2020 Official Member Review: SQAIRZ Golf Shoes


Recommended Posts

Today's session was testing the claim that Sqairz shoes can or will increase swing speed. 

My method. Wearing each shoe in turn, take 10 swings with swing speed measured by the radar device that was included with another training aid I've used. (initials SS). To be fair to the first pair of shoes, I followed up with another 6 swings at the end allowing for warmup and increased confidence etc. The good news was I was having a really good ball striking day so I think I got some good data and hit a bunch of really good shots. Also, the range was mats only today so that should have been providing max grip for each shoe and eliminated deteriorating turf condition as a variable. The bad news, mats only meant these are 8 iron swings. I'll try to repeat a version of this test later with drivers to see if the results hold.

Same contenders as tested for measurements. Johnston & Murphy XC4, FJ Freestyle, Addidas Adiboost Boa, and Sqairz Arrow. The radar reading in the photos is the last swing recorded for each shoe. Reported data is the average of 10 recorded swings for each shoe. Discarded outliers were for exceptionally poor contact or radar recording ball speed rather than club.

Johnston & Murphy XC4: Avg Swing Speed 77, max 86 min 73

Sqairz Arrow: Avg swing speed: 80.78; Max 88 Min 76

I'll admit, going into this testing opportunity I was a bit skeptical of the added swing speed claim. I'll admit also to being a bit surprised at these results. Throughout the test I was doing my best to maintain consistency of effort and the results bear out the claim as "Plausible" in Mythbusters terminology. The average swing speed for the Sqairz was 3mph better than the lowest average and 1.5 mph better than the next fastest, along with having the most consistent speed range.

There were a few swings scattered throughout the test that I discarded because the radar picked up the ball speed rather than the club. On a couple of those the ball speed readout was 108 mph. On those few balls I could visibly detect an increase in distance. Same with the swings that measured 85 plus on the radar. Otherwise, the distances were all pretty close. 

Then I went to the putting green, and OH..MY..GOSH! But I'll write that part up separately and later.

Here's one thing the Forum members at large should hear about as the test is getting started. Typically, and here as well, testers work through the administrators to communicate to the equipment

Played 36 holes on Saturday wearing the Sqairz basically all day on the course and between rounds. The shoes stayed comfortable and stable all day long. I could tell I had been active and on my f

It’s already been noted here that Bob wants the best for the testers here, and it turns out he’s a pretty cool guy too.   Figured I’d drop this in the testing thread but he saw a photo of my olde

Also the square toes do help with alignment, I even noticed it on the putting green. 

I'll make a separate write up later, but my putting practice with these shoes on was an eye-opener for sure.

I may have missed this. But did you wear the shoes in the order that you posted. JM, FJ, Adidas, and Squarz last?

Yes, that was the order I worked through. Then went back at the end and did 6 more swings in the JMs to allow for getting warmed up.

Okay, so.. after my last test session, I wore the Sqairz over to the putting green and went through some putting practice and drills. 

Here's a breakdown of my usual routine. Start with a gate drill at 3 feet. Next is a ladder drill putting from 3/6/9 feet on the same line (I added 12 feet a couple of times this time). Next is lag putting from 25 feet (10 balls along the arc for changing line/break), then same at 30 feet. I'll describe my wrap up game in a bit. Let me just say, the Sqairz shoes provided some surprising results, and I tried another drill in the middle that wasn't very productive in a good way.

With the gate drill, I usually go through 30 or 40 putts for that one. In 30 putts this time, I missed... ONCE. (typically I'll miss 2 or 3). That made me happy so I moved on to the ladder drill.

3/6/9 ladder - I'm typically 90+% at 3 feet, around 50% at 6, and 25% at 9. I got a little better at 6 feet and saw 66%, and 33% at 9 feet. Let me tell you I'm all for anything that can extend my confident make range out beyond 6 feet.

25 foot arc lag putting. I did this drill twice (20 putts). I made 3 and with the exception of 2 putts all the misses were within 2 feet. This is a little better than usual, but it seemed like I got really dialed in on the speed really quickly.

I hit 10 putts from 30 feet. Zero makes on the arc drill, but again all 10 were within 3 feet and at least 2 burned the edge.

I attempted to do another ladder drill, putting tees in the ground at 10, 20 and 30 feet and planning to go up and back putting to the distance. I had to stop because too many balls were impacting previous putted balls and I couldn't get a good measure. So line was pretty consistent.

