Skechers ! I have these Skechers Performance shoes and I love them.

I also recently picked up a pair and have been raving to all my buddies about them. Incredibly comfortable, stable, great traction, fully waterproof, and easy to clean. In hindsight, I would have gotten the darker colors to not have to worry about mud as much, but the store only had white.

Big fan of Skechers, but the new revelation has been Inesis - the shoes named best value in this year's Spikeless Buyers Guide. They are, without a doubt, the most comfortable golf shoe I've ever worn - the  Skechers are a strong, but very clear, 2nd. Waterproof, stupid comfy and I think they're only $79.  Worn them for about a dozen+ rounds in all kinds of weather - so far, so very, very good...

In my opinion, There is nothing that can beat the quality of Adidas Golf Shoes.

But If I don't mention some other names it will be an injustice.

Skechers & Ecco Biom 2 are the best for playing the whole game without causing any pressure on your feet.

Nike explorer 2 has a phylon coushoning in the mid sole, which is very good for walking.

New Balance NBG518 are good too, but they are not for wet conditions.

Footjoy Pro SL have fitting problems, otherwise they are good too.

Footjoy athletic shoe are a good one too, but they are hard to clean.

Callaway TRX Balboa have no water resistance.

You can learn everything you need to know about golf shoes for walking in here.

I have a dozen pair of golf shoes, FJ(5), Addidas(1), Ecco(2), Nike(2), Puma(2)....and I keep going back to the Dryjoys Tour. I have 2 pair and, yes, they are the heaviest, but they are the most comfortable and when it’s swampy, they are the best to keep your feet dry.

Picked up some FJ Originals Spikeless shoes about a week ago. They are the only shoes I've found that have the arch support I need aside from some GreenJoy Spikeless shoes I owned previously. I will be walking a lot of rounds in these for sure. The Adidas I own are still really good as well, but I've discovered that I need to find some different socks to use with those. The sock I have currently just seem to slip off the back of my foot and then my skin rubs up against the back of the shoe until I get a blister. Had this happen for the first time when I went to Colorado recently (right after purchasing new socks) and I had to limp my way through the last 4 or 5 holes.

I also picked up the Originals recently and I haven't put them in play yet.  I do love the arch support feature!

IF you like zero drop wide toe box try True Linkswear. I swear by them. They had some quality issue a few years ago and I switched to ECCO. But have come back to True and am and will be very very loyal. I walk 95% of the time and these are great. There is also a wide variety to suit your needs. Knits for dry/ dewy conditions and the other for anything you throw at them. Look ‘em up. They are great

I wore Trues for years, but they lost me during the quality control issue era.  I went to Skechers GoGolf shoes, and I've been happy so far, but I will try Trues again; just don't know which ones to get.

I am on my second pair of Pumas and I couldn't be more pleased.  I wrote a quick review in the Cobra Connect Challenge thread.  These shoes are the real deal.

I wear a pair of True Knits to work daily. REALLY love them.

Ordered some Adidas Crossknit Boost for play. They arrive tomorrow, but the reviews on the Boost midsoles are so good across all Adidas product lines, I really look forward to trying them.

 To update my above post... the Adidas showed up, and fit terrible. Long and narrow, with very little heel support.

My absolute favorite shoe is the Ecco Biom series. Styling is questionable, but they are sooo comfortable and last a really long time. 

 

... After wearing athletic style Foot Joys for many years, I picked up a pair of white Ecco Biom Hybrid 3 GTX  in Phoenix. Like you, I found them amazingly comfortable and supportive the very first time I wore them on the course. It was like they were completely broken in right out of the box. I went back and bought a black pair and I rotate them as much as my clothing choice allows.

How is the sizing? I'm seriously considering getting a pair, but it will be an online purchase as there aren't any stores near me.

Thinking about a pair of the True Knits. How long do you get out of them?

How do they hold up playing in the early morning hours with dew/wet turf?

Sorry Shankster, I've only had my pair for a month and a half. Granted, I wear them 10+ hours a day and 5 days a week, but that still wont really give an idea to longevity.

I had a quality control issue with my second order. True sent me a return label, and asked that I email them when I put the returns in the mail. A few minutes after I emailed them to let them know I dropped them off at UPS, I had a new shipping confirmation that the exchange pair was on their way to me.

Pretty pleased with the Customer Service so far.

I have tried a LOT of shoes and brands as has my fiance in attempts to find a comfortable golf shoe for us cart mafia folks. I believe I have found THE shoe, at least for me! The Nike Air Jordan ADG is seriously the most comfortable golf shoe I have ever worn. I am a pretty die hard Adida's apparel guy, so it was hard for me to move to the dark side, but I can't deny how comfortable they area.

The FootJoy Fury Spiked got me around the Straits couese with plenty of comfort and support on some of those crazy dropoffs and inclines.
