  1. I'll keep them in mind. My blade putter needs a new cover, but not really digging the designs they currently have. Hopefully more are coming.
  2. If it's a collab with Olivia Kim, then are these only going to be in women's sizes? Like the furry Black Cats from last year? I would have loved the regular Black Cats as a golf shoe. This is an easy pass for me.
  3. They are just using the best images of the shoes available. All the other sneaker news sources do the same. The info on release dates comes generally come from when vendors are told when to release the sneakers. Also with all these pandemic related and port related issues, sneaker release dates are constantly getting pushed back. Even if Nike is telling you the release date, take it with a grain of salt.
  4. I'm the same! I'm a lefty, but my dad really tried to make me a righty. I had a left handed baseball glove growing up, so was basically a Jim Abbott playing baseball. I should note that I was horrid in baseball and only batted right. Learning golf my dad would teach me with his clubs, so I had no choice to be a righty in golf. To me my golf swing feels more like a one arm back hand in tennis. All the power and accuracy is from the left arm with my right arm just along for the ride. I'm getting better at incorporating my right arm into the swing, but feel like I can never fully achieve the power and consistency that I think I can get to unless I completely start from scratch and swing lefty.
  5. I would be happy with more AM 95s, 97s, or 1s... Nike went way too hard on the 90s last season.
  6. Weird that they would use the Next% branding and not use Zoom X in the midsole. But Zoom X would have made the shoes very unstable. I personally like that they are using a traditional tongue and increased forefoot volume. These will definitely fit my feet better.
  7. A pain I know all too well. I have a big head too and haver an added problem of being extra wide. I can never find fitted hats that fit at all. Also when I do finds a fitted hat that fits, the brim is still the same as smaller sizes and the shape is off, so I can never get a nice curve to the brim. Same problem with sunglasses. Nearly all "XL" sunglasses are not nearly wide enough or the arms long enough to properly go around my ears. The ONLY thing that matches, is I'm currently using a TM glove and my irons are TM... although I am not loyal to any company for gloves. I just pick whatever is on sale and fits.
  8. Looks running inspired. The Zoom Air pods in the fore foot and midsole shape looks similar to Next%.
  9. Yeah definitely just regular outsoles. The silhouette looks like the Jordan 1 OG low. Typically, the AJ1 "OG" low version uses better leather than the AJ1 "Retro" low version. Also the CW is very reminiscent of the Dior Jordan 1 low that came out last year. So yeah, most definitely you, me and many others will be eating Ls on this one.
  10. I can see how Nike's waffle soles could be fairly decent for grip. Retro runners are back in style, so Nike has a bunch of models with the waffle sole. Even other companies have some deep groove retro runners like New Balance 327, Puma Future Riders, or Adidas ZX 8000 (this one is similar to the ZX golf shoe). Although, these would all suck in wet conditions with no waterproofing.
  11. I love Swag putter covers. I wasn't paying attention and this dropped today: Anyone know how quickly these covers sell out? I checked at about an hour after launch and they were sold out. Is this a thing like sneakers where it sells out in seconds? I think Swag has made all the Street Fighter 2 characters. Hopefully they make more in different colors or they keep going with Super SFFII Turbo characters. I would love to get an Akuma putter cover.
  12. There are some companies like Crep that make the marker, but it's far cheaper and easier to find the original product people are using to re-whiten Boost: Sharpie Oil Based White paint marker.
  13. The CodeChaos are identical to the original 2020 version. Makes me wonder if these new CWs was pushed back from last year. But I do like the paint design. The white/blue is definitely on my shopping list.
  14. https://www.thesurgeon.com/products/j1-low-srgn-dior-lux-golf-cleat-size-9-us-mens For the low, low price of $15,000.

  16. I'm personally hoping for AM97s. It is the 25th anniversary year of the 97s next year.
  17. Try Nike? You can wear the shoes and still return them within 60 days.
  18. This year I was all about Adidas. I bought a couple of other shoes, but my top 3 is completely Adidas. #3: ZG21. Functionally great. Not very breathable and not as comfortable as others. Mostly only used for those really rainy days. #2: Solarthon. The UltraBoost midsole is super comfortable and traction is decent. Loses some points because the waterproofing is not great and the weird tongue. It's just a bunch on unnecessary material that could have been trimmed down to make the shoe much more breathable. Who needs a pocket in the tongue? Mostly only used for those really dry days. #1: CodeChaos 21. The Boost is solid. Not quite as comfy at the Solarthon, but they have been my go to shoe lately. Great grip, great waterproofing, great comfort. I get that many think they are ugly, but I personally like the look of them.
  19. Seeing how expensive the Next% running shoe line is... I'm guessing these will have a big price hike. Haven't seen any leaked photos or specs, but I am into running shoes. I'm guessing minimally, there will be ZoomX foam instead of React. Maybe Air Zoom? Maybe a carbon plate? Just hope it doesn't have a massive stack height like the trend in running shoes lately.
  20. I have the Ogio Woode 8 Hybrid bag. There's no issues with clubs tangling. The one I got was black with some red accents. I do have some complaints with the bag. - The hard top cover of the slots does rub against the clubs. It hasn't damaged my clubs, but it has worn out the stickers (that I was too lazy to take off) on some of my irons. - While tangling isn't an issue, the grips of the golf clubs can snag on the top cover. This happens a lot with my putter (Super Stroke Pistol GTR grip). This issue alone is probably why OP will hate this bag. - The straps are nice and plush, but have no grip. They keep sliding off my shoulders. I don't carry often, so it's not a big deal for me. Most of the time, I'm pushing a cart. Also I wish they had a quick release on the straps. Overall, it's still a quality bag and good enough for me that I'm not going to buy another bag for a while, but I wouldn't recommend it.
  21. Just search for "retractable stool". You'll find lots of different companies making them and different places selling them.
  22. I have this issue with the ZG21. I got the white/grey/light blue ones. The toe box area has some random stains of pollen and dirt that just won't come out. Even after a good brushing and a full cycle in the washing machine. I tried soft and medium bristle brushes with different sneaker cleaners and nothing works. Don't want to try harder brushes at it would destroy the material.
  23. 5 new CWs for the ZG21 line. 2 of them being mid tops with BOA lacing. In Canada, we only got the black/grey and the grey/blue and no BOA. I really like that blue/white CW. It's kinda good Canada didn't get many of the CWs. I definitely don't need new golf shoes.
