TESTERS ANNOUNCED! As we tweak swings and equipment to maximize every bit of potential, then, we'll be watching with interest to see if these SQAIRZ shoes can unlock a fraction more ball speed fo

TESTERS ANNOUNCED! The stats are clear: hitting the ball further is a huge advantage in scoring lower. Even after the first round of the Masters, when 62-year-old Larry Mize tied bulked-up-Bryson

I need to throw in an extra announcement here: when I first posted the SQAIRZ shoes testers, I included @jb0330. After announcing it, the mods realized that we had just picked him to do the Hogan Long

Hi this is Chet from Ohio

Man, I would love to test these for you.

My Shoe Size is 11.

Currently I wear True Linkswear nearly every time I play. If its really sloppy out and I feel I need to go with a spiked shoe then I go with my Ecco Cage Spiked shoe. 

I always feel the most important thing when trying out golf shoes is comfort. After all, who wants to play 36 when your feet are hurting after the first nine? The second most important thing would be grip. 

I've actually done a shoe test in the past just for myself. I was curious how my shoes might affect my performance. So, I went to the range with my launch monitor and 3 pairs of shoes. 

 

Here's my test. 

1 - First I thoroughly warmed up. Stretched out, hit a bunch of balls. Prepped as if I was going to play an actual round of golf. I used my driver which I have been fit for. 

2 - Next, I hit 5 balls with the driver wearing each of 4 different footwear options. Barefooted (yeah, it was like 45 degrees out), In my Ecco Cage Golf Shoes with Soft Spikes, In a pair of Puma Cross trainers. (Regular athletic shoes, but with a pretty aggressive tread pattern), then the last 5 balls I hit wearing my True LinksWear Night Camo Originals. 

3 - After those 20 balls, I went into the clubhouse and chit-chatted for 5-10 minutes. Sort of clear my pallet. 

4 - Went back outside and hit 20 more balls. I hit 5 with each pair of footwear, but this time in the opposite order. First the True Linkswear, then the Cross trainers, then the Soft Spikes and the last 5 I hit barefooted again.

So, what do my results show? I got the worst carry distance, swing speed, and smash factor without any shoes. Everything else was pretty close. You could say that the True Linkswear won out. Those are the shoes I normally wear for playing or practicing, so they may have had a familiarity advantage. Also, the ground was moist and cold, but I wouldn't have called it slippery. So, in poorer conditions it may swing a different direction. I will also say that I think I can do a little better barefooted if I practiced that way a bit. It felt weird and I was pretty self conscious while I was doing it. Although, I think most people who saw me assumed it was some kind of training I was working on. 

This was a fun experiment and I love it if more people would try it and see what they get. After doing it, I'm going to guess that if I did it on a different day I may get different results. If I tallied all the golf shots I hit from now until the rest of my life. I'd be surprised if soft spikes out perform the True Linkswear shoes in any situation other than the most extreme cases of slippery conditions. 

What do you all think?

A pair of Adidas and a pair of Under Armour (I trade off because of the reason listed below.)

I have multiple neuropathies (damaged nerves) in my feet so I am hoping that the square toe will provide more room and therefore be more comfortable for walking 18 holes than the myriad of shoes that I have tried.

Testers Wanted (4)

Everyone wants more distance right! 

Distance is created by you and the use of the ground; it’s not the club.  Consider for a moment, the club is merely an implement or conduit to facilitate energy transfer from the ground into the ball.  You, the golfer create a vertical force initiated by a weight shift followed by the downswing which sends energy into the ground (action); the ground acts like a trampoline (reaction) and sends that energy back up through your feet into your body and into the club head.  This process is called Ground Force Reaction.  SQAIRZ golf shoes with its unique square toe design, is the first golf shoe designed to more effectively and scientifically effectuate energy transfer providing more consistent ball striking and increased distance.

 SQAIRZ_GolfShoes-13.jpg

Independent testing by Golf Laboratories, Inc. showed an average increase of 2.2 MPH and 8.8 yards increase while wearing SQAIRZ versus the leading brands.  For those of you who find this hard to believe, it’s based on proof not promise supported by science and independent testing.  Newton’s Third law states “If an object A (you, the golfer) exerts a force on object B (the ground), then object B must exert a force of equal magnitude and opposite direction back on object A.  

 SQAIRZ_GolfShoes-8.jpg

Ever wonder why tour player and long ball hitters like Tiger Woods and Justin Thomas are up on their toes while making contact with the ball?  It’s because they are throwing so much energy into the ground that the return energy is literally lifting them up as that energy moves throughout their body and into the club head.  It is this Ground Force Reaction and your connection to the ground that produces distance.  SQAIRZ with its patented square toe design and wider base under the forefoot allows you to create more efficient energy transfer and increase your distance.
