i was at transview mandarin gallery today and saw some italian brand golf shoes with rubber (?) spikes. very nice designs.

i was told ecco also makes them - http://www.golfgalaxy.com/MNSSTRTPRMRBRWN/Product?ad_id=GoogleBase&key_id=MNSSTRTPRMRBRWN_GoogleBase

they look like they would be really comfortable but not sure abt the grip and stability it offers, or if it is even officially allowed.

would be grateful if anyone here who has had any experience with this type of 'spikes' provide some insight.

cheers!

I have worn such shoes (have 2 pairs in 2 different brands) frequently and never been stopped by a marshal because of them. No issues with grip or stability at all. Yes, you are right. It is as comfortable as they look and best of all, no need to bring another pair of shoes to change out.

hi Gino

thanks for the reply.

do they get worn out quickly if you use it for normal wear on hard ground?

Only if you are a dragger. Just kidding. The instructions did say that they will wear out quicker if you start wearing them like normal shoes and they see a lot of hard surfaces (which is logical). I only wear them for golfing and the journey to and fro so I can't say how much faster.

I second Gino's opinion.

I have a pair of Ecco Street Premiers as well and I must say they are very comfortable to wear both to the game and during the game. The do look a bit odd at first since you feel like you are wearing a pair of sneakers rather than "proper" golf shoes. But you get used them.

I wear them when I am heading to the range or par 3's and wldnt be bothered going to the showers after that.
