I was wondering if those of you who've had the oppurtunity to wear any of the following golf shoes might let me know of your experience or any preference you might have to any of them. I'm ready to move on from my greenjoys and narrowed my choices to these few. Apart from reading reviews my choices consist barely beyond looks and customer service recomendations, as trying a shoe on in the store does not tell me what they'll feel like as I'm walking the course. Adidas tour 360 atv, Nike air zoom tw 2012, Nike zoom advance, Footjoy contour series priced at $99, as the shop man told me this was one their best sellers. Please let me know your thoughts and I thank you.

I had a pair of 360 ATVs for a while, and they were incredibly comfortable and gave a really good grip in all conditions. Unfortunately however, the sole is far too aggressive, and I ended up selling them on ebay as I hated seeing how they chewed up the greens. If you're considering Adidas, I would go for Adipures instead.

I've never worn Nike shoes, and don't intend to, and haven't worn Footjoy since they stopped making Classics, so I can't help you with the other options you mentioned.

Have you considered Puma? They make some awesome shoes. I have a few pairs of their Super Cell Fusion Ice LE, and a couple pairs of Neo Classic Protype, and I think they are the best shoes available right now.

Agree the 360 ATV's are super comfy. I also have some Nike Lunars which are also very comfy, lightweight and look more traditional than the Adidas pair.

I have worn the previous three versions of the Adidis 360 prior to the ATV.  They are comfortable and very good shoes.  However, I bought a pair of Nike Lunar Controls this year and they are more comfortable in my opinion.  The Nike's are quite a bit lighter in weight than the 360s.  I don't know if the weight makes that much difference or if the Nike's are that much more comfortable, but I feel much less tired after walking 18 in the Nikes versus 360s.  I have suffered from planter fasciatis in the past and pay close attention to comfortable golf shoes.  Can't go wrong with either shoe, but the Nikes work better for me.

Contours are very comfortable. As a grown man I refuse to use the word "comfy." ;)

If you have a wider foot Adidas and Nike are going to be narrow. Some of the models you mention have wide versions.
