i honestly dont see how the yak leather on my ecco bioms will ever crack. they are as soft and maleable today as they were when i first got them nearly 2 years ago.

Sorry, I was talking about 'normal' leather which I would imagine 99% of people here will have their shoes made of - I wasn't even aware of shoes made from yak leather? - I have had Ecco shoes before though so I will check out their yak range ... Paul

just wondered if anyone had seen these?
are Mizuno's fittings more like the tight of adidas or the generous nature of FJ?

Mizuno fittings are tight, just like some Adidas shoes I had a few years ago.  I have the Stability shoe and the plastic support in one of the heels has cracked after 2 seasons of use.  Still wearable but the right foot sometimes 'squeaks' as I walk.

Most shoes only come with a limited waterproof guarentee these days .If you look after them ,they will look after your feet when needed.I still have shoes from 5 yrs ago which are still waterproof to this day.Obviously they wouldn't if i was wading around in water but under normal winter conditions they are fine.I do have 5 pairs which i rotate,giving them time to dry naturally before i reapply the polish !! Other than that buy a pair with Goretex in the lining.

It all depends on how heavy you are on shoes, I'm far from light footed so most shoes rarely last me beyond a couple of years and to have 5 is a luxury beyond my budget.

I do have a couple for summer but one of those is usually on its way out and used for the evening knock I get to have occasionally. Ive now been looking at the adidas Adizero Tour which come with a 2 year guarantee.

any views on these?

I haven't brought a pair of shoes since last May when i got 2 pairs of Footjoy dryjoys for £120.Before that was a pair of Myjoys i got as a xmas present and then before that was another 2 and 3 yrs before.Like i said if you look after them.As far as the Adizero tour go,i think they are synthetic leather,hence the 2 yr guarentee,Too slim fitting for my feet i'm afraid but i know a lot of guys who use them!!

Let’s be clear after every game and within an hour or so of getting home my clubs are cleaned, thoroughly dried and put away, my bag wiped down if a little muddy as are my shoes. Both are dried naturally and as soon as they are the shoes are polished or in the case of the Ecco winter ones a bit of dubbing rubbed on (better water-proofing) they have shoe stretchers put back in and put away. It may sound a little an*l (ask my partners about my fastidiousness) but these things are not cheap and with a little looking after they will last longer.

Having said that all shoes crease over the toes where we naturally bend our feet and eventually that leads to a crack in the leather and more specifically the coating thus the ending of their water proofing.


I didn't realise the Adidas Adizero where synthetic so as I need to let my feet breathe I'll have to look elsewhere.
