Most golf shoes are not comfortable - they serve their purpose by being rigid; however, this can make your feet ache after a round of golf. Not so with these shoes. Plenty of flex for when you walk, and enough rigidity to keep your feet firmly planted. Very pleased, and you will be too.

Doesn't feel like a wide, although it was perfect for me because my feet aren't so wide. Once I pulled them out of the box and tried them on, they were so comfortable and snug, I just felt like going for a run in them! These shoes are great! I took them out on the course today and my feet were not sore even one bit. When ordering these, just get half a size bigger than what your feet are exactly. Overall, excellent product!

My son loves these shoes! My 12 year old has gone from a size 12 mens to a 15 mens since May of last year. We have such a hard time finding shoes his size at a good price. We ordered them at 7:30 pm and received them the next day by noon! Incredible shipping department. Thanks Zappos for the quick delivery and great prices! We are repeat customers and will continue to order through Zappos!

Great shoe! It felt like they were broken in the first 18 holes I used them. Feels like I am golfing in a pair of tennis shoes.

I was looking for a shoe with good heal support to use with custom orthotics. I wear Asics tennis shoes for support and thought these might provide the same help. I have worn them on the course twice with good results. I read the reviews before buying and purchased 1/2 size larger. Good decision.

I wear Asics to jog in, and didn't know that they made golf shoes until I found them on Zappos. They are absolutely the most comfortable golf shoe that I have ever purchased, and I bought a second pair 3 weeks after the first pair to have as a spare. Great golf shoes. My Wednesday foursome have complimented the look of the shoe, also. Would, and did, buy again.

Excellent shoe for golfing in the Northwest, where you never know what the weather will be like. I've only worn them once, but they felt so good the first time that I didn't even notice them. What I did notice was that my feet were dry, which is great for a golfer that spends too much time hitting from the rough. The cleats don't get too clogged with grass and they're easy to clean. They're light and comfortable, despite being all synthetic materials. Great shoe.

I like the shoes and for the most part they are very comfortable. The leather in the heel kind of digs into your heel a bit causing some discomfort. But for the most part it's a very comfortable and good looking shoe.

I am a big fan of ASICS running shoes and I walk most of the time when golfing. After reading the reviews I couldn't wait to try out my new shoes. While they are indeed light weight, well made, and provide great traction, they are much stiffer than I would have predicted and gave me a blister both times I walked in them. They are now my cart shoes. Based on the other reviews it could just be my feet, but I was disappointed.

I can see/feel why this shoe gets stellar reviews, it really is comfortable and supportive right out of the box. Tremendous stability and grip. This is my first pair of "athletic" style golf shoes, I've always played in Oxfords before, but I can see why a lot of people have made the switch. But these Asics definitely run small. I'm normally a 13D, sometimes a 12.5 wide, but I needed the 14 for a perfect fit.

Nice shoe. Soft 1st time worn. I ordered a 1/2 size larger based on other reviews and the width is perfect for me; a little big, but not much.

I have had these shoes for only a month; walked nine rounds of golf so far and they are the most comfortable golf shoes that I have ever worn. Time will tell how durable they are. So far I am very happy and am considering buying a second pair before they change the model.

I've been playing golf for over fifteen years. I have owned different styles of Nike's, Adidas, FJ, and Pumas. I can honestly say I've never owned a more comfortable shoe. These were a great fit straight out of the box. I don't usually take the time to review products, but felt I owed it to other golfers to know about this ridiculously comfortable shoe! Thank you Asics, for breaking into the golf market!

Just wow. Without exception, the most comfortable pair of golf shoes I've purchased in 30 years of playing golf. I'd say it fits true to size. They're a bit snug widthwise, but they feel great and I'd not want it any looser for fear of blisters. I'm fairly sure that, if / when I need another pair, I'm just getting these again...if it ain't broke.

Good looking shoe. I wear 11.5 Asics running shoes. These were just too narrow. Need to offer in a wider version. I wish it fit. Going with Nike EE width.

Bought these because I have always found Asics running shoes to be very comfortable. These shoes upheld that tradition. In fact, they are hands down the most comfortable golf shoe I have ever worn. They provide a super stable platform, look great, and are very water proof. I am through with the big name golf shoes. And Zappos had them at a price that beat the heck out of The XXX superstore.

Great golf shoe. I was worried about using anything other than Footjoy or Nike but it felt great. The fit was very similar to their running shoes.

What I like about them is they are extremely comfortable, fairly priced and not as common as other brands worn at most clubs.

I waited a 2 months before writing this review. I wear orthotics in my shoes and I wanted to be sure that they would work in these shoes. These shoes are perfect for me. Very comfortable, flexible yet very stable, and they seem very durable as well. I did need to buy them 1/2 size bigger. I will definitely buy another pair when I need them. I wore Footjoy Countours for years, but will never go back now that I have tried these shoes. My only complaint is that the tongue on the left shoe slides over to the left after walking some distance, but this is no big deal.

These shoes are what a golf shoe should feel like a little snug till you start hitting balls then you don't even notice at all. They hug your feet and make it feel like walking on a cloud they are worth the money. Thanks hope this helps.
