once a year is about right, however when I find a pair I like I stick with them, have had a pair of addais that I have sent to the cobbler twice, they are so comfortable I hate to give them up,

I chose the "don't think about it" answer, but it comes out to roughly 2 pairs a year. They are usually pretty worn out/gross after a year's use.

Typically just one pair of spikeless per year that replace the last pair that I wore out from 100+ rounds of walking the course.

Thanks everyone for all of the responses! I know that I fall squarely in the "don't think about it" category.

I typically get a new pair per year, although I've bought two in the past 6 months since I didn't care for the new pair.

With the line getting blurred between "spiked golf shoes" and some regular shoes with the "spike less" concept ... I know wear my regular cross training shoes now.

I have one pair "official" golf shoes that I have had for 3+ years now.

I'd say every 12-18 months. when the support starts to suffer, it's time. that's what prompted my recent change.

Whenever I find a model that fits well, that's about every two years. I will always buy two pairs though, so they last longer

I like to keep a pair of white and a pair of black.
As soon as one of my two pairs isn't waterproof anymore I buy some new ones.

Considering I still am wearing the original Adidas Adizero that look like soccer shoes with soft spikes, I have gone a long time without buying golf shoes. Just bought a spikeless pair - Puma Ignite NXT disc. :)

I literally just replaced a set of spikes. That said, I’d buy a pair this year if there was a good deal, or they were Jordan 4’s.

I bought two new pairs before the 2018 THP Championship and I just bought my newest pair last week. I probably won't get another pair until at least 2021. Probably...

When my old ones start getting ratty, and/or when I see a new pair that I like. Current rotation is two pair of True Linkswear OGs (white and navy/gray), pondering a pair of their knits for summer.

I guess I am a creature of habit, I have three pair of the exact same Footjoy golf shoes. I also have a pair of Footjoy Pro S/L and a pair of Pro S/L BOA.
