    Mine last a couple of years, they just start to look scruffy eventually. Splashed out on some my joys last xmas and they will last another 12 months. My partners seem to buy a pair and wear them continuously, often keeping them in the car boot, and don’t get much less wear.

    I'm a handicap golfer in my 50's. Any opinions I have about golf equipment or professional golfers or the game in general should be taken as seriously as you would the opinions of a random guy in the fourball ahead of you who just shot 92 but is usually better than that.

    Couple of years as a minimum.



    My current rotation is:



    FootJoy Icon Black - 3.5 years

    FootJoy MyJoy Icons - 9 months

    FootJoy Icon - 18 months

    FootJoy DNA 2.0's - 2 years



    I then have an older pair of Icon's and a pair of FJ Sports that are a little scuffed up and starting to become a little unloved when it comes to keeping them as clean as I should be they are abut 6 years old each and still do a job.



    If you look after them and rotate them, a well made pair of shoes should last for as long as you need them to.

    50-60 rounds every year.




    You could maybe double that if you weren't out with the toothbrush every round! Haha.

    Well, I was wondering about removing the spikes and the toothbrush treatment after every round part.

    I've had mine for a little over a year. They still appear to be waterproof, so I'm just going to play them until I notice otherwise and replace at that time.



    If your shoes aren't comfortable to walk in any more, just buy new insoles.

    I've had a few pairs of adidas and nike that have lasted multiple seasons. I can usually get about 2 rounds in with brand new FJ's before they start leaking.

    Usually after a year or so, I find styles I like better so I just toss the old ones out. May have a pair or two that are pushing 2 years and soon will be gone.

    With proper care and usage you can easily get several years from a good pair of shoes. I have several pairs of Footjoy Classics that are about 20 years old that still look great. I don’t have the heart to toss them even though I rarely wear them now (heavy shoe relative to today’s models). Buy a decent shoe, rotate it’s use (multiple pairs needed if daily golfer), and routinely apply a good leather preservative. Currently I’m rotating Icon Blacks and Dryjoy Tours (depending course wetness). All are in their third season and still look good. Don’t expect to buy a single pair of cheap shoes, wear them daily, abuse them (no shoe trees), and get a long service life.

    My shoes last a long time. I currently play at least 100 rounds a year, and all of the shoes in my rotation are more than two years old:

    1) True "originals" - I bought these soon after True started selling shoes, maybe ten years ago. I didn't wear them for about 8 years, so they are still if great shape.

    2) FJ Hyperflex Boa - 2+ years old

    3) FJ Hyperflex - 3-4 years old

    4) Adidas Tour 360 Ltd. - >15 years old, but still my favorite. I only wear them once in a while because they are a bit tattered. Still look okay if I polish them after each round.

    5) FJ Dryjoys Fusion - > 20 years old(?). Nice old style saddle shoe. Still comfortable and waterproof after all this time.



    Maybe my shoes last so long because I never use power carts. Shoes need exercise to stay in shape!

    Wore my Adidas spikeless all season, almost to the day one year before receiving new shoes this year. They held up great for the most part, but I noticed I started to slip quite a bit more towards the end of November this year.

    When it gets hot, I tend to wear TEVA sandals, unless I'm going to a course with serious rough. Current golf shoes have been used 2 seasons.
  • caniac6caniac6 Members Posts: 2,703 ✭✭
    I get multiple pair of shoes, and rotate them, so they last several years. I walk almost all the time, but I am easy on my shoes. Also, I clean my shoes after every round.

    I normally walk 40+ rounds a year. I had great success with some Nike TW 2013 that I wore for 5+ years. I have struggled to find a good replacement since they finally fell apart on me. The new puma shoes have been catching my eye for the upcoming season
