2014 Footwear Offerings - Your Thoughts

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Curious of everyone's thoughts on 2014's footwear offerings from all brands, personally I think there's a lot of ugliness floating around. As well as looks I'm finding with a borderline wide foot many brands are not as accommodating so much or it's hard to find a sweet spot between width and length.

 

Anyways this weekend I must have tried on 20 different shoes. My old go to adidas sizing no longer fits the same and it seems that the brands that do fit are migrating towards the bulky runner look which I detest. I personally want a fancier shoe something with a saddle or wingtips. I can't do "street" shoes since I think the look belongs on the street with a pair of jeans.

 

Anyways let's here your thoughts on favorite brand lineup, quality, looks etc etc

I've liked what's been offered so far this season.

 

It probably makes it easier for me to find shoes because I don't need the wide option.

 

I'm not a big fan of the dressier look cause they look more uncomfortable to me

I've seen some I like and some I don't.  Pretty much the same as past years for me.  I am a bit disappointed in the current Puma offerings as I loved some of their stuff from two years ago.  Adidas always has solid stuff, but I'm not a fan of the colors of this years adizero's.  I do have some loud bright Puma shoes and I look to adidas for the understated shoe with maybe a splash of color.

 

I really want something like an Adipure or Tour 360 in white with some blue accents.  Simple, but still with a splash of color.

 

Overall though I have too many shoes to let me justify another pair to my wife, so I haven't really been looking much this year.

Liking the look of the footjoy city and the Ecco tour hybrid. I do like street shoes but my word I like a classic brogue design....

Puma are strong in 2014. Very strong. Their street shoes are superb - Monolite and Biofusion Mesh are my most used shoes so far. Puma Neo Lux should meet your criteria MBP :) Pure class in modern style.

 

ECCO needs to upgrade their street sole. Everyone is moving forwards, they're still using the Freddiesole. But the Biom shoes are some of the best out there. And Hybrid Tour is the Mona Lisa of golf shoes. 

 

Adidas are still struggling to find out what they want to do. They need consistency. New sole is promising.

 

Nike are doing what adidas should do. Lunar Control must be one of the most popular shoes in the world. FI Impact is an excellent addition and TW is moving in the right direction. I've seen some of the coming models - very exciting stuff.

 

FJ needed drastic change. They're a great company and they showed their class with DNA and City. I'm sure they had to convince themselves that it was the correct decision to go for all markets - not just the classic, traditional golfers.

 

Shoes of the year so far;

Biofusion Mesh

Neo Lux

FI Impact

Hybrid Tour in grey/silver.

 

I've used so many new shoes that I've had blisters for two weeks now :)

Like I need more golf shoes.......when E.W. Went out of business I picked up two pair of FootJoys for $100....DryJoy Tour and BOA Contours........the dryJoys are still in the box....they are exactly like my other pair. The contours have the BOA lacing system and are awesome! I have Narrow width feet so the BOA helps me keep them tight.

 

BTW, I have looked at the new styles, but am not going to pay the high ransom prices.

A little while back I bought myself a pair of the Boa Dry Joys to replace the ones I had which were falling apart, unforunately I had a lot of issues wearing them in and actually lost a toe nail because of it, even though they are starting to wear in more and more now I'm still on the hunt for a new pair of ultra comfy ones I can wear in the dry.

 

Currently I'm liking the look of the Puma Faas lite mesh ones that appear to be very confortable and a very low price point, but are not water proof which doesnt bother me that much.

 

The addicross II also look very good for the price point and the girlfriend likes the look of those a bit more than the III's :)

 

I recently played with an friend that has what I think were the new foot joy DNA shoes and was saying they are the most confortable thing his has even wore, so they are now on the radar even though I was mainly looking for the spikeless street style.

 

A friend has a contact that may be able to get me a pair of the new ashworths that one the mostwanted for around cost price, otherwise I'm not real keen to spend $400+ on a pair of shoes lol

 

Just found out there is an ecco store just around the corner from my girlfriends place as well so will be popping in to have a look at those as well :)

The only ones I've seen lately that I really want to try are the line from Asics. I've only had experience with their wrestling and running shoes but it was all good. Still have two or three pair laying around here somewhere. The golf shoes intrigue me.

Forgot Callaway! They deserve to be mentioned. Ground breaking year for them. New designer. From Reebok? X Cage Vibe is a very good golf shoe. They're shoes are from what I can tell excellent quality and stand out in the crowd. I think there's and Asian influence. I can see some Asics and Mizuno in this years collection.

i like were finally seeing wingtips and cap toes coming back, as ive always been a bit more traditional, but i do like the look of adizero/tour and the fj dna's and m project. i absolutely cannot stand the "casual" look- they look like skate shoes to me- and tiger's shoes look like my septugenarian mother's orthopedic walking shoes.

casuals here, adicross II, FJ contour casual, they look nice, and are way more comfortable than the others. if they arent comfortable at the store, they dont go home.
