Hot weather golf shoes

Finally found a pair of Adidas adipower 4orged 11.5W. Will give them a go tomorrow night. They feel pretty comfy! Maybe not quite as wide as the Tour boost 360 but certainly very light.

I’d love to get the model of these. I too have a narrow (and flat!) foot and need a summer shoe. 

I think they are Skechers GoLo? It says ‘quick fit’ above the heel. No other model number or name on the shoe. I bought two years ago, so that exact model may not be available, but I know they still make breathable models. Mine are very comfortable.

Man, it’s hot down here, and I haven’t noticed a single shoe that’s “cooler” than another in 100* heat. Would a solid black leather shoe be hotter on the foot? Probably, but it’s not like I notice and say, “Hey! My feet are REALLY cool today!” Fabric shoes just give me the sense of less support, and being lighter. Maybe my feet sweat less in my all black Pumas, but they still sweat!

... I went for another pair of Tour 360 Primeknit. I'm hoping these last longer.

 

Well, I'm sorry to say they did not last longer (see below). It seemed like DJ was sporting a pair this weekend at the Traveler's, but they were unblemished to the degree I wonder if he wears them more than once. Certainly not long enough for the foam to completely break down.

I went with the CodeChaos this time. They've lasted three weeks, so here's hoping.

Socks will be as important as the shoe. Kentwool, bombas and stance imo do a great job at helping. I wore stance socks with some adidas powerboost this weekend in hot and humid weather with no issues. I’ve worn the stance with my jordans as well and no issues.

Thats crazy, my impression was that the issue with boost is that over the course of a year or 2 of continuous wear, people could feel it start to "bottom out" when they walked. I am shocked to see that the actual midsole is breaking down. How long did that take?

Haven't tried "custom shoes", however I did go to an Ecco Store (not retail box store like Golf Galaxy or PGA Store) and got fitted for Ecco's. Manager at Ecco Store was extremely helpful. I looked for comfort, stability in shoe and ease on back. Figured if Ecco's are good enough for Freddy Couples lower back, then it was worth a try. My podiatrist also advised against soft mesh shoes, but something firm. Went with Ecco Biom Hybrid 2 spikeless and I put my own inserts in shoes

@Flip4000 for the first pair, about two months. The second was less than that. I walk about 3-4 rounds per week, but still, it's not like we're talking about a kleenex or a take out coffee cup.

Yeah your story would definitely scare me away from those shoes in the future, since they dont seem to last
