i kind of like them.  i was looking into a spikeles shoe and tried on the ecco biom hybrids at golfsmith and did not like the way they felt at all.  I think I will try these on and maybe buy the all white leather spikeless option.

they look pretty cool in person.  and they are very lightweight   should be at least a good range shoe.  i'm thinking it will help with balance since it's not as "grippy" as some of the others (i.e. XPS)

I'm interested in seeing these in person, feeling them, trying them on, etc...  I think they look decent.  First FJ show I've had any interest in for several years now.

Looking forward to seeing them.  I like Skechers.  Can't stand the skateboard looking spikeless, especially on the older guys like Vijay, Ernie and Fred.

I think the black ones with spikes maybe the next shoe purchase. I am also interested in spikeless, but my ecco's are still good to go.

I like the look of the all white pair, but wish they didn't have that green accent.  Also wondering how much traction the spikeless model provides.

The shoe is based on a minimist design. Looks may be important but it wasn't FJ priority. Plenty of other good looking shoes on the market these ones are all performance! I know these were in the making for the last couple of years. Dr. Greg Rose at TPI has been talking about the M project for some time. Lots of r&d went into these and I can only expect they will be the best minimist design golf shoe out there!

I can't wait for mine to arrive. I believe Scott Stallings wore them one or more days of the Humana Challenge

I have been wearing Callaway shoes for a couple of years and have been relatively pleased with their performance.  While I my shoes are solid and stable, at times they feel more like ski boots than they do comfortable sport shoe.  Perhaps it is because of the shape of my feet (10.5 US, slightly wider than average).  

With this in mind, several months ago I considered purchasing a pair of Adidas Puremotion spikeless golf shoes, however the white/silver model that I wanted were not available in wide, so i did not make the purchase.

Now, several months later, 2 newly released models caught my eye.  

1.  FootJoy M: Project and
2011_us_55124.jpg

2. Adizero Sport.  
adizero-sport-672204-rngwht-blck-vdyllw.jpg

Primaily because the FJ are offered in an extra wide size, i decided to go with the M: Project over the Adizero.

I'm not a huge fan of the cross stitching especially on the black/white model that i selected however i think that the overall style of the shoe is more than tolerable.  They look very soft and responsive.  Cant wait to get these babies on the course and see if my feet reach a state of Zen.

I've learned a lot of shoes are comfortable while trying them on and for the first 9 holes of walking (Eccos streets), but not many stay comfortable for an entire round that don't have some sort of thick arch support and cushy sole (TW 13). These look really nice for about 5 holes, and then my feet may notice there's not enough material providing a cushy feel. I wonder if that guess is true?

I hear ya.  Hoping for some on course reviews of all the new shoes, I'm in the market for a second pair thats different from the icons I wear now.  Looking for something sportier to switch it up, your a big fan of the tw13's?
