    I recently picked up Adidasí Tech Response from Dickís on an emergency basis and love them. I prefer athletic-styled shoes with spikes because they just seem more comfortable, streamlined and breathable to me.

    Athletic for practice. Generally I don't find them as stable and it helps to ingrain keeping my swing in balance.

    Traditional on the course for stability, traction and looks. On the courses I play walking is not an option and therefore athletic is less important.

    Basically all my shoes are athletic type golf shoes. I canít remember even owning a pair of traditional golf shoes, not because I donít like them though. Mainly because I tend to walk most of my rounds or itís muddy out or both, not the best circumstances for a classic golf shoe.

    Athletic vs. traditional isn't even the question that has any bearing on what golf shoes I buy. Reading the comments it looks to be the case for a lot of us commenting.

    I'm a walker and I carry my bag. So comfort is #1. Second is performance. If the shoe isn't going to grip and move properly, why bother? The third is the quality/long term outlook for the shoe. Playing 65-80 rounds a year and practicing 2-3 times a week, I need a shoe I can count on for a while. Only after those three criteria are fully realized will I give even a thought to other factors like style and cost.

    I prefer athletic shoes mostly because traditional donít go well with shorts. If I wore pants more I might be inclined to lean the other way

    All in on the athletic style now, thanks to Puma.

    The traditional style shoes never fit me well; I can live without blisters on my heels.

    It did take awhile when I first went to zero drop shoes but I own 3 pair of True's because they fit me so well. The leather on my Original's has started creasing/cracking though!

    I like both and have both. I do tend to wear more of the FJ SL pro I guess that is more traditional? I am interested in the FJ flex though.

    Dan, do you wear minimal shoes normally? I always wear minimal / barefoot shoes so the TRUE shoes fit well for me.
