I tell myself I'm a walker, but I ride at least as much as I walk.  Either way, I want comfort for walking, durability and good traction, both wet and dry.

Interesting to hear everyone's opinion.

Thanks Wrx.

I have a pair of the Superlites that I've had for about 18 months or so now, and they've been great.  I don't have any experience with the Sports.

Thanks Wrxers.

Are the FJ sports what Adam Scott wears?  Just curios, doesn't really make or break a decision.

oscarpepper, thanks for the input, but regarding ICONs I'm a pretty casual dresser and from a comfort standpoint I've heard the ICONs are not anything special.  I have heard the dryjoys tours are great once you break them in, so that may be an option.

Thanks for the input rhyno18 and BMC.

Any other input?

I've got both, and I'd have to say that the Sports, once broken in, are far more comfortable shoes--to me, anyway.

I did exactly what you did, which was get two pair (one black, one white) when they went on closeout for about $70. I'd noticed that a lot of PGA and Euro Tour players wear them--including Adam Scott, yes (as well as McIlroy, Manassero, Watney, and several others)--and thought that was a pretty good deal on a shoe that is apparently considered good enough for competitive use by some of the best in the world. But after I got them I wasn't sure I really liked them. They felt awfully stiff out of the box. After a few rounds with them, though, I came to really like them, and now I pretty much wear them every time I play. They're still somewhat firm, but they feel very stable and supportive.

The Superlites, by contrast, feel really nice right out of the box, but as I've worn them more I've gotten to feel like there's not nearly as much heel stability or support in them, and they are actually kind of uncomfortable if I wear them to walk a full 18--almost as if I had been wearing a pair of loafers that have no heel support at all. Kind of hard to describe, and perhaps not everyone has experienced the same thing. But that's my .02 about both shoes.

The new fj sports are my favorite looking shoes, I wish I had a pair. Tried em on, they were really comfortable, but I'll stick with my cell fusions until I need a new pair. And yes Adam Scott rocks em, they make your feet look smaller too IMO

I didn't vote because I bought a pair of each this year on sale.  Both are comfortable, both wear good.

I just got a pair of the superlites. Very comfortable.  For me they ran a 1/2 size too big.

I have both, both are great. Supertitles better out of the both for walking comfort. Sports a better overall shoe, but took longer to break in. You can not go wrong with either.

Two pairs of Superlights.

all my rounds are walking.   ~60+ a year
Great on the feet for walking or jogging during the round.
Wear out faster than higher $$ shoes but at the $60 price I can live with it.

I have to be careful with shoes due to high arch usually use $30 insoles to replace the Crap from the OEM.

Dryjoys and WetJoys are too roomy to use even with an insole.

Of those two, the sports are far more stable, comfortable, supportive and better looking.  (Well, looks are just personal preference)  I would also recommend the Synr-G, I just bought a pair at my local golf show and really like them.  The sports are the most comfortable FJ shoes, fit like a nice dependable sneaker, just a fraction comfier than Synr-G.  I really didn't care for the superlites as they didn't give me enough stability.  Most sports can be had for $60 now, the superlites are also cheap but I think the Sports a much better shoe and value.  My Synr-G cost $79 (over $100 off baby!) at the show which was of course having sales but most big stores have them for like $100.  Ebay might have them for cheaper.

The cheapest I've seen icons was about $100 on ebay and I would strongly suggest staying away from the Dry Joys Tour.  They fit like a wooden clog. Myself, about a dozen sellers and some other friends agree that they just seem to fit funny.  For the record, I know one seller who said he can hardly sell them and FJ doesn't like that everyone on tour is wearing the $120 shoes rather than these or the $250 icons.  The only guy on tour I can think of that wears the Dry Joys is Ben Crane, or at least, he's the one in all their adds for that shoe.  He must have some messed up feet.

I couldn't handle how the synrg felt when walking, the heel kept lifting up. I have a pair of superlites and just got today a pair of sports. I like the superlites but they don't stay dry very well. The sports are more comfortable and more stable than the superlites.  I would have went with the dry joy tours, but the styling of the new ones I just don't like.

i just got last years blue/white FJ sports on sale at budgetgolf.com

for the price, you really cant beat them! and theyre really comfortable for a golf shoe.

btw, they ran small for me. i typically wear an 11.5 or 12 in Nike, but got an 11 and they fit just right.

Same problem with the SYNR-G great looking shoe, well made, tones of lateral support when swinging, but heel lift is just ridiculous from a higher end shoe from a/ the biggest golf footwear manufacturer. You have to be very careful with sizing to get a good fit

Are we talking the saddle-style Superlites?  Or the more modern looking ones similar to the "Street" that have been on closeout for about a year now?  I have the latter and they are quite narrow... this is one of the main reasons I bought them as I don't care for "traditional" golf shoes with their puffy leather and wide/flat lowers.  They have required some breaking in to really feel flexible enough to walk in.  My main complaint is the included laces are too short for me to tie them appropriately for my foot (a pretty standard 10.5m), but once the laces were replaced with some longer ones they've been great.  They always feel a bit tight when I first put them on but that's gone by the time I've warmed up (15-20 min on the range).
