  3. My feet have definitely seen there fair share of abuse through a decade plus of work boots/steel toes so I can some what relate my man. My foot gets widest at the ballad of my feet but in a funny shape. This makes me excited with the adidas, due to the fact it was the best fitting shoe in standard (medium) sizing. If for any reason that they don’t break in and shape to my foot the way I’m anticipating they will, I will re-order another pair of 10.5’s but in a wide. The rest of the fit should stay the same from what I learned trying on what some would call “way too many shoes”. Appreciate your
  4. The pro’s were at another shoe I really wanted to try but the shop did not have them and I’m not the biggest fan of ordering a shoe blindly without getting to try it on first. Glad your feet stayed dry even when Mother Nature tried to say otherwise! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. The battle is over! Want to thank everyone of my spies that gave their insight, feedback, and helpful knowledge & opinions on this debate. Drum Roll please........ The winning cleat is The Adidas Tour 360 XT-SL! When you hold the two side by side, at first they big look premium and outstanding. But when you start taking a closer look, the build quality of the Adidas outshines the puma and made my choice an easy one once I had the proper amount of time to evaluate each thoroughly. -The spikes on the pumas felt like I could peel them off using just my fingers, and were incredibly flex
  6. Appreciate he valuable feedback my friend! I can proudly say I found my winning ticket at the shop yesterday after hitting a few balls on the simulator and taking some putts to ensure I made the right choice and wouldn’t have regret down the road. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. I’m thinking that’s the winner. After seeing a few too many reviews of the Ignite PWRADAPT clears falling off less than ten rounds into them. I’d hate to waste store credit on something that won’t survive an entire season Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  9. I wear a 10.5-11 in Most Nike’s, 11 In Jordan’s. 10.5 in puma was good on length, but slightly snug for width (not sure how much break in would compensate for this) 11 in the Puma was a good width, but felt a little long. Width was just right out of the box though. As for the adidas I was only able to try on a pair of 10.5’s in the XT-SL with regular width. And I feel like a wide would have fit better, but there were none in store to try on. I’ll be heading back today to try on more pairs and take some notes on the fits. Hope this helps for now though!

  10. Ben / Minnesota Unofficial = 15-20 range. I have indeed used a putting aid before, and it was puttout! (Shoutout to Mark Crossfield for putting me on to it.) It worked wonders on my short game, until I borrowed it to my neighbor to make him a believer as well and his dog shredded it too pieces last Fall. Still with only using it for a little over a month, indoors on fairly thick carpet, it made a huge difference in my ability to control pace when putting on the course. I visualize it on the green still on my putts 6’ or less. Aim small, miss small. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Challenge Accepted! Might take me some time to accumulate 9 rounds with a newborn and busy schedule. But I promise I will keep the next 9 score cards and post pictures once I hit that point. Hopefully by round 10, the theory will have payed off. With only a handful of rounds under my belt for the season. I feel like my golf game is stronger than ever, yet my scores at the end do not reflect as so. This could just be me setting unrealistic expectations of shooting 40 or better every round. But there’s one thing I’ve noticed in each round. There is a “tipping point” where I realize shooting an
  12. Snug was something I noticed as well on the pumas. Trying on a 10.5 and an 11 felt almost identical in width on my foot, with the biggest difference being the 11 added about 1/4-1/2” of space between the ends of my toes and the ends of my feet. My toes didn’t touch the end of the shoe in the 10.5 to begin with, but just felt a little TOO snug in width. Not sure how well they break in width wise, or if the contributing factor is the sock liner inside them. Either way, I appreciate your feedback my man! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  14. This is great feedback! I have indeed read a few great write ups discussing the affect of a shoe on your swing. This makes sense in my head on the stability as well, because when I looked at the bottoms of all the shoes, the minimal amount of spikes / most of the spikes positioned towards the center of the shoe rather than outer sole on the pumas had me slightly afraid to put them into play in case I ever got after the ball a little hard. I wish I could say my swing was one or the other. Some days I feel like I’m swinging out of my shoes and going after the ball, but this is only when I’m in
  15. Honestly this makes me rethink my approach a little bit. I was straying from the spike-less route at first due to fear of slipping feet and leaving traction on the table. I feel more likely to slip during the swing more than when walking to my ball, around course, etc. being a rider 75% of the time too my shoes get less packed with dirt and grass than people who walk the course would. The shoes I wore the day I went in to the store were a pair of puma casual runners with Ignite bottoms, and are some of the most comfortable shoes i own making them daily drivers. I was comparing comfort levels o