My last drill I've decided to call Cricket. I place a ball on a tee and then put 10 balls down on the green. Then I choose a random spot starting at a distance of about 15 feet and, using my normal on course routine, putt to knock the ball off the tee. If I do so in 2 putts or less that ball is 'out' and goes in my pocket, and I continue gradually increasing distance until I 'side out' all 10 balls. This is where it gets interesting. I only had 2 balls that took more than one round to putt out (one of those cases was being too nonchalant about putting to a target no wider than a tee). Funny story.. I hit a putt from about 30 feet that nestled up against the tee, but didn't knock the ball off. Another gentleman out there putting, laughed and said 'I bet you can't make that happen again'. We chuckled a bit, and I moved to another spot about 35 feet away, and rolled the very next putt up against the tee without dropping the ball 😂.

Again, the only difference between performing these drills with my old shoes on is utilizing the square toe on the Sqairz. That difference being, once I had my putter aligned to my desired target line, all I did was line up the toes square to the putter alignment aid. Initially it felt a little bit off but I trusted it, and WOW. It appears to have actually made a difference.

Trust me, I'm gonna do this again.

The only issue I see with testing this way is that it wasn’t blinded. You knew you had just put-on the Scares, and that they “should make you swing faster”. Possible placebo effect here. Plus, statistical analysis is needed to truly tell of any gains are “statistically significant”.

Yep, I’m a doubting Thomas. But, at minimum, the tests need to be blind.

That is great stuff Greg, sounds like a ton of putts, a   couple hundred all told?   My back would be killing me with that much putting practice!   Some fun drills though to keep it interesting.   

Great results as well.

I guess the best way to do this would be not see the radar and have someone else log the speeds?

Not sure how is best, but it has to be blinded. Technically, the shoes would have to be covered. There’s a feel difference that would give it away, probably.

That’s why Scares claims to me don’t hold water....

So I eluded to an earlier post that we hadn't mentioned the laces yet.  SQAIRZ calls them the Sta-Put Laces.  That keeps the shoes comfortable without having to retire them.   I do know I have a couple pair of shoe, golf and casual that do come loose after a bit. 

So the technology in the Sta-Put is rather simple, but very effective.  In layman's terms, I'll just say they have little nubs of rubber or some material spaced up and down the laces, that when they come into contact with other parts  of the lace...they well Stay Put 🙂    You get a really secure feel from the laces once they are tied, and unlike other shoes I've had, I haven't had to tighten them once during play. 

In a shoe that is designed to provide stability and transfer of energy, Bob and his team definitely looked at al aspects.

Yep. There are lots of holes in this analysis, anecdotal at best. Data is misused all the time...I’m surprised the MGS staff accepts this, they definitely know better.

Come on, if you don't understand the difference between Most Wanted Testing on the main site and forum testing, then I don't even know if anything I can say will make a difference to you.

I think most will take the information that is provided here---just like they do in every other forum test--and decide if the shoes are worth trying for themselves.   

That's really all there is to it.

I believe so, and I will in the next week get some actual LM data, between these and my FJ Pro SL, even though it'll be received by some as insignificant 🙂

I believe so, and I will in the next week get some actual LM data, between these and my FJ Pro SL, even though it'll be received by some as insignificant 🙂 

 

I guess you need to put your feet through dark plastic trash bags and close your eyes, have somebody else put whatever shoes on you under the bags,  then swish on over to the practice tee and take some swing speed readings.     🤔     😊  Maybe mix it up a little and have them put a different brand on each foot!

Don't forget turning yourself into a swing robot to eliminate all the other variable parts of the swing that affect efficiencies of motion etc., so the only possible variable is the invisible shoes....

Took them to the range today. I was a little concerned about the comfort after trying them on at home and walking around a bit, but they were more comfortable than expected. Of course they're going to look a bit odd at first with the square toe, but I forgot about it pretty fast and just went amongst my business. I brought my usual shoes to compare a but. The Sqairz definitely have great stability, and I felt more comfortable with the traction. I am going to walk 18 with them this weekend, and will report back on how my feet and legs hold up with the Sqairz.

That is great stuff Greg, sounds like a ton of putts, a   couple hundred all told?   My back would be killing me with that much putting practice!   Some fun drills though to keep it interesting.   
Great results as well.


My back hurt just reading it! :)

Great review so far Greg - I love your approach. I hadn’t imagined the difference a show might make for putting.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.
