Skechers cross trainers. I don't play where there is a lot of rain.  I didn't realize that so many players still wore spikes. This is an interesting topic, thanks for starting it.

They are considering spikes to be replaceable soft spikes as these are now considered to be spiked shoes; the discussion is not about the old metal spikes that are generally not allowed on courses anymore.

I know they don't allow metal spikes here, wasn't sure about other parts of the country. I guess you would have to know the shoes that were named specifically in the original post are not metal spikes, which I didn't know. Around here we don't count replaceable soft spikes as spiked shoes, as hardly anyone plays in regular golf shoes anyway. Nice to learn what others are thinking in the nomenclature area. Have a great day.

Spiked shoes are the ones that have replaceable spikes; not the metal ones you are thinking of.   Spikeless typically have rubber nubs of some kind that cannot be replaced when they wear out.

Ohhhhh okay gotcha. Thank you for clearing that up for me.

Interesting, even the golf manufacturers and resellers use the spiked and spikeless designation for current shoe offerings.
