2014 Footwear Offerings - Your Thoughts

Recommended Posts

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.

      ECCO® GOLF Introduces S-LITE 
      Revolutionary Design Creates Brand’s Lightest-Ever Leather Golf Shoe    
      (LONDONDERRY, NH) – ECCO – a leading manufacturer of innovative footwear – unveils ECCO S-LITE, a one-of-a-kind hybrid shoe which breaks boundaries as the brand’s lightest-ever leather golf shoe.
       
      ECCO S-LITE takes a fresh, innovative approach to golf shoe design by blending cutting-edge engineering and comfort to ensure an ultra-light on-course experience. A multi-injection production process offers a TPU outsole that’s 66% thinner than ECCO has previously created, perfect as a packable playing option.
       
      “By owning our own tanneries and manufacturing processes, ECCO GOLF continues to find ways to deliver golfers truly distinctive footwear,” says Jesper Thuen, General Manager, ECCO GOLF USA. “This passion for performance and design is exemplified in S-LITE.”
       
      A stylish, diamond-shaped embossing on the ECCO RICH TWO-TONE YAK leather upper reduces weight while increasing comfort, and a soft textile lining provides natural water repellency and breathability.
       
      The E-DTS™ LITE outsole offers on-and-off course traction and durability with exceptional flexibility. A molded leather heel counter and inside toe reinforcement offer additional support ensuring stable footing throughout the swing.
       
      Other unique features and benefits include: Premium, durable ECCO YAK leather, made in the company’s own tanneries  An award-winning E-DTS™ LITE hybrid outsole design that adds more than 100 traction studs and 800 traction angles for excellent grip in all playing conditions  FLUIDFORM™ Technology which is a ‘state change’ process that uses specialized fluid materials to form around an anatomical last, ensuring a finely-tuned balance of cushioning and rebound, while also creating an integral, flexible and durable bond, without the compromises common with stitched or glued assemblies  A PU midsole with a PU wing, wrapping the sides of the foot delivers stability on and off the course  A premium soft leather foot bed that offers a soft feel and natural moisture management  ECCO GOLF shoes are worn in competition around the world by European Ryder Cup Captain Thomas Bjørn, Fred Couples, Lydia Ko, Minjee Lee and Caroline Masson, among others.

      Press Release from Puma
      PUMA Golf is excited to announce a multi-year agreement with four-time major winner Ernie Els. As part of the partnership, Els will serve as a global ambassador and wear PUMA Golf footwear during his professional events.
       
      Els will wear PUMA’s IGNITE PWRADAPT and NXT family of shoes on Tour. The PWRADAPT family of footwear features a cutting-edge traction system with 3-dimensional traction pods and responsive cushioning with IGNITE Foam, for the ideal blend of industry-leading technology, style, comfort and performance. A Comfort Construction mesh bootie replaces a traditional tongue for improved fit, comfort and support, while the PWRFRAME, an ultra-thin TPU frame, is strategically placed in high stress areas on the shoe’s upper for lightweight support and enhanced stability that golfers need to play well on all surfaces and slopes.
       
      “I’m excited about this new relationship with PUMA,” comments Els. “I’ve been wearing their golf shoes since the start of the year and honestly I feel like it’s really been a factor in me catching some form of late. I just feel more grounded with these shoes, like it’s giving me a firmer foundation in my swing. What I also like is the shoe combines stability with lightness and comfort. That’s a tough trick to pull off, but the guys at PUMA have nailed it. I’m very happy to be part of the team.”
       
      “We are honored to have Ernie wearing our footwear and representing our brand on Tour. He is an icon in the international golf world, with an exemplary career both on and off the course, and a huge global presence. We’re excited to welcome him to the PUMA family,” said Dan Ladd, Senior VP of Sales & Marketing, COBRA PUMA GOLF.
       
      See attached for the full press release with additional details. Reach out with any questions!
       
      In honor of the partnership announcement, PUMA made him some custom shoes to wear as he tees-it-up at this week’s RBC Heritage.

      There are some good articles and forums showing off Puma's new Ignite NXT line, like this one:
      But not much in the way of reviews yet. Has anyone tried the Solelace on course or at the driving range? How would you rate it (bonus points if you have used a disc model before and can compare)?
      I have a new pair of the Disc sitting in my office right now because that's (somewhat) proven technology, but I like the look of the Solelace better, so I keep looking down at them debating an exchange (but I'm skeptical... seems like it could be gimmicky). We have about 3 months until golf season starts in Wisconsin, so I'm hoping someone in a warmer climate has actually tried them out and can give some insight to help me with the decision. Thanks!

      This is a press release from adidas golf regarding it's 2019 adicross line.
      CARLSBAD, Calif. (November 28, 2018) – For golfers, the game never stops. adidas is continuing to push the boundaries with adicross, the urban-inspired, non-traditional line that’s meant for golfers both on and off the course. Today, adidas unveiled the 2019 adicross line, highlighted by Primeknit material and new footwear specifically designed for wear-anywhere versatility. The new apparel will be available December 1, 2018 and footwear beginning February 1, 2019.   The spring/summer 2019 adicross apparel line differentiates itself by featuring select articles with adidas’ Primeknit material, a first in the game. Because of its seamless construction, the material wears flatter to the skin, features a lot of stretch, and has a look of a woven garment without losing its shape. These pieces are cool to the body, feature moisture-wicking fabric and will form for individual fit. Key articles include the adicross Primeknit Polo ($110), adicross Primeknit Sweatshirt ($200) and adicross Primeknit Anorak Hoodie ($180).   Other new additions to the adicross spring/summer 2019 line include:   adicross Piqué Polo ($80) Wider at the body with a straight silhouette Shaped hem, soft feel Unique golf print   No-show Transition Henley Shirt ($70) Three-button Henley collar Short sleeves No-show technology stops appearance of sweat before it gets to the surface   adicross Hybrid Shorts ($85) Stretchy fabric Front pockets, one back pocket Drawcord-adjustable elastic waist with zip fly   adicross favorites like the No-Show Transition Polo ($75), Henley Long sleeve ($80), Anorak Jacket ($120), Graphic and Big Logo Tees ($40), Five-Pocket Pants ($90) and shorts ($75), Flat bill hat ($30), and Oxford Shirt ($90), which now features mesh ribbed cuffs, will round out the apparel line.   Continuing to shake up the traditions of the game, the adicross line will also introduce new footwear: the adicross PPF and the Crossknit 3.0.   The latter is the latest rendition of the popular Crossknit franchise that was first introduced in 2016. Built on the same last as adidas’ Ultraboost running shoe, this version will feature a lace closure with reflective laces and internal lace loops, a lightweight water-repellant heathered textile upper and the spikeless Puremotion outsole. The Crossknit 3.0 ($150) available in three colorways (grey, blue, and black with green outsole) is designed for comfort utilizing BOOST™ cushioning without sacrificing traction, favored by players who are looking for something both comfortable and untraditional.   The adicross PPF ($90) is new to the adicross line, giving golfers another non-traditional spikeless footwear option for the course. The sneaker-like upper features leather, microfiber and textile materials to provide a breathable feel that’s also water-repellant. The Puremotion outsole features 169 strategically placed lugs for optimal traction and flexible Bounce midsole cushioning giving wearers a springy feel for wear-anywhere comfort.   Both the Crossknit 3.0 and adicross PPF will be available online at adidas.com and at select retailers worldwide beginning Feb. 1, 2019.   The entire adicross apparel line will be available online at adidas.com and at select retailers worldwide beginning Dec. 1.   Here are just a few images.  You can find more at the above links on the dates listed.
