New shoes, Titan Ignite, adidas boost 2, LC4? what is everyone wearing this season?

naws-golfernaws-golfer Members Posts: 1,581 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
I'm a shoe guy. I picked up the DNA's last season, and have been fairly happy with them. OF the newer releases, what do you like and why? I'm looking at spiked options only as I have a lot of lower body movement that needs some grip. I think the lunar mont royal are interesting, they look like they have some agressive nobs.



The puma titan tour ignite intrigue me, They didn't fit all that great in the store though. Anyone tried the premium ignite?



I love the LC4, just don't love the swoosh on the toe and the extra $40 to customize some to make it less noticeable



Are the cleats in the adidas boost enough? they look like a spike mix?



Thanks for your thoughts

    Ecco Biom Lace, G2, etc. Comfortable with grip and the biom design. Can find the Biom Lace for $120 or so instead of $240.

    TitanTour Ignite was the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn, right out of the box. Beat my Lunar Control 2's and Ecco Hybrids. Much more stable as well.

    I really like my LC4's. Played in the DNA last year and prefer the LC4s, they are more comfortable and seem to be lower to the ground if that makes any sense. I have a pair of Drive Ones on order so I'm interested to compare them.

    How do they fit to your normal shoes? 1/2 size smaller?



    they look very low to the ground which intriugues me.

    I have a pair of custom LC4s on the way and also a pair of True Linkswear Elements to try as a spikless option.

    Half a size smaller than my Nikes, half a size bigger than my Eccos.

    I have the new Nike Chukka golf shoes. They are great. I love the high top part of it. To me it adds an extra element of stability but I am still able to swing free. Plus they are super comfortable and the high tops are great for rounds that are wet or in the rain. Even though they don't have removable spikes, the spike alternatives work great. I highly recommend them.

    Purchased the white and grey LC4 when they became available earlier this year size 10.5. I clean them after every round as they dirty easy, and courses have been pretty wet through the end of winter here in VA. Only thing I hate about the LC4's is the tongue. It's a fabric material that will not clean back to white.



    I did just buy a pair of the Titan Tour Ignites in the white/blue. I ordered a size 11 and they looked like 13s when I pulled them out of the box. Put them on and they were two sizes to big. Returning them now for a 10. Will leave some feedback on when I get a couple rounds in.

    I love my lc4 and TW15. Both have a different feel but are extremely comfortable. I think I would rather walk in the LC4 and use the TW for range sessions and riding rounds. The Free walk sole is comfortable but my feet are tired at the end of the round.

    I just picked up a pair of Adidas Pure 360 LTDs on Amazon for 85 bucks with free Prime shipping, it is a spiked shoe and the reviews are over the top, can't wait for them to arrive.

    +1. I bought these last season to replace some trusty FJs id worn through. All leather, very durable, extremely comfortable... Very happy with them. Outstanding really. If they had some more styles I'd buy more of them, would like to find more just like these. That's also a great deal. The lowest I found last year I think I paid around 140. They were 199 at release I believe.

    Just snagged some of last year's Titan Tours. I'll probably add the Ignites to my collection before I head to Hawaii next month...or I may cave and order the hi-tops from some site that still is taking pre-orders. Just don't know if I can commit $200.
  • KMeloneyKMeloney Members Posts: 4,832 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I'm wrestling with sizing on the Ignites. I have them in both 11 and 11.5, and I'm trying to figure out which is best. I am 11.5 in the BioDrives, which makes me think I should be an 11.5 in the Ignites, too...
  • schneidm10schneidm10 Members Posts: 384 ✭✭✭✭
    I have the ignite premiums and really like them. Agree with others that they are good to go right out of the box. I would definitely recommend them. I got the same size as my Nike lc2's and they fit great!

    where the last lace hole was, at the top of the tongue, seemed to dig in to my foot.walking around in the store, I just wasn't "wowed" by the comfort as so many others have described.

    I'm with you. I tried them on and they did not feel exceptionally comfortable at all. I wanted to like them but passed.

    For the record, I went with Adidas boost, in all white. My DNA's are still in decent shape and I like them, for when i need lota grip. The boost are crazy comfortable and as much as I walk, I think they'll be perfect. not to mention they were $70.

    I just got two pairs of Dryjoys Casuals delivered today; very comfortable, can't wait to try them out on the course.I liked the clean and simple design, not too busy looking. And I couldn't pass them up for only $60 each (last season's colorways).
