Most Wanted: 2018 Spikeless Shoes

Recommended Posts

Nicely done as always, but I'm missing a column from the features chart.  I'd love for them to add if a shoe is available with BOA/Disc.  It's the first feature I look for in a new shoe these days.

 

Tying shoes is for suckers

Just bought my first pair of boa's as I currently have two different width feet. (Refer to the “injury” thread... ) These are not spikeless, but I agree on boa/no boa being important criteria for golf shoe reviews.

I'm interested in trying a pair of True Linkswear shoes.  I have wide feet and being an old coot comfort is my main objective. R

I have two pair of the second place finishing Skechers and love them!

 

Never have tried BOA shoes but they seem like a good idea. May have to give them a shot in the future.

Great info to think about when buying new golf shoes, just in time. I was looking at the Sketchers V.3 combination of good price, functionality, and comfort

I have wide feet and I was looking at some True Linkswear also, I much prefer the Outsider vs the Original.

Crazy to see TrueLinkswear so low on the chart...and the subsequent social media blitz they instructed on MGS. I really want to get a pair of the True Knit Gent that's supposed to be coming out soon...and a pair of the Adidas Boost PowerKnit 2.0 (which weren't reviewed).

 

While I like the idea of BOA, the lack of consistent pressure and fit across the shoe is a deal breaker for me. BOA is real good at having a stable fit in one area of the shoe but loose in another.

 

I wonder how the new Nike Tour Premier quick shoe laces work out with fit. It looks...innovative.

Hmmm I've got a pair of these. Haven't had that issue. But I've never worn them in the rain. Just heavy dew. Thanks for the heads up.

      Hey everyone I am looking to get a new pair of golf shoes and I see that more and more brands are offering boa systems with their seemed like previously it was just footjoy employing the system, but now adidas, Nike and even Puma are all on board with some sort of boa-type system. I know they are supposed to supply a more secure hold throughout the round, but what other benefits are there? For people that made the switch, what made you try them out and stick with the system? And does anyone know what the acceptance is on tour? Any input is appreciated. And if there is another forum that already talks about it, drop me the link and I will check it out. Thanks!

      MGS STAFF REVIEW
      BIION FOOTWEAR

       
      Written by: Dan Mann
       
      My Dearest BIION,
       
      I'm writing you this letter so you'll always know the impact you've had on my life. I'll never forget that night I came across your profile online as it's burned into my memory for all eternity.
       
       

       
      A LITTLE ABOUT ME:
       
      I'm a touch old-fashioned with traditional roots and an Oxford Brogue style. I like to think I'm re-defining the classic Oxford theme, but with a spikeless twist.
       
      I'm super comfortable, waterproof, washable, anti-microbial, and odor-resistant. My EVA material makes me the lightest catch in town.
       
      I have a Dual-Density Midsole, meaning I'm shock-absorbent and really stable.
       
      People constantly compliment me on my spikeless ‘honeycomb' pattern cleats, saying how I'm always increasing their grip.
       
      Most of all I like to think I'm an original design that pays homage to timeless Oxford silhouettes. I'll dazzle you with my five collections and over 30 styles.
       
       

       
      I messaged you that night; I could barely sleep with anticipation of your reply. Morning came and I unlocked my phone, there was a notification, it was you. My palms got sweaty and I giggled like girls passing notes in class . Then you made me the happiest man in the world.
       
      “Meet me Saturday morning at eight?”
       
       
      IT'S A DATE
       

       
      When I first gazed upon you BIION I was shocked. “How could this be the same loafer?” I asked myself. Is this really what EVA is? You don't exactly look like you do in your in your profile photos. I mean, I knew you were EVA but I thought you'd feel a little more luxurious for your prices.
       
      Anyways it's a date so I sucked it up. You did look pretty all done up in your fancy packaging, bold colours and stylish trimmings.
       
      And then, I tried you on.
       

       
      Biion, you were so comfy and airy on my toes, my heart raced like a schoolboy during his first kiss.
       
      Your inner sole felt a little slick against my socks; I stopped and took them off. Wow, you really knew how to get a guy's attention by letting him bare it all. We made some unforgettable shots on the course that day thanks to your increased stability and your vivid colour pallet certainly turned a lot of heads.
       
      It was all going so well and then I waded into that damp rough…
       

       
      Wait a minute, you didn't warn me those air holes on top would let water in! You lied to me saying your material is waterproof. Now my feet were are all wet, how did you expect me to go into that bunker?
       
      We ended our date fast and quickly went our separate ways.
       
       
      IT MUST HAVE BEEN LOVE
       

       
      As the week went by all I could think about was the weekend and the chance of seeing you again. I'd spent many a late nights matching all your styles with every piece of my wardrobe; “I'm going to need more belts!” I exclaimed.  
       
      Then you texted; “Saturday at 9?”
       
      Here in pleasantly mild Vancouver, I live in flip flops from May until October and you, BIION, are the first shoe that comes even close to that love on the golf course. You feel so open and free, yet somehow you mold gently to my feet. Your comfort can only be described of that like a warm cup of cocoa on a cold winter's morn.
       

       
      Your Dual-Density Midsole has a massage like effect while giving me more than ample stability. I'm really shocked how solid your honeycomb cleat pattern feels over every shot.
       
      Let's not forget how light you are either, I hear the angels' harps as we float through the clouds.
       
      But what about that dew you ask? OK I get it now; your materials are waterproof, but not the overall shoe. However, this is what makes you special. A little water on the toes is not a big deal; it quickly evaporates and dries because you're so airy. My playing partner just complained her socks are all wet from trudging through the damp rough in her street style shoes.
       

       
      And when the round's all over, I simply take you off and run you under a tap. There, all clean. Then a quick towel down and back onto my feet for perhaps a stylish clubhouse lunch or drinks on the patio.
       
       
      THE WRAP
       

       
      We took another long, beautiful fall walk today amongst the dew soaked leaves. My feet are soaked, but I see your inner beauty now. It's no secret I want you for less, but perhaps that's a "me not you thing", as it seems everyone we talk to expects you to cost at least a hundred dollars or more.
       
      In all honesty my feet have never felt as good as when I'm with you BIION and I'm sure glad I went down a size as recommended.
       
      I wish we had spent our entire lives together, but no sense living in the past. We've got a long and bright future ahead of us.
