So I'm deciding between the Icons or the DryJoys and was wondering the pro's and con's to each.  Mainly, I was wondering which are more comfortable.  I've had several dryjoys but I've been all ecco as of the past 4-5 years so I don't really remember how comfortable they were.  The Icons look like they might be a bit stiff?  Obviously ecco makes a great shoe but I'm just looking to add another shoe into the rotation and have it narrowed down between these 2.  Thanks in advance!

Icons are very comfortable right out of the box

Thanks for the feedback.  Anyone else have an opinion?  What about when compared to the adipures? If I remember correctly, adidas does run a bit more narrow than FJ, correct?  I normally wear a 11 in athletic shoes but I think I wore a 10.5 in FJ and I know I wore an 11 in adidas.

Different lasts fit different feet. The one that fits will be the more comfortable, surely.

I agree. I have 4 pair of Icons and they're great. Every time I try on a DryJoy or Dryjoy Tour they just feel really stiff compared to the Icons. They might break in with time but the Icons feel great from day one and work for me. I walk about half the time so a good shoe is important to me.

I've had several pair of Icons and would agree with the earlier posts.  Great right out of the box.

Icons look a lot more professional and old school. I have 4 pair and love every single one of them.

I second this! I got a pair of Icon Boa's towards the end of last year and I can't take them off.

Try them both on and find out. I personally wear dryjoy tours and love them. Straight out of the box they are the best for me. I always walk the course and shoulder carry my bag and my feet never hurt.

I vote dryjoys tour. The icons just feel too stiff for me. I really love the way the icons look and wish they fit me.

I prefer the Dryjoys. I recently tried on both and the Dryjoys were more comfortable. To each his own.

I agree with the ICON choice, but they do feel a bit heavier.  Something to keep in mind.

Not to confuse things but golf shoes are performance items just like your golf shafts but on your feet... When I was at FJ headquarters last Year I spent some time in their simulator testing the surface contact of the different shoes, I found that the XPS were better for me over icons and dry joys...bummer nice I have a bunch of icons!
