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. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. 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.

Getting back in to walking 18......my shoes arent cutting it.

    Same here; I've got the green Superfeet insert in ALL my shoes, golf, running and casual. Went to them many years ago after a long bout of plantars fascitis in both feet, and they've made all the difference for me. I don't think very many shoes have an arch support that is adequate for somebody with even an average arch, much less a high one. 6 plus miles is a long way to walk without really, really good arch supports, and most shoes, even very expensive ones, just don't have that.

    OP, what you are getting here is everybody's personal recommendation of what shoe fits their feet. The reason that there are so many opinions is because people's feet are different, and what feels great to one guy is going to cripple another. I can't wear Nikes or Footjoys; my foot is too wide across the toe box, but narrow at the heel, so that a extra wide shoe feels too loose. So I run in Asics, and walk golf courses in Eccos, but that's for MY foot.

    My best advice would be to get to a REALLY good running store and let somebody who knows what they are doing take a look at your foot, and work from there. Shoes of different brands are cut on different lasts, and a size 12 in one shoe won't be the same as another. Maybe find a running shoe that feels right, and then head to the golf store and see if you can find a golf shoe that is cut the same way.

    And don't sleep on the idea of arch supports, ok? They're expensive, especially on top of a new $150+ pair of shoes, but your feet are a REALLY bad place to save money if you plan to walk a golf course.

    Just picked up a few pairs. These are true linkswear outsiders. Older model but brand new via eBay. Just have them on to try in the house first. My feet have been having issues. I have bunions and also if hot I get blisters on heels easily. i have a pair of true linkswear knits in transit also. If the knots feel good I’m going to buy the true linkswear feels. Any more feedback on this brand? I’ve been wearing Footjoy classics for a Long time. Love the traditional look.

    ive also been trying some different socks. Bought a pair of kentwood tour series and tried in the house this week. Very comfy. Not cheap but if they work I’m ok with splurging for a few more. Also tried a pair of balega. This is what I wore a few weeks ago with footjoys that killed my feet.

    Yes. I wear my Roshes when walking, and my Dryjoys Tour when riding.

    I find the sneaker-like shoes are better for walking, but the more traditional "golf" shoes have more stability and help my footwork.

    Thanks. I haven’t yet tried in the course. Do they breathe well? They seem very comfy and padded. Where do you buy? Tried a New pair on eBay For $12. Still a lot for a pair of socks but.....

    I think wool is a great fabric. They keep me warm in the winter, but not hot in the summer. I think you will find that they are well worth the price.

    This. I only wear cleats when I’m on the range or playing for money. Otherwise I’m wearing sneakers with great grip.

    I’ve dealt with Achilles tendinitis and gout over the last several years. Pretty sure it was influenced by 1) wearing worn out shoes for too long, 2) picking up cheap, ill-fitting, zero-drop golf shoes off eBay.

    Since then, I’ve found Skechers Elite to be a comfortable fit, pretty neutral so they work well with my orthotics. Been walking in FJ SL Pro this year, plenty of toe structure and the excellent heel comfort. Skechers Pro when I ride.

    Adidas boost = cloud nine. For me

    anyone one gone from adidas boost golf shoes to anything different that’s better for walking recs?

    The Nike ZITs are the most comfortable shoe for walking that I've tried. The Adidas Code Chaos were second. However, the grip and lateral stability on the ZITs were horrible for me. The Code Chaos had much better grip and stability, but not quite as good as I like.

    Given that, the Nike React Vapor 2's and the Adidas Tour 360 XT Primeknits provide the best combo of lightweight comfort, traction, and stability for me for walking.

    I do prefer the React technology over the Boost for comfort, but I would happily wear either.

    I walk pretty much every round and the most comfortable shoes I've worn are the UA HOVR Drive and the ASICS Gel-Course Duo. Of the two, I would give the edge to the ASICS because of the BOA lacing system. The HOVR Drive is a great shoe, but the laces loosen easily.
