Baseball / Lacrosse Turf Shoes on the Course?


Recommended Posts

Curious to get some thoughts on whether some of the newer Baseball and/or Lacrosse Turf shoes would work on the course. I like the look of both of these styles from Nike; one is Mike Trout's Turf Shoe and the other is Lacrosse intended. Seems like both treads could work well on the course, but curious to see if anyone has experimented or have thoughts on potential pros/cons.

 

Both styles got my attention cause I liked the look.

i used to wear an older verision of huaraches (i played lacrosse) and they were perfectly fine. not sure about waterproofing so i only wore them on dry summer days. no issues with slipping or stabilit

id think that stability should be fine, baseball turf shoes are primarily used for taking batting practice or hitting in cages where you're standing on a rubber mat or piece of turf. the shoe might no

Yeah, besides the waterproofing, I wonder about sole and sidewall stability. Most top of the line golf shoes promote their superiority in these areas, thus helping to create a more solid foundation for the swing (purportedly). 

 

That being said, I'm not sure how much different some of the casual and athletic/running spikeless shoes might differ from a turf shoe like the examples shown in the thread. I've also seen a variety of players out on the course in actual running shoes, and they seemed to do ok. 

 

I imagine it all comes down to personal preference.

Agreed on the waterproofing. Like others mentioned, was thinking about dry summer days and mostly about traction. Again, as someone commented, some can manage in running shoes. The build of AM90's for golf don't appear to have more traction these do and I have buddies that play in those with no issue.

 

Really liked the Trout shoe and reminded of the 270 Golf that I have and love.

 id think that stability should be fine, baseball turf shoes are primarily used for taking batting practice or hitting in cages where you're standing on a rubber mat or piece of turf. the shoe might not last quite as long as a gold specific shoe but still be way better than a running shoe.

 

agree with you and everyone else that waterproofing is the main issue. i think they d be a great dry day summer shoe

That's certainly true with baseball. I guess I was thinking more about lacrosse. As long as they aren't wearing traditional metal baseball spikes, I'm generally cool with it. Those baseball spikes do tear up a green.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
