GolfWRX x TRENDYGOLF USA: The hottest trends in golf footwear today – Nostalgia

Published

on

GolfWRX is and has been the destination for golf gear for some time—that is, everything that goes in your golf bag. But in addition to our best-in-the-industry coverage of club launches and what’s being played on tour, we want to bring you more info about exciting apparel and footwear trends in general and launches in particular.

The golf apparel and footwear landscape has changed massively since we launched the GolfWRX forums in 2008—long gone are the days of tent-sized polo shirts and saddle shoes as the only shows in town. To help play our way through the current course, we’re leaning on TRENDYGOLF USA, the self-professed “institution that wants to bring the latest designs from the trendiest designers around the world to the forefront of fashion, both on and off course.”

At GolfWRX, we believe the folks at TG USA are doing just that, and we couldn’t be happier to have them helping us with yardages and putt-reading, as it were.

For the first article in our series, we’re going to take a look at the dynamic and rapidly evolving world of golf footwear. TRENDYGOLF USA classifies golf footwear informally in the “nostalgia,” “functionality,” and “hype” categories.

First up, we’re taking a look at the nostalgia-inspired footwear. At once a new category in the golf footwear realm and the longest-tenured, the “nostalgia” footlocker is stocked with everything from the classic leather styles tour pros have favored for decades to footwear inspired by the iconic sneaker models of the ’80s and ’90s.

So lace ‘em up, and let’s walk this “nostalgia” landscape together!

Nostalgia

Lots of golfers grew up playing in this style shoe and they are still offered in various designs today.

Best forged game improvement irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing forged game improvement irons. WRXer ‘Monks66’ is on the hunt with more forgiveness, saying

“I currently play the Mizzy JPX Pro 825s, love them, but I don’t play as much golf these days, wondering if there is a forged iron out there with more forgiveness….thoughts?”

And our members have been sharing their best picks in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • tigercolt77: “You’ll get a lot of answers, and it comes down to what look/feel you prefer. I’d go with Callaway Apex cf19 personally. They check all the boxes.”
  • blopar: “Srixon ZX5 or PXG 0211, I have a set of each. Right now, I’m lovin’ the PXG’s.”
  • R5Two: “I would recommend hitting the ZX7, it has more forgiveness than you would think. Also, forged face insert T200 are great this year. +1 for the PXG sale is fire.”
  • 20six: “Mizuno Comp-EZ, if they could be found.”
