PostSubject: Golf Shoes - Where to buy and how to choose?   Tue Aug 24, 2010 12:44 am

Hi everyone...

I'm pretty new to this website so I hope someone can answer my queries! I am not even sure if this is the right place to ask this question!

Anyway, I am looking to buy a pair of golf shoes...where is a good place to buy golf shoes where I won't get ripped off? And what should I look out for when I buy one?

Thanks!!!

Sharon

I think the first thing tat we (men and women) look for is design.... if the shoes are fugly, you will not wnat to take a second look even if it has the best technology.

Other things to look out for includes but not limited to:

Technology
Comfort
Price
Peer pressure
Type of studs

yup...agreed with weesern..
i've bought a really nice addidas shoe because of the design but to find out later that the studs are filmsy and rather slippery for early morning golf.

sometimes is your own preference. I like softspikes

I will not go for shoes without removable studs... reason being the studs should wear faster than other parts of the shoes and if the studs are non-removable, I will be wasting the rest of the shoes.

Thats the good thing about online shopping!!!
You can be unique cos the local market doesn't stock these designs...

If cannot wear, can always sell on the Marketplace, confirm will be snapped up

one way to increase the chance of getting the correct size is to try out shoes from the same brand. But it also depends on the style of the shoes

Powerband 2 is at least one season ago model. Thats why it is slightly cheaper. Laterest powerband will cost near $200 or above. Its already Powerband 3 or 4 already.

Anyone seen this before? I like the funky mismatched colors!! Bought a pair but they only come in full sizes locally. I guess im in between sizes so probably should sell....

No worries! They are very comfortable if you happen to try a pair.

Good or bad, I happen to know quite a few ladies that can kick our asses out on the course.
