Footjoy Golf Shoes User Reviews
I have had these shoes for over a year and whilst comfortable to wear and good to look at I frequently have had spikes go missing on the course. Two of the cleats are deformed from stones and so replacements spikes can't be fitted. I've just returned from a golf trip to Portugal and on the harder, drier grass I lost 3 spikes in one shot. The shop was a Footjoy retailer but didn't have this style of spike and so I played for most of the trip with 4 spikes missing on 1 shoe and 3 on the other.
I recently purchased a pair of hydrolite shoes and decided to replace the cleats with spikes only after I purchased the spikes did I realise the fitting system has altered,now I have no idea what the new system is called , or even if they make spikes or not!
Had my pair since end of May and all ok until I lost a spike on the heel. The cleat fixing must be made of soft plastic and it deformed by just walking on the stone paths of the course so now new spikes can't be fitted into that cleat. Have taken them back to the retailer who is speaking with Footjoy, all very negative at the moment.
After using the new Hydrolite shoes they seemed fine at first but then the cleats started to come out. When I enquired at the pro shop they didn't even know that the cleat type had changed. And two other pro shops didn't have them in stock either. The new fitting is not secure and they come undone with normal use. I have e mailed Footjoy to ask for their comments. Check before you buy.
