Recommended Posts

Never heard of them until today, but they sound great! Reportedly available 4/1. 1st in Comfort, 1st in Traction and 3rd in Elements - if I was confident in sizing I'd order today!

They look really sharp! I hope they become available in Canada as I'm always worried about ordering shoes online.

I ordered a pair last week, will post my thoughts when they arrive!

Much appreciated, I’d be interested in how sizes run from your experience. I’d order sight unseen if I was sure about what size I’d need.

Shoes just arrived today, they had some trouble with shipping to Canada.

I ordered size 14, they fit perfectly.

I wear size 15 in Nike Air Max 90 G

I wear size 14 in Adidas tour 360 but could easily go size 15.

Will take them out for a range session today and update.

Good timing. I ordered size 13, and they arrived last Fri. Gorgeous and they look very well made. Walked/played 18 yesterday and they felt great, comfy right out of the box, but I need more rounds to be sure. I wear a size 12 in Adidas, golf and running shoes, though by the end of a round my CodeChaos feel tight. The Payntr felt a little bigger, but more comfy at the end of the round and not too big. So as MGS noted, you might want a 1/2 size bigger Payntr vs Adidas - but it appears to be a small difference if any.

So I’ve had my Payntrs for 4 weeks, and I love them. They are more comfortable than my (previous favorite) CodeChaos, and better traction. I’ll take MGS word for better stability, but the sole seems a little stiffer so makes sense. Build quality is superior to Adidas, you can see and feel that when you have them in hand. If they are able to strike a deal to sell at PGA Superstore’s they should sell well in time. I can’t imagine they’ll do that well strictly DTC - I'll blow $40ish to try a new ball, but I won't blow $190 to try a shoe I've never seen that might not fit (with no free return exchange).

Update: They’re at PGAS now https://www.pgatoursuperstore.com/golf-shoes-viewall/?prefn1=brand&prefv1=Payntr Golf&j=40186&sfmc_sub=29085760&l=64_HTML&u=1442966&mid=526003662&jb=17020&utm_source=sfmc&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=060322_Promotion_NewArrivals_PrintedPolos_Payntr_TeamEffort_CallawayRogue_TaylorMadeStealth&utm_term=Golf+Footwear+Men+Pantr&utm_id=40186&sfmc_id=29085760&et_rid=29085760&mi_u=29085760&mi_ecmp=060322_Promotion_NewArrivals_PrintedPolos_Payntr_TeamEffort_CallawayRogue_TaylorMadeStealth

I have the 001s and absolutely love them. Chose them over the 002s as from my understanding the only difference Is the upper material. Synthetic vs. Leather.

Great shoe that no one knows about. Not sure how they break through. PGA Superstore has them now, but I have yet to see them "in stock" at stores. Of the 3 pairs of golf shoes I own and wear, the Payntrs are my favorites.

Mine are holding up very well after 5 months, no signs of any wear but I do expect at least a few years from my golf shoes. I am considering buying another pair in gray, but I am waiting to see if they add BOA to their lineup. I asked about BOA and the answer was basically you never know.

Update: I started this thread. I bought a pair of white Payntr X 002 LE's in early May. I choose them because of the ratings MGS gave them - 1st in Comfort, 1st in Traction and 3rd in Elements. Since I walk 18 at least once a week, comfort is a very high priority for my old feet. I have been very pleased with them, they are better golf shoes than any Foot Joys or Adidas Codechaos (my prior favorites) I have ever owned.

I was thinking about another color way and considering another pair of Payntrs, but I've read reviews and testimonials elsewhere about the Biom C4's, and several of my regular golf buds swear by their Ecco golf shoes. So I caved and bought a pair of gray Ecco Biom C4's - despite the high price. They are shockingly comfortable, even more than the Payntr's IME. Where my feet are starting to ache when I get to the last couple holes in any other shoe including the Payntr's, I haven't had any foot pain wearing the C4's through 18!!!

So I guess I don't know what "comfort" means in testing, maybe what I was looking for was specifically cushioning which is a subset of comfort?

As much as I like the Payntr's, the Biom C4's are incredibly MORE comfortable and so far no issues whatsoever in traction or elements, including 1 round where the course was very soggy. FWIW

Well it doesn't appear the Payntr is catching on in the USA. I am completely satisfied with my Paynter 002's after almost 18 months, including quite a few walking rounds. However, my Ecco Boom C4's are just as good for comfort, traction and stability, although they cost $30 more than the Payntrs. I have yet to see anyone else wearing Payntr golf shoes, and only 1 person in over 150 rounds has ever even noticed or asked about mine...

I was going to grab their deal on the 001's, but they're out of my size in the colors I wanted. So I'll have to wait for another sale.

I reached out to their support team to get details on sizing, as like the Ecco they're hard to find locally to try on. I gave them a handful of shoes and sizes and they gave me their recommendations. Great to hear they're as comfy as MGS says they are. I like the fact they're cheaper than Ecco, but still have high quality and comfort. My Skechers are horrible on the comfort side, even after riding.

Even though I wore a size 12 Foot Joy and Adidas golf shoes, you may have noticed I bought size 13 in Payntr and glad I did, they fit perfect. My Ecco’s are also size 13, also glad I ordered that size. A 12 in either would fit fine in a store, but they’d be a little tight after walking 18. FWIW

Ecco support told me to buy an EU 45 and Payntr said to buy an 11.5. My current ASICS are 11's and my Skechers are 11.5. I shared the details of all my current and some past shoes and sizes and these are what they told me they'd recommend. I think one of my pro shops carries Ecco, so I might be able to try them on. But Payntr's are not close (PGATSS isn't within an hour of me), so I'd rely on their recommendation. My feet are about a 1/4 size difference in length, so I think the 11.5 should work and that's probably where I'll start. If I have to pay shipping for an exchange, so be it.
