every single time I hit the links. Little smudge, garbage. Speck of dirt, garbage. If im on the course with dirty shoes I play a dirty game, its that simple. I have no time for dirty games and/or shoes.

1 range pair, 1 for rounds.  not trying to be a "ben affleck."  how do you guys with 10 pair of shoes and 3 sets of clubs ever decide what to wear/play on a daily basis?

It's quite easy :)

As I say in my post:

1 pair of Adidas Tour 360 I White/Black/Gold - for really crappy winter weather
4 pair of Adidas Tour 360 II - for range practice and pretty crappy weather
4 pair of Adidas Tour 360 Limited - for summer and good weather use
3 pair of Footjoy Classic Tour for really fancy occasions

Depending on the color of pants and color of shirt I wear that day, I just choose what color shoes to wear :pimp:

Dark shoes for lighter colored pants and lighter colored shoes for darker colored pants - only once in a while will I wear black shoes with black pants (it's too Mike Weird'ish and Gary Player'ish) :D
