Duca Del Cosma Shoe - Vinci - Official MGS Forum Review by @Dragon3
Hi All! I'm thrilled to be able to lend my expertise and passion for the game. I'm a golfer who enjoys playing but also watching and analyzing the sport, products, business, history, etc. It's all encompassing. I'm a wealth of knowledge and experience and bring a unique perspective and spin on things. I'm good at reading the greens. And I have made contributions through other similar venues.
While I always had an interest in my twenties, I knew it would be an investment. I actually got my start when I stepped in for my brother for a charitable golf tournament. I was told I was better than him and the rest is history. The biggest complement I ever received was that I had "natural ability" from Brandt Snedeker. While I remain competitive, I do wish that I could afford to get to the course more often. But the time and quality is always well spent. And if I can't get in a round of -9 or -18, preferably, you'll see me practicing at the driving range, putting and chipping. I've never had a professional handicap even though I have been golfing for many years. I also like to combine golf in my travels, to golf a new course. That has been hampered so to speak. My average score is 108-111 and fluctuates. Perfecting the shot was always more important to me than the score. I'm not sure about my swing tempo. Hopefully it's 3:1. My driver swing speed has been clocked between 90-103. My typical ball flight is low to mid. My misses are the slice and inconsistent pitching. Putting is my strength. My drives can be a strength and weakness. My chipping has gotten better.
You can say I'm fashion forward and have an eye for both ladies and men fashions. So this is a nice fit for me. As for shoes, I still have my Puma IGNITE given to me at the launch I attended. I also have Callaway's Solaire that I purchased based on the features. I have yet to break these in. Since, I walk the course comfort and durability are at the top of my priority list . I actually don't have any preconceived expectations. Since there are limited options for ladies, ranging from clubs, bags, apparel, accessories, etc. I make my contributions and inquiries known when asked upon and whenever the opportunity affords itself. While it is getting better, there's always more that can be done in this space. And when you're petite, there are additional challenges and limited options.
Hope you gain some insight.
It’s all in the presentation. And if first impressions are anything, it’s hands down quality at its finestI took a short video to capture the unveiling. Golf meets high end fashion, so to speak. Belissima! Loved the color and design. The roundness of the front will take a slight adjustment in aesthetics. It is modern and fashionable, while adhering to the traditional.
From my experience with Italian apparel and shoes they run a bit smaller, which is generally great for me. And did a comparison with my Puma IGNITE and you could witness that the Vinci was noticeably smaller. Since it’s a patent leather, laminate and neoprene, it might feel rather stiff and tight within the toe area or squished based upon the socks worn and/or season of the year. And if you feel a slight looseness in the heel, I generally would use Compeed or Band-Aid blister care for added comfort. While it was not required this time, as I had time to break in prior to hitting the course to avoid any pain or discomfort. Your feet will thank you too! While it may have been recommended to size up, a whole size would probably have been too big.
This shoe was definitely suited for me “the fashion-conscious golfer.” Always looking for versatility while not compromising on innovation nor aesthetics.
“The Airplay VII is a new outsole designed by Duca del Cosma for stability to make the perfect swing while enjoying the spotlight on and off the course. Its innovative design combines form and function, perfect both on and off the course. Lightweight, flexible, super comfortable and fun to wear in in a two-tone design with oversized nubs.”
