Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts or PM's. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

    After every round i wipe them down with a wet towel and dry them. place then in a shoe tree. Every other month i wash the laces and do a toothbrush clean and polish.

    Clean the light colored golf shoes right after the round is crutial. If you wait for the dirt and grass stain to settle, then it'll soak into the leather and more work to clean/polish.
    I always put a coat of water proof coating on the new shoes, the layer will prevent the soil and stain from settle into the pores of the leather. Refesh every once in awhile to keep the protective coating on the shoes. 3M makes the shoe spray under several brands.

    Wipe down with a wet cloth. I use some warm soapy water and a brush if necessary. If they are really wet, I stuff them with newspaper while drying out. Polish and then use beeswax.

    In a separate thread someone posted, as well as above here, about using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. I bought one and it cleaned my Air Max 1's right up. I never thought to put the laces in the washing machine and that's next on my list.

    Warm soapy water and a microfiber towel. White shoe polish when needed.

    Clean stuff stays clean and is easier to clean.

    Mine are not real leather, but rather whatever material Nike makes their shoes out of. The waterproof leather"ish" ones though not flyknit. Anyways I clean mine after most rounds but when I want a deep clean I take out the insoles and throw them in the wash with the whites and some bleach. I then let them air dry. They come out looking brand new!

    For those that have used the Magic Eraser, was the finish of the leather compromised at all considering it's an abrasive?

    Mr Clean Magic Eraser.
    it's all you need. I use it on all of my regular sneakers and golf shoes.

    Nothing to think about, get it wet and it cleans in 1 wipe. Use it on my concords, AM1's, Cement 3, etc golf shoes and never an issue.

    Just a sneaker addict whose sneaker collection has transformed to a golf shoe collection :)

    anyone have any tips on how to fix a scuff on the toe of my white tour 360's? It scraped off a little on the surface and looks dark underneath.

    And also- I use the magic eraser for all of my golf shoes- works great. I just got a pack of the magic eraser sheets to try out

    no problem with putting in washing machine but bleach will yellow white soles,I just wipe down well and use a nail brush with ivory soap on the soles

    I agree with wiping down the shoes after each round to keep them looking good and minimize the need for shoe polish to cover the dirt stains. I've used Magic Erasers, but I was a little bit concerned about the long term effect on the leather. Lately I've been using Lexol leather cleaner and Lexol leather preservative. Its normal use is for cleaning automobile leather seats, but it works great for cleaning leather golf shoes. The shoe polish I use to restore the color to white shoes is Foot Joy White Paste Wax Polish. It's the best white shoe polish I've ever found.
